10 Examples of Business Email Signatures 2019

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.
