Wahm Forums - Setting Up A Click-able Signature Link

As promised, here is the video that will show you how simple it is to set up your signature link in the forums that you join. This video demonstrates how to make sure your link is click-able.

After watching the video, be sure to go and register for the forums that I have listed below.

Here are some basic rules to follow when posting at forums -

1. After registering, go introduce yourself. Talk about your likes, interests and what brought you to the forum.

2. Do not use the introduction as an opportunity to "pitch" your opportunity. This turns people off, and may get you labeled as a spammer, or banned. Let the link do the talking for you.

3. Do interact, and respond to topics that interest you and don't be afraid to ask questions.

4. If the forum offers an area for you to post your opportunity, GO FOR IT.

5. Look for active forum conversations, and add your "two cents".

6. Don't use the pm tool as a way to "pitch" people on your opportunity. Again, this is highly frowned upon.

7. Have fun and be YOU. People will only get to know, like and trust you when you are being yourself. Maintain a positive attitude and watch as people are drawn to you. There is a term for this: Magnetic Attraction.
8. If you are an expert on your topic, post about the topic. Present your case, and avoid
wrapping your opportunity into it. People see through this, and know the deal.

9. Always be friendly, and polite. Use the sense that your mom gave you....if you can't say something nice, it's probably better left unsaid. :-)

Posting Your TraVerus Business In Forums

Posting in Forums are really like posting small billboards with your advertising message all over the internet, with the traffic going to your lead capture page.

Posting In Forums to advertise your Traverus business will require that you are using a lead capture system.

For recommendations on lead capture systems that you can use, please refer to your upline, who will advise you on the best method to use.

I use a custom built lead capture page - In my studies, I have found that replicated lead capture pages do not get recognized by the search engines, however, they are still effective when used with Free classified advertising, and for forums.

How NOT to use Forums to advertise your TraVerus business...

DO NOT SPAM the forums with your offer. It is highly offensive, and can get you banned.

Do get involved in the discussions, and all of your advertising will be done in your signature link.

I will post a video on how to set up your forum signature - it's not very hard to do at all.

One forum that I highly recommend -

This is a great place to get started, look for the Traverus folder and introduce yourself!

Forums are a great way to form relationships, get answers to questions about SEO, Marketing, Blogging, and of course travel related questions are always answered quickly.

Posting Free Classified Ads To Market TraVerus

Posting Classified ads is a free, simple and very effective way to market your business.

Keep the ad simple, and make sure to leave your phone number.

Sample ads could be worded:

Travel Agents Needed

No Experience Necessary

Home Computer Required

Up to 75% Commissions paid


(Insert your lead capture page if you have one)

Taking this simple ad, go to classified ad sites such as, and You can also go to google and do a search for free classified ad sites.

Resist the urge to pay for the service until you've tracked it for results.

Make it a goal to post at least 3-4 ads per day, and be consistent.

I like because I get an email reminder that my ad has expired, and with two clicks of a mouse, I can renew it.

If you have notepad on your computer, keep your classified ad in a notepad file, so that you can copy and paste it. Make sure to rearrange the wording, you'll be able to tell who is responding, and from where they are responding by the wording of the ad.

Do more ads in the areas that are getting better responses.

That's it! Good Luck!
