There are tons of ways to promote your product on the web and get targeted traffic back to it and make some sales, but there are evergreen marketing methods such as forum marketing that will never die. Given below are 3 effective forum marketing tips that will help you get highly targeted traffic without putting in any kind of money for investment.
One of the most ignored forum marketing tips is to post in those threads that are popular or are gaining popularity. If you want the best possible results from your forum marketing than you should target popular threads. It’s just logical that when you put your posts in a forum conversation that has a high volume of readers that your signature and links will be viewed by many people. High trafficked forum topics can lead to much more exposure than those that don’t get many viewers to them. Grab the limelight for yourself by starting a popular thread. For example, on Forum A, they are taking about the best way to lose weight, then you can go to forum B and ask is X method the best way to lose 20 lbs. Just look for those threads that have a high post count and high view count. The second thing that you need to keep in mind is to be transparent in your approach. Other forum members want to know who you are and want to get to know you. One common complaint in forums is people want to take and not give, so then the obvious thing to do is be giving in your replies to people.
Last but not the least; don’t make the mistake of spamming the forums with your link because first of all, you’ll easily get banned by the forum moderators. It’s very easy, and common, for other members to report posts that are spamming, etc. Nobody likes a spammer who is forcing random links onto them, which is why you should avoid it all costs.
Forum marketing can be lucrative, if done right, and the thing to do is be patient and proceed slowly until you’re feeling confident.
