Online Forums are a great source of information. There are forums about almost every topic. They indicate new trends in the internet community. Furthermore they reflect the peopleís need and preferences. Forum web pages attract a lot of traffic.

How can forums be used to make money? There are two sides who can use them, the website owners and the opportunity seekers.

How can website owners use forums?

They are a great opportunity of a kind of free and efficient advertisement. Everybody can post an information. The information, however, may not be blatant advertisement. You may post hints, advice, solutions, background information about a certain topic. You can answer to the posts of others. You can add the name and URL of your website to the post.

There are forums of great search engines, e.g. Google or Yahoo. Bravenet also runs high traffic forums. There are topic related forums. If you run a website about home business, make money or get paid opportunities, then you use the business related forum sections of general internet service websites (e.g. Google) or you use forums of business opportunity related websites.

You have to register at this forums and to read the terms of services. It is recommendable to study some posts in order to get a feeling of the tendency in a certain forum before you compose and place your post. You will see that your website gets more visitors immediately.

Itís possible to find topic related forums with amazing high rankings, even Google Page Rank 7 or 8, and high traffic rankings according to Alexa.

A useful source for opportunity seekers

People who are looking for lucrative business opportunities, products or services, also can use forums. They can gather information and opinions about a topic of their interest. They can ask others avout their experiences with a certain money making opportunity or product.

Consumers and opportunity seekers can gather valuable information at forums. They, however, have to be aware: Forums can be manipulated. The owner of a website can post ficticious testimonials about his products. The merchant can use different email addresses and nicknames. Otherwise, a merchant can be attacked by an unfair competitor who uses false identities for unfavorable posts.

Conclusion

Internet Forums are a good matter and can help promoting a business as long as they are used with fairness and common sense.

This is so true. I am just now starting to understand the importance of forums. In fact, I have been trying to get a former company to use them,....not only for discussions, but for support too.

Impossible, the world is full of evil people with an internet connection, you can not stop them spreading their venom, the only thing you can do is to make sure that you are the best at what you do and that your products and services excel above and beyound your competitors. At the end of the day, people are not stupid, let the market be your real judge.

Having a precise business plan, a logical website design, and simple operations founded on solid ethics will naturally serve to elevate your positioning, be it in your industry, on the web, or amongst you peers.

Action speak louder than words, and since you should only believe a portion of what you read (or hear), maintaining a popular Forum is a small price to pay to provide a place for eagles to gather: "If you have the wingspan of an eagle, can see as *****ly as an eagle, and choose to fly as high as an eagle, then why hang with the turkeys?"

Nice one. Life presents us with options. Whatever we do with them is up to us. We sometimes learn from other's mistakes and if the learning is less powerful to show us the right way, we could commit mistakes ourselves. cyberspace is infinite space.

I would have to disagree when it comes to forums being a place to make money. The only type of website that can really benefit from marketing in forums, let alone get away with it, is directories. I see a lot of new directories announcing their launch in forums. I also use forums to find new directories to submit my website to.

Somehow this has not been overly abused yet by directories. I think this may be due to the fact that most people build informational websites and not directories.

I have to agree that forums are an EXCELLENT way of promoting yourself.

Forums do not only sing praise about your products/services (that is of course if they are good) but they also show your potential customers that you have NOTHING to hide. Just seeing that a website has a forum section can ease the doubt that many potential customers may have.

I fully agree with Brad and Eric, put more energy into your products/services rather than using your energy to attack a competitor.
