Forums

Forums are a very valuable tool, especially when you are new to the internet and marketing. I, fooli shly, put off joining forums for a long time. I have since realized how much information, advice and connecting with other marketers I was missing.

Just one bit of warning! Don't let forums consume too much of your time. Maintain some balance in using them, you have many other things that will need your time.

Forums and What They Can Do for You

  • Forums can be a great source of information, and can keep you in touch with what is new and happening on the internet.
  • On a good forum, no well intentioned question, is too foolish to ask. There will be folks with all levels of expertise who will be willing to answer your question.
  • Forums are a good place to get user reviews of software and marketing materials.
  • Forums are a good place to learn about things you've never heard of before that you may find useful.
  • Some forums can be a place to offer help, and post your signature file.
  • Forums are a great place to become acquainted with people you may joint venture with at a later time.
  • And, Forums are a place where you can be in touch with like-minded folks. This can be very helpful in the beginning if you don't have a business partner to talk to. Starting a homebased business can be lonely at times, and interacting in forums can help keep you motivated.

Forums and What You Should Know

 Do have the good sense to qualify and research what you see on forums. Not everyone is an expert.

Read the rules and guidelines so that you don't violate them.  In particular, not all forums allow you to post your sig file.  Blatantly advertising is frowned upon, except when there is a section provided just for that.

Treat the other members with courtesy. Yes, as in all other segments of life, now and then you will encounter a real jerk. Don't get in a dogfight! Politely agree to disagree.

Below are listed several forums for you to check out to see what is a good fit for you. These  cover different element of marketing on the internet. These forums will give you insight on marketing and dealing with the search engines, as well as insight into certain areas of marketing online.

Forums and Their Real Value as Research Tools

Forums can deliver all the benefits listed above, but the real value of forums is as a research tool. When you are trying to develop internet businesses and zero in on a market that will be a profitable online business, you can get real value from forums in terms of research.

Forums can really be of help in helping you find niches that have the potential to be profitable. While forums centered on internet marketing can provide information and keep you in touch with what is going on in the field of marketing and seo, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

There are many forums that center on pets of all kinds, hobbies and sports, and whatever activities people find an interest in. By doing a search you can find a forum on almost any topic you can think of. If you have a topic in mind for a niche business, find a few forums that focus on your topic and pay them a visit. People who are passionate about your selected topic spend time in these forums discussing their interest and will reveal a lot of useful information.

This could be a potential target market, and visiting these forums will put you in touch with the needs and concerns of this market. What are their problems? What are their needs? This could give you a lot of insight about a potential market and whether or not you could provide either a product or service to address their needs and make it profitable. By combining forums with keyword research you can find out a lot about a potential market.
