Email Signature Software: Niche Tool or Marketing Staple?

“Email is dead” said the people who sends an average of 306 billion emails every day – over 2.4 billion every second.

Of the global daily deluge of emails, around 125 billion are business-related and over 110 billion are consumer-centric.  

The average office worker receives over 120 emails, and sends more than 40, every single day. 

Oh no, email is far from dead. In fact, with the rise of email signature software, allowing businesses to execute marketing campaigns via their email signatures, email is only just getting started! 

In this article we unpack the concepts of email signature software and email signature marketing, look at the benefits of using email signature software, and share the specific industries that could benefit most from using email signature management technology. 

What is email signature software? 

Email signature management software is a tool designed to streamline the creation, deployment, and management of email signatures across an organisation.  

It offers a centralised solution for standardising and controlling email signatures to ensure consistency in branding, messaging, and contact information across all outgoing emails. 

By using email signature management software, organisations can maintain a professional and consistent brand image in their email communications, ensure compliance with legal requirements, and efficiently manage signatures across many users.  

This type of software is particularly valuable for businesses looking to create a new marketing channel, streamline their email signature processes and maintain a cohesive and professional appearance in all outgoing emails.
