1. Let your virtual business card carry the bulk of your essential information
According to Mailtrack, the best email signatures are often clean and concise.
Remember, overcrowding your signature block with excessive details can clutter its design. So, place the bulk of essential information you need to share on your digital business card. These include URLs, social icons, a Google Maps location, and other relevant details.
This way, you keep your signature block clean while sharing essential details with your recipients.
2. Ensure your e-business card exudes your unique branding details
Adhering to your branding guidelines is always a good practice, whether it’s for your email signature or the digital business card it links to.
In addition to branding your email signature, add your company’s distinct visual elements to your e-business card to promote brand recognition. These include its logo, colors, and typography.
3. Place a call to action prompting recipients to view your card
Add a suitable call-to-action in your email signature to prompt your recipient to view your card. This CTA could be as simple as a “Get To Know Me” or “Scan To Connect” next to your signature block’s QR Code.
