Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites

Using forums for your marketing methods is nothing new when it comes to generating sales for your website. Finding the right forums within your niche isn't actually that difficult. All you'll really have to do is go to Google and do a basic search for "(your niche) forum" and it should give you a decent amount of results for that niche. You can then sift through them to see which are the most active and have the most members which would give you a great starting list of where to target Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites


So why do people join forums?
People join forums because they are filled with like minded people who can answer questions and are there to bounce ideas off of. It doesn't matter what niche you're in, you can usually find a forum for it and start posting quality information to get responses from people interested in the same things you are. There are big "forums" such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, etc. These are now massive platforms for people to post what they want, but in the end they have the same core setup as a forum does Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites

If you start working at home by yourself you may miss that person to person interaction. Forums are a way to get talking to people either in a chat or on a forum thread. I've actually joined Skype groups with like minded Online Marketers and we shoot the sh*t with each other and treat each other like best friends even though most of us have never met Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites Forums are a great way to get your questions answered if no one you're friends with in real life is interested in what you do. I can't tell you how many times I've started talking to friends about what I do and they just give me blank stares because they have no clue what I'm talking about lol. I use forums as a way to talk to people who love the same thing I do, Internet Marketing Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites


Free Traffic
Since 99% of online forums are free to join, you can get free website traffic by being an active member. You can post threads about topics you're interested in and get people to come in and talk. You can answer questions with detailed responses so that you're helping someone out with a problem they're having. Doing both of those things will bring in traffic if you've set up your signature link properly. This is where your advertising comes into play lol. Most forums will allow you to use a signature under every single one of your posts on their forum. You may have to hit a certain post count before you are able to use the signature, but usually it's not a high number and it can likely be hit in a day or two if you're posting enough. I haven't come across a lot of good forums that have post counts above 100 in order to enable your signature links. Trust me, 100 posts isn't tough to do lol. Just add some quality content to the forum and you'll be there in no time Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites


Knowledgeable People
You can find some pretty smart people in your niche by just going to forums and talking to random strangers. You'd be amazed how many people will know as much as you, or more, about the niche that you're in. If you're posting quality content on the forum they're members of they will likely come in and talk about it. You can then interact with them and also friend them on that forum in order to keep up to date on their posts. Depending on your settings, you will get a lot of notifications about what they are doing. This is why I will always configure my settings as soon as I join so that I don't get 100 emails an hour about new posts generated by members I'm friends with lol. Becoming friends with these people will usually pay off in the long run. You can do joint ventures and work on the same project, and since you both know your stuff it will be easier to succeed Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites


Affiliate Marketing
Now this is hit or miss when it comes to forums because a lot of the forum owners are wise to affiliate links. Posting affiliate links in your signature is usually ok, but if you're starting sales threads with affiliate links inside of them, you'll likely get banned pretty quick. You'll need to get tricky when it comes to affiliate marketing since a lot of websites want to only see unique products that you're connected with and not just affiliated with.




In Conclusion:
This is just the tip of the iceberg which is Forum Marketing, but it's a decent amount of content to give you an idea of how it works Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites You need to put in the work before you can start seeing some traffic coming into your website through your signature links and eventually turning into sales. You will be building good relationships with smart people within your niche, which has the potential to turn into a business relationship later on down the road. You have to be active in order for everything to turn out well Why people use forums as marketing methods for their websites

Forum is a discussion board where people from across the world, having interest in different topic share their opinion. If you share interesting and useful stuffs, people will be genuinely interested to check your website. If they like what you have published, they will be closely following your website. Now this is an advantage.

Yeah, using forums to your advantage when it comes to free marketing and possible advertisement in the form of posts or maybe having your website linked in your signature, is the easiest thing to do. I still think the majority of people that do use them for marketing purposes see them as a source of free and good traffic increase. I mean, why wouldn't you tap into that world of free traffic? you have SO many forums and all sorts of people on them. If you know how to advertise well and not all ''into your face/spam'', you will for sure attract at least some of the forum users to visit your website.

The socializing and posting side of forums is just an added bonus.

I am on over a dozen forums and I am active on these forums. I joined most of these forums as a paid poster (the forums were available through Postloop and The Forum Wheel), however, later I began to market my websites. The forums provided me a good platform to generate backlinks and gain traffic.

No doubt, utilizing discussions further bolstering your good fortune with regards to free promoting and conceivable commercial as posts or possibly having your site connected in your mark, is the simplest thing to do. Regardless I think the lion's share of individuals that do utilize them for showcasing purposes consider them to be a wellspring of free and great movement increment. That is to say, is there any valid reason why you wouldn't take advantage of that universe of free movement? you have such a large number of gatherings and a wide range of individuals on them. On the off chance that you know how to promote well and not all ''into your face/spam'', you will without a doubt pull in at any rate a portion of the gathering clients to visit your site.

Forums are one of the most well-known ways to find people with common interests.

I particularly like this tool, but I'd rather bet on diversification. That is, I prefer to bet on SEO, social media, and other strategies simultaneously.

You can get free and enough content by allowing guest comments and letting people posting on the forum. You can buy paid writers to write the posts or reply to the discussions. You can get the targeted audience on your forums. On forums, you can write the solutions of their problems. You would have more chances to get your query to be indexed top in the search engine.

Forum registration (Forum signature), Forum post and forum thread reply are the most important SEO technique for getting traffic to website for the life time. At first you need to identify your website category and sub category and should need to search and find out the related forums by keyword research based and you can start creating forum signature (important do follow back link) and forum new post with your website link and forum thread reply with your website address.

I have tried out many money talk or bitcoin talk forums and place my blog links as the forum signatures there. Then I gradually post there so that I get many free backlinks to my blog.
However, my free blogs doesn't got many views and also no page ranks exists. Though I got very few referrals. How may I improve my sites freely because I don't have much budget.
Thanks !t

The business and marketing networking possibilities of free forums seem to be a pretty huge resource. I do need to start linking my sites to my forum activity, but I have not gotten around to that yet, and I want to do it in a way that is not obtrusive. Forums can also put your knowledge and expertise, especially when it comes to writing, in the public eye.

A forum signature is another free way to advertise and send traffic to your website. I'm into several forums and I noticed that some forums do allow members to have signature links on their posts. In a forum where not too many members have them, a signature link will stand out and will more likely receive visits out of curiosity by other members. I've clicked some of those links and when the content are engaging, I'd actually linger on the site. I'll surely take advantage of this once I'm done sprucing up my blog.

I join forums not only to earn but also to learn. In fact, I have learned a lot about money-making ideas from forums. And if I have a business to promote, I would surely promote it in forums that allow such posts because in forums, the users there are related to business. And the reaction of forum users are more dynamic than in the social media. However, it is not that easy to find forums that allow marketing posts.

We can certainly market our sites through joining forums because I believe that after social media another place we can meet more people are on forums.If we answer questions intelligently and satisfactory with our site URL in tow on our profile or signature, people are bound to want to check out our blog, so we can drive traffic for free from forums just by showing our writing skills during the interaction.
