Today I would like to discuss about forum marketing which is a meeting place for open discussions about commercial products and services. To start with, we must first understand that a forum is a public meeting or assembly for open discussion. The communication system that we use for assemblage in today’s internet marketing arena can be very powerful once its proper usage is understood.

marketing your business on a forumTo fully comprehend how powerful a marketing forum can be we must also understand that marketing is the commercial processes involved in promoting, selling and distributing a product or service. Now that we understand the two individual words “forum” “marketing”, we can now get into more specific details on how to best use this type of communication system.

Many are mislead or mis-directed on how powerful a meeting place for open discussion can really be. If used properly, you should have no problems with the commercial market of the sales and distribution of your products or services.

If you are going to use a forum to market your products or services, or in other words your merchandise, then you must take part in that marketing community and participate and share with others. It really is this simple! There are too many that teach you should go by a forum and make a post to “look like” you are trying to participate, however the fact of the matter is that this is the wrong way to market.

Making those one line posts or using copy and paste from other sites are not going to get you any respect and most likely, on monitored forums will just end up getting you banned. There are far better ways for promoting, selling, and distributing your products and services.

The key is really quite simple – Participate and become involved in the open discussions with others. This means learn, share, and grow with other like minded individuals. If you know of a marketing strategy that works, something you actually tested yourself, then feel free to share it with others. If you have learned from another forum thread that discussed a step by step marketing plan, then comment on it and share your obtained results using that marketing method with others.

When you participate in the above mentioned fashions, you not only build relationships, but you also build trust and credibility and become known as a person with integrity and strength of character. You will be more successful in your marketing endeavors when others perceive you as a real caring person as opposed to a programmed robot partaking in less than trustworthy methods, or as a shark swimming the waters of forums and public meeting places only as a personal hunting ground.

I understand that by human nature we are lazy and desire shortcuts, but the truth is that there honestly aren’t any shortcuts that will be beneficial to you. If you want to build a business to make money online then you must work at that business to make it successful. Participating in an open assemblage is a great place to start!

Auto dealers in Dallas Texas are seeing an increase in used car sales from consumer bankruptcy. These consumers are the perfect targeted customers because they are ready to buy now! These BK Leads are the perfect candidate for direct bankruptcy mailing that offers special deals and financing. Studies show that consumers who have recently filed bankruptcy or are in the midst of a repossession caused from bankruptcy are some of the best leads for lenders and dealers.

Because there are already obvious financial barriers for consumers in the subprime market and interest rates are usually higher, you want to remove as many barriers as possible. Reducing down payments, not requiring a cosigner, or offering incentives: gas cards, free oil changes, or even new tires are all great ways to help consumers. Know what your competition is offering by visiting other dealerships and researching through the Internet.

There are many marketing strategies online that you can use to market your business. While some focus on social media marketing others spend their time on video marketing. Both of these are great marketing avenues to help build and grow your business.

When marketing online though it does require that you multi-task and you several marketing methods to promote your website business. While you can focus on 1 marketing method and maybe even drive some good targeted website traffic, it will limit your business in the long run.

This is why it is important to put several marketing methods into play when doing website promotion. Because web site promotion is a constant thing that must be done, many outsource some of the work so they can focus on the marketing tactics that they are skilled at.

I personally think we all make the mistake of not being focused on a wide variety of marketing though. It is natural human instinct to focus on the things that we are skilled at. The problem with this is other areas of marketing are being ignored that could be utilized to drive additional traffic and increase sales.

Now I am not saying that you should increase your work load or work more hours online. As stated above many do outsource some of the work and this is a very smart business decision for those that do. Hiring others that are skilled at something you are not will only help your online business grow.

There are many different sectors in marketing and I am sure everyone has seen marketing plans and ebooks for article marketing, video marketing, social media marketing, classified ads marketing, email marketing, and etc. All of these areas of marketing is a vital piece of the puzzle to have a successful long term business.

Forum marketing is even used by some although it is used completely wrong by many from what I have seen. Forum marketing can be very productive for your business if done the proper way. Utilizing forum marketing tips you can increase your websites awareness.

There is one aspect of marketing that I have not seen many take advantage of that will increase your marketing efforts and increase your website traffic. This is one of the most underused marketing strategies online, which is surprising considering how beneficial it is to any website business.

I have been online for well over 20 years and still till this day I am amazed at the amount of b.s. that goes around the internet marketing world. What is even more amazing though is how many people actually believe bogus claims. I am not making this post to change your mind or to tell you that you are wrong when you think domain age is a ranking factor.

Actually you can believe what you wish, after all it is your business. If you make money or not with your business does not hurt me one single bit. It only hurts you when you do not take the time to test things for yourself or listen to someone that has already tested and proven something.

The reason why these so called SEO experts spread these myths such as domain age is a ranking factor is because they normally have something to sell you. This may be junky software or the next greatest wordpress SEO plugin or even an ebook.

