The great thing about the fat loss industry is that the
internet is absolutely full of great online forums and message
boards on the topic.
Some of these forums have literally hundreds of thousands
of members, that's a lot of active potential customers you
can tap into.
Building up a good reputation on these forums, answering
questions, helping people out, letting them know which program
you achieved your success with, will all work towards the
forum members trusting you and your advice and therefore
If your going to post on them why not earn some money by
including your affiliate hoplink in your "signature"
a Forum Signature?
If your not familiar with signatures, all they are is a couple
of lines of text you can add to the bottom of each post you
make. Many forums online are powered by Vbulletin. To add
a signature file to a vbulletin forum, just go to "User
CP" and click on Edit signature.
You can then enter a sig file which will appear automatically
at the bottom of every post you make. When people click on
it will take them to my site and if they purchase Fat Loss
Revealed you get paid.
Creating Your Forum Signature
Here's how you would set up your forum signature, always
use HTML links unless you can't , it's much better to hide
your Clickbank Hoplink if you can.
Here's an example:
Remember to replace the "XXXX" with
your Clickbank ID.

You get the drift, you can play around with any version you
like, but that shows you the basics of how to implement a
sig file with a Clickbank hoplink in it.
Some Golden Rules You MUST Abide
1 : For God's sake do NOT SPAM
And I mean under any conditions do not spam a forum with
useless posts, not only will you get banned from the forum,
you'll achieve zero sales and lose any credibility you started
The sales you make will be from people trusting you and your
word, you won't achieve this by spamming.
2. Read The Forum Rules and the Site Rules
Important: Some forums will not allow you to do this, and
you should never , ever continue to post with a signature
advertising something they do not want you to advertise. Remember
the forum owner is entirely within his rights to tell you
not to do so.
Some forums are private members only forums where folks pay
to be free from any form of advertising, you will find most
of these will not accept advertising in signature files, however
many many sites do not mind, and those are the ones you should
concentrate on. If in doubt, ask a moderator, don't even presume
that just because somebody else is doing it, it might be ok,
they may have a prior arrangement, check the rules and if
in doubt PM a moderator or the forum owner.
3. Look for the biggest/longest threads.
Some of the big forums have threads with over a half million
views, hundreds of posts , made up from possibly hundreds
of users, you can rest assured that's a pretty popular thread
and posting in it will get your post seen.
Take some time, get a feel for the thread and the people
in it,do a little research on what's being discussed, don't
just wade in offer something new and interesting and useful
to the posters, this will get you noticed quickly and people
will trust what you have to say and click on your sig file.
