    Because small things can make a big difference

    I believe, that every self-respecting blogger, business owner or creative should have an email signature to their emails. I hate to google all the information about people who want to work with me all across the internet and if you decide to work together, you have to ask for the phone and other information. If you have an email signature you will save time for the people you want to work with, since your contact information is easily accessible and you can add your website, social media and other things to email signature and look more serious and aware of your relationship with a client.
    So, since I use Gmail for everything (yes, I’ve even added my other emails to gmail), I will tell you how to set up an email signature to your Gmail account. And I think if you use some other email engine, you can do the same. I don’t want to recommend you to use some paid services, because doing it in your Gmail is easy enough.
    How to set up your email signature in Gmail:
    • Go to your gmail account.
    • Press on settings (that wheel icon on the top right of your screen).
    • Go to settings.
    • Scroll down until you see email signature section.
    • Now fill it up.
    What I recommend to include in your email signature:
    1. Photo of yourself or a logo of your business (when you add a photo, you can make it a link to a page too);
    2. Your full name;
    3. Your phone number;
    4. Your email (so people can easily copy and paste to their friends your contacts, including email);
    5. Your webpage;
    6. Your social media icons with links (you add your social media icons and make them links to actual pages).
    And this is how my email signature looks like:

    That took me about 10 minutes, and I feel so much more confident. Such a small thing can make a big difference in communication with your clients, and I believe in the power of small steps to reach your dream goal.
