#2: Email Signatures

Email

Email signatures are an old chestnut. It’s possible you’re already using one. If you are, is it being used to its fullest potential?

Try thinking beyond the “list mentality.” Using your contact info is a good start but showing a little personality piques reader’s interest. It differentiates you and your business from the crowd of competitors filling up anyone’s inbox.

Content provider Lifewire asserts that the average office worker receives 121 emails daily. Stand out and be memorable by using a statistic or talking point in your email signature.

Is your business the largest producer of donuts in the state? Put it down. Is a large share of your workforce comprised of veterans? Let people know. If your business has won an award or distinguished itself in some way shout it from the mountaintops (or at least the email signature).
