How To Create A Signature File

 The best form of advertisement online is your signature line. A sig line is a few sentences inserted with every email you send out. It is another form of online business card. Most email programs will let you set up a signature of about six lines. Some will allow full messages. Include your URL, a short description, phone number, address, whatever may be relevant. Your signature goes to anyone you send a message to. Here is my sig line as an example:

By creating several different signature files and storing them as templates you can pick and chose which ones you want to use. If you have a newsletter and you are corresponding with a subscriber you might use a signature file pertaining to one of your products.

I have a different signature file for every product I can sell from my site. If my correspondence doesn't warrant a blatant mention of the product, I can include a subtle nudge by including it in my signature file.

Don't create a signature that is miles long. I have received messages where the signature was longer than the message and included every single affiliate program the sender was involved in. I, personally, consider this a form of spamming.
