Online Income

The way you market your business through a forum is not through blatant self promotion in your posts. You will find few friends that way. The way you promote your business is through your signature. That’s right – your signature. Your signature can contain information about your online business along with a link. Interested people will click on this link and find their way to your website. Sound easy? Well, yes and no. Yes, the concept is easy but forum marketing does require energy, effort and persistence. But, so does starting a home based business and generating an online income. Forum marketing is just another thing to do on your road to success.

The only forums you want to be on are serious ones where you can receive great information and resources from other members. Know in advance, that these members know their stuff! Don’t think you, as a noob member, are going to waltz right in there and steal everyone’s thunder. Respect others first and foremost. Don’t expect to make a couple of posts and then receive a ton of traffic to your online business. If you are going to do forum marketing for real, you should expect to help others more than you are helped yourself. If this isn’t your mindset, forum marketing isn’t for you.

Forum marketing can be a superb lead generation tool, but it does require a real investment of time; at least 5 – 10 posts per day minimum.

In order to do forum marketing effectively you must create a credible online presence. One way to do this is through providing useful information and solutions in your responses to others’ posts. This requires that you be constantly learning new things. If you see a post you want to respond to, make sure you know what you are talking about. You can’t offer valuable advice without researching the matter and educating yourself first.
