Your first task is to find a forum that is not only relevant to your particular niche but is also useful in two ways. First of all it should have a good number of active members who post regularly and answer other posts. In other words it should be a strong community of like- minded souls. Secondly it needs to be useful in driving traffic to your website.

Once you’ve spent some time here you will know what to do to make money and how you should behave on the forum and what pitches are allowed and so on.

In many ways forum marketing is the oldest form of social media marketing on the internet. The Warrior Forum on its site boasts it has been the number one internet marketing forum since 1997. This means it has credibility and a very large membership base. In one sense, of course, it is very much old school but used correctly forum marketing can still be highly effective.

If you decide to become active in a number of forums then use the Alexa tool bar to see how high in the page rankings your chosen forum is. If it is running into the millions then I wouldn’t use it as it probably won’t be very popular. Remember your time is precious and you want to reach the maximum number of people in your niche as possible.

You can use forums to:
·         Create backlinks to your own website.
·         Link directly to an affiliate link but
·         I wouldn’t do that but use a squeeze page to capture email addresses.
·         Give away something of value to attract subscribers to your list.
·         You can even create a forum on your own site to increase time spent on your site and to enable potential customers to interact with your content.

There are many advantages to having your own forum. First of all it allows your visitors to communicate with one another. This then helps to build relationships and makes it more likely than not that visitors will return again and again to your site. This then increases the chances of them becoming customers.

To create a forum is relatively easy these days. Word press have a plug-in to use and your hosting should include cPanel to enable you to control and manage comments and posts.

To make sure your forum is a success please do a proper pre-launch and then launch as outlined in the previous section, Product Launch.

You could also be creative and make a contentious comment about some news item, perhaps something where you go against the tide of public opinion. But be careful, don’t be too contentious. Your aim here is to produce a lively, animated discussion board where members of the forum can engage with each other.

You must maintain your forum so that potential customers keep coming back. You could even ask them what they think about your internet business. Ask what would improve it. The name of the game for all savvy entrepreneurs is to give customers what they want not what you think they want.

You can also, of course, use your forum to promote any new product you have coming to market. Use the forum as I have outlined in the previous section, Product Launch. That means giving members something of value that they can use now. You need to warm them up so they are waiting eagerly to buy your product immediately it is available. Don’t forget the idea of asking for a testimonial from early buyers. If you get a quotation you can use tell them they will get the full cost of the product refunded.

If you can run a successful forum where your subscribers keep coming back daily to check out your forum, and therefore your site, you will be well on the way to building up a highly successful internet business.
