Be Consistent With Branding YourselfThe longer you are online, the more important it is to create your biography; YOUR BRAND and for the most part keep it the same unless there are updates, then you should add those; such as a new website, a new book coming out, you received an award or special recognition for something.

In January of 2014, I made a post of how important it is to have the most professional photo of yourself that you can; white background, business-like appearance, etc. 8 Easy Steps to Improve Your Profile Photo   I cannot stress enough that your profile picture should “NOT” be of the dog or the cat or your questionable night out last Saturday.

Along with your branding, having a standard signature in your email is another way to build your brand.  People will begin to recognize your picture and see that you have your contact information readily available when needed.  

A friend of mine, Lillian DeJesus who owns Tigerlily Virtual Assistance tipped me off to this little gem that you can use to create a simple responsive email signature with live social media links.  WiseStamp enables you to easily customize & add personalized email signatures on email services such as- Gmail ,Yahoo ,Aol mail, Hotmail.  Unfortunately for some and for me, it is not available for Outlook or Outlook Express at this time but they are working on it.  Lillian’s signature looks great;

I will be honest with you, after working with WiseStamp for quite a while, I could not get it to work on my Gmail account.  I deleted the application extension from my Firefox browser, closed it down and restarted it to make sure the app was gone.  So my intended SlideShow will be altered somewhat to show you an alternate solution.  

I would like to know what your opinion is from the last screen in the Slideshare.  

You are probably wondering why I decided to leave the SlideShow in my post.  I thought about it and realized that just because I could not get it to work with my system, doesn’t mean that it will not work for you.  I am assuming because I have Outlook set up as my default mail client is the reason why it would not work for me.
