ActiveRain Tutorials: ActiveRain Announces Automatic Signatures on Your Blog

ActiveRain Announces Automatic Signatures on Your Blog

Today is an exciting day for ActiveRain as we release a great new feature. As of today, you now have the ability to add a signature line to all of your blog posts automatically!  Many of our members have the same tagline or image that they like to use on each & every blog post.  With this new feature, you are able to create your own custom signature line that will automatically appear on every post you write.

How It Works

You will write your signature/tagline/footer once & save it.  Then whenever you post something new to your blog, it will appear at the bottom of that post.  You can place all of your about me information as well as any other buttons, icons, or custom signature pictures that you may use into this block.  It will save you lots of time. 

Before, to add your custom signature, you would have to copy & paste the signature from an old post into the new one.  And if you used something containing HTML, the process was even more laborious.  All of that work has been simplified into one easy step now.

How to Set Up Your Signature

Start by logging into your account.  Then, click on the Settings tab along the left side.  You will then scroll down to the signature box that will look similar to this:

Settings & Signature

Fill in the signature box with whatever information you wish to have shown in your signature.  Remember, whatever information you place in this box will be shown on ALL of your posts.  So take that into consideration when placing the information in this box.  You do not want to put something like "for more information on this listing, contact me" because all your blog posts are not listings.  This box allows you to insert HTML codes, images, & links along with your content, so be sure to take full advantage of these.

On the other hand, DO NOT ABUSE THE SIGNATURE! If you place too many graphics & videos & paragraphs upon paragraphs of information with links, you will slow down the loading speed of your blog.  Also, if your signature lines are 3 times the length of your posts, then consumers will be turned off.  They visit your blog for information & quality content.  If instead of finding bunches of content they only find small bits followed by giant signatures, they will lose interest in your blog & move onto someone else.

Once you have filled in the signature box with the information, be sure to click the update button below.  If not, your new signature masterpiece will not be saved & will not show up when you visit your blog to preview.

REMEMBER TO CLICK UPDATE

The Final Result?

After clicking update, visit your blog & see your new work of art.  I hope that our members are as excited about this new feature as I am!  Please do me a favor, after setting up your own custom signature, stop back by this post & leave a comment witha  link to yours so we can all view the new masterpieces.

Thanks a bunch for the continuing improvements. This will certainly simplify things for me.

Awesome! Thanks for the update.

Posted by Cindy Cranston (Fulmer Realty- Floresville, LaVernia, San Antonio) over 9 years ago

This new feature rocks.  I'm off to see if I can sucessfully follow instructions now.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) over 9 years ago

Awesome!  This will be a huge time saver.  Now how about the same thing for a header? 

Posted by Brian Brumpton, Boise Idaho Real Estate (Keller Williams Boise) over 9 years ago

Just noticed the autosignature does not carry over to ReBlogs!  

Still a great feature - thanks AR!

(BTW: nice bottlecaps, eh?) 

Posted by Mike Mueller (Tech and Social Media Consultant) over 9 years ago

Hurray ! This is an absolute time saver. This is a great addition

Posted by Claude Cross, Charlotte NC Homes For Sale (Homes By Cross, Inc. ) over 9 years ago

Here I am back 4 minutes later to say. Done.  How easy was that.  Give whoever came up with this idea a BIG raise.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - This is awesome and will definitely save me time.  Thanks!

Wow you sure get fast reponses, hope it works when logged in or do we have to be logged out?

Posted by Steve Mattison, Vietnam Veteran over 9 years ago

OOOPs... now my previous posts have TWO signatures at the bottom.  I'll live with it because I love this new feature, but looks kinda wierd.

There is great! I am going to set up mine right now, before I forget!!! Good job AR on always making the process even more easier for us!

Posted by Kayla Pearce, Real Estate Agent - Milford Delaware (First Class Properties) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - I love this feature. I have been opening a second window and attaching my signature that way. Can I copy your buttons at the bottom for your social networks and use them too? They are such cute bottle caps!

Posted by Christianne O'Malley, Exceptional Service - Delivering Results in Reno! (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates) over 9 years ago

This is way cool. I haven't used a signature in ages because it was a PITA.

