Forum Posting Secrets for Home Business

Visitors: 451

We're all aware that having an eye-catching signature (sig for short) at the bottom of your forum posts can generate targeted traffic to your home business website.

This is because the folks at the forums are already a targeted audience of people who are interested in the topic. Your sig is all it takes to get them to your site, then if your site is doing its job some of them will join your mailing list so you can then work with them over a period of time via your email message series.

Or that's the plan.

It can all go wrong if you post the wrong kind of things at the forum. So here are some guidelines to help get you thinking in the right direction.


1. Simple notes of thanks.

Example: “Thanks for your post. I hadn't thought of that before. I will use it at my site. "

2. Questions.

These can either be where you are asking a poster (or the forum in general) for more details about something that they wrote.

Or it could be a minor detail you're wondering about. Example: “I see people talking about FTP. What's that please?"

Or you can kick off a brand new thread by asking a question. If it's a topic of wider interest, the new thread can become quite active for a while.

3. Answers.

This is where you share your expertise with people. The quality of your posts will help people decide whether to follow through to your site.

4. Links to other helpful resources, quotes or facts.

Example: “You were talking about copyright law. There is a detailed discussion about the difference between copyright and trademarks at [link]. "

5. Controversial responses.

Explain why you disagree with the prevailing view. If you've got facts to back up your position, what you say can garner you considerable respect.

6. Trivia.

Example: “I see you're from Colorado. I was there last spring. Loved it. "

Finally, a suggestion. . .
