Default Free Promotion: Signature Advertising

How about signature advertising as a marketing strategy?

"Signature advertising is simply including your signature in your postings on forums/newsgroups and at the end of any emails you send out. It is a proven fact that about 75% of people on the Internet today will click on your signature links. And it's 100% free advertising."

Catch it @ http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/ar...ng/009627.html

Do you think signature advertising works?

I agree... Most people will click the link you leave... Once your dropping your links it's essentially that you get into the habit of reading your server logs for referrals...

It is a very effective way to find interested and active communities and weed out the communities with really nasty forum mods... ( I can't believe how many legitimate posts I get removed simply because someone feels that signatures are some sort of spam... )

I like the 10 post rule in effect here... If you ask me... It's all you need.

Signatures are a good way to get targeted traffic. It's a shame so many people don't realise this and just spam the forums with their links in the actual posts.

Thanks for the post.
