Your Email Signature = Your Business Card
Because we do so much online, our email signatures have "become" our online business cards. Samples below.
There’s no need to “tag” your email address as “email” or your phone number as “phone” or “mobile” because today people assume that. Use only one phone number, your mobile so that all calls and messages are funneled to you in real time and thus you can respond faster. You also don’t need the “www” in your LinkedIn URL; again, that’s assumed today. You may still want to tag your other social media contact info if that platform not as well-known.
Some of the samples below have a tagline, that line of marketing-speak that is under their name. While it’s not required, it does give you stronger focus when compared to other candidates.
Important: When using InMail on LinkedIn, copy your email signature in at the end of the message. LinkedIn won't do this for you, you have to do it. It's very professional to do so, plus now the other person has your contact info.
