9 Steps Towards Successful Forum Marketing
« on: 04-07-2011, 21:16:19 »
1) Find The Right Forums

Find forums with a similar niche. Every time you post or create new threads you will expose your backlinks to people of the same interest. Not only is this good to directly promote your product or service, you will gain relevant backlinks. Relevant backlinks are important for SEO! Besides SEO, driving traffic from relevant niche forums means highly targeted traffic.

2) Think “Long Term”

Creating an effective forum presence takes time. Although you may have the ability to gain tons and tons of high quality traffic, it may take some time. Join conversations and help others to create a valid contribution! The more value you put into each and every post, the more you will build authority and trust. When first starting out forum marketing, make sure you build credibility for yourself, for others, and forum administrators. The last thing you want to do is get banned.

3) Forum Rules And Guidelines

It is important to be familiar with forum rules and guidelines. Each forum is different and may have different policies when it comes to forum marketing. Take the following for example:

a) are affiliate products allowed in signature links?
b) can I have a signature link to another forum?
c) can I promote my own business in my signature links?
d) are new users restricted from certain capabilities; signatures, profile pics, etc.

4) Username And Avatar

Choose a professional username. This will tell people that how serious you are about your business. Make sure you upload an avatar so you can start to build credibility and authority over others. These two aspects of forum marketing is essential to create a successful presence.

5) Introduce Yourself

It is best to introduce yourself at a new forum. In my experience, many regular users or administrators strongly urge this act.

6) Don’t Be Hasty

Make sure you create a good first impression at all costs. Newbie forum members can be easily resented by other “older” members if disobeying rules.

7) Valuable Contribution

Think of every post you make on a forum, whether a comment or thread, a way of building your authority, recognition, and expertise. This one aspect of forum marketing is very important and will determine your success in the long run!

8) Market Your Website

Add your website in your signature link. I recommend you create a narrow niche website for many reasons. It is very easy to build authority when you have a whole website dedicated to one narrow niche. Your signature link will appear with each forum post you make, which is great for not only direct traffic but SEO.

9) Avoid Negativity

Do not run into any negative arguments or thoughts. If you want to run a professional forum marketing business you have to be profressional yourself. Create a positive atmosphere at all times and you will quickly gain credibility and respect.

10) Track Marketing Efforts

Create a progress chart/traffic chart for how many visitors are gained from each forum. This will give an estimate of progress and the potential high quality traffic that forum can bring each month to your website! Some form of progress will provide information on whether a successful forum marketing campaign is being build or not.

my husband kidnapped my babies
« Reply #2 on: 09-18-2011, 14:47:49 »
Im exhausted trying to do this on my own. I need other moms to talk to. Everyday is a struggle for me. I havent seen my two younger babies since dec 3rd. and have only been allowed to talk to them 1 time in jan. I don't even know if there ok.                   
This is my story, i fell in love with a marine. shortly after I found out we were expecting. Little did I know that this man I was having children with was a con man. He was unfaithful from the beginning but I didn't want to believe it. After our 2nd child together things really began to change he got worse when it came to other females. Began treating our daughter like a step child and focused on our son.                   
In Nov 2009 he got military orders to Cherry pt, NC. I was relieved. I thought for the 1st time I can emotionally get back on my feet and face the demon he was. Little did I know that once he left he was gonna completely forget about me and our children. Left me with no water months upon months and power. giving me 160 dollars a month to feed 3 children. The stresses of this finally had gotten to me. After a 6 month battle with his command with no help I thought to myself maybe my kids were better off without me, seeing I couldn't provide for them in the way they deserved. I brought my children next door and went back home and took a knife to my wrist, as I slid it across my childrens faces rushed before me, the goofy times we had I relived in a sec. I regretted what I had done. But this was the ticket that allowed him to remove the children from my care. I was admitted into a 72 psych hold but quickly released that day told I DID NOT belong there. I returned home and my kids were with my neighbor whom had contacted my husband and of course he quickly came to Ca to get them. I couldn't even tell them good bye.                   
Ive spoke to law enforcement, lawyers what he did was legal. The police said my house was not safe for them because I had no water or power for them, which apparently was MY fault. His command refuses to get involved told me that the state of Ca took my rights from me, and they have this form. However I never received this form. In fact I was told that I could see them and talk to them, but once they were in their fathers care it would have to go to family law. Which I don't have the money for the "retainer" and money is so tight for everyone its hard to find one who will help for free.                 
And as the time goes by, he isnt allowing my children to speak to their own sister, or anyone from my family. He has completely removed me from their lives. My oldest daughter talked to them April 5th and my two little ones think I don't want them and dont love them. ( which breaks my heart ) what kind of heartless monster tells an innocent child that?                   
So at this point, I don't know what to do. I know that this past mother's day was the 1st mothers day in 10 yrs I was utterly alone. I don't know what to do, im literally fighting the devil.... any advice would be great. Thanks for reading this....                   
The reason I don't have my oldest is because my 1st husband served me custody papers with the wrong date on it, and I was out of state for the holidays and couldn't afford to go back to ca for the court date so he of course won by default.                   
Was I not meant to be a mom??
