Are you writing emails?
Do you often get stuck while figuring out how to write the perfect email?
We get you. Leaving an impressional with your emails is tough. Doing it at the end of your emails is even harder.
That is why you need to pay attention to how you sign off your emails. Let’s see how you can create a professional email signature and why is it important:

If you are not paying much heed to your email signature, you are not making the most of this opportunity.
A professional email signature is attention getting. It is neither flashy nor blend.

No worries, Alexis Madrigal from The Atlantic has compiled some interesting popular ways to personalise the signature:

Apology/Location/Status [Communication] from [My] [Device]
If at all, you are using HTML for your signature, make sure that you don’t overuse it. A good text to HTML ratio is anywhere from 25 to 70 percent. In order to write a clean HTML for your professional email signature:
There you are! All set to sign off your emails with a classic professional email signature.
