Traffic Building With Forums – Step By Step I

Forum advertising can be an effective form of driving traffic, although it does require some time – intensive work when you first get started with it.

So what is a forum?

A forum is an online interactive community where members can ask questions of each other, answer questions of each other, and provide help and resources to each other.

The list building/traffic element stems from the idea that generally if someone is using a forum, or even reading posts in the forum actively, they are somewhat interested in the topic, more so perhaps than a casual surfer or more general traffic. The forum user is specifically interested in the topic, and has enough interest to spend time setting up their forum account, and searching through the posts. This generally creates a more highly qualified visitor.

So how do you generate traffic via the forums?

Well, the basic premise is that in each of your forum posts you can generally include a link to your web site (or in your case, your squeeze page), or in some forums you can include a link to your web site or squeeze page in your forum signature.

Now, you cannot just simply jump into the forums and start posting your url all over the place – you will get banned from the forums for spamming. Plus, the forums are kind of like communities – or neighborhoods. The people in them tend to get to know each other, and they realize that some people have more expertise than others. If you just start blasting posts all over the place, no one will take you seriously, anyway.
