Making money is probably the main reason why you are doing Internet marketing. It is almost certainly why you started an online business in the first place.
You can either pay someone to drive traffic to your website or you can spend time to do it yourself. When you are starting out, you will probably be short of funds so traffic generation will be down to you.
I will teach you how to generate free web site traffic from forum posts so you can earn money to pay someone to help you build your traffic faster. Right, let’s make a start on creating your online marketing campaign.
After blog postings, forum posting is perhaps the most successful way of getting free traffic to your website; it is so successful that you may never use any other method of driving traffic to your site.
With any forum marketing you should join forums that are related to your niche but make sure there are many active members contributing and discussing on the forum regularly. With any forum you must follow the rules and conditions laid down by the forum owner(s) or moderator(s). If you do not follow the forum etiquette you are likely to be banned.
After signing up to the forum you should create a signature with a link to your web site so other forum members can visit your site to find out more about you. This is your ticket to earning a good income from forum members.
You can have a different signature on every forum you post on so you should perhaps point each different signature to a different one of your websites assuming you have more than one website.
The more posts you make means you will start to be seen as an expert on this particular forum and people will start to seek out your advice and get to know you.
Every post you make should be concise, accurate and correct. If you don’t know the answer, either research it or do not answer it. Also, only answer posts from the current day’s postings, there is no point answering posts from a few days ago, you need to be near the top of the board at all times.
One thing you must not do is get involved with any arguments on the forum. If for any reason someone has a go at you, do not retaliate, if you do it will soon become a slanging match which you at least, will not win so don’t even try.
