Do you work in a professional setting? Then you probably already know how to set an email signature for all outgoing emails. Email signatures are great for giving your emails a professional look, increasing brand awareness, and improving response rates. 

But what about when you text message your clients or prospects? 

Just like when you send emails, business texting requires you to follow certain etiquette. This etiquette ranges from limiting texting to work hours and remaining professional. It also involves signing off your text messages with a signature. 

While we all send the occasional abbreviation-filled, emoji-studded message to a friend, the rules of texting clients, colleagues and prospects are different. 

To help you get started, we’ll walk you through how you can add a signature to outgoing text.

Firstly, Why Use a Dedicated Business Texting Platform?

Text message signatures allow you to share your contact details or share useful business information, such as opening times. It’s not the only reason to use a business text messaging service. 

SimpleTexting allows you and your team to scale up your text messaging channel. You can:

  • Text large groups of clients, leads, employees, or any other group of contact
  • Add SMS functionality to your website with our click-to-text button generator
  • Write texts and schedule them to send later
  • Use or iOS or Android mobile app to manage your texts on the go
  • Send files, from photos to PDFs
  • Import data from your CRM in a matter of minutes
  • Organize contacts into separate lists for customers, leads, employees, or other groups of contacts

Our business texting platform lets you keep a log of all conversations, prioritize incoming messages, make notes, and set up templates so that you never have to rewrite the same message twice. In this short video, we cover the basics of how it works:

Text Message Signature Examples

There are a ton of creative ways you can place important business or contact info in your text message signatures. Here are some excellent text message signature examples:

1. Include Opening Hours

For service businesses or brick-and-mortar retailers, it can be a good idea to add in your business’s opening hours.

2. Provide More Contact Details

You can add another communication channel into your text message signature in case someone wants to reach out by email or give you a call instead. (If you text-enable your existing numbers with SimpleTexting, you can use one number for SMS and calls.)

3. Reinforce Your Brand’s Message

You can even use your text message signature to reinforce your brand’s message and reinforce why doing business with you is a good idea.
