Then we got industry. In each industry there will be communities or forums. Sometimes they’re official, sometimes they’re unofficial. But most industries have a centralized place where people hang out. So in the case of internet marketing, there are lots of affiliate forums where affiliates hang out and discuss different strategies and tactics.
Then of course there are bundled memberships like SuperFastResults comes with Traffic Grab. You’ve got a month’s access to SuperFastResults if it’s your first time there. Therefore, you know that most other people in SuperfastResults have come through an internet marketing product so they’re very qualified internet marketing people.
Read the Rules
It’s essential that you read the rules of forums. Forums are communities and most communities have rules and generally the rules will allow certain things and disallow other things. If you want to get booted from a forum simply just blunder in there and start posting away. It’s a sure fire way to get yourself some negative attention.
Have a very clear intent. Why are you joining the forum? For most people it is to hang out with a light minded community. For us as marketers we see it as a traffic opportunity so if you are strategic, if you are going there to build links or to build your customer list, you’ve got to have a plan. I’m going to give you some strategy in just a second but just consider this, if you’re in this for profit or return on investment, you don’t get caught up too much in just hanging around aimlessly doing post for no reason so be very clear in your strategy.
