Why Put Twitter in Your Email Signature?
The holy grail of social media is cross pollenation of your social media efforts meaning bringing your facebook friends to your twitter presence, bringing your college buddies to your linked-in profile, bringing your church friends to your facebook, etc. Growing your network is crucial to social networking efforts and I don’t mean gaming the system, I mean making genuine connections with people in your market.
Adding your latest twitter message update (aka “tweet”) to your email signature is not only a great conversation starter (“what is that?”) and/or is a way for people outside of your social media spheres to get to know you and possibly get them interested in joining you there!
So here are four ways to get ‘er done:
The process is the same for all of these options- you enter your twitter name (none require your password) and it generates multiple options for color choices or design and gives you the code to copying and pasting into your email signature (or on your blog if you’re so inclined to fit it there). All four options below function the same way, so pick which one you think is pretty and run with it! Note: if your twitter account is private like mine, this service will not work.
