10 Examples of Well-Crafted Email Signatures for Businesses

One of the most overlooked places to market your company is via your email signature.

I’ll be the first to admit, I did not have anything special in my email signature – outside of the normal stuff that you see  such as:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Website

It wasn’t until a few weeks or so ago when I received an email message from a fellow small business owner and blogger that a light bulb went off.  His email signature was one of the first things that jumped out at me. 

It included all of the basics – yet it had one key ingredient that my email signature did not – a very clear “Call-to-Action”.

Now..before hand, I was trying to figure out how to use Canva and other graphic design tools to add some spark to my email signature.


After seeing his call to action in his email signature, I immediately started drafted up a new one using Wisestamp a very effective email signature branding tool that allowed me to add my picture, a call to action beneath all of my contact information — and links back to my Twitter and Facebook pages.

With Wisestamp my signature went from looking like this:

Amazingly, this is the 2nd time I’ve heard of harnessing the power of the email signature as a marketing tool, in the last two days alone. I guess it’s a thing, eh?

Great post, thanks for sharing. Here is a link to the first article I read on it – apparently companies are using it as a marketing channel.



I am having a tough time using icons for Facebook, Twitter, etc… it turns to HTML when sent or replied. I am using the MAC version of Outlook.

Any thoughts or experiences with this?

Hey there Jonathan,

Sorry this response is late. Please check out this article when you get a chance. I have a pc so I am not well versed in Outlook for MAC. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2455171
