How many emails do you send out every week?
Most likely a fair few
But are you making the most of them?
With every email, you send out, you could be, and should be, encouraging the recipient to visit your online spaces.
An email signature is perfect for this!
It’s like a business card for your email. You can include relevant info, and also update it really easily.
Today, I’m going to show you how to go about creating your email signature in Gmail.
In your Gmail account, head over to settings (the little cog in the right-hand corner), in the drop-down menu, select settings.
Scroll down until you come to an empty text box. Make sure to check the little circle, so your signature will be visible.
So in this area, you can add any text or links that you would like to be featured at the bottom of any emails you send out.
You can include your name, website, phone number, newsletter sign up…anything you think would be relevant.
You can also add images…so this is where we’re going make your signature look awesome!!!
Using your favourite graphic design software create a new document measuring 300 x 200px.
It’s a good idea to stay consistent with your business branding. I added my logo, but you don’t have to, maybe you’d just like to use your brand colours.
Add your name, profession, and website. I wouldn’t add too much info here as you don’t want it to become overcrowded.
You could also add an image of yourself to one side.
When you’re happy with your design save the image as a .png file.
Here’s what I decided to go with.
Head back over to Gmail > Settings. In the text box click on the insert image option and upload your file.
You can now add a link to the image if you want, I added my website. Left click the image, below a little box will appear with the option to change | remove the link. Click
Scroll down and click save changes. Click compose
That’s it! Your info card will go out with all emails you send from now on.
Change it up as and when.
I’ve also created a few resources that you might find helpful. Head on over to the resource library to unlock cheatsheets and layout templates.
