Have You Checked Your Email Signature lately?

By
Education & Training with Sell with Soul

Okay, since you're back from a splendid (rainy?) holiday weekend, here's an easy assignment for you to ease back into the groove.

Send yourself an email. If you use an auto-signature, check it out. If there's a link, does it work? Seriously, lots of ‘em don't. Is your contact information up-to-date? Everything spelled right? Is there one of those annoying boxes with a red X in the upper right-hand corner (that's supposed to be a fancy-schmantzy graphic)?

If you're a SWS follower, is there a Referral-Begging tagline you forgot about? 

I get emails from real estate agents all day (and all night) long and I see these issues often. Don't give anyone any reason to believe that you're anything other than an Absolutely Fabulous *RCHB!

Okay, back to work. Have a great week!

The sad thing is that when I need to get some agent that I exchanged emails before and I search my folders for their email so I can get their phone number. .some of them do not even  have any information as to how can someone connect with them. ..good point and reminder.

Jennifer, great reminder.  Users who are regulated by regulatory bodies should also ensure that their e-mail signatures are in compliance with local state or provincial law.

Jennifer, once you make up a signature file it is easy to forget about it. I will check my signature file right now. Thanks for the heads up.

It's the little things that get overlooked that can cost us business. Nothing like sending an email to a client or doing drip marketing and having all of the links be messed up. Thanks.

If people are using signatures with links embedded in them, when they leave comments here on AR, they're asking for trouble. A lot of people will consider that a spam comment. There have been plenty of blogs on the subject. The hubbub has died down in the last year, but prior to that, it was a HOT topic around here!

I love your signature.  I had a cool one that I was using for my e-mails.  Just recently I had some people complain that there weren't able to respond to my e-mails.  I checked into this and found out that something with my special signature was causing problems with my e-mails coming back to me.  So I had to delete it.  Are you using your signature here on your e-mails as well?

So... has anyone found anything interesting in their signature they'd like to share with the crowd?

Vicki - I haven't had anyone complain, so I don't think (I hope!) that there hasn't been a problem. However, I think I know what you're talking about - I've gotten some emails with fancy stationary that made it very difficult to respond to them. I remember one that had a black background so when I typed my response, you couldn't see it!

I do use my wonderful new signature logo in my emails, but it goes away when people reply.

Jennifer, you've assigned an enjoyable homework task.  Going out on "signature" patrol shortly!  You get an A+ for simplicity and effect.
