How to use Online Forums to get traffic and sales

I have received many questions from members how they can promote without having to have list, website, pay par click search engines etc.

Example of question:

Is this possible at all to promote your website and earn money if I just started out and have nothing more then internet browser and internet connection?

Answer to this question is… YES

Update to below article

Some forums do not allow affiliate link in signature but allow only your domain name.

In this case use any domain name you already have on register new (For example at

After that you can use it in 3 ways: make redirect on domain name (less recommended), make landing page with your affiliate link, make so called squeeze page with subscription for to catch address and after that redirect through affiliate link.

I described below how you can get free traffic. In short all you need is to add your affiliate link to your forum signature and follow advice below. Remember that this is much easier to giveaway something free than to sell something.

Many web users frequently involve themselves in at least one online forum. Online forums are a great way to connect with others on a more personal level. Some forums are very informal and involve discussion on everyday issues, while others are more informational.

If you are trying to find free ways to advertise your affiliate link, using online forums to promote website traffic is a great idea. There are several ways you can use online forums to promote affiliate link. You should carefully consider the various different approaches and how you want yourself to be viewed before using a forum as a means of advertising.

The easiest way you can use an online forum to promote your affiliate link, is by simply adding a link to promoted website in your forum “signature”. Many forums allow each member to create a “signature” that is added to the bottom of each of their posts.

If you include your affiliate link to something for free, it is likely that others you chat with in the forums will become more familiar with the website name and probably even check it out. This is one of the most reserved ways to promote affiliate link in online forums.

This is a great option for someone who does not want to be as pushy about the advertising aspect. You can be more natural with the ad delivery by using forums in this manner. You can even begin visiting forums that you usually don’t, just to get your “signature” out there more frequently across the web. Many blogs also allow comment sections where you can leave your affiliate link in your “signature”, so take advantage of these avenues as well.

You can also simply post advertisements into online forums. This is a more direct way of reaching those that read the forum. It is free indeed, however you need to be aware of a few things before using this approach.

First, some online forum moderators do not allow direct advertisements on their boards. They usually don’t do this to be mean or unreasonable; they do it to avoid the entire forum being filled with advertisements. It is possible that you may be able to sneak an advertisement in without being scolded, but it is better to follow the rules.

Another thing to consider when using direct advertisements in online forums is that the entire approach may seem a little pushy. Many people consider online forums as a place that is personal and free from annoying ads.

Therefore, they may not respond well to a direct advertisement as they may see it as being made by an intruder that is not part of the normal forum “family”. Being bold enough to go this route however will most definitely give your affiliate link more traffic, because some of the readers will be prompted to check out more information from your post.

When deciding to use online forums to promote affiliate link you need to consider what types of forums would be most appropriate for your posts. You can certainly use forums that you regularly comment within, even if they have nothing to do with your website.

People who are use to seeing your comments will likely respond warmly to your website just because they consider you familiar. In addition to your regular forums, consider searching for forums that have some sort of a link to the content on promoted website.

Overall, the more people you reach with your use of online forums to promote affiliate link, the more positive results you will see. Using forums are perfect for those on a tight budget who still want to promote their affiliate link.

Just be sure to consider forum rules and choose an appropriate approach before posting. You don’t want to ruin your promoted website’s reputation or even the reputation of yourself.

Using Forums to Generate Traffic

Using online forums is a good way to learn more about internet
marketing and to generate some long term, very targetted traffic.

If you have not participated in any online forums then I recommend
you make this part of your daily activity. Consistency is the key here,
and by logging in and answering some other members questions you
will begin to generate clicks to your website.

Forums are great places to expand your knowledge also. It is not all
about getting traffic as you will be picking up a lot of great tips along
the way.

The main purpose of this type of marketing is that you are allowed to
put in a signature file at the end of your comment.

This has multiple benefits,

1. Allows members to click through to your website and see your offer.

2. Builds up in coming links to your domain name. Over time this will allow
you to develop a website with your domain name and have a head start
to achieving a good page rank.

3. Forum posts are picked up by search engines
if they answer the question
the searcher asks. Creating a good post with an active response will lead
to long term hands off traffic.

4. If you are in our team you will be able to offer people a fr.e.e auto
responder so you can build your list.

5. Build your reputation by helping others by sharing your knowledge.

To get more information and to watch a video about using forums I
am giving you a link to one of the training pages attached to the
SUTeamBuilder system.