On the other hand, I have nothing to sell you and I am not pushing anything on you. The fact is domain age has nothing to do with rankings of your website. If it did then all someone would need to do is buy up a large block of aged domain names and dominate any niche.

Seriously use your head and think for yourself when dealing with these so called experts. While the age of a domain name has nothing to do with rankings, the length of time a domain is “INDEXED” in Google does have some weight on rankings. The exact weight it has nobody knows but Google, just having a domain indexed for a long period of time is not going to get you the rankings though.

You must have many of the other factors along with the indexed time. Factors such as quality content, proper on-page SEO, proper off-page SEO, social validation, and etc.

I hired someone to write me some high quality articles, and they are great. Now this have been submitted to the top article directories.

Can someone tell me what my next steps need to be to use this articles for traffic?

What I mean or plan to do is maybe make some video’s of them, or if someone can help me and explain how to make power point presentations that would also be great

Basically what I need is a few steps to follow with this articles, before placing another order, then rinse and repeat.

I hope you posted those articles on your own blog / site first. As for high quality many have a difference of opinion on what high quality is. Your articles should include proper spelling and grammar, semantically related words, and read at a proper grade level that corresponds to your niche, according the Flesch-Kincaid readability test.

You can take your articles and transform them into PDF and post them on scribd.com assuming they are NOT sales pitchy in any way. If you do not have a PDF creator you can always search download.com for a free a one.

You can take your articles and post the top half (a few paragraphs) to social media sites such as livejournal.com and multiply.com and other social media websites. Add a read more link and link to your article that is on your site / blog (using your keywords as the anchor text).

Videos I personally use Camtasia and I also use Keynote which is an iWork app for Macintosh computers. I am sure there is something similar to keynote on download.com that will work if you own windows.

This is just the basics, here you can find a full free article marketing plan which also explains exactly what the panda update is.

I hear a lot of Warriors discuss how they are reaching out to thousands of readers through article syndication. The technique seems pretty legit but i still had some doubts.

1) Sites like Ezine Articles have thousands of articles posted everyday. How does one get publishers to post our article on their site/blog?

2) Wouldn’t you rather let search engine visitors come to your site instead of being directed to EZA?

First of all your content does matter a great deal! 2nd do not mass submit to thousands of directories, bad idea!

All your content you want posted on your own site first and foremost. Do not give away your unique and fresh content to anybody. It is yours why not use it, post it on your own site / blog first.

After it is on your site / blog then you want to do some bookmarks, social posting, and pings to get that content seen by people and search engines. Do not syndicate just yet, wait a few days and make sure your content is indexed.

Then you want to go to social media sites such as livejournal and multiply (there are hundreds of these sites) and you want to post what I call half articles. The half article should include at least 1 link in the body and and a read more link leading back to the original on your site.

DO NOT CREATE HUNDREDS OF ACCOUNTS FOR THIS! Only create as many accounts as you can “manually” handle. Which means you should only create 5 – 10 social media accounts on multiply type sites. You want to handle these sites manually and participate in the sites. Every time you post on your site / blog this is the first place you post your half articles.

Once that is done run a few (not many) bookmarks on the social media accounts you created. You do not want to go over-board on bookmarking these sites as you want to build your site and not theirs.

Next on your list you want to make sure you create hubpages and/or squidoo lenses. Create an entire page based around 3 – 4 of your articles. DO NOT ADD ANY SALES PITCHES! Add informative content and engages users and attracts them to your blog / site. squidoo you can feed your rss feed into your lenses that you create. Again a few few bookmarks will not hurt here.

Now you want to locate some top bloggers that are “related” and you want to build a relationship with them. Many will disagree here and think you should just email people, which does work but I personally think it is more beneficial to build a relationship first.

Once you build a relationship with these top bloggers they will have no problem publishing your content any time you want. I know people that I can post on their blogs any time, all I need to do is send a email and say “hey let me post on your blog” and they allow me no questions asked.

This is because I built a relationship with them and they know I am not going to post junk garbage. Building a relationship with 5 or more people in your niche that have related products and services will go way further than any content junk filled article directory that has ads all over your articles!

This is just for starters as there is more to syndication but this should get you up and running. I personally syndicate on 300+ ad free websites.

A internet user ask:

what should be the minimum number of word for a article?

Is it 100, 200, 300,400?

Anything under 500 is considered a blog post and not an article. You should focus on writing articles that are very informative and reach at least 700 words. One reason why you would want longer articles is because you can re-purpose those articles easier for other uses.

For example an 900 word article gives me the ability to post that article on my site and then split the article into 3 mini articles. I can take these 3 mini articles and post 1 on multiply, 1 on livejournal, and 1 on jamespot. This way these social media sites have similar content but not the same.

I do this for readers and not some duplicate content myth.
