An e-mail signature is text that is automatically inserted at the bottom of your e-mails, such as "Sincerely, Martha Brown." You can add your website link to your e-mail signature to advertise your site to your correspondents. If your website is associated with your career, putting a link in your e-mail signature can help you look more professional.
