What’s at the bottom of emails you send? Nothing, right?
What do you think will happen if you send me an email asking for an introduction to someone, but that target person can’t easily respond to you?
Right. (Please click on the picture above to read the entire article)
An email signature is a simple, yet essential method to help others introduce you to potentially important individuals. It’s also another method of continuing your brand identity. Make it easy for people to get hold of you by including a signature at the bottom of your emails and smartphone messages. It’s simple. All email services and smartphones are similar. Here’s how it works for Gmail:
- Click on the gear on the top right-hand side of your screen.
- Click settings.
- Scroll down the next page to where it reads Signature on the left-hand side of the page.
- Include the following (at least)
- Desired job title
- Phone number(s)
- LinkedIn address
- Click Save Changes (you’ll have to scroll down).
Make it easy for people to contact you! You will get contacted more often.
Note: Don’t forget to do the same on your Smartphone!
