Free Web Promotion - Newsgroup And Forum Participation

One of my favorite online marketing vehicles is to participate in targeted newsgroups and forums on my subject.

Once you have a good web site with high quality content in place, you start visiting the newsgroups and forums regularly and then after you know your way around it, you should start answering questions and becoming an all around helpful individual.

You will be able to build up relationships in these newsgroups and forums, and build up your traffic at the same time without having to spend a penny.

You post answers to people's questions and actively take part in the conversations. By doing this, you can post your signature file with information about your site and product.

Do NOT Post Direct Ads in newsgroups or forums or you will be flamed. You should only use a short signature about some benefit you offer.

Get involved in the conversations, post honest and useful opinions, be consistent, and become a trusted information source, or at least an online friend to other members. Interestingly enough, people are so curious that they want to know who you are as long as you give something helpful.

Besides free and targeted traffic, there're also other benefits.

Firstly, you will get increased link popularity and hence search engine rankings. A forum is nothing but web pages where members can post messages. Many of the them are frequently spidered by search engines. Some of them even have pretty high search engine rankings since that's where people are gathering.

Secondly, you can learn more about your subject. There are many experts in all sorts of industries hanging out there. If you have a question, post it in an appropriate newsgroup or forum, you will get the answer within hours!

Newsgroup and forum are technically different. But you can use them the same way in practice.

A forum is a web site, or a section of a site, where you can go read and post messages via your web browser. It doesn't require any other software. There are thousands of forums out there. A good place where you can find a listing of forums available is Forum Directory.

Newsgroups are slightly more difficult. Normally you need to use newsgroup reading software to participate. Here's one, Free Agent, you can download it for free.

Pick out the newsgroups your ISP's newsgroup server supports and that are discussing your subjects and use Free Agent to subscribe to them.

Or, you can go to Google Groups to read and post messages via your web browser. You have to register as a Google user first. It's free.

And then participate!
