Having a professional and coordinated corporate image is a fundamental aspect to ensure that a company transmits credibility and trust. An email signature is perhaps the simplest and most affordable tool for ensuring your image is coherent in the eyes of your customers. This is why it is important that all emails sent from different users of a company have a matching signature, which you can centrally manage so that users don’t have to do it themselves.
Oftentimes, users are left free to independently set up a signature for their inbox. In the best hypothesis, each user will set something of their liking, that will very likely be different from the rest of the team’s. In the worst case scenario, a signature is not set at all or it looks so ugly that it puts off your whole ‘corporate image’. When this happens, it is advisable to set up a unified template on all user devices to centrally manage any changes or updates. Then, users will fill in their personal data and they’ll be all set.
There are software solutions that allow you to manage email signatures from a single location, but they usually only work in conjunction with a dedicated email server. Besides, these software can be pretty expensive (consider having to pay for licenses, installation, and maintenance).
When a web agencies takes care of the company’s brand identity, they will usually create a signature template for company users as well. If you are a web agency, we recommend you to you read our technical article on how to make a professional email signature.
