How-to Update Your Gmail Signature in 5 Easy Steps
The email signature is an important reflection of you as an individual or of company you represent. In fact, it’s estimated that employees send about 10,000 1:1 business emails annually. For a company of 100 employees, that’s 1M emails every single year! That’s a lot of branding opportunities to showcase your brand and even include a resource call-to-action. But how do you do it?
We break it down into an easy step-by-step guide to not only update your Gmail signature, but to utilize the real estate at the bottom of every single email sent to showcase your brand and to generate interest in your company’s most important initiatives. Follow the 4 easy steps below:
Step 1: Open Your Gmail Account to the Inbox Screen
Log-in to your Gmail Account and open to the Inbox Screen (home screen)
Step 2: Navigate to the “Settings” Screen & Scroll to Bottom
