Conversions and Forum Marketing Fun
Today’s post has to do with failed conversions and the awesomeness of forum marketing. I’ve been promoting a product for a while, but for some unknown reason, my review page hadn’t been converting at all — even though the traffic was targeted and the product itself is a quality one. The product creator is well-known and has a reputation for putting out good stuff. This is odd for me because my conversion rates and earnings per sale tend to be way above average. So, yesterday morning (in the early a.m. – I’m a night owl), I decided to make a change.
Since search traffic hadn’t been converting like I like, I decided to try forum marketing on a forum that I’ve been a member of for a while (the Warrior Forum – http://www.warriorforum.com/). It’s the most popular forum for internet marketing and free to sign up for — although there is one-time paid membership that I don’t bother with. I decided to promote the product in my signature file by linking to my review (direct-linking not allowed) — making sure to highlight one of the benefits of the program as my anchor text (the words people see).
Guess what happened? In a few hours, I had made my first sale promoting said product! Adding the link to my signature file allowed me to make a cool $134.97 USD with a rebill of nearly $100 USD — just by interacting within a forum I use on a regular basis, anyway! I’m going to be doing a lot more of this! Forum marketing is a great way to get free traffic (and make sales) that even a total newbie can use. The key is to add value to the conversation. When doing form marketing, you need to make sure that your blog is relevant to the forum in which you are posting. Click the link below so you can start seeing these results for yourself…
