Forums and Marketing Through Private Messaging

By Scott Lindsay
From a marketing standpoint the use of personal messaging through a forum board can provide a positive return for a personal investment.

Many forums are well populated and provide a perfect opportunity for individuals to express various points of view and entertain input from members that can be located anywhere on the planet. Forums are just one example of a shrinking world.

The personal messaging feature in forums is primarily reserved for members. The reason I bring this up is that some people will visit a web-based forum and browse the site. These individuals may even be able to post in some instances as a guest, but these users will not be able to access the same benefits members do. In the case of this article that means they can't send or receive private messages.

Sometimes a forum member will have a question that you can help them with. You could post the information in the primary forum section OR you could click on their profile and send a private message with a personal note that speaks to the individual nature of your answer along with the expertise behind it.

This type of response should not be hard sell marketing; rather this should be designed for relationship building. If the member perceives you are simply responding in an effort to get them to buy something they may have the ability to either report you or block any future private messages.

If you can personally address real problems the recipient may come to value your expertise and willingness to pass it along.

There is an individual in my circle of acquaintance who has used this concept to great effect. He routinely receives private messages from individuals on the forums he participates in. He is recognized as an authority in his field and others will come to him for advice or instructions on how to tap into the potential the sender may have to find similar success.

In some ways this gentleman has developed a type of mentorship program via forums. That being said his willingness to help has also resulted in numerous personal requests to access his skills for pay.

He indicates his investment in time has resulted in great friendships and multiple clients.

Many people approach forum boards as a means of passing along their contact information in the signature line and hoping that will be enough. However, if you refuse to engage yourself in the forum community your signature line link has very little marketing value. If you refuse to let people get to know you while you work at getting to know them you are not really a part of the online forum community.

Forums can be a great place to give and receive information. They can also be a great place to develop friendships and nurture an environment where these new friends can also feel comfortable becoming clients.

Yes it does mean you need to spend some time with these forums, but the end result allows you to market your products, services and skills in a very personal way.

Are You Killing Your Online Business?

By Zach Harris
It is a strange title but it's important that you understand the things that can kill your online business. Well I'm sure none of us is crazy enough to kill our own online business but sometime it happen without you realizing it. You kill your business before they really get it off the ground.

With everything gone online, many people took to designing websites and advertising online and doing the whole "e thing".

Do you know that your web site can MAKE or BREAK your business.

Here are a few ways you can do to instantly kill your business. Try not to do this if you love your online business and want it to go on for as long as you can.

1) Have your site hosted on a 'freebie' host (ie: geocities, Yahoo, angelfire, etc.)- If you won't spend $7/month on hosting on a real server that just doesn't look good to potential customers. It makes it look 'too cheap' to really invest in your business.

Even if you have registered your OWN domain and still have it forward to a 'freebie' site people still know it's a freebie site. If you have your forwarding url 'masked' so they don't physically 'see' it's a freebie site, with all the ads and pop ups and error messages, people still know it's not being hosted on a paid server and lose interest. i use Million Hosting for all my hosted sites.

2) Have too many pop ups on your site. That'll kill you business instantly.

Tell me if you enjoy looking at pop ups? Research too has shown that the majority of people either block them or close them out BEFORE they even look at them) Hosting on a free host will give you millions of pop ups if you like it.

3) Have your site on Yahoo or geocities with the 'Yahoo ad' that takes up a large section of your right hand side of your site. People want to SEE your site, not what geocities or yahoo has to offer, but what YOU have to offer.

4) Have a site with 'error' messages on it... that shows that you're not interested in fixing whatever html, script, or code error there is on your site, which potential clients equate to "you don't care enough about your customers or your products." So, test your site frequently and fix any errors immediately.

5) Have a site that's loaded with animated graphics that will slow down even the best computers. If it is slow to load, people will just close the browser and go somewhere else.

6) Have a site that does NOT contain your contact information.

People want to ensure your biz is 'legit' even if they never talk to you, it'd be nice for them to have a means to do so to ensure they COULD contact you if they need to.

7) Don't answer emails for days and days on end and keep the customer waiting. Answer all your emails within 24 hours. Would you like to sit and hold on the phone or stand in lines for days waiting a sales person or customer representative to get back to you?

These are kind of basic but sometime we just forget.

Common Technical Questions

I've keep getting a page that says
"Error In Application" am I doing something wrong?

If you encounter the screen that informs you of an "Error in Application ____" there is no need to be alarmed.  The reason you are seeing this screen is that our programmers work "Live" on the website and make changes throughout each business day to provide new functionality, correct errors, and perform maintenance on the system.  This is usually a short-term delay and doesn't last more than a few hours from the time you encounter the message.

What to do if the message persists:
If the message persists, please inform us of the page you were trying to access, the activity you were trying to perform, and the time of the message.  This will aid us in pinpointing the problem and speed up the process of correcting it. 

If you have any questions regarding email notifications or if we can help in anyway please contact us.
