Forums for Fun and Profit

Posting on forums is a great way to make money. Although it is possible to use Search Engine Optimization and Pay Per Click advertising to reach the same audience, forum posting is much cheaper - free, and more fun.

Most entrepreneurs are well versed in the tactics needed to market their products on-line, but getting the initial rush of traffic to their sites is always a problem. Without traffic, it is difficult, well actually impossible, to do split testing, gather feedback and pick up the necessary testimonials.

Posting for Traffic

A great way to get traffic to your site is to post on forums. And you don't have to pay a cent to do it! By posting carefully, you can attract quality visitors to your sites, or your affiliate sites. And you don't even have to search for them, they will come to you.

Eager Buyers

Regardless of your niche, you should be able to find popular forums pre-loaded with truckloads of eager buyers. The folks are visiting the forum because they are passionate about the topic. That means that they are already inclined to buy your product. You just need to convince them to buy from you. Unfortunately, you cannot make an overt sales pitch on most forums. Some forums do have a special place to make offers to the members of the forum, but this is not usually the best way to get people to buy from you.