Posted by Jo Olson, HOMEFRONT Realty @ LAKE Roosevelt - Stevens County (HOMEFRONT Realty) over 9 years ago

this has been long overdue... I've been using a signature for a while now... so I just copied it... but now I have to go back and delete "double" signatures!  I'm sure I'll lose thousands of points, resaving... but çest lavie!

Still... a great new feature  ... thanx

Posted by Alan May, Helping you find your way home. (Coldwell Banker Residential) over 9 years ago

Christianne- You can download them here.

Alan, you make a good point.  If you had a signature on your posts already, you will need to visit them & remove it or your posts will have double footers.

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) over 9 years ago

Hi Jeremy, I heard you announce this on Jason's show! Thanks!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 9 years ago

Great, thanks. Now I can quit the old cut and paste practice.

Posted by Gary L. Waters Broker Associate, Bucci Realty, Fifteen Years Experience in Brevard County (Bucci Realty, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Great news and a real time saver! Glad AR is always making improvements!

Posted by Mark Brian, Anderson SC Realtor (Silver Star Real Estate LLC) over 9 years ago

This is Awesome... I had to bookmark for later learning how to... I have to work sometime lol

 

Posted by June Tassillo, Let me help you with the next phase of your life! (Owner/Broker RE/MAX Elite Realty) over 9 years ago

Jeremy,

Great timesaver! Love it. However since it doubles everything on our posts, it will take hours if not days to go back and remove the other signatures.

Is there anyway you all could make it so it only goes on post from today forward?

Posted by Peggy James, Woodbridge Virginia Area Real Estate Specialist (EXIT Realty Associates) over 9 years ago

Jeremy, great. Thanks for this feature and your how to information as well.

Posted by Suma Kakani (Northern IL Realtor - Keller Williams Success Realty) over 9 years ago

Jer - I think I may just copy your idea.  Nicely done - thanks for announcing the new feature on the show today!

Posted by Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate (512-796-7653) (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) over 9 years ago

great improvement; a time saver that we will be most appreciated

Posted by Dora & Vincent Kwok, CNE - Chandler, Arizona Real Estate (HomeSmart Real Estate) over 9 years ago

I like this new feature. Great upgrade!  I agree with Mike Mueller- like the bottcaps

Posted by House Hunt (HouseHunt.com) over 9 years ago

Jeremy- I LOVE THIS! IT IS ABOUT TIME! YIPPPPEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, where did you get those cool button graphics at the bottom of your posts?

Posted by Katerina Gasset, Get It Done For Me Virtual Services (Get It Done For Me Virtual Services ) over 9 years ago

Jeremy- Never mind, I just saw your link in the comments to the graphics, thanks!

Posted by Katerina Gasset, Get It Done For Me Virtual Services (Get It Done For Me Virtual Services ) over 9 years ago

Should save a bumch of time and typos. Thanks!

Posted by Nicholas Goraczkowski, Your Mortgage Resource - (720) 83-RATES over 9 years ago

Okay Jeremy...

That was a blast. Go look what I've put at the bottom of every one of my blogs :)

<CLICK CLICK>

For anyone else that wishes to embed video as part of your permanent signature, here's the code to align the embed:

<p style="text-align: center;">

Of course you'll need to switch over to HTML. If you have some familiarity with HTML it's a piece of cake :)

TLW...ROAR!

Posted by "The Lovely Wife" (Broker Bryantnulls Wife) The One And Only TLW. (President-Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Jeremy I would love to use the code for the framed version of my vCard which is much prettier than what I am using. Is that possible? I tried the code and it was eaten.

Posted by Susie Blackmon, Ocala, Horses, Western Wear, Horse Farms, Marketing over 9 years ago

Hi Jeremy.  Looks great.

Now if I can figure out how to get one of those "subscribe to my blog" buttons!!!!

Thanks for sharing,

Ken

Posted by Ken Tracy, Helping clients buy and sell since 2005 (Keller Williams Realty Infinity) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - thank you! I am going to make mine now and even further snazzify my signature! Woot!

Posted by Christianne O'Malley, Exceptional Service - Delivering Results in Reno! (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates) over 9 years ago

TLW- Now That is Hilarious!

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - Great idea!  I always thought about how much easier it would be if you could have one (not that I have one at all).

Posted by Matt Stigliano (Kimberly Howell Properties (210) 646-HOME) over 9 years ago

What a fabulous upgrade!  I'm so sick of the copy and paste. I'm going to go work on mine right now!

