The art of the mobile email signature
It is a good idea, especially when sending business emails from your mobile device, to use a similar signature to your home or work desktop email. If you want to state within your mobile email signature that it is sent from a mobile email account, in order for recipients to know that you are currently out of the office, then that is fine and can certainly serve an important purpose; however, ensure you retain a professional tone. A business email, even from a mobile email account, should always remain professional in order to create the right impression.
So what should you include in your professional mobile email signature?
- Your full name and professional title or position
- Full contact information: this includes phone number and email address
- Company website and social media buttons
What shouldn’t you include?
- Don’t include the brand of your phone. It doesn’t matter if it was sent from an iPhone or Samsung. Change the signature to something more meaningful that isn’t merely a brand promotional message.
- Do not include the “excuse any errors” disclaimer. This makes you seem careless and cheapens the value of the email that you are sending.
- Don’t include statements like “consider the environment”, and don’t include a full company address when sending mobile email. These are fine for desktop, but a mobile email template should be kept succinct.
Mobile email etiquette: Do
Do keep it simple. Not only is typing out a long email hard work on your thumbs, it is not really suited to a mobile email template that places emphasis on speed and convenience.
- It’s best to reply only to really important emails that require immediate attention and send lengthy emails from your desktop at work or home where you can dedicate the appropriate amount of time to them.
- If you want to reply to an important message right away, consider sending a mobile email acknowledging that you have received this email and will respond as soon as you are back in front of your computer.
- Do double check before hitting the send button. There is a high possibility that you will accrue typos or autocorrect failures when sending email from a mobile; that is the nature of the device and the reason for all of the clichéd mobile email signatures excusing this.
So, do some double duty and check everything over thoroughly before hitting send, especially when it is a professional email where accuracy is important.
Mobile email etiquette: Don’t
Don’t forget the subject line of the email, and make sure that you still start the email with a greeting and formal sign off. Writing your email from a mobile does not give you the option to take shortcuts on conventional email etiquette.
Don’t abbreviate or use SMS language, and don’t use excessive punctuation or emoticon punctuation. This type of language should never be used within a professional context, even from a mobile email account. If you are writing from your mobile device, avoid the urge to use these popular shortcuts.
