Have you ever wished you could give business cards to people you meet online?
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easy way to let people know how to connect with you WITHOUT spending a dime for an expensive marketing tool?
If you’re like me and most other smart business owners, then you have at least wished for this solution a couple of times in your business journey.
Today, I am excited to release a new FREE tool, WPBeginner’s Email Signature Generator, which helps you let people know who you are and how to reach out to you.
We built this tool because we want to make it easy and FREE for everyone to create a stunning email signature.
What is WPBeginner’s Email Signature Generator?
Our Email Signature Generator is a powerful FREE online tool that enables you to design aesthetically pleasing email signatures in a few minutes.
No need to hire a designer or use an expensive tool. If you can point and click with a mouse, you can design beautiful email signatures quickly and easily.
The best part is that our email signature builder generates an HTML signature, which is supported by every email client available in the market, including Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, Apple Mail, and more.
As opposed to image-only signatures, HTML signatures reduce the likelihood of your emails being flagged as spam by spam filters.
While a well-designed email signature can help make a good first impression, most people don’t use a signature at all because it’s not easy to design one.
This is why we decided to build the Email Signature tool at WPBeginner and make it free for all our readers.
Below are a few benefits of using an email signature for your emails.
Your digital business card: Email signatures have the same purpose as a business card. It shows you who you are and the brand you represent.Real person: It reassures your email recipients that they’re communicating with a human being rather than a bot.Brand awareness: It helps in brand awareness and enables you to show your contact details, website URL, social media profiles, and more.
How to Use WPBeginner’s Email Signature Generator
First of all, head over to WPBeginner’s Email Signature Generator page. To create a unique signature, choose a signature template you like the most.
Now you’ll be directed to our email signature builder, where you can add signature details like name, email address, phone number, website URL, and more. The builder even lets you change the signature template as you customize your signature details.
The signature builder comes with 4 options to tweak your signatures the way you want.
General: Add more info like your name, email address, company name, your position at the company, and the department you work at.Theme: This is where you pick a different template design if you change your mind.Addons: Add even more details, like social media profiles, and change the avatar and a logo URL. Styling: Make advanced changes like fonts and spacing, and make your signature unique.
Next, you’ll be prompted to sign up for the WPBeginner newsletter. And finally, you can copy the HTML signature embed code and paste it into your preferred email client.
Our Signature Generator Improves Deliverability
To improve email deliverability, our Email Signature Generator helps you build HTML email signatures.
Unlike image-only signatures, HTML signatures are not likely to be flagged by spam filters.
That’s because spam filters take text:image ratio into account to figure out whether an email is legitimate or spam.
Using only an image as your signature could potentially reduce the text:image ratio and increases the likelihood of your emails getting flagged by spam filters.
Customize Email Signature the Way You Want
Another benefit of creating HTML signatures is that it’s highly customizable. With our free tool, you can easily add as many or as few details as you want to your email signature.
For example, you can add important details like your first and last name, your business name, job title, and department.
If you want, you can add even more details such as:
Your recent photographYour company logoSocial media profile linksAnd so much more…
Set Up a Professional Email Address for FREE!
Alongside a stunning email signature, we highly recommend using a professional email address. A professional email address uses your company name instead of the generic name, like Gmail, Outlook, or Yahoo.
Here’s what a professional email address looks like: firstname.lastname@example.org. And here’s an example of a generic email address: email@example.com.
When a professional email address is used alongside a professional email signature, you can win trust when dealing with other businesses and customers.
On the other hand, since anyone can create generic email accounts, it becomes harder for customers and other businesses to trust generic email addresses as legitimate business email accounts.
Setting up a professional email address is free if you already have a website. If you don’t have a WordPress website yet, you can build one with Bluehost, which offers a free domain name, free business email address, and 60% OFF web hosting.
