Why Forum Posting Does Not Make You Money

Posted on June 14th, 2007 in Advice, Customers, Strategies | No Comments »

I posted this over on the Warrior Forum earlier today. I thought that
IMsimple├é┬áreaders would benefit from this, so I’m posting it here. Enjoy!

— — — — —

Here’s something I want to clear up right now. I’ve seen some people
outside this forum complain that posting on forums is a waste of
time. I have some comments about this…

Forum posting is a waste of time and energy if you first and foremost
aren’t trying to help other people. The more you give, the more you
get. It really is true. Watch the top marketers. They really do give
a lot, and they reap the rewards. If you take, take, take, then
you’ll end up with very little.

If your signature is weak, of course you won’t make any money. Does
your sig match the intention of the forum? For example, are you
advertising or promoting dog beds on a cat lovers forum? You might
laugh at this, but I’ve seen these kinds of poorly crafted
signatures on many forums, including the Warrior Forum.

Is your signature offering something people actually want. And, do
you offer a call to action? Is it hot and spicy? Similarly, is your
signature too obnoxious? I’ve seen signatures that are nothing but
bright colors, bold text, and blather. Sometimes less is more.

What I find is that nearly every time I post something with substance
I learn something new from someone else. Furthermore, I definitely
see a boost in sales for products posted in my signature. Sometimes
it is only 1-2 sales, but other times it is much higher. A simple
post where I give tips and hints can easily generate $50-100. I’m
sure many other people will confirm this.

In short, if forum posting isn’t making you money then think about
what you’re doing, make a plan to change for the better, and take
action. Help people first. Fix your signature if it’s broken.

That’s the magic.

Simple Traffic Generation Secrets Questions Answered

Posted on June 6th, 2007 in Reports, Simple, Strategies, Web Traffic | 1 Comment »

I was asked these questions in the Warrior Forum about Simple Traffic Generation Secrets. I thought there might be more folks interested in the same questions, so we’ve posted them here. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact us:

>> “Can you please tell me, would you say the ideas in the book are new or unique?”
Some of them might be new and unique to you, but in all honesty, there’s no real “magic formula” to getting traffic. I would define the report more as a case study as for what has worked for us, what hasn’t, and how long it took (a few months).

>> “Have you been using them on your IMsimple site? If so, for how long?”
You bet. We’ve been applying our ideas to the site ever since the beginning (which was early February) and we’ve seen great results. We link to all of our products from the home page so we receive several unique visits to those every day, and the blog itself currently has an Alexa rank of 209,101. Not too shabby, I’d say!

>> “Do you guarantee it will work for any one who applies the instruction?”
Anyone who says they can guarantee something completely is full of it. There’s always a chance of that major shakeup that completely changes the way your websites are found. With that said though…

If you are willing to put in the effort over a period of time to drive traffic to a single site, you’ll see results. The report is a great plan and a great guide to follow – but only if you intend on focusing on it. It’s totally up to you, what you focus on and promote. You can’t try these methods for two weeks and say ah bull, this doesn’t work.

All the best,
Matt Rhodes
