Create and Use a Sig File

Create and use a signature file, commonly called a sig file, in all your email. Many people will click on the link in your sig file just to see who you are and what you're all about. Who knows where that may lead?

To create your own sig file, Write a snazzy little blurb about your business - about 6-7 lines - and include it in every email message you send... even forwards and replies.

Here's mine:

Bishop's Corner
Nearly 1,000 Items $19.95 or Less!

Outlook and Outlook Express will manage this for you automatically.

In Outlook, go to Tools, Options, Mail Format, Signature Picker, New and insert your information.

In Outlook Express, go to Tools, Options, Signatures, New and insert your information.

You may find it easier to create your sig file in a text editor and then just paste it into the email program. But whatever you do, create a simple file, include your URL, and start today to use it in every email message you send.

For pastors, Christian business owners and others, a sig file can add a tremendous amount of traffic and exposure to your website. Worth the time and effort, don't you think?
