    Hi, can anyone share some tips/advice about forum signatures and directing traffic to a website. Are they best toned down or should they just sing out and sound salesy?
    An example, I have a Clickbank product that provides a beginners piano tutorial. There is a piano forum that I post on which does bring in some traffic but I'd like to experiment and try to increase it. My current signature is this:
    Are You Struggling To Make Any Real Progress With Your Piano Playing? Then Try a Free Video Tutorial Designed For Beginners And Take The 'Pain' Out Of Learning Piano!
    A.S.A.Piano!>>


    Does it sound horrible?

    I think you should just do some basic split testing and see what works. I think all products are different, especially around here. Like if you are promoting a blackhat product it would be better received than what you are describing. But I would use a service like bitly and track the clicks that way you can see which one yields more clicks.

    i appreciate your efforts. call to action signatures works well in forums. think outside. putting a question and answering it in a signature works well. i tried this with six pack niche.
