Online Discussion Board Advertising

Posting messages on online discussion boards is a great way to
get free advertising. When you post a message include your
signature file at the end. Your signature file should be no more
than 5 to 6 lines. Include an attention-getting sentence why
they should visit your web site or e-mail your auto responder.

Some online discussion boards allow you to leave text and
graphic links at the end of your messages. You will get a better
click-through rate with links than just a normal signature file.

Below are three types of messages you could post to online
discussion boards:

1. Informative Comments
Post information that would be informative to the people who
participate on the discussion board. It could be an article or a
study you've completed.

2. Ask Questions
Post a question on the discussion board you would like answered.
This will give you a chance to meet other experts and it could
lead to a profitable joint venture.

3. Answer Questions
Post the answer to another person's question on the discussion
board. When you answer questions you will get known as an
expert on the subject.

Before posting to any online discussion board read the FAQ or
rules first. They will tell you what kinds of posts are allowed.
Read the board for a few days before posting your message to
see what type of messages are being posted. Never post
messages on a board that are unrelated to the subject.
