------------------------------ PREPARE AN EFFECTIVE SIG FILE ------------------------------

Wouldn't it be great to earn money just for answering and sending your regular/daily email? That's what I'm doing simply by employing an effective use of signature files (SIG File).

What is a SIG File? In essence it is a brief "ad" designed to getrepparttar 102668 CLICK of those who read your email messages. Most email programs will allow you to automatically include one of these "SIG File" atrepparttar 102669 end each of your emails.

WARNING: The KISS principle applies here (Keep It Simple Stupid). Don't get carried away by adding TOO MUCH to your sig file. Focus on only one program. Use an attention grabbing headline and keeprepparttar 102670 message brief and toorepparttar 102671 point (no more than 6-8 lines).

Does it work? Yes! I've been able to track--on average--2 1/2 sales per month with this technique. With this particular affiliate program that is about $500 in monthly commissions simply for sending and answering emails.
