    Lately I have been obsessed with twisting old methods.

    I found this one from the admin Zwielicht giving clarity on the topic of how to rent out your forum signature. You can find the original post Here:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/guide-renting-out-your-signature-space.1038728/#post-11160723

    I really like forums for free traffic. I don't think there is a better source for free traffic based on how targeted it is. That being said I am apart of a ton of forums.

    I use these forums to promote affiliate products or other things I want to promote. I have hundreds of accounts on hundreds of forums. Most of the time they are just sitting there not making me any money but have tons of comments on them generating traffic.

    Imagine if all those accounts had their signatures rented out and I was making money on them just for having an active account on a forum? What if ten of them were making me money? 20... I hope you see where I am going with this.

    You aren't going to get rich this way. You can however make a pretty passive income on top of whatever you are promoting.

    Lets say you use the forums to promote your weight-loss YouTube channel. All of your post are utilized to promote your newest video or an affiliate product but you have neglected your signature. You can rent out that space and make some cash off of what you were already doing.

    Some would argue, "why don't you put your YouTube channel in your signature?" well that seems a bit overkill to me seeing that your post is going to have the link to the newest video you are promoting. If you are just starting out, Making some cash might be the better option.

    So basically for those who didn't catch on, you join a bunch of forums. The more the merrier. Make multiple accounts on those forums. Post a shit ton with these accounts. To find people interested in renting out your signature space just fill the space with "SIGNATURE FOR RENT" and you should have some offers roll in.

    If you have say 10 forums that each have 3 accounts on them, that's 30 total accounts. If you rented each one of those signatures out for somewhere around $50-$100 a month, you're looking at $1,500 to $3,000 a month. Not to shabby.

    You can cut and paste articles from blogs for content, steal posts from one forum and cut and paste them to another. Rewrite popular posts and put a twist on them. Cut and paste tweets, post memes. there is tons of easy content to use to do this with.

    If you want to make this passive, you can hire someone from upwork to do this for you. pay them say $4 an hour a couple times a week to post for you.

    If you are broke and have no money to get the ball rolling on things, this is a really great method for you. chances are you aren't going to get rich from it, but you could make a good amount to fund your first start up or a nice little side hustle.

    Ill answer any questions you have down below.

    In order to rent a signature for $50 you should be very active on a forum and make a minimum of 7 quality posts per day.
    So 30 accounts will need at least 210 quality posts per day!!
    Lets say you need at least 2 minutes to make a quality comment ( you need to read the post and not shit commenting ) it will take you 420min or 7 hours a day.
    And i am taking the minimum time, because it took me 10 min to read and post this comment here lol.
    Not to mention the fees that you have to pay to forum owners. ( $97/year on bhw , maybe more or less on other forums )

    Or. You can focus and grow one account and spend a couple hours a week interacting with others who are in the same niche as you. Take that clout and segway it into networking and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of business relationships, as well as a stellar full-time role based on information learned from the one forum versus nothing gained from 30. Treat forums as houses for knowledge assets instead of churn and burn cash cows. That is the shit that is ruining places like BHW.

    Also, I'd love for you to find 10 forums right now that have enough activity where people will purchase signature rentals for the prices you are suggesting, as well as wouldn't ban you for spamming, or require a certain time expenditure in activity initially and investment (like BHW) to allow for this kind of thing. I am highly doubtful in the world of Discord, FB groups, Slack, etc, that there are enough active forums in niches that one person would have expertise on to provide enough value to where people would purchase signature space.

    You post great stuff most of the time, but this one was definitely an "omg scale" without doing any background research or numbers behind it. No factoring in investments and time necessary, etc. I made a similar what-if-dollar-figure thread three years back. I tried to factor in the unknowns instead of closing my eyes and throwing around dollar figures with no substance or testing: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/a...king-five-hours-a-week-fill-in-the-xs.882988/

    Finally, what the fuck is with the clickbait title?

    EDIT: Oh nevermind, I see your YouTube video. Ten minutes of a screenshot of @Zwielicht 's thread from years back with you talking in the corner of the screen. Yikes.

    If you’re broke and a newb on making money online, I’m guessing time is the one thing you have in abundance
    I don’t know that you need 7 posts per day. I think you are just pulling that number out of thin air. I post a couple times a week and have had offers way higher than 50$. I think 1 post a day or a few cut and paste posts are just fine. But you’re right it’s going to be a bit of a grind.
    As for fees, the make money online niche makes you pay but most other forums don’t. Even if you did have fees, it would pay for itself in one or two
    Months.
    Weight loss has a billion forums. Just do a search for a niche + forums and if you count 10 or more forums, that’s a good place to start.

    OP, what’s with all the regurgitated threads? It’s getting comical at this point.

    Of course it wouldn’t be easy. I of course didn’t research this one bit. It doesn’t take a lot of research to know that it would be hard work and would be a time suck.

    This is an option for people who don’t have money or experience and have seen the the same methods over and over.

    Not every post is going to be a home run and this one is definitely a more outside the box.

    As for the title, it’s “Make Money from renting out your forum signature” how is that clickbait? I’m guessing you just wanted to point out the video.

    I’ll try harder @Sherb to put out content to your liking.

    Exactly my thoughts. Whenever I see It's OP I try to guess which method he reposted based on the title. I guess right 90% of the time :D

    If your posts generate high view counts people will pay.
    I answered this in the very first line. I’m obsessed with twisting things lately. In all honesty good luck finding a truly original idea.

    This isn’t a twist on anything. If you’re trying to be some marketing guru, you’re doing a shitty job.

    Deal. When I get Jr VIP I will rent my signature for $50 to the guy then get your $100 and give him back his $50 +$25 and then I pocket $25. Easy.

    Yeah, without listing the forums where this is possible, the "method" is non-existent.

    Some of your posts are interesting and I've seen you post very clever twists, but this wasn't worth the time.

    Another idea is to pay others on forums to have a signature link with some CPA/affiliate offer specific for that forums niche.

    If you're in a Golf forum, pay active members to have a "Win a free Golf Club" CPA offer in their signature, for example. I need to test it someday.

    So, How many accounts you have on BHW?

    I think you are doing the same thing here.

    BHW as a big fórum can give a stable and growing audience when used properly, what Op is doing is this, its his hustle so whatever.
    Its like the cool girl who start to make videos, people forget she is naturally beautyfull and dont realize that this give her a empathy boost by Nature, her vídeos are basically the common knowledge like "Just do It" or anything like this, its the type of knowledge that is so general that you cant say its BS even If is newbie general knowledge
    Op boost his value even with controversial replies, the goal of renting a signature is basically implicit marketing that gets spread as the more people see it.
