Forum Power

by Martha Giffen

Have you joined a forum related to your business yet?

If not, you should.

Here are my Top Five Reasons to head off to the forums:

First, forums can help you side-step mistakes before you make them.  You will learn what others have done that works and what some have done that doesn’t.  The advice of someone further up the food chain is always good!

Secondly,  I have found alot of support in the forums.  You know, sometimes, you just want to get reassurance from others in the business that you are going in the right direction.  That your ideas are good and that you should keep moving forward.  The forum members are usually great at encouraging their fellow members.

Third, forums are great places to get new ideas.  Either for new products or quicker and easier business strategies.

Fourth, forums are social.  That means plenty of people usually show up.  Always be on the look-out for others who share your vision.  Joint venture opportunities have been known to grow from conversations started in a forum!

Last, (and this could be your most important tip), forums serve as an opportunity to promote your own products.  There is usually a section for this.  Always take advantage of any place you can talk about your new product!

A few internet marketing forums that I like are:, Warrior Forum, and

Look around the web.  You may find some others that are specific to your niche.

Take the time necessary to spend in the forums.  You may find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had!
