Email signatures may promote simplicity and professionalism, but that doesn’t mean writers can’t represent themselves creatively. BrandMyMail helps them pull it off.
Appearing at the bottom of all emails, e-mail signatures provide us with valuable contact information of the writer. Most people would say they’re nothing more than electronic business cards, and just as business cards, e-mail signatures come in different shapes and forms.
E-signatures are easy for anyone to use; all it takes is some initial setup to customize one. It’s often recommended that signatures should not exceed five lines, in order to appear cleaner and more appealing. Stick with the bare essentials like one would do for a business card; a writer need not overdo it and overwhelm recipients with too much information, let alone add fancy fonts and bright colors.
Many users, however, agree that e-signatures have become a valuable business tool to promote themselves professionally. But instead of just adding a simple digital signature to emails, BrandMyMail, a Web site application and service, gives an e-mail signature a social-media makeover.
BrandMyMail allows the inclusion of any type of social information users want in their signature, offering a way to embed plug-ins from many social media sources. It also allows pictures and icons.
So what are the benefits of this new type of e-mail signature? Signatures from BrandMyMail put a stylish ID at the end of emails. They allow users to add dynamic content and use templates within their email messages. It allows the embedding of corporate social and marketing messages. It accepts feeds from Twitter (News - Alert) or Facebook, picture mosaics from Flickr and videos from YouTube. Ultimately, it adds value to a simple email.
Many email clients, especially Gmail users, have found the BrandMyMail easy to use when creating a custom signature. To get started and begin to make the most of the BrandMyMail service, users either configure the SMTP client on the computer or install the BrandMyMail extension (currently available for Firefox or Chrome).
Users visit www.BrandMyMail.com for more information about the service, which has premium costs of about $4 per month. Individuals can, however, try it free for 14 days, as mentioned on PCWorld.
BrandMyMail works with any email client or system, including Android (News - Alert), iPhone, Apple Mail, Outlook or a Gmail Web interface.
