Today I want to share with you a method on how to drive insane amount of targeted traffic to your blog for free with forum marketing.
I had heard the term “forum marketing” mentioned quite a lot in the past but always dismissed it as some kind of bogus that would not return any immediate results. I’m still in the process of building my blog and gaining momentum and in the last weeks the results are “normal”. Most people will say that it can take 1-2 years of consistend blogging (3x week) to get any decent amount of traffic so I’m just following my plan of being consistent and not judging the results any time soon.
As you can see on the picture below I have not been receiving any substantial amount of traffic as NextStepFreedom.com only started in the beginning of this year. It was getting 1-5 unique visitors a day. But as you see as I just kept on blogging the number has slowly risen and in the middle of January it rose up to around 12 visitors.
Then on January 18th I decided to try a new approach. I had been sharing my blogposts on Twitter without any substantial response so I finally took the decision to give “forum marketing” the chance. Now how that works is that you sign up for a free membership in places like Warrior Forum or Digital Point. These are the biggest forums and discussion groups about internet marketing and how to make money online. It’s free to sign up so in case you are not then I highly recommend doing so today.
After you sign up you can edit your account details and profile and put in your “signature”. That’s were you want to put our blog or website so that when you comment people will see your face and your website. Now of course you want to be helpful and give value to the group by commenting on people’s threads and be active. People will start to appreciate it and check if you have more content and thus going to your website.
As you can see below the results where actually surprising to me as it jumped up to 70 visitors almost instantly the same day. I knew that Warrior Forum was a big forum but I realize that I have underestimated it’s power. Now I’m not saying that these are typical results but I encourage anyone to try this.:
- Setup an account on Warrior Forum or Digital Point.
- Set up your signature so it connects to a blog or website.
- Comment once per day.
- Try to be nice and helpful.
- Don’t spam or put your affiliate links.
You should see some results in a few days. Let me know in the comments below.
