HOME BUSINESS TIP
I've noticed a lot of women posting advertisements on forums to promote their businesses. While forums can be a good source of traffic and leads - they can also be a true networking opportunity.
When you are posting on forums you may want to consider the following to make the best use of the opportunity.
1. Read the forum rules and abide by them. Many forum owners give you specific places to place ads. Don't spam the conversation threads with blatant ads for your business. That's just bad etiquette.
2. Join conversations. If you really want people to trust you and your business opportunity... get to know them! You are going to find that people are much more likely to sign up under you if they get to know you.
3. Give some good information. We all see zillions of the same ads. What we don't see much of is posts on when someone joined a certain business opportunity. What are the challenges you've overcome? How much are you earning and what are your goals? Posts with more information are going to get a lot more attention.
