What are the benefits of Yahoo signatures? 🤔

Don't underestimate your Yahoo signature. Because with one, you can: 

Professionalise your emails 👩‍⚖️ 

Whatever industry you’re in, it’s important to show you’re professional. 

And an email signature can help you do just that. It’s a great opportunity to present your contact information in a business card-like format.

Especially when workers receive 121 business-related emails every day, a customised Yahoo signature can also help you stand out from the crowd.  

Personalise your emails 👤

A lot of emails sound automated and impersonal. 

But with a professional email signature that includes a headshot, you can humanise your messages, and build more meaningful relationships with prospects and customers.

Level up your emails 💯

By making your Yahoo emails clickable, informative, and interactive for the recipient, you have a better chance of continuing their customer journey outside email chains.

Yahoo signature dos 👍 and don'ts 👎

So far, you know why to have an email signature and how to add your Yahoo email signature. 

Before you go any further, read our advice so you can make the most out of your Yahoo email signature. 👇

Do ✅

Include basic information 📞

If you don’t make it easy for the recipient to access basic information, your email signature will be pointless. So before creating anything else, remember to include:

Basic information your Yahoo mail signature should have

Include calls-to-action ⏭️

Social media icons in Yahoo mail signatures

Calls-to-action (CTAs) will help take your Yahoo email signature to the next level. Clickable buttons, icons, and banners all help recipients take the next step in their customer journey. 

Whether you’re promoting some new products or a new blog post, CTAs can help you drive valuable traffic and conversation to the relevant sites. 

Include high-quality images 📷 

Having images and pictures to promote yourself is all well and good. 

But if they’re poor quality, your email could appear spammy, decreasing the recipient’s trust in you. 

When it comes to taking a professional photograph, remember: good lighting and a good quality camera

Don't ❌

Go overboard with design ✏️

Don’t get bogged down in the design of your email signature. Think simple, clean, and in line with your personal or company branding. 

Here are some pointers:

  • Stick to one colour palette - the easiest way to do this is to use company colours.
  • Stick to one font and make sure it’s legible. 
  • Stick to two images and/or CTAs max, so your email signature doesn’t look cluttered.

Use informal phrases 💬

Be warned that if you don’t use proper ways to sign off, your email signature won’t leave the impression that you want. 

Don’t round off an email with “See you later” or “Cheers”. 

Instead, opt for the following phrases:
