Ensuring that your website has a constant amount of activity is one of the most important aspects of maintaining a successful website. Increasing website activity is one of the easiest ways to make your site more popular and help your business if it runs on your site. By using specific tools, such as email signatures, you can passively increase your website activity without any additional effort.
Even if you have been using email for years, you may not know that you can add signatures to your emails. Email signatures consist of a few lines of text that are automatically added to the end of each email sent. You can usually create these signatures using a “preferences” tab in your most frequently used email program. After you create an email signature, every time you send an email, your email program will automatically add what you have saved as a signature to the end of the email, without you having to do anything.
Before you can enjoy increased website activity through email signatures, you will need to create a proper signature. To do this, you must consider two things. First, consider how much space your email program allows for your signature. This will be important as the content may need to be condensed to fit the program being used. Second, and most importantly, you need to think about what you mean by your signature. If you have a business, it is probably best to use your name, business name, address, phone number, and website address. This is a very professional and passive way to promote your website. If you have a more casual website, you can include your name, the website link, and a nice quote or two that you find inspiring, funny, or relevant to your website. Think about the overall feel of your website and try to keep your signature in the same writing tone.
There are some “rules” in creating an email signature to aid the activity of the website. The first rule is to keep your signature limited to four lines or less. If you create long signatures, the reader is likely to be completely disconnected and not remember anything in your signature. There is also the possibility that they will not even read it because it “seems too long”. This can happen frequently. Keep in mind that most people use email because it is quick and easy to use. So they will not be asked to read long email areas because they will feel like they are taking too long. Another rule of thumb is to make sure your email signature is suitable for all ages, genders, and ethnicities. The last thing you want to do is offend someone with your signature because that won’t attract website activity, but it will deter them.
Once you have successfully created your signature, be sure to save it in your email program so that it is added every time you email someone. You may need to “check” a specific box in the “preferences” to get to this point. You can verify that it works correctly by sending yourself an email. Your signature should look exactly how others will see it in the email. After everything is working properly, all you need to do is send emails as usual. The more emails you send, the more often the link to your website will appear. When you send forwarded emails from the recipient, your signature will appear even longer than expected. The email chain is complicated with a large number of viewers, so you are likely to get unwanted viewers, which is great for your website. The more the link is displayed, the more traffic it will have on your website.
