Best Email Signature Practices
1. Make sure the social networks you’re including are relevant. Ask yourself if they bring any value to your prospects. What will they learn about you or your business by visiting your profile?
2. Separate the email signature from the rest of your email with “–” It’s a standard that’s easy to follow.
3. Never use an image as your email signature. It increases the chance of you email getting caught by recipients’ spam filters and makes it really difficult to copy/click on your information.
