How do I host images for email?
When you send emails, images don't actually live in the email. You might be used to big platforms like Google or Microsoft that actually auto-host images for you when you drag and drop an image into your email.
When sending via Mailshake, you'll just need to make sure your images are hosted. We've outlined a couple of options for hosting images below. 😊
Host your image on a hosting platform - Easy
Photobucket offers paid plans that make sure your images will always be live and won't show up as broken images in your emails. With a service like this, it's easy to upload your photos and get a public URL that you can use to add a photo to your emails.
Host your image on Google Drive - Medium
This option can sometimes be a little trickier since Google Drive doesn't make it easy for you to embed these images in HTML format, though it is possible with a little extra work. Check out this guide for more info.
Host your image on your web server - Hard
This one isn't for the faint of heart. If you're familiar with web servers and hosting, this is a good option. But if you're not sure where to start, we'd recommend checking with your IT person or whoever manages your website. They'll be able to help you with this.
