Adding a Call to Action to Your Email Signature

As a solopreneur, I send a lot of emails. I am in 100% control of my emails, but I send more emails than ever before. There are several reasons why, but the two main reasons why I keep focusing on email as my preferred communication, is that it’s fast and I archive everything. This way I can go back into my archive and see all the communication.

Most times, when I’m writing an email, I want to be as brief as possible, that’s why I have considered adding the sent from my iPhone signature to all my email. I won’t do it, because that’s being dishonest, but I have thought about it. If I added it, the recipient would understand why the email was short, and why it had a few spelling mistakes.

A few months ago, I was using Wisestamp to add an email signature for my business. It included my logo (and sometimes my picture), my contact information, and I have been testing it with some links to some of my social profiles. But, I ended up removing it, because I am testing one call to action.

I want people to read my blog posts, and start subscribing to my newsletter. I have considered adding a link to my newsletter in my emails, but instead, I am now adding a link to my latest blog post. And, I have added it above my logo and contact information. This way, it will be easier to see, and I believe more people will actually click on the link and read the post.

This is how it currently looks:

How’s your email signature? Do you have a call to action in it?

    I like the idea of adding a link to my latest blog post in my email signature. I just have my social media links on mine currently. Something to consider doing. :)

    Thanks for sharing this idea with us. Have a great day!

    Are you tracking the clicks to your blog from email using GA or a special bitly? Otherwise how do you plan on measuring success of this new scheme?

    I’m actually not tracking the clicks from my email signature, at least not yet. But, I’ll probably use goo.gl or something similar in the future.

    Thank you so much for the feedback Corina. I used to have links to my social media profiles too, now I’m testing this instead. I just need to add some tracking.

    I like your email signature – very professional looking. You don’t make it clear in your post whether you’re still using Wisestamp or some other app, but I’ll take a look and see if I can figure it out myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Looks great, Jens, but like Marquita, I’m confused about why you stopped using WiseStamp. I have my logo, and links to my latest blog post and to my social media accounts in my WiseStamp signature.

    Great idea. Using email signature is a great place to add extra info and contact information.

    This is a really good idea that is easy to implement. I also like the idea of using a link that one may track. I think I’ll add this to my to do list.

    I really liked the idea of linking the email signature with the links of the post. This is a nice way to make the blog read by a good number of individuals. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

    Thank you for sharing this great idea with us. Using these signatures at the end of the e-mail adds professionalism to them.

    Thank you for sharing your insights. I had a question, what tool/ platform do you use to link your latest blog post in your email signature?

    An excellent idea, certainly worth the experiment. Can I ask is the blog post taken from a feed (so it auto updates) or do you simply update it every time a post is rolled out?
