Are Email Signatures a Thing of The Past?

9 replies
Placing links to business at the closing
of your email - is that like an early 21st
century thing? Do you all still apply these
strategies to direct traffic?

With email providers like Google controlling
when your signatures get seen, I am wondering
if this is a waste of time.

    Never underestimate e-mail. I have not conversed with a company yet that doesn't use a signature.

    I always have my signature in my emails. I have it set automatically so I don't forget.

    in my opinion, email signature is an important parts of the email content where your subscribers are able to interact with you thru it or you can put a little affiliate link to promote your products...

    there is no right or wrong in it...

    You 100% should use an email signature. But it doesn't have to be a boring link. I use my signature to brand my name, and offer social sharing options. Gets some good social signals to my stuff, and adds my brand-able mug to every email.

    Signatures won't be the reason you get rich... but they help!

    How does Gmail have an impact on signatures reaching their inboxes? If any.

    As you may know they don't always show automatically.

    I think, It could be good to use Signature. At least you can send some info to your destination into this way too. For example about sales promotion or smth else

    Email signature can help to build email list. Add a link to your and your employees' signatures that leads people to a landing page where they can sign up for your mailing list.
