What Should Be in an Email Signature?

From Patsy Stewart:

We communicate everyday with our clients and business associates through email. An email signature is just as important as a firm handshake when meeting and greeting someone.  Just like your handshake, your email signature is an opportunity to communicate.

What should be included in an email signature?

  • Valediction (What's this?)
  • Your name
  • Your title
  • Phone numbers
  • Company logo or company name (you could use your photo instead of logo)
  • Website
  • Social network links
  • Industry news or your latest or most popular blog post

Here's how it looks!  Send me an email when you've got your email signature set up – I'd love to see it!