Have a great day and make sure you use forums to build your business

Achieve Your Goals Immediately

Some people may think that goals have a definite timeline to accomplish. In part, this is true, but there are certainly ways on how you can hasten the process. You can achieve more great things by focusing on the current job and getting it done, without any compromise. Here are some guidelines from the experts that you can use yourself.

Step One: Forming a Team

Things can be accomplished more quickly if you rely on other people and assign tasks accordingly. When forming a team, it is important that you choose individuals whom you can trust and are truly competent in the fields you assign them to. Teams need to be supervised to ensure that you get the results you want. You can also create a hierarchy or create pairs so that one can look out for the other, thereby saving you time when reviewing work.

Forming a team gives you the benefit of practicing your leadership skills. You will find that later on, you also get to finish tasks more quickly alone, since you've already created an effective system that will provide a smoother flow of various jobs. Make sure you also get the appropriate number of people for the job, or else you risk having too many to watch over, wasting precious time in the process.

Step Two: Finding Shortcuts

Some goals actually have shortcuts that you can use to reach more quickly. These are not quick fixes, but can help the entire system respond in a more conducive manner, thereby boosting the process. For example, there are no short cuts to permanent weight loss, but you can do some techniques that will hasten the fat loss. Some of the approaches include using HIIT or high intensity interval training, instead of the traditional cardiovascular exercise. HIIT is done only in 20 minutes tops, and burns more fat and raises your metabolism higher and for longer periods of time. Your body will respond to the exercise faster.

To know about the shortcuts, always stay updated with changes and developments in technology and professional programs. Stay connected in a network of people related to your goals. Joining forums and online seminars are ideal. You can also talk to experts, so you can compare processes and determine if a certain approach is truly effective.

Step Three: Extra Hours

Consistency, discipline and dedication always give you faster and better results. If you want to finish things faster, you may have to put in extra hours and work longer than the usual. The more important thing is that you keep stress levels down afterwards by relaxing and giving yourself enough time to rest. This way, you can move on to the next goals to be achieved. Overtime should also be well-planned. You cannot expect to work effectively beyond your usual time if you're still tired the night before or do not have enough equipment to work with.

Prepare and strategize by coming up with small objectives and actions steps to be done in sequence. Having information prior to your overtime can help greatly and save you lots of idle time. You may also ask someone to work with you during overtime to accomplish more. Try to incorporate all the three steps above and see for yourself how much more you can boost the process.

10 Ways to Make Money in Real Estate

There are 10 basic ways of making money in a real estate investment. If you are interested in pursuing a real estate investment opportunity, it is necessary that you get acquainted with these possibilities so that you can better evaluate your position.

1. Property Appreciation. You can simply buy real estate property and wait until the right buyer offer comes along with an offer that is profitable to you. To realize the highest possible property appreciation value, you should buy a property in an area that has a projected demand growth higher than the supply availability.

2. Property Depreciation. To maximize after-tax profits and benefit more from declaring a loss for depreciation, buy a property that has its primary assessed value in the buildings and structures because the value of land does not depreciate.

3. Equity. You normally increase your equity with every payment you make. In applying for a loan, make sure to get the lowest interest rate that you can so that a bigger amount of your monthly amortization go towards the amount of the principal.

4. Cash Flow. If you buy rental property the right way, you can have your tenants paying for all the operation and maintenance costs including the mortgage loan and still have enough left over to realize a positive cash flow.

5. Buy Low. Always buy below the market to get instant equity that can be converted into a profit when you sell (some people buy at 20 to 30% below market prices). Negotiation skills are the key to buy low as you have to convince the seller to sell lower than the market for any number of advantages like fast closing, cash payment, and assumption of some debts or liabilities.

6. Sell High. Get the property ready for the market, make it look good with basic cosmetic maintenance (paints, carpet replacements, etc) and easy to buy and find the right buyer to get the best offer.

7. Offer Financing Assistance. Sellers often get significantly more money for a property if they offer financing assistance. You can agree to the buyer to make a lower down payment so that you can get more proceeds from the loan package.

8. Change Use. You can convert the use of the property to make it worth more to the prospective buyer. This may mean turning condominium units into apartments or vice versa or a home into a commercial office space.

9. Repair and Renovate. Repair all that needs repairing or replacement and make improvements to raise the monetary value and visual appeal of the property.

10. Sell in Parts. If you have a tract of land or a relatively big lot area for a home, you may want to divide the land and sell off the excess land for a profit.

There are yet other creative ways to make money in real estate; the key is in not allowing yourself to be boxed in by your property holdings but in being creative in coming up with ideas on how to maximize and realize the money making potentials of your real estate investment.
