Signoff like a Boss with a Professional Email Signature!

A signature tells you something about a personality. Just as two people rarely write alike, they also sign differently. But the digital age and the email signature have reduced the way you sign-off on a mail to a footnote. Just a typed name, and maybe a phone number or a Twitter handle – how utterly dull.

So, without further ado, let’s look at how you can benefit from the power of email signatures.

Benefits of using an Email Signature

  1. An email signature shows your openness to communicate.
  2. A well designed email signature conveys professionalism.
  3. An email signature is a promotion tool for a business, a website/blog, a book
  4. An email signature with the relevant information is your short-biography.
  5. Its also a social networking tool, just like a business card.
  6. More than all its a brand you create.

The Absolute Basics of an Email Signature

A neat email signature says just one simple thing – you care about the way you communicate. So, a basic email signature without a touch of pretension should answer who you are, what you do, and how you can be contacted. I personally prefer an email signature that is minimal and does not hog space. Our attention spans being limited as it is, I feel you could start with these points…

  1. Your full name.
  2. Your contact information.
  3. Your personal or professional website/blog.
  4. Your business address (or any other you might want to include).
