Forum marketing is one of the easiest ways to generate back links to your website,
as well as potential subscribers and customers. With no shortage of active communities
to choose from, regardless of your niche market, you can instantly develop an online reputation
and reach out to prospects all within a few posts and a well crafted signature file,
featuring links to your landing pages. One thing to keep in mind when participating
in online forums, is to start off slow and steady. You don’t want to bust onto the scene,
spamming the threads with a lot of “me, too!” responses, because it won’t be long before you find
yourself banned or simply ignored. Be helpful, share tips, resources and information,
and approach forum marketing in a similar way that you would approach social networking,
by offering help and slowly building awareness of your brand. When scouring for forums in your niche
market, enter in keywords using the following format: “your niche+forums” or “your niche+discussion
board”. This will bring up dozens of forums and active groups in your market.
When creating your signature box, be sure to feature a free report or resource to entice people
to click your link in the same way that you would create your article marketing resource boxes.
The easiest way to direct traffic to your website from a forum is by offering something of value, at
no cost. Focus on building a list of active subscribers that you can follow up with in the
future with both free content, balanced out with promotional offers.
