Email signatures are by nature, very individual. We all have our own tastes and ideas about how we want others to see us. I just found a company that lets you design your own email signature, adding pictures, text and even social icons. It is supposed to work with multiple email providers, but I've only used it with Gmail so far. The name of the company is WiseStamp. I'm not sure how easy the design is with PCs or Macs, but it is very easy to use with the Chromebook. I just downloaded it in the Chrome Store and it works great.
You'll notice in the screenshot below that I wrote a sample email to show what the email signature looks like. It starts with "My Recent Pins" to Pinterest on the right sidebar. You can show your most current pins, 3, 6 or 9 at once. This side bar widget-like display shows up on the right side of the email body. You can also configure this to show at the footer of the email signature.
At the end of the email body is the "traditional" email signature. I have my name, brokerage name, contact information and my website address. after that, the Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn icons show up. Each icon is clickable and will take you to that particular social media website. After that, you'll see the latest post to my Facebook business page that also shows the link to that post.
After that, I have a Twitter button, and then my latest review on Yelp. Following that is a Pinterest button and finally an environmental advisory. Some people may find this signature to be to much information and I am likely to change it as I get feedback from it. I like that fact that someone reading my email has multiple ways to interact with my website and social media pages without having to close my email.
So, what do you think of my email signature? What do you like or dislike? Got a cool email signature? Share it with us and how you did it.
