Whenever I get an email from someone I haven’t corresponded with before, I like to look at his email signature.
I’m always curious which information people include, and I like to compare their signatures against mine. Is there a social media profile I should add? Should I stop sharing my cell phone number?
An infographic from Ever Contact (formerly WriteThat.name) reveals what a typical email signature looks like. A few interesting facts:
- Only 52 percent of professionals have an email signature.
- Sixty percent of professionals with an email signature list their landline number. Only 28 percent include their cell phone number.
- Twitter is the most commonly included social network.
- One in 20 people include an image.
How does your signature compare?
