One of the things I do is post to at least 2 forums on a regular basis.
It does 2 things for me:
1) helps to establish me as an expert in my niche
2) grows my list of targeted subscribers as my sig file points to a squeeze page for a lead magnet related to much niche.
Yesterday I posted a LONG post with some advice for someone who just jumped into IM doing PPC right away without even learning anything about it first. He started a blog without defining a specific niche. And he did not spend any time growing a list of targeted subscribers. He wondered why he wasn’t making tons of sales and was getting frustrated with his lack of success.
When I went to post today, someone said that my post was the best advice he had ever read!
That was real encouragement for me to continue posting to at least 2 forums every day.
So, does anyone else use forum marketing for their business and get good results?
I’m not doing any forum marketing. I’m still in the process of identifying my top traffic sources (per Sean’s instructions in many of his audios). Sean talks about forum marketing in several of his traffic audios.
I stay engaged in a few groups, but plan to increase my efforts. It’s a low-cost, potentially high-return endeavor…. IF you choose appropriate forums, remember why you’re there, and don’t let it turn into a time drain.
I again got another good response to the post I made on Mon. as well as a couple of new subscribers. The ROI on that single post is amazing! So I am posting another long answer to the questions I got about that single post.
I have read that in order to get a great response and to establish yourself as a leader in your niche, you need to post great content. And I am finding that to be so true.
