Well some of them at least, as they are being over run with self promoting egotistical hacks that think the purpose of forums are to build links or push their crap. Actual quality posts are becoming few and far between and some of the responses that people (or paid forum posters) are writing absolutely useless.
I saw a recent post in a well established Internet Marketing Forum that basically went along the lines of “what is the best way to split test my landing pages?” (a valid question) The first half a dozen replies were things like “I don’t know what the best way would be, sorry I can’t help”, “Not sure what most people use because I don’t split test” and “Don’t worry about split testing, just focus on getting more traffic”.
Hidden Internet Marketing Messages from Outer Space
Maybe I missed the line in the post that said “Only give me the most stupid answers you can come up with” or maybe I am missing something in the replies or are there hidden messages from outer space that I need to decipher in order to get the answers??
It is common sense (I assume) that if we don’t have anything of value to say why the hell would we reply and waste our time and the readers unless we are building links or pushing something, in which case we should be elsewhere.
This is why I no longer spend too much in IM Forums like these and instead focus my time on the quality paid forums that are filled with value and people that genuinely want to help.
The Best Internet Marketing Forums
are usually paid because in a paid forum you only get people that are committed to the topic and who want to contribute to the community.
The small fee that you will pay acts like a filter to get rid of the people who love to spam forums for links and blatant self promotion because they are too tight to Sign Up and don’t understand the power of providing value and building relationships.
For example I recently had a forum member send me a message and say that they found a glitch on one of my sites. They weren’t trying to sell something or didn’t have any hidden agendas they genuinely just wanted to help out a fellow member.
Why would you pay for a forum?
Some might ask. The first question I would ask is “How much is your time worth?” Sifting through rubbish like the above example to get the answers you want or to learn the new trick when you could get what you want in one tenth of the time in a Quality Forum.
This is what most people don’t get, if you Sign Up to a Quality paid forum and as a result you learn what you need to learn in a month instead of 2 years you have just supercharged your knowledge and earnings for years to come and lept past your competition.
Time is worth a million times more than money and if you are the sort of person that comes up with a bunch of excuses why you can’t afford it then you probably aren’t very serious about making money online, which is great as it leaves more on the table for those that are.
One of my favorites
is Get Super Fast Results the unique community that one of the worlds sneakiest Underground Internet Marketers James Schramko has created. Not only has he created a tight knit supportive community where members are more focused on helping each other get results faster than who has the biggest light saber.
There are tons of videos with the sneakiest of sneaky tricks and tips, plus you get access to regular private webinars that are held by James himself. The webinars are super targeted as the community votes on what the webinars will be about and are usually question and answer so that you get exactly what you want.
Not sure if I am allowed to say this, but there are also high powered custom made tools in the forum that 99.99% the Best Internet Marketers in the world don’t even know about. This is also where I learnt to put name captures over other peoples sites to build my list. I better leave it at that to save my ass…
Get Super Fast Results Forum
like the name suggests it helps you get you the results in record time. As soon as I first joined the IM Forum my knowledge went through the roof and it helped to boost my income a modest 5 figures in the first 2 months I was a member and it has kept growing since. Well worth the 100 bucks per month if you ask me.
The bad news is, since James likes to stick to quality not quantity not everyone gets accepted. This is to keep the content quality, great value and to make sure the existing members are always happy.
At the time of writing there is a special on for those that are accepted, where you can see what all the fuss is about for only $1 on a 14 day trial after that it reverts to an investment of a 100 bucks.
If you are serious about fast tracking your success then check out what is in my opinion the best IM Forum for quality information and support from fellow members.
