Are you working towards making your brand or business an extra level of credible, professional and personable?
Earlier this week while I was corresponding with an upcoming DropMock podcast special guest, I realized the end of her emails ended with a professional headshot & links to her website and social media profiles.
It looked amazing so I decided to create my own Gmail email signature as well!
In this blog post, I am going to show you the simple steps for how I did it. If this has been on your mind to do for awhile, take fast action because it’s pretty easy to set up but truly looks fantastic!
Step 1: Open up your Gmail inbox
Step 2: Look in the top righthand corner for the gear icon
Step 3: Click on settings
Step 4: Stay in the general tab & scroll down close to the end of the page
Step 5: Find the area that says “signature”
Step 6: Make sure you’ve selected “signature” instead of the “no signature” option
Step 7: Use the center text box to create a unique, professional signature
Step 8: You can add a headshot, text and even clickable links
Step 9: Scroll to the bottom of the same page and click on “save changes”
Step 10: Compose a new email to test what your signature looks like
Here are a few helpful tips that I would like to mention…
1.) Make your signature photograph consistent with your brand! Whatever photo you use on social media would be a best option for this!
2.) Don’t include more than two clickable links. These links will turn bright blue & it won’t look as professional the more you have in your signature.
3.) I wouldn’t advise putting all of your social media links in the signature. An example of this would be, soundcloud.com/sallysuepodcast, instagram.com/sallysue, facebook.com/sallysue. Choose only one or two that you want to focus on! There’s just not enough space for every single link! I chose to include my website my Instagram username.
I hope this blog post is super helpful & that you’re able to create a unique signature that fits your brand or business!
