Time for a Refresher - A Signature Refresher

Just when you think you’re all caught up, just in time for spring market, someone reels you right back in to tweak something! I remember saying a dozen years ago that I never thought I would be building a website, learning code and worrying about creating pages and posts for the world to see - much less, keep up with it all.  

 

This time, we had a fantastic ZOOM call with our own Craig Daniels who shared a fabulous new signature he had created for Kat Palmiotti - it was gorgeous (still is, of course)! He used two blog sites to compare - one had too little information, the other, too much. I’ll let you guess whose site he used to demonstrate too much in a signature! 

 

Back to, “Just when you think you’re all caught up…” Well, over the past 15 years (yes, I joined in 2007 - who knew it had been 15 years?!), we’ve learned more and more about our signatures. We’ve learned how to tag pictures in our signatures, how to ‘organize’ them, what to include, adding brand new social media platforms (like Facebook!), what credentials to add/change, what to add again…then during COVID and tweaking team photos so half of our clientele doesn’t see us in a huddle (as a team) without our masks on!  It became the long & winding road instead of a signature!

 

Well, that should explain all of the STUFF in my previous signature! Here is the ‘before’ signature:

 

Old AR Signature

 

As it happens, Craig created a new signature for me for his presentation. I have made some modifications - a couple of them but, it’s now done! Of course I tweaked it; it’s in my very nature to tweak - I ’tweak’ everything! LOL So, now, while I know my signature should be simple, classy and easy on the eye, it seems bare to me!  I KNOW it has all of the information that fellow agents & consumers needs to reach me. I am getting used to it and do love that I don’t have to scroll & scroll & scroll some more to get past my signature any longer!

Here is my new one:

New Signature

 

And, I apologize to anyone who has commented on my posts the last few years, for making you scroll SO much to get past my LONG signature to get to the comments section!

 

A HUGE thank you to Craig Daniels & Eileen Burns for hosting this month’s challenge! You are truly appreciated!

Nice job, lady! I have seen some here where you scroll longer than the post! This is a beautiful improvement. Isn't Craig the bomb for being so helpful?

It's never too late, Endre Barath, Jr.! I'm hopeful Ben is going to open up this place for new members soon and I wanted mine to look a little cleaner than it was looking! It was cleansing to start all over!

Thank you, Brian England! I was loving the start of yours and can't wait to see the finished product. I love that you're going for original!

As for tomorrow - O M G - what a game this first one is going to be. Monday will be easy-peasy after this one, I believe! Our rivalry doesn't take into consideration the level of skill or ranking - the Duke/UNC games are always the hardest fought of the season. I feel bad for the Carolina fans - their team is going to have to go home after Duke gets through with them tomorrow!!!

It really doesn't, Michael Jacobs - but, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Enjoy your weekend...

I tweak everything too. Just can't leave well enough alone 😇 However, there is nothing bare about your signature, you've got all the pertinent information, and I think it's about PERFECT. Nice job!

Hey there, Mimi Foster! I've missed seeing you! You have been on my mind lately and I should have phoned you. I hope you're doing well. Sending big hugs your way!

And, thank you - yes, I'm loving my new, non-scroll signature and have Craig to thank for it!!

LOL - I'm sure everyone does, Mimi!


And, yes, he is!

Debe, I had no idea the platform was closed to new people.... I have seen so many new faces  on the blog roll and let's not forget all the new spammers... so how  do they get here? Endre

They can add themselves - it's not really 'closed' but, we were asked not to invite new members to the platform until the back-end is up and running, Endre Barath, Jr. Ben will be speaking with us later this month so, I'm hopeful we can begin inviting new members soon!