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) over 9 years ago

I know...

I cracked myself up with that one :)

Do you think it's safe to delete the same video from my sidebar? It kinda looks redundant at this point :)

P.S. You so do not look like "Helpful Hannah" :)

TLW...ROAR!

Posted by "The Lovely Wife" (Broker Bryantnulls Wife) The One And Only TLW. (President-Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Jeremy... I love this idea ! Thanks so much. We really needed this.

Posted by Erica Ramus, MRE, Schuylkill County PA Real Estate (Erica Ramus - Ramus Realty Group - Pottsville, PA ) over 9 years ago

Ok, added our signature, but not entirely convinced it looks OK. Jeremy, give us your unbiased opinion!

Great added feature - we really needed it.

Thanks,

Posted by Mike & Kathleen Kelly, Hickory NC REALTORS (HICKORY REAL ESTATE GROUP) over 9 years ago

Any way to get it to not retro back to every blog?  The blogs that already had a signature now have TWO signatures...

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) over 9 years ago

ROFL @TLW !!!!!!!

now THATS how to make a COUNTER OFFER !!!!!!!

... Jer - love the new enhancement ... Cheers !

Posted by Sheldon Neal, That British Agent Bergen County NJ (Bergen County, NJ - RE/MAX Real Estate Limited) over 9 years ago

Fantastic!  I've been noticing the custom signatures and meaning to start using one, but was looking for a simple way to do it!  Now there's no excuse!

Posted by Tonda & Steve Hoagland, Real Estate - Greenwood Homes for Sale - Central I (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago

JEREMY:

Just got back from exercising my creative bent with my new saved blog signature.  Have to tell you ... thank you.   What a great addition to everyone's posts and marketing efforts!

Thanks again Jeremy that was the easiest thing I have found in tips lately.  All the others confused me but I worked on them until I got them.

Posted by June Tassillo, Let me help you with the next phase of your life! (Owner/Broker RE/MAX Elite Realty) over 9 years ago

Great stuff!  I don't have to copy and paste anymore!!

This is fantastic! I'm going to try it on my next series post in just a minute or two!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) over 9 years ago

Looks like all thumbs are way UP!  Thanks.

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) over 9 years ago

Considering that some folks signatures lines are longer than their posts this should be interesting.  Wish we didn't have to spend hours un-doing old post though.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Ok I can't keep up anymore!!! But this is an awesome feature. Now I just have to decide which footer I want. What would really be cool is if we could have more than one and then click on the one we want for that particular post.

I use different footers depending on who I am writing too. A market report will have a different footer than a post about short sales to my peers. Make sense?

 

Posted by Bryant Tutas, Selling Florida one home at a time (Tutas Towne Realty, Inc and Garden Views Realty, LLC) over 9 years ago

Posted by David M. Childress, I would love to be your Realtor® in Akron Ohio! (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) over 9 years ago

Hi Jeremy,

That's terrific news! I wonder how many more cool ideas you guys and gals are working on??? :-)

-Keith

Posted by Keith Elliott Jr, Principal Broker/Owner (KEIRE Realty Group) over 9 years ago

Donna- UNfortunately there isn't a way to do that.  You will have to edit the old posts or just have 2 signatures.

Pat & Wayne- Looks Good!

BB- One step at a time my friend.  Although that is a good idea for the future.  I will mention that to the gang.

Keith- Lets just say the list of ideas to work on is rather long. LOL

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) over 9 years ago

Awesome! Woo Hoo. And yes we want more! LOL I'm with BB I too use different footers depending on who I write to. But this is excellent anyway! ~Rita

Posted by Brian Burke, Broker & Advising Expert-Denver Luxury Real Estate (Kenna Real Estate) over 9 years ago

I'm with BB too... I would very much like to have different footers (both for different uses, and for additional SEO)... is there a way to create a footer "library", and merely select which one (A,B,C, none) would apply to each new post.

Additionally, you could set it up so that they only apply to NEW posts... old posts would be left alone.

Posted by Alan May, Helping you find your way home. (Coldwell Banker Residential) over 9 years ago

I added a signature and it did doubles on all that I had up already...is there a way to put it from the next post forward?

