Any FollowUs.com user knows just how convenient it is to have all your links to social media pages in one place. You can devote an entire page to your brand logo and links leading to your social media profiles. FollowUs.com allows users to monitor how visitors interact with their social media pages, learn which page is the most frequently visited and lets the users see where their visitors are from. You also have access to analytics during your social media campaigns, so that you can accurately track which marketing strategy yields the greatest results. And now we’ve added a new email signature feature.
The new feature allows you to quickly add social icons to your email signature. In other words, you are not only improving the aesthetic aspect of your emails, you are also guiding the recipients to your social network profiles in a very efficient manner.
About the new email signature feature
The signature is basically your FollowUs.com link with social icons of all the accounts you have previously added to your FollowUs.com profile. Using the signature is really easy, the whole process is like a quick copy + paste procedure. The size of the signature can be adjusted, so that it doesn’t appear too invasive, or too small for anyone to make out clearly. This feature is compatible with Microsoft Outlook, Gmail, Office 365, iPhone mail, iPad mail and other webmail programs. So, it will be easy for you to add a bit of extra flair to your emails, regardless of the type of device you are using, and since the feature is unobtrusive, you will be able to maintain a professional tone. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter if you are a new user or if you already use the FollowUs service, as every followus.com page is entitled to a free email signature feature.
How it works
As we have mentioned, using this feature is incredibly simple. All you need to do is acess the “Signature” page on your FollowUs profile, select your signature on the screen, and choose your preferred size. Next, right-click on the selected resized image and choose the copy option. The following step depends on what email service you are using at the time.
- Microsoft Outlook – after selecting the “copy” option, click “File” in your Microsoft Outlook, then go to “Options”. Once the menu opens, select “Mail’ (it’s the second one right below “General”). You will see a button called “Signatures”. Click on it, and then right click again in the white box below (the largest one) and select “paste”. Basically that’s it.
- Gmail – if you use gmail, the whole procedure is even simpler. After selecting the “copy” option, right click on an empty space in your email, where you want your signature to be placed, and choose paste, then scroll down and click the “Save Changes” button.
- iPhone/iPad – when you are writing an email on either your iPhone or iPad, use the touch screen mechanic for selecting and copying, and copy your signature. Proceed to the settings menu and scroll down to the “Mail, Contacts, Calendar” and enter. Within the menu you will find a “Signature” option. Scroll down to find it and click on it, then tap on an empty space and “paste” your signature there.
As you can see, it is quite easy to get a hang of the feature, and you are definitely going to have a great time sending your new and improved business emails.
Benefits of the Feature
Now that you have the option to attach social media icons to your email signature, the messages you send to your business partners, clients, and customers will not only look professional, but will also allow the recipient to connect with you on your preferred social media platforms in a very efficient manner.
It’s true that a lot of business emails are based on templates, but by using the FollowUs.com signature feature, you can make them a bit more sophisticated and personal. You will also be able to grow your social media connections, as all it takes is one click for the email recipients to land on your profile pages.
