Hi, Guys I just wanted to share that I have had a good reception to marketing on different forums. Including Hosting Discussion. I feel it is one of the best ways to get customers and a low cost way of getting them.

I actually just got a customer who is starting a forum <URL snipped> I told him I would tell people about it to help get more users on the forum.

If this post is not allowed please remove it.

Thank you

This forum looks good and I've just signed up, but when I try to go to any other page than the main one, I get 404.

I agree, advertising on the forum is a very good investment.

I wouldn't say the best, maybe good for branding. Anytime there is a lot of competition in one place it's overwhelming for the customer. I would advertise on forums but not just rely on it.

We have always advertised on forums but you have to do the other things also, Facebook, Twitter and even eBay if you have a special running. The main thing is get your name out there.

It works, helps with a few extra sales but to be really honest it isn't the biggest source for hosting clients

I find posting on forums total waste of time for getting customers, am now looking at SEO or face book. Most forums are dead, or full of people not in my target market.

All the forums are getting flooded with offer posts so its getting hard to attract customers through forums.

This is true, forums aren't as powerful as they used to be but forum posting is still good for SEO itself.

Forum posting is good for increasing traffic to your site, but has no effect on SEO rankings directly. Increased traffic should translate to more sales.