Or would I just have to go through every one of them to delete the old ones?

Posted by Celeste "SALLY" Cheeseman, (RA) AHWD CRS ePRO OAHU HAWAII REAL ESTATE (Liberty Homes) over 9 years ago

Never mind...just saw your response :)

Posted by Celeste "SALLY" Cheeseman, (RA) AHWD CRS ePRO OAHU HAWAII REAL ESTATE (Liberty Homes) over 9 years ago

Hi Jeremy~ I am so excited about being able to do that!  I will try it out later tonight when I have time to play with it!

Posted by Vickie McCartney, Broker, Real Estate Agent Owensboro KY (Maverick Realty) over 9 years ago

I like the idea but I too have different groups I write to so I'd need more than one........maybe that's next!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886, Arizona's Top Banana! (Phoenix Property Shoppe) over 9 years ago

Fandamntastic!  Can't wait to try it.

Posted by Bill Blair, Covington Georgia Realtor Covington Living Homes (Coldwell Banker Realty) over 9 years ago

I HEART Active Rain . . . this saves SO much time . . . I mean why reinvent the wheel signature?

Now . . . ge the feature count correct, and then life will be perfect!

Posted by Carla Muss-Jacobs, RETIRED (RETIRED / State License is Inactive) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - I went and made a new signature but unfortunately it added another signature to all my previous posts which looks weird. Is that how it's going to be or can you make it a "going forward" signature?

Posted by Christianne O'Malley, Exceptional Service - Delivering Results in Reno! (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates) over 9 years ago

Brilliant! Got mine up!

Posted by Judy Chapman (Referral Network of Illinois LLC) over 9 years ago

Okay, not so brilliant. I get the double signature problem as well!

Posted by Judy Chapman (Referral Network of Illinois LLC) over 9 years ago

Nice to have signature feature and blog backup feature too. Keep it rolling

Posted by Eric Bracht, Idaho Luxury Home Sales (Bracht Realty Group) over 9 years ago

Jeremy: Cool beans!...

Posted by Rene Fabre, Marketing in the Digital Age (First American Title) over 9 years ago

I like the idea of including subscription and social media links at the end of our posts. Is there any possibility of making the signature optional, like our choice of whether or not to allow reblogging?

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 9 years ago

Jeremy,

Thank you for the step by step instructions, now I hope I can remember them when I go to do this. I will give it a try later. 

Posted by April Solomon over 9 years ago

QUESTION: I created the signature and it looks great. However it went and posted a signature on all of my past posts that already had one - and looks very redundant. 

http://activerain.com/blogs/mikekelly

Is there any way to fix it?

Thanks

Posted by Mike & Kathleen Kelly, Hickory NC REALTORS (HICKORY REAL ESTATE GROUP) over 9 years ago

Jeremy, I don't mean to complain, but I can't go back through 600 posts and remove the signatures I have already used:)  The ability of having different signatures for different occassions would be better than to HAVE to use the same one all the time as well as changing them on past posts as well all the time.  It is not that difficult to copy and paste my signature into my post each time and still retain the flexibility of having different ones.  Just my two cents:)

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) over 9 years ago

This is a good thing -- thanks for this feature and explaining it.

Posted by Bob & Carolin Benjamin, East Phoenix Arizona Homes (Benjamin Realty LLC) over 9 years ago

Awesome, awesome awesome!!!  Thanks Jeremy :)  Loving this feature!  Just when I think AR can't get any better, they surprise us all!

Jer...

I used it already and it works great! Whoo-hoo!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) over 9 years ago

That's great, Jeremy.  Thanks.  I updated my signature, too.  Although, it's not as creative as TLW.  I'll have to work on that one. :)

Thank you, Jeremy. Thank you, AR. I will save so much time now since I do not have to cut and paste my signture and hyperlink, that I may even get a new puppy :-)

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) over 9 years ago

Many of you have asked if there is the ability to have multiple footers.  At this time, that is not an option available.  I have though forwarded this onto the team for further review. 

Also, many have asked if we can have it set to be on posts moving forward.  Unfortunately at this time this option is not available.  The only options are going to either edit your posts & remove the old one, or have 2 signatures on those posts right now.  In the future, who knows.

