Default Do You Do "FORUM" MARKETING?

Hey everybody,

I have heard there are some online marketers that use forums

as a sole method of getting traffic to their website. I would like to know, ARE

YOU ONE OF THEM? I would like to know because knowledge of others'

personal experiences will benefit all of us here. It would benefit us all. If you

are, then please share your experiences!

Anyone on this site can be classified as a forum marketer. However, if that is the sole goal of your presence, it will be obvious and can ultimately backfire. Forum Marketing is just a tool to build credibility and network with professionals while adding to my ever-growing arsenal of knowledge. Traffic is a wonderful side effect

I would say you definitely want to check out forums that relate to your company's industry. However, I believe focusing ONLY on forums is a recipe for disaster for most companies.

Yes I use forums but just as part of my internet marketing activity. It fits with getting links etc and expanding my position within my niche. But again its about having an arsenel of marketing tools to use in my book

Yes using forums to marketing is really good to promote your business and build backlinks. But the success of it is still depends on the quality of your post.

It shouldn't be your sole option, but I've come to understand that forum posting is a must of any Internet marketing strategy.

i agree with you. first i go to forums just want to post my ads to attract more people to my shoppingkool.com, but then i found it more interesting to put yourself into the things you are really talking about in the forum, then you can enjoy your forum time and make traffic too.
