Community websites can be a really good place to promote your products, but you have to know how. A community is not just about taking, it is also about giving. This is something people tend to forget.
When talking about community websites, we mean for example forums and Question & Answer websites. A few good examples are:
When using any forum it is important not to spam. Use the following tips to promote your items in a descent way:
Find relevant questions – Pointing to your product should be good value for the person asking the question. If not, don’t post.
Answer questions without any self benefit – It is fine to promote your product, but don’t do so with everything answer you give. Instead help people out. People will appreciate it and will be more willing to help you.
Add links to your profile and signatures – When answering questions, a lot of people will read your answers overtime and read your profile.
Always mention the product is yours – Just be honest. People will suspect it anyway and will otherwise see you as a Spammer.
