Forum Marketing

What is an Internet Forum

When it comes to forum marketing, this is the first question, what is an Internet forum?

In the simplest terms, an Internet forum is

“a group of people interacting with each other on social media and exchanging their views on a common topic”

There are forums for everything, and I mean everything! It doesn’t matter what your niche is, there’ll be a discussion forum for it. Problems, successes, tips and hacks, relating to one subject are all discussed.

An online forum can be one of the best places to find online, unbiased reviews about any product. If I’m looking to make a new purchase, say for example a Nutri bullet, I’ll do a search for forums on juicing. Read more

Overcoming Fear in 3 Simple Steps

Overcoming fear in 3 simple steps, a simple formula to get you moving in your online business. And I mean, it really is simple, no courses, books etc are needed.

Overcoming Fear in 3 Simple StepsYou know, when I first started in Internet marketing pretty much everything scared me. Not the building a website part, I already had experience with that, but pretty much everything else.

List building in particular really had me stumped, (Don’t worry if you don’t know what this is yet, it’ll be getting covered in due course!)
It really was like learning a new language, SEO, XML, list building, analytics, PPC, driving traffic, the list is endless!
I got to thinking about what other people are/were scared of when they started their journey so decided to ask the question. I asked 100s of people within the groups that I’m part of and there was only one person who said there was nothing.
Here are some of the things people are frightened in their online business:
  • Writing content and letting others read it.
  • English wasn’t their first language.
  • Who on earth would be interested in reading their stuff!
  • Failing to make money.
There was more, but you get the drift, it all boils down to fear of failure.
So how did I, and they, conquer the fears, write and publish content, get to grips with all the different elements involved in having an online business?

How to Create a Clickable Map

Wondering how to create a clickable map? Have you searched online and gotten lost in all the search results? Let me save you some time, effort and money. There are many sites showing how to make a clickable map.

Why Do I Need A Clickable Map?

As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I get an opportunity to help other members. A few days ago, the question came up if there were any plugins to create a clickable map. I had not heard of one but it got me to thinking how cool that would be.

So I began searching and found a few sites where a clickable map could be created. I wrote a blog on Wealthy Affiliate about Pat Flynn’s map (see #1 below). Unfortunately, Pat’s site did not include a map of Ireland which was needed for a young man’s travel site.

I went back to searching and found Make a Clickable map (see #2 below). Now this member has been able to create a clickable map for his website featuring interesting sites in Ireland.
