This Week’s Social Media News

Social Media News for Online Marketing Success”

According to an article entitled, “Why Forums May Be the Most Powerful Social Media Channel for Brands,” forums are still very popular for asking and answering questions about products.

Forums are internet message boards or websites that provide an exchange of information about a particular subject between people online.

Here are some suggestions for how a business can participate on these message boards:

1. Be sure to follow guidelines on how to identify and market your business.

2. To prevent yourself from being banned, mirror the way that other members communicate.

3. If the administrator says something your said was too much like spam, apologize and don’t repeat the behavior.

4. Your main goal is to participate in existing discussions and add value.

5. Use your signature line to include your company name and a link to your website at the end of your post.

Forums are tools for building relationships and trust. You won’t be able to drive immediate traffic to your site from forums. Over time, this will result in people connecting with you.

See the link below in the social media news section of this post for more details about forums.
