Having a forum on your site is a very effective means of bringing in both new and repeat visitors; there’s probably no need to tell you that.
Forum post articles are also indexed by search engines and given that the activity on the forum will generally be relevant to your site’s content, having one means that your primary keywords as well as relevant long tail keywords will appear regularly enough to make it especially attractive to the search engines.
Essentially, by participating in your forum, your visitors will be helping your search engine optimization efforts in a big way.
If your website is commercial in nature, then having a forum can do something even more valuable: give you the ability to have a truly interactive two-way dialogue with your visitors (ie – current and potential customers). Being able to participate in this kind of conversation with your audience is immensely important to any business.
Knowing exactly what’s on your customer’s minds is far valuable than what almost any amount of market research could tell you; and it’s information you can start using immediately. It also allows you a very personal way to communicate with your readers and customers which a static website or even the comment capabilities of a blog just can’t compete with.
However, all of these great things only start happening once people actually start using your forum – and therein lies the problem. Once your forum is up and running, it can do wonders for your traffic and provide tons of useful user-generated content, but you need to get people interested first.
If you’ve just started a forum on your site, it can take some time before people begin posting. Why is this? Simple: research shows that given the choice, people will almost invariably choose to participate in forums which are already active. So if people don’t like posting on new or inactive forums, how do you generate that activity that draws new members to your forum?
We’re glad you asked. NAA offers forum post articles to help you get the conversation started on a new forum or revive an established forum which is starting to lag.
How it Works
When you contact us about getting your forum active, we’ll discuss the details of your forum with you and get to work right away, posting new topics of your choice, adding replies to existing ones and generally, opening up a conversation for your visitors to jump into. You can specify the number of posts, the topics you want covered and any keywords you’d like to see used in our forum posts.
Even if your site and your forum are brand new, getting a jump start through NAA forum post articles will help you attract traffic quickly. You’ll have the essential elements which Google and other major search engines like to see and that keep their crawlers coming back to re-index your site: frequently added content which is relevant to your site’s main topic and contains relevant keywords/phrases.
We don’t want to toot our own horns here too much, but we are a writing service, after all, so the forum posts we create for your site, albeit short, will be the kind of high quality content that your target audience will find informative and engaging. In short, NAA’s forum post articles will help draw in new visitors in your target market and make them want to stick around and participate in the discussion.
An online community doesn’t build itself and it doesn’t happen overnight of course, but with our help it can happen a lot faster. It’s a competitive world out there, especially on the web and every edge you can get over your rivals matters more than you think. Building a community around your business is a powerful way to grow your customer base, establish brand identity and ultimately, drive sales of your products and services – and in the end, isn’t that what every business wants?
Our forum post articles can help your business grow its own community on the web.
