10 Examples of Business Email Signatures for 2020

Posted by Christin on January 10, 2019

As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The same goes for making an impression online. Research has shown that online visitors form a first impression of your brand in less than two-tenths of a second. In only 2.6 seconds, that visitor’s eyes focus to reinforce that first impression. Knowing this, it’s important to use any and every opportunity to present yourself in a positive light online, especially through email communications. One such opportunity that is often overlooked is email signatures. The best email signatures go beyond just your name and contact information by showcasing you and showing off your brand. So, what are some great email signature examples? We’ve laid out a bunch for, plus some tips for success. 1. Keep it Simple Not everyone needs an elaborate email signature format to accompany their communications. Sometimes, simple and elegant will do the trick. The key elements of a professional email signature include your name, title, company and phone number. You may also include an address and your company’s website. But don’t include your email address—that’s redundant and unnecessary. Here’s a simple email signature example: 2. Use Color To add visual interest, even to a basic email signature, try using 1-2 colors drawn from your brand, logo or any graphical elements you might use.  More often than not, more than two colors start to clash and become distracting, so unless you have a particularly good eye for design, stick with one or two…

How to Find the Best Free Email Service in 2020

Posted by Christin on January 8, 2019

If you were to look through your personal contact list right now, it’s probably safe to say that the majority of your contacts will have an email address from one of two services: Google’s Gmail (@gmail.com) or Microsoft’s Outlook.com (@outlook.com). This is unsurprising, considering Gmail has 15.8% and Outlook.com has 6.7% of the email client market share. Both of these free email services are backed by tech giants—Google and Microsoft—and have become the top contenders when choosing what service to use for your personal or small business email needs. But with the two constantly neck and neck in the email race, how do you decide which one is best for you? Google’s Gmail service is the older and most popular of the two—it has over 1 billion monthly active users as of February 2016. Because it’s been around longer, and it has a bigger audience, Gmail is generally considered the industry leader in free email services. Microsoft, on the other hand, launched the free version of Outlook.com in 2012 and has been refining the service ever since. It now has more than 400 million active users and a robust suite of features that rival the competition. On the surface, Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook.com seem pretty similar. It’s only when you look at the details that you discover just how much the two differ. And it’s in these details that you’ll find the features that matter most to you to help you choose the right option for your personal or…

119 Facts You Need To Know About Email Marketing in 2020

Posted by Christin on January 6, 2019

In the age of modern email marketing, there is a ton of competition for the attention of your prospective customers. The secret to being successful in this arena is to write an email that customers are actually going to open, read and click through to conversion. But what kind of email marketing strategy works best? Not only do you need to know the best time and day when to send out your emails. There are a few more things you should consider in your emailing strategy to increase your opening and conversion rate. Personalize Your Emails It has been proven that emails with a personalized subject line are opened 26% more than emails with generic subjects. Simply putting the recipient’s name in the subject increases the open rate by nearly 15%. You can easily do this if you use an email service like Aweber or MailChimp. This personalized approach to emails improves the click-through-rate (CTR) by 14% and your conversions by 10%. That’s a lot for just one simple tweak! Segment Your Email List Similar to personalizing your emails is segmenting your email list. Segmenting your list basically means separating your subscribers into groups that characterize their target markets. For example, having women aged 25-40 with kids in one group and women 20-35 without kids in another. This helps to better address the reader’s interests. Marketers have experienced 29% higher open rates, 28% lower unsubscribe rates and 60% more clicks from segmenting their email campaigns. Include Offers and Incentives With so…

4 Email Templates to keep in touch in 2019

Posted by Christin on January 2, 2019

The art of crafting the perfect “keep in touch email” Ah, the dreaded “keeping in touch” email. It often comes across as clunky, or worse: downright awkward. How do you reach out to someone for merely the sake of “keeping up the relationship”? It’s easy with friends and family–you just reach out with a specific memory or sentiment, and voilá! You’re back in the swing of things in no time. What if you could do the same thing with your business relationships? These working relationships often blur the lines of business and friendship. While that may not be the case with all contacts, at a very minimum, there is frequently something you remember about a specific person. This could be simply his love for golf or her cat’s name is Aspen. Whatever little nugget of information you have, keep it at the forefront of your mind as you craft your email! Hints and Tricks There are a variety of situations that may necessitate a touching base email. You may want to stay in touch with an old coworker who has left the company. An old superior or higher-up may have mentored you, and you wish to reach out every so often. Potentially, a virtual client–someone you’ve never met face-to-face–is your intended recipient. Maybe you met a person at an event, and want to reach out electronically. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. When crafting this type of email, it’s best to follow these hints…
