An impactful email signature is essential in order to optimise customer relations and increase a company’s visibility. A signature enables you to conclude an email in an attractive, pointful way on all your employees’ emails. It’s a traffic generator in its own right and an integral part of a well-thought-out digital marketing strategy. But to stay up-to-date, you need to boost your communication by adapting your content on a regular basis. To help you do so, we give you tips on how to script your email signatures thanks to dynamic automated campaigns.
Why use an email signature ?
To have an effective email signature, it’s essential to understand the importance of email signatures in business. Emails are a company’s primary communication channel, with 75 emails exchanged by your employees every day. It’s the most popular channel because it’s the least intrusive. It’s also a safe bet as far as obtaining information goes, with 61% of reasons for opening them. So this primary position provides great marketing opportunities. Ultimately, an email signature has a significant impact on a company’s visibility and sales.
Among other things, it enables you to:
👉 Make yourself known,
👉 Expand your network,
👉 Stand out from the crowd,
👉 Facilitate contact,
👉 Increase your sales.
An email signature is composed of interlocutor and company information, accompanied by a marketing campaign in banner format.
Companies too often omit this second part, which is nonetheless a major asset. Displaying advertisements on your employees’ emails is useful in terms of visibility. It must fit naturally into the body of the email, highlighting email content and the ad alike. It’s an effective way of expanding your community. The banner will enable you to relay essential messages and generate traffic via a redirection link. A clickable banner promotes your company by highlighting your expertise and your news. Here are some examples of content to provide:
👉Your product or service launches,
👉Your white paper or eBook,
👉Your future events,
Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive; what news you disseminate will depend on your communication strategy. As a reminder, email is the primary communication channel, so your email signature’s purpose is to improve your customer acquisition and retention performance. On average, adding a clickable link to your signature can generate over 20% of new business opportunities.
