If you’re a Mac user and have chosen to use Mac Mail as your preferred email client, then it’s time to master the art of creating and optimizing your Mac signature. We’ve previously covered a comprehensive list of Mac Mail signature wins and fails, but now we’ll focus specifically on three key elements of a great signature:

  • Adding an image to your Mac Mail signature
  • Adding image links to your Mac Mail signature
  • Adding hyperlinks to your Mac Mail signature

Let’s get started!

Adding an image to your Mac Mail signature

Before we walk through the steps, let’s take a moment to appreciate just how important it is to have an image in your signature. According to our data here at WiseStamp, email signatures with an image get 32% more clicks than those without. Of course, the type of photo you choose to add also has a huge impact. Choose one that best represents you or your business, whether it’s a logo, headshot or product shot.

Adding image links to your Mac Mail signature

Now that you’ve added an image to your signature, let’s look at how to add a link to that image. Hyperlinking the image in your email signature is very useful for driving conversions. You can, for example, create a banner with a specific call-to-action (“Join our newsletter”) or simply drive traffic to your website by hyperlinking your logo. You can get as creative as you like with it once you learn how it’s done. So, here we go:

1. Open the Mac Mail app; go to “Preferences”

4. To add a hyperlink to the image, select the image, go to “Edit”, then click “add link” and enter the URL into the box. You can also use the shortcut “Command + K.”