 

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) over 9 years ago

Carla- Your Feature Badge has been fixed :)

Posted by Kim Dean, d + b real estate, McKinney, TX REALTOR Broker/Own (www.RealFamilyRealEstate.com) over 9 years ago

I'll have to play with this...  I've been too lazy to copy/paste these things. 

So, do we need to pop a cap in your signature?

Posted by Lane Bailey, Realtor & Car Guy (Century 21 Results Realty) over 9 years ago

Jeremy, If I create a footer and want to make additional changes/enhancements to it later, can that be done? Or is the idea to do this once and be very careful about what you choose? Thanks

Posted by Barb Szabo, CRS, E-pro Realtor, Cleveland Ohio Homes (RE/MAX Trinity Brecksville Ohio) over 9 years ago

Jeremy- you guys at ActiveRain have sure been busy!  I can't wait to try it. The example of yours was a good one. 

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) over 9 years ago

Totally cool! And I found it by accident by reading a blog from someone else on AR that mentioned it!

Love it! Will be yet another thing to work on! Whew!!!

Posted by Ashley Sharum, Ebby Halliday Realtors (972.978.3109) over 9 years ago

So, if we add it, all of our old posts will have the duplicate?  I can't see going back and editing 500 posts though I do think this is a great new feature.

Posted by Christine Donovan, Broker/Attorney 714-319-9751 DRE01267479 - Costa M (Donovan Blatt Realty) over 9 years ago

Thank you, Jeremy, check out mine at the "public thank you" post I wrote about it You guys ROCK!

Posted by Elayna Fernandez, BE Positive and You'll BE Powerful! (The Positive Mom) over 9 years ago

Jeremy I am going to write a blog right now to test this signature feature. Thank you very much for sharing. Great post.

Posted by Lanre-"THE REAL ESTATE FARMER" Folayan, I don't make promises.I deliver results.SOLD HOMES (Keller Williams Select Realtors-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC) over 9 years ago

Jeremy - This will be a great feature on a go forward basis.  When people switch brokerages in the future or update their footer, I assume that the changes will flow through to all of the old posts.  Is that correct?

Posted by FN LN over 9 years ago

Great Jeremy, I often thought how nice it would be to have a "button to click" for my signature information to repeat! Thanks.

Posted by Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, Florida Waterfront and Country Club Living (Tropic Shores Realty - Ich spreche Deutsch!) over 9 years ago

Woot, I knew it was coming. Let the cat out of the proverbial bag while in Nashville teaching with Bob.

Everyone was so excited. I will play and add mine later.

This is going to be a time saver....fo sure.....

 

Posted by Missy Caulk, Savvy Realtor - Ann Arbor Real Estate (Missy Caulk TEAM) over 9 years ago

Barb- You can make changes to your signature at any time.  Just remember though, that any changes you make will affect ALL your posts.

Missy- That Darn Bob!  He always spoils my good surprises with you!

I just saved my new signature and as you suggested, took a look at my blog. Now I have two signatures for every post because it didn't eliminate the previous way I signed my blog. I know this won't be the case for future blogs and I am glad you have added this feature.
Posted by Sandy Mitchell, Making A House Your Home (The Kelly Group Real Estate) over 9 years ago
How would you suggest dealing with any links to former posts in our signature? If someone is at our AR blog, they would be directed to the outside blog if we use those links. Or if they are in the outside blog already, they may be directed to posts in the AR blog. HMMMMM..... Any ideas?

Jeremy, Once we've posted with the automatic signature in place, can we edit the signature directly on that individual post and thereby, not affect the automatic signature on the rest of the posts?. If so, this would be a way to customize the signature on individual posts.

Posted by susan weeks over 9 years ago

Jeremy:

This is great stuff. The challenge will be coming up with a signatute that works for all posts. Perhaps an add-on could be the option to create several signatures, as many email programs have - then select the one that is approrpiate depending on the post (one for listings, one for members only, one for consumers, etc.).Love this idea, though, especially being able to add video AND not having to copy and paste.

Will this change all past signatures or only future posts?

I guess I could start the scavenger hunt now as long as this post keeps popping up. 

I did this.  I have a auto signature.  Wish I could have a different one for consumer posts than posts written to others in the industry. 

It took me awhile because I don't really do html and the spacing was tough but one day I was admiring another agents signature so much I borrowed her source code.  Thanks Joyce Thomas.
