We all have one, so call it what you will. Your John Hancock, autograph, inscription, endorsement, seal, scrawl, or our favorite…your ink(y). It’s more than just a few lines on a paper. Whether it’s the curve of your letters or the middle name that’s carried through your family for decades, your signature is an important part of who you are. The same is true in a professional setting. With each message you send, your reputation is on the line. The right signature line not only lets people reach you, but it can connect them to the brand and messaging you so passionately represent.
The Importance of Email Signatures
The common use of business email didn’t begin until the 1980s and 1990s, with personal email following soon after. At some point in the journey the email signature line was born. This simple block of text, images, and links was originally crafted to provide recipients with the sender’s contact information. Today, however, the email signature line is seen as a small but mighty marketing tool that can help to elevate your company’s brand recognition, advertising, website traffic, and efficiency.
Individuals might create a singular signature line with the help of their email client. A small business with just a handful of employees might leave it up to the marketing team to create a common email signature for staff to upload. Larger organizations are commonly looking to third-party vendors to help them design and manage a consistent set of email signatures for all employees that often includes a legal disclaimer for regulatory compliance.
As with most things, there is a positive and a negative side to using individual email signature providers. For one, it adds another company to the list of vendors that must be managed. Secondly, with every third-party touching your emails, the risk of a cybersecurity incident is amplified.
