Every wedding company has an email signature for their company, or should have one. However, does your company have an email signature that will drive fans to your website, and fan pages in an effective way?

There is way more about email signatures than just using the basic signatures connected with your email program.

    I have experienced not seeing images contained in emails depending on who they’re from or on what computer I’m reading them? Makes me shy away from sending out emails with images. I want to avoid a client seeing little “?s” on the emails I send. Is this a valid concern?

      We’ve been using a photo in our email signature for a couple years with only positive results. It makes us more friendly and personable, and we get a very positive response.

      However, it’s worth testing out. If you have an email service that does split testing, you could send two identical emails and use a signature in one and no signature in the other. Which gets a better click through rate?

      That would be an interesting experiment!

      I don’t worry to much about those “?’s” but it’s something to consider.

    I would be very careful to make sure this works in every major mail client and web based email before relying on it to achieve everything. At least 6-7 times a day if Gmail didn’t break a fancy email signature my Blackberry or iPhone would. It’s a great idea but unfortunately the less savvy users among us, who allow viruses to infect their computers by clicking on every email with an attachment, have forced email providers to institute practices to protect us from ourselves. These practices have rendered email unreliable for delivering anything but text.

      Excellent point. Thanks for passing that on, Chris.

      I’ve been including an image in our email signature for quite a while and haven’t run into any issues. I’m sure it gets blocked, but it doesn’t seem to stop people from opening the email.

      For us, the benefit of having an image in our email signature (increased personalization and connection) far outweighs the inconvenience. But it’s definitely something to consider and test.
