In this blog post I am going to teach you about forum marketing, what to say in forums to improve seo and how to know what to talk about while participating there – without sounding silly.

Forum marketing is a great way to make friends and improve your SEO at the same time. It is also a good way to increase your knowledge of  the topic, and help other folks out as well. Imparting your knowledge to them.

Sometimes a new member of a forum may be overwhelmed with all the conversations that are happening. If you are beginning a forum marketing campaign as part of your overall SEO for your website and you are not familiar with the topic, then you may be a little overwhelmed too.

Not to worry, like they say – just jump in feet first and get wet. By that, I mean you should just start reading the conversations and gather information from them. At first, you can just read through. If you don’t think you know enough to even ask a question, then keep reading more conversations. Eventually you will gain enough knowledge to join the conversation and eventually answer some questions.

Start out by posting a question and see what people reply to you. You may be surprised that others are just as interested in knowing your question as you are. As questions about the 5 best things about your topic, or how to do something related to your topic.

Perhaps you are in a softball forum and don’t know the rules of the game. You could start a thread asking “What are the main rules of softball?”. Or you could ask about what size ball they use. Is it the same for boys as it is for girls, etc.

Maybe you need to know what kind of equipment you need to start playing. Eventually, you will gain enough knowledge from the answers to your questions to start answering other folks questions. You could even just join in on conversations putting in your concern or opinions.

One thing you want to keep in mind is not to be too aggressive. By that I mean don’t be posting too much. Only spend 10-15 minutes at a time in one forum. You can jump around from topic to topic, ask or answer a question in each topic, then move on to another forum and do the same.

You don’t want to appear to be a forum fly, one that spends all day long chatting in that forum. IT can come off as spamming, and that is something you definitely want to avoid.

Another way to gain some knowledge quickly is to just do some research on the topic, do an internet search, buy a book on the subject, maybe read a magazine. You’d be surprised how many folks in those forums are not as informed or educated as they think they are. It won’t take long for you to become an expert on your topic.

Just jump in with both feet, get started today. Procrastination is what causes most internet marketers to fail. You can be a success if you just stay focused and consistent. Use your knowledge of forum marketing to make it a profitable part of your information marketing business.
