Email is one way we communicate with one another. And there is a lot of email that we read on a daily basis. I think that on a normal day I go through about 100 – 200 emails. Sorting and looking at each one of them to make sure they are important or spam. So email is a big part of our lives and it is an effective way to communicate.
So you should take advantage of this wonderful tool by implementing an email signature to help drive traffic to your website. A good email signature will allow you to give a blurb about your business and website with every email that you send out or reply to. For instance the email signature I would have for the Online Business Reef would look something like this:
GREG CHAN | 801-555-5555 | 138 E 12300 S #C195, Draper, UT 84020 |
email@example.com | www.onlinebusinessreef.com

As you can see the email signature above has the following elements:
- Contact Information: Name, Address, Phone Number, Email and Web Address.
- Company Logo
- Email Disclaimer
Each of these parts of the email signature are important. You can add as many web addresses and other contact information you want on your email signature. The logo can be as big or as small as you need. The email disclaimer is very important to make sure that your email is protected if it is sent in error. You can add a signature to any email program like outlook, gmail, and hotmail.
So go ahead and use this easy tip to get more traffic to your website by adding an email signature to your emails.
