According to research, the average email user sends 40 emails per day.
While it's certainly arguable that we should all switch off our email and talk more, there's really no argument against one simple, practical step that will help promote your website: create an email signature with a website link in it.
Mostly, the emails we send are to people we already have some kind of relationship with. So it's really a no-brainer that you'd want them to have the opportunity to visit your website with just a single click, right?
Just consider, for less than 5 minutes' up-front investment of your time, you'll be doing 'soft' email marketing of your website, all day, with zero extra effort.
You'd be surprised how many website owners fail to do this. Don't be one of them.
Make your signature simple and personal. All you really need is your name and a link to your Simpl website. Maybe a friendly comment too. Job done.
Got more than one email account? Remember to set signatures for all of them. And finally, make sure you set signatures on all of your devices (Mac/PC, iPad and iPhone).
