they should still be expected to operate with correct standards. Often, this means getting the small
things right, especially when putting yourself out there as a visible brand.

signature that grants uniformity, and develops comprehensive professionalism, you can send even
quick messages with professionalism and clarity. It will also allow you to speak as if you were a
long-standing business with a code of communication ethics. That in itself can raise your humble outfit
to an initiative that always adopts the best practices no matter what. 

Additionally, this is a great place to remind your correspondence of your contact information, a banner
of your logo and branding, and your position within your own company. It’s the little things that count.
