How to Add Social Media Icons to a Gmail Signature

Adding social media icons to a Gmail signature is easier than you may think.

Here’s a quick guide to help you through the process.

Why Should I Add Social Media Icons to My Email Signature?

There are many reasons you may want to add social media icons to your Gmail signature. For example:

    • To get new followers and fans for very little work.
    • To add some social proof to your email outreach.
    • To make your email signatures look more professional. Check out these email signature examples for some inspiration.
      Step 1. Head over to Google Images and do a quick search for the social media icons you’re after. If you’re active on many different social media sites, decide which are the most relevant ones to include.

      Step 2. Check that you’re logged into the right Gmail account – you don’t want to add your personal social media accounts to your business email.

      Step 3. Click on the gear icon in the top right-hand corner and click See all settings.

      Step 4. On the General tab of the Settings page, scroll down to Signature.

      Step 5. Click on the signature you’re looking to edit.

      Step 6. Now you need to click on the Insert Image option.

      Step 7. Upload the icons (images) that you downloaded from Google earlier.

      Step 8.  Select the image or images that you want to upload.

      Step 9. Make sure you select the image you just uploaded by clicking on it. Then, click on the link icon that looks like a chain, to the left of the image icon.

      Step 10. Grab the URL of the social media profile that you want to have in your signature and paste that in.

      Step 11. That’s it! If you have several social media icons and accounts you need to add to your signature, you just need to repeat these steps for each.

      Keep Multiple Gmail Signatures in Check with Right Inbox

      Having multiple signatures can be very useful for several reasons.

      For example, if you use your email both professionally and personally, it can be helpful to have two separate email signatures.

      Work in PR or outreach? Having multiple email signatures that can help you close deals is super handy.

      However, swapping between signatures natively in Gmail can be a bit of a pain. That’s where Right Inbox comes in. With Right Inbox, you can switch between signatures instantly with a single click – and less time messing around means more work gets done.
