PC Long Signature
Use the complete "long signature" when sending a new email or appointment to a client.
This is created in HTML and goes well on emails with Word used as the email editor. Include some product advertising, like what's new on your monthly newsletter. It should have the company colors.
However, you shouldn't use your long signature on
every sent email. It's recommended to have a simpler version for internal emails and appointments:

PC Short Signature
Use a really short signature (your first name or initials) or no signature at all in internal emails as people already know who you are.
Note #1: You can see Ulysses using this rule in practice, along with other best practices, on this short demonstration video.
