Have you ever tried to create a perfect email signature for your entire company? If so, you probably know that designing a good signature is sometimes far more complex than building a complete website. And this is because different email clients have their very own way of interpreting the HTML code you wrote, which makes the signature design be a far cry from what you expected. However, there are several rules that you can follow to achieve better results. Let’s get started.
To design your signature, you would need an HTML editor. The standard Windows Notepad is enough, but an editor with syntax highlighting and automatic completion (like Notepad++ or Sublime Editor) will be a much better option.
Are you a student? If you are, you probably have to write lots of emails – to the University officials, lecturers, your fellow students, future employers… Those emails give you the opportunity to present yourself well. That is, as a young professional and a person who is serious despite (usually) young age. To achieve that, you need to work on your email signature. While this short fragment of messages gives great opportunities, it is equally easy to harm your personal branding with it. In this article I will show you how to design professional email signatures for students and seize that opportunity.
Make it easy for others to recognize you
It is especially important in conversations within your college or university. You could provide others with your name alone, but if you think about it, it will not be enough.

If you are a business owner, you probably know that in order to become successful, you often have to play more than just one role.

Because of that, a good, professional email signature for business owner must include many elements. This way, owners will be able to make the best use of every business opportunity. In this article, I will present how to design a professional email signature for business owner, along with some examples.
Remember, there is no single email signature design that will guarantee the success. However, there are several guidelines which will boost your chances of creating a unique, interesting email signature. Such a signature will become your personal business card, inviting its viewers to click every link included in it. Here are some tips you should follow:
Grab the attention
Grabbing the attention is one of the most crucial, and at the same time, the most difficult properties of an email signature. If the recipient of your message is not interested by your design, they will be unlikely to click any links you may provide, or even remember the name of your company. It is also very easy to overdo it. In this case, instead of awakening curiosity, the signature will leave a feeling of distaste. Therefore, it is crucial to focus on this aspect first, as it determines the final formatting of the email signature.
A good email signature should be professional and eye catching, but how often do we send a quick email from our iPhone that arrives with the ‘sent from my iPhone’ strapline?

A little info about the tool: like most today’s email signature solutions, it supports HTML content such as tables, images and font formatting, but In contrast to e.g. Google Apps for Business, it also allows for automatic personalization of individual signatures. Limitations include no option to insert the signature directly below the latest email reply or forward and lack of preview on the end-user’s side (learn more…).

I recently came up with a small marketing hack, which lets the Marketing department run and switch ad campaigns in emails without the help of IT. Nothing too complicated (or ominous, as the title might suggest) – some marketers out there may already be doing it. But it saves a lot of time, resources and gives marketers a little more freedom to get creative.
