A professional and briefly informative email signature is very important for anyone who sends a lot of business emails. Including bloggers. You want your recipients to know who you are (name, position, and company), as well as all the methods they can use to reach you. Secondary email, social media, or phone number if you’re OK with giving it out.
A simple text email is all you need, but I like to take mine a few steps farther. Really, which would you prefer? This:
There is nothing wrong with the first one. It definitely gets the job done. But I feel like the second one makes a much better impression, plus it draws attention to everything at the bottom of the email. I don’t know about everyone else, but once I finish the email, I don’t look at anything beyond the salutation unless it’s necessary. Half the time, I skim the emails, anyway. So anything to draw more attention to it, right!? Right!
You might think I needed someone to design that signature for me, but I did it myself! It’s much easier than it looks, and I intend to show you exactly how I did it.
