Marketing through Newsgroups

Newsgroups can provide a source of traffic, if used wisely…

Before the World Wide Web, online marketers relied heavily on
newsgroups. Although many have slowly wandered away from this method of
internet marketing, newsgroups are definitely surviving (and thriving).


If you’re interested in trying newsgroup marketing, the following list
should keep you busy for a while. Below you’ll find 34 of the most popular
newsgroups among online marketers.


We do suggest setting up a alternative email address for usage
when you post to newsgroups, quite often SPAM mongers harvest email addresses
from the newsgroups and your regular email address could get flooded with junk
mail.

Remember, if you’re new to newsgroup marketing, it’s always a good idea
to lurk or read some other posts before you post to any newsgroup. Many
newsgroups DO NOT accept blatant advertising. You CAN market in these
newsgroups, but you must do it by posting helpful messages, marketing only with
the aid of a short effective signature.


If you’re not ready to spend time reading and posting to these
newsgroups right now, you may want to at least consider saving the list for
future use. Although the world may not beat a path to your offer, newsgroup
marketing is free. When used regularly, it can become an important part of your
online marketing campaign.
