Branded Email Signature

November 27, 2017

 

 

Students & Professionals,

 

You need an email signature!

An email signature shows professionalism, contributes to your brand, and provides useful information to the recipient.

 

It can tell them how you want to be addressed (Example: Katherine vs. Katy)

 

It can tell them your credentials (PhD = Dr.)

 

It can tell them how to contact you (phone, email, office vs personal)

 

It can lead them to websites and profiles to learn more about you

 

 

 

If you have any issues creating your custom email signature or need help with your professional or businesses brand, contact me – I would love to help you!

 

 

<WHAT YOU SHOULD INCLUDE>

 

Students, you can include the following:

1.First and Last Name

<HOW YOU CAN MAKE A QUALITY SIGNATURE>

 

Here are simple ways to create professional email signatures for your desktop and phone.

 

 

No matter if you use Gmail or Outlook, you can create an email signature using Google Docs with active links, logos, and great design. (You do not have to have a logo in your email signature. You can just have a well-designed text only signature that still serves your well.

 

{Side Note: I do not recommend adding a picture of yourself to your email signature. It takes up too much room, often makes the email harder to download on phones. People will find what you look like through your LinkedIn and social media links.}

 

I encourage my clients to follow this easy tutorial from Jessica Stansberry to create their own. (image)

 

She even has a You Tube video to walk you through the process! CLICK HERE

 

 

 

 

 

If you don’t have the time to figure it out or need help with the design of your email signature –

email me and I can create one for your computer and phone!

 

 

<CREATING AN EMAIL SIGNATURE ON THE PHONE>

 

 

You can still have a custom email signature when you send an email from your phone.

It does not need to be as lengthy as your desktop/computer email signature but it should still provide the information your recipient needs to contact you or find your company info.

 

I recommend removing “Sent from IPhone” – give them something personalized!
