For a professional outcome you need to ensure clean and responsive design as well as adding basic features to your Yahoo signature. 

Clean design means that you’ll need a basic information hierarchy with the more important things in bigger and bolder letters plus some kind of division between your signature’s different sections. Namely, your personal info, your contact info and your call to action.

The basic features that make a great Yahoo Mail signature are things that will add depth and trust. These come in the form of visual elements and links.

Feature that make a professional Yahoo signature:

  • An image of you
  • Social media icons (with links)
  • A call to action (this can be a banner, a video, a button or some text and link)
