Is your blog signature in compliance with your state rules?

 

I have noticed some ActiveRain blogs with no signature and many with very little information in the signature. And, some members are not taking advantage of the available automatic signature.

It may be a good time to take a close look at your blog signature to determine if it complies with your state real estate commission regulations for marketing materials. This issue is further complicated since some real estate professionals do business in multiple states. 

Some states require the disclosure of the type of license that is held and some require disclosure of the license number. You may have the requirement to include your office address and the phone number for your broker in addition to your personal contact information. Take a close look to make sure you are in compliance.

Roy Kelley Great post to remind agents that their signature blocks (everywhere) must be in compliance with their state's licensing.

The blog signature is the contact information at the bottom of your blog post. Most of us use the automatic blog signature feature.

Roy, thanks for sharing. I definitely need to revisit the rules and may signature. I hadn't given much thought to it so I appreciate you highlighting the idea.

I believe I am, Roy, but it never hurts to check. There have been some changes recently in our Board and the state for marketing requirements.
