Email signatures are the best way to represent yourself in each and every email you send out, in kvCORE or otherwise. Think of it almost as a business card that sends with every communication to your contacts. If you do not already have a signature they are pretty quick to create and only need to follow a few guidelines:
It should identify you and your business/brokerage.
TIP: Adding a logo, either yours or your brokerage's (or both), is also a great aspect to include. Pictures are more memorable and quickly recognized versus just plain text names.
It should include direct ways to contact you.
It should link to your kvCORE website.
You can also add links to your social media and legal disclaimers, but remember to keep the signature easy to read; too many icons, colors, or text can overwhelm the receiver or even get caught in a spam filter! Simple and elegant is what you want to aim for.
This is a great example that incorporates all the suggested features while staying succinct and visually easy on the eyes.
Once you have your desired signature created, you can copy/paste it into your kvCORE profile or save time by creating the signature in kvCORE at the beginning.
Adding/Creating a Signature in kvCORE
Regardless of whether you want to build your signature in kvCORE or simply want to paste a copy, you will need to be logged into your kvCORE account.
1. Log into your kvCORE account.
2. Click on your email address in the top right corner.
3. Click on the 'My Profile' option from the drop-down that appears.
4. Click on the blue "Edit" button to the right of the Details box.
5. Scroll down to the Signature box and build or paste your signature there.
6. Remember to scroll back up and click the green "Save" button.
You also have the ability to build your signature using HTML if that is something you prefer or if your signature was created by a third party who gave you a block of code to add to your email settings.
Simply click the caret icon along the top of the signature's toolbox to access the source code for that area.

If you create a unique signature please make sure it follows the exact format that CASL demands to remain in compliance.
Including the Signature in Every Email
Now that you have your signature created and saved in kvCORE, there is a second step you will want to take so that this signature is now sent out at the bottom of each and every email message that is sent from kvCORE.
When looking at your profile out of Edit mode you will see a toggle just under your signature. You should toggle this on so that all emails sent from kvCORE automatically include your signature.
TIP: This profile toggle overrides any other signature toggles that exist in kvCORE. If you have not already toggled on the "Include Signature" option in your Smart Campaign templates, your signature will still send as long as you have the profile toggle enabled.
