Make it easy to read your phone number
I know that this may sound trivial and nit-picking, but often it is attention to the small details that make the difference.
In a previous post, I have written about the significance of your email signature and how to use it.
So here is a refinement on that . . .
Many people still do not use an email signature on their emails.
It is a great way to present your business consistently and accurately, and in a way that is very easy for you, (most important!), once it is set up.
But many people still do this manually . . . sometimes with just their name, sometimes with a greeting and/or a phone number added.
If you are expecting people to contact you back, then a phone number is the bare minimum.
Which brings me to the point of this short post.
Format your phone number
In the spirit of making things easier for your friends and customers, please format your phone number in your signature file.
Typing your phone number as 0412144533 makes it much harder to read.
Typing your phone number as 0412 144 533 or 0412-144-533 is much easier for people to read while they are entering your number in their phone.
That’s because it is easy for people to remember a 3 or 4 digit number between looking at their phone keypad.
But trying to remember a 10 digit number is not a straight forward task for most people.
In fact, almost impossible in the few seconds it takes to make a phone call.
Same goes for landline numbers
Format them as 07 5211 9753 or 07-5211-9753 but not as 0752119753.
It is a simple habit to get into.
And if you set this up in your signature file, you do not even need to make it a habit.
Well, that is quite simple really!
