Upgrade your gmail signature
Updated: Feb 17
Have you ever wondered how make their Gmail signature look so professional? They have a nice headshot or a logo along with relevant information like their title, website and contact information plus some social media buttons.
Here is how you can have a professional Gmail signature too!
Open Microsoft Word (yes you heard me right)
Open up a new blank document in Word.
Click Insert tab at the top
Choose 1 row and 2 columns Left will be your photo and the right will have all your information
Add your brand colors
Click Table Design tab
Next to Border Styles change the line thickness to 2 1/4 pt
Click Border Painter on the far right
Click on the vertical line separating your 2 cells on the table
Then click-and-drag to select the whole table and copy it (Mac command+c, Windows ctrl+c)
Head over to Gmail
Click the gear icon in the upper right corner
Scroll down to the signature panel
Paste your table (Mac command+v, Windows ctrl+v)
Now you can add your images!
Click in the left cell
Click the Image icon (little grey box with mountains)
Click Upload at the top
Drag-and-drop your image or click the blue "Select a file from your device" button and find your image that way
Click Select in the bottom left
Now you've got your very own professional signature!
You could also repeat steps 13-16 and add social icons to your signature.
