Can I Have Your Signature, PLEASE?

I am often surprised at the number of professionals who don’t include their contact information (Signature) in their emails. It’s not a big deal when I’m corresponding with a client on a certain project…

But, when the project is over, and I want to contact that person again, nothing is more frustrating that trolling through past emails to get their phone number, and seeing:

Regards,

Bob

(Come On BOB!!!)

I’d really like to know how much time I spend in a year scouring emails for contact info. If you haven’t included a signature file in your emails, I highly encourage you to do so. It will take you less than a minute! 

Here are 4 easy steps using gmail:

1.  Click on the cogwheel in the upper right of the screen.

2.  Select “Settings”

3.  Scroll down to Signature and enter your contact information.  You can choose your font, font size, colors, etc. using the icons above the box.  Here’s an example of my sig:

4.  Scroll to the very bottom of the page and click “Save Changes.”

See there?  Quick and simple.  Not only does a signature look more professional than just a name, I assure you that those who correspond with you will appreciate this.  I hope you’ll take one minute to add one if you haven’t already!!
