  2. 2. Web Site Marketing Strategies Website Marketing Strategies: Forum Marketing is Cheap Easy and it WorksThe other day a friend of mine asked me about some ideas for Cheapwebsite marketing strategies. Thereare thousands of ways to market yourself online many are” cheap” if you discount your actual time. Hereis an easy one for you and it could possibly result in direct clients. Forum Marketing.Forum marketing is an excellent way to market products and your services for free. But there are a fewtricks to marketing on forums without getting banned. You have to be careful not to do any blatantadvertising or you’ll probably get removed very quickly.The first thing you should do when you’re new to a forum is create an interesting profile. Add an avatarthat’s a picture of you, or a picture related to the niche.If you’re in the dog training niche, you might put a picture of a dog – preferably your own. In the golfniche, it could be a picture of your favorite golf pro. If you are a service provider one of you(professional works well ….not drunk after a Man U win ( come on you reds!!) You get the idea.Strong tip here always have an image. As if you are taking the time to comment then make sure it worksfor you.Next, start making posts that answer questions. You should never mention your website or product atthis point. Being a member of a forum, you’ll be there to give people helpful answers to their questionsand post an occasional thread of your own to spark a discussion or provide helpful tips. These are timetested website marketing strategies that work with consistent effort. 2 08452570073 email:
  3. 3. The point of this phase is to start establishing yourself as an expert in the niche. By giving peoplevaluable answers, you’ll be seen as the go-to person in your area of expertise. As forum members startto recognize your contributions, they’ll start looking for your posts, hanging on your every word!Check the rules of the forum to make sure they allow links in signatures. If they do, you can add a link toyour site. You might prefer to link to a squeeze page, so you can start building a list of forum visitorsthat you can market to later. Many forums require a certain posting level.Get to that as soon as possible and you can then add a sig nature file. This is a hyperlink back to yoursqueeze page website etc. Some forums require you to be a paying member to do this. The UK smallbusiness forum for example. You will need to weigh this up with your budget. It could be well worth it asit will add to your traffic generation.Don’t do anything to draw attention to your signature – such as continually telling people, “I have moreinformation on the site in my sig file.” Just keep posting as you have been, giving out helpfulinformation.After you’ve built up a good reputation at the forum, people may start searching for you on their own.Make sure the name you use on the forums is featured in the text of every project you promote, becauseyou need to make it easy for people to find your products if they start looking for them on Google.Respect the forum boundaries. Don’t private message people and ask them to check out your site unlessyou already have some sort of previous relationship with them. The only time you should ever drawspecial attention to a project of yours is if someone makes a post that specifically asks forrecommendations about products.For example, if someone asks, “Does anyone know of any good books that can help me get more clientleads” You could probably get away with posting, “Actually, I wrote a book about how to double yourleads in 7 days. If you’re interested, you can find the link in my sig.” If it’s an invitation to provide aproduct link, it’s probably okay – but otherwise, let the forum traffic funnel in on its own.So what next 3 08452570073 email:
