How to use Online Forums to get traffic and sales

I have received many questions from members how they can promote ResellRightsPack.com 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 xodoweb.com).

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.
