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.


Now how to add an image to your Mac Mail signature:

1.  Open the Mail app in Mac OS; go to the “Mail” menu → “Preferences”


2.  Choose the “Signatures” tab, then click the [+] plus button to add a new signature, or select a signature you’ve already created


3. Open your “Finder” to locate the image you want to add to your signature; select the image and then drag and drop it into the Signature section of the Mail app
