How to Build a Gmail Email Signature with Social Media Icons

Building an email signature for Gmail with social media icons isn't as hard as many agents think it might be.  The biggest challenge is finding free hosted images that you can embed since Gmail won't let you upload images to their servers. 

To solve the problem, we've loaded the free publicly available social media icons below for you to use in your Gmail signature.
