Email branding in eM Client

What’s Email Branding

Email branding fits your brand elements such as your name, logo, contact information, links to websites, social media handles or app stores into your outgoing emails.

In addition, you can also adjust your emails’ general formatting to fit your brand’s design manual by using particular font types, colors or visuals in your outgoing messages.

The mix of these elements helps can boost brand awareness and acquisition potential.

Email Branding options in eM Client

There are two areas to focus on when customizing your emails to accommodate your brand.

  • Email Signatures: the most visible area of your email with the highest impact – and that’s exactly where to put everything brand-related. Signatures can be automatically appended to the bottom of your email messages. You can create and save any number of signatures in eM Client and select particular signatures to be used for all your future emails, for each email account.

  • Email Templates: sets of font and color rules and settings that can be defined and stored in eM Client and then collectively applied to your email messages.

You can customize the font colors, background color, even add a background picture according to your brand’s guidelines.
