Have you set up an email signature for your business?
An email signature with your web address looks professional and is easy to set up. Email Signatures are a great way to reinforce your branding and provides instant contact information for the reader. If you are not sure how to set up an email signature use the “Help” function in your Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Express or whatever you are using.
You can change the size and color of the font, add your logo and finally your web address. Make sure you test it and that the link works!
With the amount of junk mail and scams out there if you are serious about creating a professional image you will go to the effort of making up an email signature that include all the details of your business and your web address. I personally find it hard to take an email seriously if there is no ownership. If someone is asking me for a quote or a website question I am much more likely to take the enquiry seriously if I know that I am dealing with a real person from a real business.
If you have multiple interests to do with your business you can make up multiple email signatures to suit each one. Pick one as the default and use it for your most common enquiries and then the other ones you can select and use them when necessary.
If you want to add your facebook, twitter, linkedin, google+ or pinterest links this is a great place to do it. In my signature I have stuck with text links but you could easily add your favorite social icons/images and link them to your accounts.
If you would like to have more than one email signature set up – for example one for your friends, one for your business this is possible too.
Set up multiple email signatures and whoever you send the most emails too make this the default. When you want to change the email signature just right click and select the one you want to use.
Not only can you set up the email signature with your business details but you can also promote any specials or other information your client may be interested in. Once the special or promotion has finished just remove/delete it from your email signature.
As an example here’s my email signature:
