Forum marketing can be quite profitable. However, the best way to make it profitable is by mixing in a little bit of fun in the process. This article is going to explain.
Forum participation can be a real tightrope walk. Why do I say that? Well, forums have their own set of rules and etiquette. Those who come into them like bulls in China shops don't usually last long. That's to say, if your only reason for going to a forum is to make a profit off of it, you're going to be found out and exiled to boot. You need to show a little restraint when joining a forum and participating for the first time. Great, so how do you do that?
Probably the best way is by having some fun. Come in with a lighthearted attitude. Maybe even tell a few jokes while you're there. Don't even talk about business or try to get attention to your sig file when you first arrive. You're the new kid in town. Trust me, nobody is going to be interested in your sig file as you haven't developed any kind of trust with the members. That's why you want to take it slow and easy.
That's not to say that if somebody has a question that you can answer that you don't answer. Be as helpful as you can to the new members. Heck, even some of the older members might have questions that you can help them with. Being new to a forum doesn't mean you're new to marketing. Some Internet marketers who have been marketing for years join a forum for the first time. Doesn't mean that they don't have a lot of valuable knowledge to share with others.
Bottom line...know your place. Respect the members who have been there longer. If you mind your manners and behave properly, you'll slowly earn their respect and before you know it, you'll become a respected member of the forum.
