Online Forum Advertising

By Marcus Schroefel
Posted Friday, October 8, 2004

Posting messages on online forums is a great way to get free advertising. But you are not allowed to use them for blatant advertising you might say. That's right - but you still can if you do it smart. Here's how you do it:

When you post a message allways include your signature file at the end. Your signature file should be no more than 5 to 6 lines. Include an attention-getting sentence why people should visit your web site or e-mail your auto responder.

Some online forums allow you to leave text and graphic links at the end of your messages. You will get a better click-through rate with links than just a normal signature file.

Below are three types of messages you could post to online forums:

1. Informative Comments
Post information that would be informative to the people who participate on the forum. It could be an article or a study you've completed.

2. Ask Questions
Post a question on the forum you would like answered. This will give you a chance to meet other experts and it could lead to a profitable joint venture.

3. Answer Questions
Post the answer to another person's question on the discussion board. When you answer questions you will get known as an expert on the subject.

Before posting to any online forum read the FAQ or rules first. They will tell you what kinds of posts are allowed. Observe the forum for a few days before posting your message to see what type of messages are being posted. A great tool to make it easy watching up to 15 forums simultaniously can be downloaded for free at (

Always make sure to never post messages on a board that are unrelated to the subject. Good luck in your ventures!
