Adding a Personal Email Signature Photo

Your email signature is valuable real estate. We believe strongly in this at Xink; so strongly, in fact, that our platform has been designed and tailored around this concept. Our goal is to help your company leverage its emails for branding, marketing, promotions, outreach and more. But ultimately, we believe that your email signatures can benefit more than just your business – it can be of benefit to your employees and clients as well. And one way to do this is with a personalized email signature photo.

A personal email signature photo can help your team form an invaluable human connection with your customers, clients, peers, business partners, and other email recipients. Without a photo, you and your team members are faceless entities on the other side of an email message. And with email and instant message becoming the go-to forms of communication, there’s less and less opportunity to form a relationship over the phone. So what’s the next best thing? A personal photo in your email signature.

The benefits are many, and include:

  • Helps with client and peer recognition
  • Helps personalize your messages
  • Helps create a sense of trust and authority
  • Helps long-term relationship building

See for yourself the difference a personal photo can make in an email signature. Compare this rather stale and impersonal email signature with one featuring a personal photo.

An email signature photo can turn a bad email signature into a decent one, and transform a good email signature into one that is brilliant and memorable. Having an email signature photo isn’t a requirement, and perhaps shouldn’t even be your first priority – you may want to leverage that real estate for campaigns and promotions first – but if you have the photos and the real estate, why not take advantage of personalized email signature photos?
