Email signatures can be a useful way of providing information to everyone you send a message to. But crafting one that is just right for you is not always easy. What’s your email signature look like?
Rule number one – ditch the default “Sent from my iPhone/Nexus?Whatever” message.
I’m a fan of keeping it simple with my name, a contact number, twitter handle, website and email address. I don’t like images of corporate logos as they take up screen space and bandwidth – which is an issue when I travel and am bandwidth constrained.
I quite like this statement from Geek Girl Academy, which helps take the pressure off people who feel compelled to respond to email 24/7.
What do you think a perfect email signature looks like? Does your business have specific rules that are good or dumb?
