In Forum Marketing, we still can get this duality to work harmoniously:
Self Promotion and Selfless Promotion.
3 Key Ways to get the Posts and the Forum Signature File working in harmony.
1.The members are asking for help in a particular topic,these are targeted and ready audience.You provide the solution in your posts, all adhering to the good Forum rules, no links in post, not directing to the signature file.
There are many ways to the above writing of posts.
These are my Strategy : a.To achieve the maximum impact, I would focus on a few selected topics where I have expertise and experience to be authentically useful and insightful.
b.I would only answer those questions that are related to my focused topics. I would leave other topics for other experts to answer.
c.I would prepare elaborately the answers, making them really useful.
d.I would prepare and post topics that relate to my focused topics separately and use links to direct my answered posts to these detailed articles.
e.To stay clear of the self promotion tendency, I would endeavour to avoid mentioning of my programs if possible.
2.The above ways would not contravene the Rules and you are helpful with good and detailed solutions indeed with all the niche focused postings.
These would be your “Self Promotion”indirectly, ethically,humanely and is a result of the above selfless actions, epitomised by this exemplary Tissa’s tagline-Give,Get,Grow:

a.Strong Brand Profile The expertise illustrated by the well prepared answers and the niche focused posts will enhance one’s personal Brand.

3. The GROW path of the tagline. In preparation for the detailed and well research posts, you are learning, checking your thinking and insights. You would be refining what you know and new knowledge that you get.
You have a series of inter-related posts.
What would prevent you from re-package all the posts and compile into real useful articles, and eventually eBooks.
All these can be published in Article directories, websites, blogs.
And in your other forums participations, re-worked posts can be used, very efficiently and effectively. Duplicating the above good marketing many folds.
