Internet marketing forums are a great place to get free information about online marketing. But, can the information there really benefit you? Let’s find out by exploring the advantages of online forums; starting with the expert members.
Getting advice from experts
“A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study”
Every good internet marketing forum has members with experience in the field. An advice from an experienced internet marketer will benefit you a lot more than any online course. Even if the advice is not for you, you can still benefit from it.
However, how can you tell how experienced is the forum member? Even though there are experienced internet marketing on forums, most of the forum members have very little experience.
Also, the expert won’t share with you all their secrets. You might get helpful tips, but you will get a lot less than you would from articles. But, on the up side, you don’t need to worry about promotional material.
Non promotional information
Most forums will ban anyone for posting affiliate links (or any promotional links). You can be sure the advice you get is only to help you, and not to make you visit a link. Advices are much more reliable when there is no marketing involved, right?
Not always. First, just because someone doesn’t try to sell something, it doesn’t mean his advice is reliable. Although he (or she) might not have a reason to lie, mistakes are still inevitable.
Also, even if someone is trying to promote something, it doesn’t mean the advice isn’t reliable. No one will waste time writing an article full with false information. What about mistakes? You can still find some, but the writer will be much more careful than a forum poster. However, you can still find information about products on forums.
Find out users experience from different internet marketing products
You can find many discussions about different internet marketing product people use. This way you can find out if anything really is wrong with it. You can use it to tell the difference between a scam and a reliable product.
But this way is not always reliable. Just because one or two costumers had their problems with the company, it doesn’t make the product a scam. Some customers will blame a company for scamming them, even when it’s not the case.
Every product has its problems; it’s impossible to make everyone happy. Don’t reject a product just because you read one bad review.
So, can you trust the information on internet marketing forums? Probably, but you will benefit much more from online articles. No matter what you decide, I only wish you good luck.
Bonus: No internet marketing forum can give you this
There is a course that will not just teach you internet marketing, but also ho
