    Paid Forum Postings
    Hello.. I have a question about paid forum postings. I know A Best Web is the best place for paid forum posts.
    Do you guys feel paid postings are really worth while?
    I have a few programs which I manage that I am considering doing some paid posts.


    Also, could anyone suggest some other worthwhile forums where you have had success with paid posts? Any input is very much appreciated. Thanks!

    You tell us. Where can you get more exposure to qualified affiliates than that?

    As long as your programs are up to snuff, an announcement on ABW is a no-brainer. Even if you just find one good affiliate, they'll bring in far, far more than the cost of the announcement.

    Will My 75 USD ABW Ad Pay Me Back ?....~ Yep !...
    Hi

    Andy Rodriguez stated at ASW that Tiger Direct was a yukkie company that made 80,000 a month when it first joined ABW.

    After some cleaning up, purchasing a forum and getting some affiliates to join their programme, Tiger was making over 1 Million/ month. A tiny 2500 USD investment.

    There are more stories like this. Beachy doubled his business in like a year and a half since joining ABW.

    Several members here make stupid money doing this. Maybe not cuz of an announcement, but these might be the guys who will carry your programme if you are credible enough.

    You just need to be visible first. ABW is the place for that. Probably not google or Yahoo ! . How would affiliates get to know you or become familiar with you ? I'm not sure if you can quite get that kind of exposure anywhere else....

    I'd say 75 USD is chump change for what you get.

    Do you think new people would be adding posts frequently if they weren't worth it? Do you think the managers that are here would be paying for not only new program announcements, but full forums if it wasn't worth it?

    The ROI on announcements and forums for clean companies and good programs is very high.

    ok cool.. I can definitely see from some of the responses already that paid posting in ABW are certainly a great investment for someone with a decent program. Now I know I will be making a few in the very near future (just had a large merchant sign with us today)

    What about other places or forums that are good for paid posts? Stop me if that question is taboo

    If we thought there was someplace better, would we be here?

    I don't advertise my programs at any other forums. Why would I need to?

    And no, it really isn't an appropriate question to ask here anyway.
