net marketing forum Is Back!

I’m a little emotional today and that’s because my ‘baby’ is back 🙂

Back in the early 90’s I was just getting started online…

I had big dreams, tons of energy and absolutely NO network. As I tip toe’d around the business, I noticed more and more people hung out in the online forums. Back then there were only a handful of forums that catered to online marketing and by 2002-2003, I frequented two exclusively!

One was the world famous Warrior Forum and the other was this niche forum called the Traffic Exchange Focus Group. Time went by and the Traffic Exchange Focus Group disappeared and it left a huge whole for traffic exchange discussion. Back then (and even today) if you went to the Warrior Forum and brought up traffic exchanges you were run out of dodge, so we needed a new home…A place where enthusiasts, online marketers and affiliates could discuss the massive potential of advertising in the T.E.’s…

Net Marketing Forum was born!

The forum catered to a very specific niche market but also to the wide world of internet marketing. It was the best of both worlds where BUSINESS was discussed daily and where a debate could go on for weeks at a time.

Thanks of Net Marketing Forum I met the who’s who of the traffic exchange industry and formed great relationships that last to this day. Without NMF, there would be no Timtech, as this is where I met both of my partners!

There was such an awesome sense of community and friendship but at the same time it was all about business. This was a special place however throughout the years as social media became the norm, NMF sadly drifted away.

Over the years, I felt something was missing…

So today, we brought it back online!

Net Marketing Forum’s sole mission then and now is to bring people together. No matter what happens in online business, the primary job of marketers is to be around like minded people and network with each other. Yes, we still talk about traffic exchanges. Yes we still look for useful tips and tricks and yes…We may even disagree on things.

But the PEOPLE are what make forums so important!

I’d love to welcome you to the new and improved Net Marketing Forum…It’s your business, your voice and your forum once again.

Let’s have some fun!

Know, Like & Trust? How When You Are Hiding?

To become a superior internet marketer you must get people to…Know! Like & Trust you!

Heard that a few times huh?

The age old saying that you must get people to know, like & trust you sounds great on paper. The issue is most new and even experienced marketers like to hide behind the curtains of the internet. They rarely engage others. Never appear in blog comments. Hide behind the ‘I’m too busy‘ excuse, and rarely see the results they expect.

Simple solution really…Get people to know, like and trust you!

But how?

Get out from behind that curtain and actually be SEEN!

This is why I’m such a huge fan of programs like TE List Builder because they encourage marketers to actually do the work and step out of their comfort zones….Here’s a few other tips to get people to know, like and trust you and ultimately join your mailing list!

1. Be Active! – I’m a huge fan of people actually DOING things to learn. Don’t just read a few blog posts and then presto, you are an expert. But actual work! Actually learning WHY you are putting yourself out there to get people to know you. The more people see you taking action, daily, the more you will attract their attention.

2. Video Killed The Fake Internet Star
– Here’s an added bonus. I use a simply webcam that’s installed on my desktop and use YouTube for free to upload all my videos. How much does it cost me to get people to ‘know’ me through this format? Absolutely nothing. It’s free. Use it for yourself and get better results today.

3. Use A Little Dash Of Excitement & Sprinkle of Passion
– I did a quick blog post on TE List Builder’s blog platform about this earlier today. Want to get more people to ‘know, like and trust’ you? Add some passion in your videos. People want to be around others that show excitement in what they do for a living. try it, it’s contagious!

Added bonus:
Maybe video isn’t your cup of tea. Perhaps you aren’t comfortable to get behind the camera yet. Not to worry, because that’s where blogging comes in…Someone recently asked me, what comes first the blog or the list…I say they can be worked on and mastered at the same time. You build your lists by blogging and creating content daily 🙂

Brand and Build!
This is the sure fire way to see list building success using nothing but traffic exchanges. But it is going to take some work and elbow grease…From you 🙂
