Most likely f it was already answered, but it can find only really old posts on this.... Is there any way to add a signature? Do I need to upgrade my membership to use a signature?

I believe broswoodwork is right.


The requirements are under "Promote Your Business"

I see. Thanks for the clarification. So I need to be an INSIDER or have more than 100 quality posts. Are there people with signatures? For some reasons, I don't see any posts with signatures (except for MJ DeMarco) . That's why I asked.

I believe it's an "or", you either need more than 100 posts or be an Insider. You don't need both.

And there are many people here with signatures. Here's a thread with many users that have signatures, including the first post.


Not everyone chooses to use a signature. If they don't have a use for a signature, why spend the time to make one? Though many others do find value in using a signature. Here are some ways I've seen users using their signature:
  • Linking to their progress thread
  • Linking to their Gold and Notable threads
  • Linking to their Marketplace ad
  • Sharing one of their favorite quotes
  • Advertising their business

I guess it might be that if you have a signature, then you see other people's signatures.
If you don't have a signature, you won't see that of others.

Cos I can't see anyone's signature, even in that thread that was linked to above, and I assume it's because I don't have a signature.
Might be wrong though.

I use my signature so that, when I’m on my phone, I can easily point people to links instead of trying to find the article and link to it.

I can say: “Listen to the first radio interview in my signature”, or “Check out the Inbound/Sales thread in my signature”.

This is a timesaver for me. It also means that whatever’s in my signature is stuff I either link to a lot (useful for me to know), or my own threads that I want to find easily.

Thanks for the answers! This is very helpful.
Just want to understand the rules better. Most of the signatures that I have seen don't have links to external websites, so I assume, a signature can only have a link to thefastlaneforum's treads, correct?

I believe after 100 posts you can link out.

Think of it this way: why link out till you’ve added value anyway? No-one will click unless they think it will be worth their time.


Here’s a game you can play, or at least think about:
  • Don’t link out.
  • Don’t tell people what you do.
  • Do help people.
  • Do be seen helping people.
  • See if people start tagging you in other threads.
  • See if people start asking for links to your services or products.
