Howto: Put Your Latest Blog Post In Your Email Signature

A great way to promote your blog is to include your latest posts in your email signature. This way every time someone opens an email from you, they get reminded of your blog and hopefully will pay a visit.

To add Social Networking Links, Blog Posts, Instandt Messenger details and more, you simple need to use two things, Mozilla FireFox and this neat little addon. FireFox is the already hugely popular open source web browser. One of the coolest features of FireFox is all the great addons it has which extend its functionality. Wisestamp is one such plugin that helps you to create enhanced email signatures for your webmail services such as Gmail ,Yahoo Mail ,AOL and Hotmail.

If you are already using FireFox, just {click this link} to begin installing the plugin, if you are not using FireFox, download and install it first here. Once everything is installed, you will see a small icon in the bottom right of the browser (Hint: it look like a small stamp). Click on this to bring up some options > then click on ‘Edit Signature’.

Within the new window panel that pops up you will see a blank form where you can type in your details, plus input fields in the bottom half of the panel where you can add your Social Profiles, Instant Messenger Connections and your RSS feed.

Under the RSS feed you will be able to add your blog RSS feed. From this Wisestamp will then automatically grab your latest post and add it into you email signature.

Hopefully this will help to brighten up your emails. Try it out!

  • Eggplant Digital helped us focus on exactly what we wanted the website to do and how we wanted people to interact with it. Then they built a site that exceeded all our expectations. They met every deadline, even when we missed a few ourselves. These guys are the best in the region without a doubt. They will be my first call next time around and the last call.

  • Since the site went live, a year ago, we’ve seen a significant rise in enquiries for work through the website. This has been a fantastic boost for the growth of our business. Thanks to the Eggplant team!

  • From their input on the initial design to their meticulous care in continuing to tweak the websites until they were exactly what we needed, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the job they did. Both their design work and back-end programming have had a profound impact on our work in China.
