Enriching HTML email signatures

With Bybrand is Bitly, you can track and optimize all the links you add to your team’s email signature.

Here are some ideas for links that you can shorten in an email signature.

  • Links of social pages, such as Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn;
  • Website and blog link present at signature;
  • A link present in the image, such as logo or icons;
  • Accompany clients with campaigns by Bybrand Campaigns.
  • Enrich any text that receives a shortened link with Bitly.

There is an increasing opportunity to improve each link, such as using UTM code, adding extra parameters to advertising URLs, crawling a source, and tracking the results in Google Analytics.

A URL with extended UTM code:

Long URLs are not always well viewed, as in the example above. Bitly makes the process of shortening the link to something smaller and better.

A URL with UTM code short:

In this simple way, with a UTM code, you can attach parameters to a custom URL to track your source, media, and campaign name upon receiving the click on the email signature

Email signatures for marketers

Marketing professionals, by nature, have an intense obsession with metrics. When you need to show results to your client, this is extremely important.

Think about email signature marketing as a traditional off-line channel, similar to SMS; it’s even harder to keep track of results. Using Bitly to shorten all links, the game changes. This simple technique can provide data for you to support the basis for trying and evaluating new channels, such as signing without abandoning the principals.

What is your question about the email signatures performance?

  • Which signature is bringing more traffic to your site?
  • Which links that received the most clicks?
  • Increasing social icons, will generate more social movement?
  • Which employee has the most efficient signature?

The future is near and promising; the integration with Bitly is another critical step to help answer those questions and make your brand more valuable with marketing and branding.

Bitly is free for 10.000 Links, one user, and a custom domain.
