How do I add an image to my emails?
You can insert any images like GIFs or still images, but you'll need to host them somewhere like on your website or an image hosting platform.
Adding too many images in your email can increase the chance of your messages going to spam or getting flagged by prospects as spam.
Plus, many prospects have mail providers that don't load images until the prospect confirms they want to see them.
✅ If you already have a URL for your image, skip to the steps below.
⚠️ If your image lives on your computer and it's not hosted online, check out our how-to guide for hosting your images, this article provides step-by-step instructions on hosting images using Google Drive.
How to insert images into your email
1. To insert an image, first make sure your image is hosted somewhere that can give you a public link.
2. Once you have a public link to your image, you should test to make sure that the link you have is really public. One easy way to do this is to open an "incognito window" in the Chrome browser, paste your link, and see if it loads.
3. In Mailshake, while editing your campaign message, click the Insert Image button. It looks like a picture of mountains and the sun.
4. Then just paste your public link to your image in the Source textbox.
