Whether you are looking for a way to highlight your professional credentials when contacting others by email or would simply like to let your personality shine through, an email signature is the perfect solution. Discover how to set up an automatic email signature today.

What is an email signature?

An email signature is automatically placed at the bottom of each email to sign off your correspondence. It is particularly useful when you’re trying to convey your professionalism and stand out with your professional email – think of it as your virtual business card!

Its usefulness, however, is not limited to business scenarios. You may also wish to include a signature with your name and preferred contact information in your personal correspondence. The signature generator also lets you highlight your interests or customize your email experience. Animal lover? – why not shout it out! Or you could include a saying or quotation that’s meaningful to you. Make sure, however, that such information is included in your personal email address signature only.

What to include in your professional email signature

An email signature can influence each contact’s perception of you; therefore, it is worthwhile to spend a bit of time to get it just right. A professional email signature should be informative and simple. It should always include basic information such as your name, position or title, and how to contact you, alongside any links to the product or content you are trying to promote. It may be worth mentioning that you should not include personal information such as home address, personal social media profiles, or personal phone number – unless you want all your business contacts to have that information. And remember, less is more! Go for a clean and cohesive look for your virtual business card.
