You’re writing a blog and using social media to drive traffic but you can never have too many tried and true traffic generation secrets. Today we show you how to earn money online forum marketing.
Why is forum marketing online so important for affiliate marketers?
We started this journey to show you how to be a Top 3 Percent earning affiliate marketer and you can’t truly learn to be in that Affiliate 3 Percent if you have no experience with forums. I mean unless you have a ton of money you can’t skip forum marketing. I know, you are thinking that you have heard the power of blogs, and social media, and building a list but what is this about earn money online forum marketing? I’ve never heard of that before or is Forum Marketing Online Dead?
Fact is, you can still find forums either standalone or on major sites like the American Express OPEN Forum for Small Business. If, you are in the Make Money online industry such as affiliate marketing to other affiliates, MLM, and network marketing professionals or have been seeking training for any period on online marketing you may have landed on the Internet Marketing Forum or the biggest forum in our industry Warrior Forum and Marketing Checkpoint. Both of which I am a member and both of them are highly recommended being very active in. Another popular forum for affiliate marketers is JV News Watch which is a forum where new product launches are introduced to first in movers. This little forum is where those millionaire dreams begin coming true.
So you think you can Earn Money Online Forum Marketing?
The BBS gave birth to two things. The first is a dirty little beast called SPAM we get in all sorts of online digital communications. There will always be idiots and criminals and because of these early
Enter The Earn Money Online Forum Marketing Pioneers like Corey Rudl
These tips were not lost on me when I met Corey Rudl, who was a college drop out millionaire because he caught on to these kinds of tricks very early on. I met Corey on the forums at Adland Pro and got basically the kind of mentoring he was selling for $2500 a person for free because I guess he liked my story or my personality, who knows, he could have just been bored. But he gave me a great education in Internet Marketing with a strong focus on Forums, Blogs, and the buzz of Social Media things to come.
The Big Secret In Forums Knowing What People Want and how to tell them about it without being pitchy.
Thus, we started designing our forum signatures. Nearly every forum allows you to have a signature box with 1-3 links and some text or maybe even an image. The secret is to not use these things for a blatant advertisement but instead as a way to deliver a gift in exchange for the people reading your post joining your newsletter. Since we use our newsletters to promote our blogs and blog based product reviews you could turn one well written e-mail signature into hundreds of inbound links, thousands of new subscribers, and never once hit the SPAM Radar.
You just had to add real value to the forum, real value in your signature offer, and be active and responsive to the people in the forums so you would build a huge following and always be welcomed by the forum owners.
How does forum marketing online stack up to social media?
Social Media Groups are much of today’s modern forum, and the feeds are micro blogs, and your profile page is your signature box. With forums this is all one page. Everyone shares a feed, the forums are where the action is and people mingle and meet each other and BAM, your signature is up there for all to see.
Do forums generate a ton of website traffic?
You can’t earn money online forum marketing if you don’t have traffic. I just closed a failed advertising coop that I over thought and put too much into so nobody but me could understand it’s power. I had bells whistles, and a Coop that was a web’s first of online marketing but people just didn’t buy into my dream. Shit happens, I lose some bets and win many more because I am human. At the core
You Can Earn Money Online Forum Marketing if you stick with it and target your offers.
The last thing I want to elaborate on is that your offer needs to be related to your blog, and forum. A big forum like the one I mentioned from American Express is a great inbound link for a site on small business but it’s covering such a wide base of people and interest that you will find it hard to connect with buyer traffic targeting their 500,000+ member mega forum.
Instead, if you sell fishing gear on your Anglers blog, and have a Newsletter called The Catch, you would do much better on forums for fishing, or boating, camping, and outdoors survival. These forums will have smaller followings but they are people already interested in your content who can benefit from your gift and gladly join your e-mail list. Sell each of them just 1 lure a month off Amazon or Bass Pro Shops and you could easily turn them into $1-$20 a month in fresh income. Stay in your niche. If, you have a hankering for a different niche forum and product to make money off of you will need a blog in that niche and a free offer the people in it would love to generate the same money there but you can Earn Money Forum Marketing online.
