The internet has empowered us with knowledge. If you need information (about anything), it is available at the tips of your finger. Whether you need more information for your school essay, research for your next car, or how to guides on home improvements. You should be able to find your answers via blogs, YouTube, etc.
When I first started Smart Affiliate Hub, people were trying to put me down by saying how competitive my niche is. Yes, it is very competitive, but I don’t view them as my competition. You see, I don’t know everything about how to make money online. There are many experts out there who are far more knowledgeable than you and I.
I view my so-called competition as mentors who are sharing their experience and knowledge, so I can learn and educate my readers. If you think about it, that’s what teachers do too! They learned from teachers in the past, and now they are teaching others.
Back in my days, yes I am very old… people used forums as the main source of information. That’s because a community has people with different experiences.
Regardless of your niche, you should have no trouble finding one. All you have to do is type in your niche followed by the word forum. (Ex. Weight Loss Forum).
In this article, I will go over 5 forums specifically helpful for bloggers and marketers. Without further ado, let’s dive right into it! By the way, the following list is in no particular order.
When I first discovered the Warrior Forum, I thought it was related to fitness. Well, I was very wrong. As a matter of fact, the Warrior Forum has been around for over 28 years! It has a community of over one million marketers from all around the world.
The reason why most bloggers and marketers join the Warrior Forum is that they have sub-sections that cover literally everything you can possibly think of. For example, paid advertisement, copywriting, email marketing, content marketing, etc. If you have a question that relates to making money online, you’ll probably find it there.
However, like most forums, they do have membership options. There are a free portion and a paid portion with a sizable marketplace. For most people, the free membership is enough.
Similar to the Warrior Forum, but not as well-known. As I write this article, the blogger hub has over 15,000 members with members contributing over 5000 threads and 13,000 posts.
Unlike most forums, the blogger hub focuses on specific challenges that modern bloggers face. What I really like about this community is that they welcome you with open arms. After you introduce yourself, you will find not only a helpful community but all the information you need to become a successful blogger.
If you want to make money online as a blogger then you can’t ignore Digital Point. This forum covers every aspect of blogging possible, so no matter what you’re searching for. They should have an answer somewhere.
For example, if you click on any of their topics, you will find yourself with plenty of sub-forums that breaks down every piece of the puzzle.
One of the best advice I have for you when it comes to blogging and making money online is to network with people in your space. The digital point has over 830,000 members with members contributing over 2.3 million discussions and 17.5 million messages.
The Moz Question and Answer Forum
The Moz Question and Answer Forum is similar to Quora and Reddit. If you enjoy using Quora and Reddit, then you will also enjoy using Moz Question and Answer Forum.
The only con I have for the Moz Question and Answer Forum is the fact that you have to eventually upgrade to a Moz Pro account if you want to ask your own questions. It costs around $179/month, but currently sports a 30-day free trial!
It’s quite expensive for new bloggers that are on a low budget, but I highly recommend become a Moz Pro once you can afford it. Conversely, you can also earn your way in by earning 500 MozPoints by participating in YouMoz and the Moz Blog.
The Designer Hangout
Designer Hangout is an invite-only network for UX designers and researchers. It’s one of my favorite community where you can talk about your website design. You see, even though it’s important to have quality content for SEO, your website design is very important as well.
First, let’s talk about why we have SEO! Besides getting ranked on the search engines, the reason why we even have SEO is that Google and other major search engines are very much about user experience. If your website is hard to navigate, it will reduce user experience and that’s bad for ranking!
