Gmail is one of the world’s most popular email clients with more than 1 billion active users. If you are among them, it’s time to make the most of your email account by adding a signature in Gmail. Email signatures are proven to boost conversions, email engagement, reply rates and social media engagement.

This time – we’ll focus on adding a signature in Gmail.

If you’re a Gmail user, you can set up your email signature in a matter of minutes! This simple task is well worth your time. There are two routes you can go:

-Create your signature in your Gmail settings

Or

-Use an email signature generator

Let’s walk through both so you can have your Gmail signature up and running in no time!

 

How to add an email signature in Gmail using your Gmail settings:

 1.  Log into your Gmail account. (Note: If you have several Gmail accounts, choose the one that you want to add the signature to. The signature will appear in the account you use to set it up; it will not appear in any other Gmail account you may have).

2.  Go to the “Settings” gear at the top right of your Gmail account. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings”

4.  Scroll down to the “Signature” section and enter the details you would like to include in your signature.

  • We recommend adding your name, title, name of the business, email, phone and social media links
  • You can hyperlink text (like your email and social media links) by using the formatting bar
  • We also recommend adding an image to your signature. Signatures with an image get more than 20% higher engagement than those without. Use the “Image” icon to insert your image (a headshot, product shot or company logo).

That’s it! Now, every time you compose a new email, Gmail will automatically insert the signature you created into your message. If you want to edit or remove it, you can do so manually before you hit “Send” on your message.
