We send more emails today than we ever have before. And if you’re not already using your email to build your personal brand, then I’ve got a few tips for you to make better connections through your email signature.
I don’t know about you, but for many years, I didn’t think of my email signature as being part of my branding. It was just the usual;
and then my address and phone number.
But, that’s changed now…
To make my email signature stand out more, I’ve personalized it and added a lot more details to it than I used to have.
1. Social Profiles
One thing your email signature should do for you is to make it easy for the recipient to get in touch with you and connect. Here I’m not only thinking about having your phone number in there, but have a link to your LinkedIn profile and other social media profiles if it’s relevant.
2. Your Strengths
List your top strengths in your signature, and let the recipient know what you’re great at. That will help the people you correspond with to get an idea of what you bring to the table and what it is you’re all about.
3. Your Passions
To get a little better knowledge of what you’re all about, try to list the things you’re most passionate about within your field.
4. Your Value Proposition
It would be awesome to write your Value Proposition in your email signature as well. Having your Value Proposition in your email signature will communicate what you do and the value you bring to the table. That should spark the interest of the recipient, and want them to get to know more about you.
5. Show Your Best Smile
That is something I think way too few people do. To personalize your emails, you should show your best smile to the recipients. There’s no better way to connect with the people than to give them a face to go with the message they’ve just read.
To give you some inspiration, you can take a look at my email signature, all you have to do is sign up, and I’ll send you my best career and branding tips as a bonus.
I know you’ve got things to do, so thank you for taking the time to read this.
Final Thoughts on Your Email Signature
Taking advantage of and using your email signature to connect with people you communicate with through email will help build relationships faster, simply because they put a face to go with your name.
So, do yourself a favor and create an outstanding email signature that will help anyone you email to know how you can be of value to them.
