Forums was my first social media 18+ years ago.
The forums is where Gurus, Experts and SEO Experts told me that Traffic Exchanges was a waste of time and efforts and that a pet monkey could be trained yo sit in front of a computer and Click... Next.
Of course, they didn’t know what they was talking about and I got a lot of followers that started using Traffic Exchanges to promote their products and services.
While in the Traffic Exchanges forum, Owner, Admins And Veteran Marketers told me that FFAs is a waste of time and efforts and the only people that made money was the owner of the FFAs.
Of course, The Traffic Exchanges users didn’t know what they was talking about either and I got a lot of followers that started using FFAs.
The forums are great places to share ideas but be Ready for the veterans members that will challenge you on your views if they consider radical to their views.
Even in the SFI forum, I have encountered Top Leaders when it come to using Free advertising but the more they debated with me the more followers that follow me.
Currently, I have over 1,000+ Followers since I been active in SFI forums a little over 2 years.
My point: Don’t be afraid to share your point of view and be an active member to help others when you can.
