Optimizing Email Signatures for Mobile Devices

Mobile devices have now become the most popular device to read emails on. According to a recent study by Litmus, an average of 56% of emails are now opened on a smartphone or tablet. With an increasing number of people reading and sending emails on mobile devices, making sure you have a corporate mobile email signature should be a top priority for your organization.

 

How can you ensure your email signature is optimized for mobile devices?

 

When designing a mobile email signature, you must take into consideration the width of a mobile screen. It’s best to separate your contact details onto multiple lines, as doing so will ensure all of the text fits on the screen and your recipient won’t have to scroll to read the whole signature.

Make sure the images you use, such as logos or banners, are the correct size you want them to display. If you use an image that is originally 500×500 pixels but you’ve formatted it to appear as 100×100 pixels, the mobile mail client may alter the format and display the image in its original size.
