Forum marketing is another one of the great free
yet targeted traffic generators. I have had added tons of subscribers to my email list as a direct results of forum marketing, But there are a few things you have to know about it to make it effective.
Don’t try to sell anything in your posts. The idea is that by providing good advice
and becoming a genuine contributor, people will click on your site link because
they’ll start to see you as an expert in your niche.
Use a search engine to find forums in your niche. Just type forums followed by
your keyword. Example: forums traffic exchanges
The best way to approach forums is to find ones
in your niche, (obviously). Read the forum rules
and pay particular attention to the rules on
making posts. It’s best if you can find forums that
allow you to include a signature block at the end
of your posts. This is where you can put a link to
your Tep Splash or Squeeze Page, and add a catchy title or subject line.
When you start making posts, give advice where possible and you can also ask
genuine questions. Show real interest, which shouldn’t be difficult if you’re
genuinely interested in your niche. Find a way to answer peoples questions or give them solutions.
Here Are Some Forum Posting Tips
Make sure after you register to set up your signature.
This is usually a little 250 character signature/ad which
will appear in every one of your posts.
After you post your ads, the next step is to start to read the
ads of other posters. You have the opportunity to respond,
to these posts, ask questions, solicit joint ventures or just comment.
If you have set up your signature file in the profile section
your signature will get included in all your comments.
The cool part of responding to other people’s posts is that not
only will the poster be notified of your response but they will
also see your signature. This is additional advertising for you.
Plus all your replies, comments, and signature files are posted
on the forum website and indexed by the search engines.
Some people have replied to thousands of forum posts.
This gives them unbelievable amounts of free traffic and
permanent links in the search engines.
So do not just post your ads. Set up your signature in the
profile section and reply to other poster’s ads.
You will be surprised how much you will learn as well.
You may find some valuable joint venture partners,
advertising opportunities etc.
Also make sure that you click the “Notify me when
a reply is posted” checkbox when you set up new posts.
This way you will be notified
when someone replies to your post.
So to summarize:
1. Set your signature ad in the profile section after registration (use a splash or squeeze page so people can subscribe for more information, build your email list always first and foremost).
2. Do not just post your ad and leave. Read the ads of others
and post your comments which will include your signature
3. Always check “Notify me when a reply is posted” when
creating a new post.
4. Answer peoples questions, they will trust and respect you, this will
help build your brand image and credibility
****Note if the forum allows, always upload a picture of your self, not your dog.
You are building your credibility.
