Naked Email Signatures

There are lots of things that should not be naked in public

Never run around in public naked
Never be caught naked in public

Many times each day I get an email from a business associate or from someone looking for a job and the email signature looks something like this:

“Thanks
Jenny”

This a Naked Email Signature and you should never let this happen.

What happens if I want to call Jenny? I need to go looking for her phone number

What if I want to introduce Jenny to someone else? I do not have all of her contact information to share

How am I going to look her up in the Social Media streams? If she exists there, I now have to go find her profile

Many times I like to update my contact database with the people I am starting to do business with. Now I need to go find her mailing address, etc.

I strongly suggest that you never send an email out with a Naked Email Signature.

I’m a little unusual, my email signature is fully populated. It looks like this currently:

Thanks

Teddy

Make today a great day and share it with someone.

I don’t publish an office address because I work on the road
But I have all of my “digits” listed so that anyone who likes can find me just about anywhere.

Most people don’t need this detailed of an Email Signature.

But please, don’t send out an email with a Naked Email Signature.
