Add a Small Browser Icon or Fav Icon to My MemberGate Site?

If you have a logo designed for your site, you can feature it on the browser tab, in bookmarks and it can be pinned to your members mobile homescreens

For example on Membergate.com you will see our 'infinity logo' in the browser tab and if you add it to bookmarks

This icon is called a 'Favicon' short for "favorite icon"

Encourage Your Members to "Pin" your site to their home screen

1. If your members use their phones and smaller devices to access your site, you can encourage them to save your site on their phone.

This is usually called 'pin to home'

You will need to create the different icons and image sizes required by Apple and Google platforms

You then need to add the code to get the phones to save the correct image icon from your site to their device!

 

2. Encourage your members to "Pin" your site to their mobile to save time

Do it yourself and screen-cap the images like this:
