Read this great guide by Amy from Mailerlite to find out the best practices for best results.

tldr? Here is the checklist: 

Your guide to email signature best practices for 2022

Size: Keep an eye on the dimensions and weight of your email signature. Less than 100kb and between 150px-200px height, 300px-600px width

Fonts and colors: Be consistent with your brand guidelines and keep things simple

Photos: Use clean, high-quality headshots and don’t forget to smile! Stick to 50px-100px in size

Company logo: Use a high-quality logo with a width of 150px-300px. Place it alongside your other company information

Social media links: Use icons instead of text links and stick to relevant platforms that you are active on. These work well at the bottom of your footer

CTA: Use CTAs in line with your brand to reach goals or drive subscribers to other channels

Website link: Make it easy to identify 

Dividers: Separate information into groups to make it more digestible

Whitespace: Use enough whitespace to make your email signature clean, professional and easy to read

Design hierarchy: Make sure primary information is prominent, and present elements so as to guide readers through with purpose

Mobile-friendly: Think about size, positioning and whitespace of clickable elements

Track success: Make links trackable to analyze and make informed decisions about your campaigns

Use different signatures where appropriate: What works for one kind of client, might not work for another.
