Why have an interactive email signature?

If a lot of your first interactions are through email you will want something that will stand out and be more professional than just a text signature.

Your emails will be taken more seriously when it's respectfully and genuinely represented by your brand.
Benefits of a well designed signature:
  • Easy to contact on all platforms
  • Lead the customer to where you want them instead of them looking you up
  • Credibility
  • Provides authority and context
