Do you use Gmail? Or perhaps Gmail for your business email (known as Google Apps / G Suite / Google Workplace)? In running Google Ads campaigns all day every day, we do A LOT of email. We’ve been using Google Workplace as our cloud email solution for 13 years now (all day every day), and we love it. Having said that, there are a few things that do annoy us. One of those things are the way that Gmail handles email signatures by default. It’s a silly little thing that we see people having a hard time with on an almost daily basis. The good news is that there’s a very easy fix!
Why Gmail’s default email signature placement setting annoys us:
- What’s the point of having a nice email signature with your business logo and/or contact details if it’s hidden way down the bottom of a long email thread where no one will see it?
How to fix Gmail’s default email signature placement:
- Sign into Gmail on your computer
- Click the settings cog at the top right hand corner of the screen then See All Settings
- Scroll about two-thirds down the settings page until you get to Signature
- Under Signature Defaults tick the checkbox for Insert signature before the quoted text in replies, and remove the ‘–‘ line that precedes it.
- Be sure to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page
- All done! Problem solved! Now your email signature will not get lost at the bottom of your emails. Instead, it will be included directly beneath your current email message, AMAZING!
