I want to show you a really cool, underused traffic strategy I’ve been using for the past few months to bring in over 100 subscribers to my email list. For some reason a lot of people don’t use this method; maybe it’s because they feel like they’ve seen it before, or that they’ve read it before and it’s not worth their time.
What’s this secret traffic strategy?
And in this tutorial, I will walk you through how to get traffic with forum marketing.
Forums are huge, huge, huge source of traffic.
It is one of the only traffic sources that is hyper-targeted to what your list, product, or website is all about. They’re filled with of a bunch of people interested in your niche or market.
I did an experiment a few weeks back to see how many new subscribers I could bring in, and how much traffic I could generate relying only on forum marketing.
In less than a week, I got hundreds of visitors to my website and got a ton of new subscribers onto my email list. This experiment only lasted a couple of days, but imagine if I were to stick with it. How many visitors do you think I could drive?
That’s the HUGE potential of forums and forum marketing!
How to Find Forums
Here’s how you find a forum related to your niche or market.
Go to Google and in the search box put your niche surrounded by double quotes a plus sign followed by the word forum. For example, if I was a fisherman, I might put in: “bass fishing” + forum
Search for that (change the keyword depending on your niche) and you should see a bunch of results of forums pop up. Open up a couple in a new tab to check them out.
Make sure the forum is active and has a thriving community. A forum with a lot of members but where nobodies posting anything isn’t worth our time.
Next, I would go through each forum that is active and register an account.
After you do that, it’s time to start posting and being involved with the community.
Go open up a bunch of threads from each forum, and post a valuable comment in them. If someone has a question, try to help them out. If someone is seeking advice, try to give them helpful advice.
Here’s the key…
How to Get Traffic With Forum Marketing
Make sure that you put a signature for your account. This is how you get traffic back to your website from the forums. Normally, your signature will appear below every post you make on the forum.
The more helpful you are, the more likely someone is to click your signature link and go visit your website.
Hopefully, you can see the power and pure potential of forum marketing.
Once I’m done with posting something of value on all posts on a forum, I go back to Google and repeat the process on the rest of the forums. Eventually, you’ll have a good idea which forums drive the most traffic for you.
