5 Things I Like About Discussion Forums

Aug 23, 2008
Discussion forums are one of those really great things that have come about thanks to the Internet. In this article let's take a look at five things I like about discussion forums as an Internet marketer and so will you!

1. These are a great place to get future business. You cannot specifically post ads in the discussions themselves, but you can hang out and brand your business in your personal profile as well as your signature file.

This is where you passively create a classified ad that people can go and look at their own leisure. The links should lead to a landing page or to your website or blog.

As you become a respected member of the forum your traffic will increase because people trust you as a known expert in your field. This takes a little bit of time to earn some trust, but the quality of visitors that you send your site from a discussion forum is simply outstanding.

2. Discussion forums are an excellent place to get knowledge of a particular topic for free. As you browse around for them in various categories you will see discussions taking place that are very interesting as well as informative.

If you don't see a topic where you're looking for an answer then go ahead and start one yourself. You will never run out of things that you can learn in discussion forums.

3. Some of the nicest and hardest working Internet marketers in the world hang out in discussion forums. This is an excellent place to make friends as well as potential joint venture partners.

Many joint ventures have been started out of the relationships built in discussion forums. This is a great way to increase your income and work with knowledgeable people who can help you get a project done on time.

4. If you are looking for ideas on ways to make money discussion forums can do that too. Many Internet marketers in discussion forums are part of great home business opportunities. This gives you the opportunity to join them and make money just like they are.

5. Another benefit from discussion forums is it is a great way to create back links to your website as search engine bait. You can hyperlink your primary key word in your signature file and create keyword relevant back links on the form posts themselves.

These are five things I like about discussion forums that anyone can benefit from. Perhaps you have others that you can add to this list!
