Self Promotion Tips - Online Forums

By Mike Merz
Posted Monday, October 18, 2004

Gaining exposure and establishing credibility should be a top priority if you intend on being successful Online.

Writing and submitting articles is arguably the most effective free way to achieve the aforementioned, but there is another proven self promotion method that is often overlooked ...

Regular Online forum interaction.

Discussion forums, bulletin boards, Online communities, group chat, etc., in other words, a group of individuals with a common interest that share an interactive environment.

Every niche market has one or more of these high exposure, hot beds of interactivity available to them, and the numbers continue to increase.

Reputable forums do NOT tolerate outright promotion, allowing (in most cases) only a signature file as identification.

This is actually a key benefit, as it helps maintain a controlled environment, setting the stage for positive, content rich interaction.

Once you've established yourself through regular postings, the level of trust, credibility, acknowledgement, and exposure you achieve will increase, commensurate to how well you're received by your fellow members.

Here is a list of Internet Marketing forums that I frequent:

Anthony Blake Online - Entrepreneurial Success Forum (

Bryan Hall's Success Network Forums (

Neil Shearing's Internet Success Forum (member's only) (

Jim Daniel's BizWeb 2000 BB (

Klaus Dahl's Forum

Lesley Fountain's Friends In Business BB (

Home Business Websites Forum (

Michael Green's How To Corp Forum (

Jan Tallent-Dandridge's Newbies911 Forum (

Diane Hughes' ProBizTips Forum (

Merle's MC Promotions Forum (

Seeds Of Wisdom Forum

Allen Says' Warrior Forum (

Willie Crawford's Marketing Forum (

Terry Dean's Netbreakthroughs Forum (members only) (

To find an Online interactive community that targets your niche ...


If you're interested in launching your own discussion forum, I highly recommend
Michael Green's brand new release "How To Start A Forum" < ( >.

So give yourself, and your potential Online success, a boost ... and get interactive!
