How To Add Images to Email Steps

How To Add Images to Email Steps

Images can easily be added to Email Steps in QuickMail.

There are 2 possible ways to add an image to your emails: 
1. Directly adding an image from your computer.
2. Embedding an image using a direct link.  

Most of the popular image formats are supported: .jpeg, .gif, .svg, .png, etc..

Directly adding an image from your computer

While creating or editing your email step, use the Insert Image button in the editor
-> navigate to the location of the image file on your computer -> select/open the file. 

The image will then be added to the email step.


Embedding an image from a URL 

To embed an image to your email, the image should be hosted on another file host (like your own website). 

A direct URL to the image is needed to embed the image. 
Example of a direct URL/link to an image: https://quickmail.io/wp-content/uploads/log123-min.png

Click the "IMG" button on the email editor toolbar -> you will be prompted to add the image URL.


Hyperlinking images

Once an image has been added to the email body, you can highlight the image and link it to another URL. 
That transforms the image into a clickable image. 



Adding customized images using custom attributes


Inserting images using a custom attribute allows you to send customized images to your prospects depending on their custom attribute value. 
I recommend checking this guide first about custom attributes - How To Use Attributes

Once a custom attribute has been created, you can import prospects with their custom image URL values and map the values to the custom attribute. 
Here's an example sheet:


For this example, I created a custom attribute "cstmimg" and mapped it to the same cstmimg header.


Once the prospects have been imported, you can insert the custom attribute as the URL value. 



When this email is sent out, the prospect will get whichever image is associated with the custom attribute value. 

You can also truncate the custom attribute value if you're using a single file host (like a WordPress website). 

Example:

If you have the following example image URLs:
http://website.com/wp-content/uploads/Sand-cat.jpg
http://website.com/wp-content/uploads/Caracal.jpg
http://website.com/wp-content/uploads/bobcat.jpg

You can just use Sand-cat.jpg, Caracal.jpg, and bobcat.jpg as the custom attribute values and 
use http://website.com/wp-content/uploads/{{prospect.custom.cstimg}} as the IMG url.
