NonStop Blog Traffic Lesson Seven

Mingling With and Listening In On Ultra Targeted Buyer Traffic Using Forums

Did you ever see the movie “What Women Want” starring Mel Gibson?

Mel Gibson plays the role of an advertising executive who unexpectedly gets electrocuted while trying to figure out a marketing angle for a new feminine product and is given the ability to hear the thoughts of women around him.

With this new found ability he suddenly realizes that he has the power to give women exactly what they want in addition to hearing exactly what they think about him.

Imagine having the ability to do that with the traffic you get to your blog.

After all one of the best ways to create engaging content is to know exactly what it is that the people in your market are interested in and… talk about it with them.

Forum marketing is an incredibly powerful way to achieve similar results.

There are forums for just about every topic imaginable all over the internet.

To find a forum for your target market simply enter (yourniche+forum) in the search engines and you’ll instantly be given a list of the available forums full of ultra targeted buyers that you can listen in on and conversate with.

For example: type in ‘dog training forum’ and you’ll immediately see loads of forums related to dog training that you can explore.

Now think about this for a moment…

Keyword research is a necessary part of finding keywords with enough combined traffic to make generating content for your blog worthwhile but…

keyword research tools don’t tell you why someone is typing in the search term they used to find the information they’re looking for.

Forum marketing allows you to go deeper into the reason behind why someone would input particular search terms into the search engines.

This is where the ‘gold’ is.

What makes this traffic so doggone powerful is this…

If the message in your content is properly matched up with the desires of your target audience, you will actually be able to convert a larger percentage of your traffic without the need to get millions of visitors.

To put it plainly…

You will be able to convert more prospects into customers with less traffic.

This is why the information I shared with you in lesson four is such an important part of your traffic generation strategy.

I wouldn’t really be helping you if all I did was just show you how to get a million visitors to your blog, because if none of those visitors buy anything or subscribes to your list, than you make nothing. Zilch, zero, nada, a big fat goose egg. (you get the point.)

I know that you want to get a lot of traffic to your blog but that’s because you might be under the impression that the more traffic you get, the more money you will make, or you will at least give yourself more chances to make money.

Am I right?

My friend that is only true so long as the content your providing to your prospects matches up with what it is THEY are looking for in the first place.

Make sense?


In the next lesson we’re going to talk about how to build the credibility you need to wield the kind of influence that will make your audience ultra responsive to your ideas, recommendations and suggestions the right way with forum marketing.
