There’s numerous cons when making use of traditional HTML signatures. We chose a few important points to showcase the value of Clikit signatures vs traditional HTML signatures.
1. The HTML capabilities of email clients are generally very limited. The file size (weight) will be very large if you want to ensure that the images aren’t pixelated – possibly triggering spam filters and affecting bandwidth usage. Decreasing the image file size may result in the images appearing pixelated.
2. Stacking of traditional HTML signature in an email chain will add considerable weight as each message in the chain includes and adds the full weight of the signature. Clikit Signatures strips out images in previous messages whilst adding the full signature on the last email in the chain. This ensures decreased weight, ease of navigation and reduced cost when printing an email.
3. Different email clients render HTML in different ways and as such the consistency of the appearance might be affected in various ways, resulting in your emails appearing unprofessional.
4. A traditional HTML signature has no intelligent reporting & alert mechanism whereas Clikit Signatures can give you this information at the press of a button.
5. Clikit Signatures has central management control for all staff emails whereas HTML signatures are a manual process.
6. Clikit Signatures also have a few great features which can take your email signature from average to a powerhouse marketing tool.
After having read the above features and capabilities of Clikit Signatures, move forward and convert your business email into an interactive digital media and sales channel by making use of Clikit Signatures instead of traditional manual signatures.
