    Adding a promotion image in Gmail

    Michael McGowan

      Hi everyone,

      I am trying to implement a promotional image on Gmail as described in this article here. https://blog.returnpath.com/promoting-meaningful-communication-with-gmail-promotions-update/

       

      This seems to bypass the issues talked about in this thread here https://nation.marketo.com/thread/40803-how-do-we-get-our-company-logo-to-show-in-gmail

       

      I know that Marketo does not allow JSON code in the email so I am using microdata in the body tags to try an implement this.

      Using Litmus' Gmail Promotions Builder tool https://litmus.com/community/gmail-promotions-builder it gave me this code

      (Imagepath is the URL to the image hosted in our Marketo instance)

      <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">

        <meta itemprop="name" content="Gmail" />

        <meta itemprop="logo" content="https://imagepath/image.png" />

      </div>

       

      Yet, when I send an email to my Gmail account, the logo is not showing up. When I check the code in the template I find that Marketo keeps changing the code in the first line to

          <div itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">

      Would this be enough to stop the image from rendering? Has anyone had success in implementing this? Any help would be appreciated.
