I prefer the "KISS" principle for signatures.  Less things to load, less headache for you and the viewer.

I guess I need to look at mine.  I remember a long time ago Brad Andersohn wrote a post that included buttons.  Maybe he could find it.

Oh John- I'm laughing because it's been ages since I altered my signature. I'll have to go back and look because I do have a signature in my post but can't remember how I did it.  I hopped over to Craig Daniels old posts to see if he might have written a post about it.

I go in and edit mine from time to time, but don't really think it makes a huge difference in my active rain account, as my calls to action are all in the links in my posts and I suspect people will go there first.

As for my email... I have used professionally designed stationery for signature and new emails for almost 20 years to brand.

 John, you have a basic understanding of HTML, right?  Just get some logos, graphics, etc. that are pertinent to the mortgage loan industry and sprinkle them under your signature.

I'd watch a few utube videos on creating all kinds of signatures if you want to do it yourself. I use canva now for most staff. 

p.s. yes, I need a AR refresher too, but it can wait.
