How do you add a signature in Gmail? A question that is asked by many. And the solution is simple. Including a signature at the end of your messages is a surefire way of conveying professionalism. Unfortunately, Gmail is lacking a ready-made solution for adding a signature. But no worries! There is an easy way to get this done.

With that in mind, let me introduce you to the Signatures features by Mailbutler. After downloading and installing the Chrome extension, you can start creating your Gmail signature right away. 

Create a Gmail Signature

First, you need to go to the Chrome Store and download Mailbutler. The next step is to install the extension on your computer. After this is done, the Mailbutler icon should appear in the right corner of your window. Now, to actually use the Signatures feature, there are two possible ways by which you can do this:

  1. You can use Mailbutler’s signature templates or
  2. You can create a signature from scratch

If you decide to use the templates, first you need to open Mailbutler Dashboard and select Signatures. The Add Signatures button allows you to choose between 10 different signature templates that can be edited at any time.

But wait! Don’t be so quick designing and deciding on a final signature. Before you do that, read on these short tips on how to customize a successful email signature, one to create a long-lasting impression.

  • Don’t include too much information. Three or four lines of text including your name, title, company, and phone number is more than enough.
  • Add a picture. Visuals count a lot and have a much stronger impact than just plain text.
  • Additional, you can add social media channels to connect more easily with potential customers or clients.

Now, if you decide to build your signature from scratch, you can do that by clicking on Signature Templates. The New Template button allows you to customize your Gmail signature in whatever way you want to. Including your company’s logo colors, adding a quote, inserting a link or a placeholder, all these can be easily done when customizing your signature from the ground up.  Moreover, you can share and sync these newly created signature templates with members of your team.

Every new signature you create is saved in the Signatures section, where you can preview it. You can edit and delete each signature, regardless if it’s a template or those created from the ground up. As for adding new signatures, there is no limit on how many you can customize.

That’s it! Now you have a professional looking Gmail signature that you can attach at the end of your emails.
