Do you know very rarely used but profitable way to make money online? It is one of the most overlooked methods by internet marketers but has the potential to boost profit margins. This method is internet forum marketing.
Marketing in internet forums is an excellent way to bring traffic to your website. Let me show you how easy it can be.
There are literally millions of forums and message boards on the internet and all you have to do is find a number of them that address your niche. Sign up for the forum and then use the most important forum marketing tactic…ask questions.
Participate in the conversations that are going on but absolutely never try to sell anything within the body of any of your posts. Doing that will cause you to be labeled as a spammer or troll and in many cases you may be banned from the forums. Be nice and helpful, participate in the forum and you will find that you can market easily with no ill feelings.
Start building a relationship with the members of the forum by answering questions. In case you did not know it, making money online is all about building relationships with customers and potential customers.
What you need to do is market to the forum members without it appearing to market. Actually it is pretty easy. To do this you will use a signature file. This is a bit of text that appears below all of your posts. Create a file that leads your readers to your website. Offer a free product that solves a problem in the niche that the forum is based on.
Remember, ask questions, answer questions, and never try to sell in the body of your posts. Let your signature file do that for you. If you build relationships within a forum your signature file will bring traffic to your website.
