This really go's out to all the newbies and some of the old schoolers on here. It's fantastic were all sharing and learning. Some people will be mad at this but this needs to be said...

People asking how to get leads and how to make sales need to stop putting in their signatures make x per day or how I generate 1000 leads a month.

That's great you want to learn how to do all that but don't lie to people and have your signature say how I make so much money or generate tons of leads per week and then ask how to make money because you can't.

If you're new or experienced, learn and take immediate action and provide as much value as possible and see how much faster you can achieve your goals.

    Sounds like Post Bait to me!

    By the way, how do you get back links to your site? I'm just asking!

    no post bait Rus, just see crazy amount of signatures saying make tons of money or generate tons of leads but asking how to generate leads or money. I think honesty is something important in business especially if trying to build relationships with clients or customers. I generate backlinks through various methods but get a lot through social media google friendly sites and then do a little fasteasysuccess magic (positive but very unique) and pull max google results.

    I'm not sure where you're looking traffic bug, I've seen tons. There's one, I wont out the person but they were asking how to generate business in a certain field and in that signature it says how I generate 2 clients a day in that business.

    Then there was a reply and he asked a question to that because he doesn't know where to start. Like I said Everyone should learn and keep learning to become succesful but I think we should always express value and honesty.

    I think the reason why people make a post asking How to Make Money Online and the signature says Learn How to Make Money Online is that if somebody Googles that particular phrase and the post comes up in the search engines then they are hoping to get some so called targeted traffic to their site.

    I do not really have any other explanation for that. Maybe they just crazy.:confused:

      could see if they were trying to do that but the way I seen them do it is wrong. Plus most say how i instead of how to or how I can make which would make more sense for seo purposes.

      They're not crazy, nor are they doing it for search traffic.

      Most of them are doing it because some report or ebook told them to post to forums with a link to that report or ebook and they'd be rich by Sunday.

      Most of the time, when someone asks how to make money and they have a "how to make money" sig, I just refer them back to their sig...

        John, I have to tell you I do exactly the same thing. As a matter of fact, just yesterday I was on another forum and someone was asking a question regarding SEO techniques and what affects a site's SEO. The funny thing was, his signatures said something like "SEO Experts from India" and "SEO work for your site." I could not help myself but laugh and tell him to click on his own signature for details and an answer to his question.

        I also have to say that a lot of people hire freelancers to help them build backlinks, YET do not quite explain the right way to do it, and we get silly things like those kinds of posts.:rolleyes:

    I agree - There are waaaay too many signatures with "How I made 23684827462 last year, let me show you how" ... and all they do is pitch some crappy ebook with recycled information they cant even apply themselves. Doesnt really inspire a lot of credibility, does it?

      I call it foolishness. Oh! It can only inspire suspicion.

      And other people see you as a spammer or "scammer" - either way you are not a good guy.

      I can't believe such people and I can't do any business with them.

        I find these posts somewhat strange.

        What if they didn't create the product but was selling it as an affiliate?

        Oh, then here comes the crowd who will complain about them not testing each and every product out there before selling it.

        I don't believe anyone who says they test every product out there that they resell.

        There isn't enough time in the day.

        Ok, back to the op...

        Basically, you are saying that people cannot resell products they purchased with PLR or resellable rights, they cannot sell products as an affiliate until they make money online with other markets or niches?

        Well, what if they are selling how to lose 20 pounds in 6 weeks while being skinny as a rail?

        What if they sell how to pickup women at gas stations when they are married?

        Nope, they cannot do that unless they have experience.

        Forget ghostwriters then.

        Time to give up and get a job I guess.

    I'm a little suspicious already of anyone who claims to make big money online anyways. It's my experience that anyone who IS making that kind of money would never create a signature link claiming they are. They instead are much more subtle with their sig files.

    I find these post amusing, they are only done for 2 reasons, the person posting wants thanks or they want there sig to be seen. Now you complain about people who say get 1000 leads a month but in your sales page you guarantee that you will increase there business by 10-20% and you show no proof that you have even done anything, you promise quite a lot on your sales page with out any proof...

    Sure your sig is slightly toned down but still, why complain about stuff your doing your self, I don't get it.

    Honestly...you've been subtly or not-so-subtly pimping your signature for a week now. Stop already. If you can't get legitimate attention to your signature by actually adding value to the forum...well...Warriors are not stupid.

    I just had to comment on your name here. Maybe I'm just getting old but the reason I clicked on this thread was because I read your name quickly - I don't know if others do the same thing - just skimming through the list of threads. I thought your name was fantasysuccess and with a title like "This has to be said" I just had to click through.
    You're right though. The only success these people would get by asking a question about leads or? and then advertising in their sig about how to do the exact thing they are asking is only going to lead them to one kind of success and that is in their fantasies. Just had to say it!

  • I am new to online marketing, yet I can proudly say I have a husband who guides me well. And after he recommended I signed up to WF, one of the first things he said was, "do not ask stupid or obvious questions. I can answer those." I personally did not get it, until now. Thanks honey, I NOW understand that I should not ask how to write a quality article if that is supposed to be my expertise. Thanks for the thread...

    Um...anybody that has spent any amount of time here HAS seen this said. Many times. Many, many times.

    This isn't anything new.

    People have been making variations of your post for as long as I have been a member, and will continue to do so as long as people ask for basic information about the exact thing they're pimping in their sigs.

    All the best,

    p.s. In my ever so humble opinion, I think a more accurate title for this thread would be: "Not To Sound Like A Broken Record, But..."

    p.p.s. To be fair, you do raise a valid point with your post.

    I guess I'll respond real quick to 2 people real quick in this thread-

    Jenny Thanks for your opinion but you're dead wrong about this post. I'm not sure if you have looked but I put a lot of tips and responded to people with tips as well. If I wanted to pimp out my signature all I have to do is put how i make millions a day or how I get a million hits a day like the point of my whole post. Plus if I wanted to pimp out my sig all I have to do is break down the free chapters in my sig into 40 to 50 posts.

    And butters if you're talking about my marketing site not in my signature, then take a look again, plenty of testimonials.

    To Your Success-
