We have all seen them. The blocks of text at the bottom of emails where the sender shares their business information. Have you ever wondered what it is and why it is necessary? That informative block of text is called an email signature. An email signature helps identify you, your business, and what you represent. It should follow your business’s branding guidelines to create a consistent brand image. It is a great way to help your email marketing strategies.
An email signature at the bottom of your emails shows that you are professional, and your email will not look spammy. It will give the receiver a sense of trust when opening your emails and will help build a relationship with your sender.
Most email signatures include professional information about the sender’s business, such as their website address and business phone number. Your email signature can be considered your secret marketing strategy to create a stronger and more consistent brand presence. Here is an example.
You can see it has a professional image and contains other vital information. It’s chic and doesn’t include too much information.
A business email signature should be simple but informative. Too much information can cause your email signature not to load on some users’ devices, especially if it’s a large image or video file. Remember to keep it simple and add only vital information.
An email signature brands every single email you send. How cool is that! It gives the reader a positive vibe and gives you credibility, allowing you to make a long-lasting impression. I can’t tell you how many emails I receive from businesses with no email signature. They look so impersonal and spammy. Don’t be that person.
