Your Signature Is Your Salesman
Forums can be one of the most effective marketing methods that you can use. However, you have to find the right forum that allows you to create a link to your website that people can easily click on. This is done through your forum signature. Your signature may be composed of text, images, HTML and links that lead directly back to your website.
If you are joining a new forum, or thinking about posting somewhere that you haven’t been active before, the first thing that you need to do is determine whether or not you can put a link in your signature that will be visible and attractive enough for people to click on, so that you can get traffic to your website from that forum. If the forum does not allow links in your signature or renders them so small as to not be useful, avoid posting on that forum and go somewhere else.

What to put on your signature is going to take some thought. What you need to understand, is that your signature is intended to provide people with an easy-to-follow link to your website without being obtrusive. So, you don’t want a forum signature where you have a giant link to your site in bright red that looks ugly and completely overpowers anything else on the forum. You do want a visible and easy-to-follow link. More importantly than that, you want to give people a reason to follow the link.
That means, you need to create some sort of reason using the text or images in your signature. For example, you can invite them to get something for free or take advantage of a special offer or even to find out advice on the particular topic of the forum. Just make sure that you don’t only put a link to your website without giving them a reason to click on that link.
