Do You Use an Email Signature?
It's been fun learning more about the group and its interactions. One thing that helped is an email signature. Granted, not everyone has this handy promo tool on their email, but most do.
Except I don't.
Why? It's a tough call. I teach three classes for a local high school. I freelance full time. I have a weekly newspaper column that's carried in multiple publications.
I don't want an email signature that stretches from my spot in the Nebraska countryside all the way to California.
What should be included? Name, address, phone number? Website? Twitter ID? All three job items I listed above?
I don't feel I can leave off the teaching career; it's tied to my writing (I teach Journalism and Speech). Yet, most of my life is spent writing.
Typically, I type a "signature" that fits the person I'm emailing. It may take a bit of extra time, but I think it's worth it. That way, people don't have to wade through a long email signature.
Is it enough? Am I missing out on personal promotion by NOT using an email signature? Perhaps I'll just add my website, for now.
