Warrior Forum – What Can You Learn From Others?
Many people have visited the warrior forum over the years for help with their online ventures. I remember going there many years ago and I even had a user name that I can no longer remember, this was before they changed to the newer format. I did not post much because I was such a newbie that I didn’t want to ask any really dumb questions. That in itself is the problem, if you do not ask the question, then you will never know the answer. To start, you will need to go join up and choose a user name. I use my real name inside the forum, but you can choose pretty much any name.
There are many places where you can go inside the warrior forum for answers, and you will have to spend some real time in there to see what is the proper area for your question. I would start with the FAQS section in the screenshot below, you will be able to type your question and search the kb or knowledge base of the forum.
Most people who are looking for a product being released will start where they are selling the products on the WSO section or warrior special offers. Do your studying and try to not impulse buy if possible. If you are new, you can get sucked into every single sales page really quickly, my advice is to read the whole thread in the WSO and watch it carefully.I also will say that if you are looking at an offer that has been on sale for a few days, go to the back pages and read what problems if any, that are going on with the particular offer. It’s called due diligence and you should be practicing this to protect yourself.
This is the main selling area, but there are many more places where services are being sold. If you are looking for a writer to write articles for you, then the warriors for hire section is a good start. They have many sections on the main page for you to look at, and they also have a private “War Room” where it costs $37 for 20 years or something like that. Pretty cheap for what you get, a lot of info overload can happen and has happened to many people in the past.
Use The Stickys!
Use the sticky posts inside of the forum to find out what is the best practices and what to avoid. Many folks, myself included, have had posts deleted or closed due to some moderator deciding that the post was either in the wrong area or self serving in nature. The whole point is to try and find the best spot to ask your question and avoid the frustration of loosing all your info that you were trying to get help with. After a while you will find trusted sources of information and you may end up searching for new posts by this person.
This is where many folks navigate to when they start reading the forum. It is a good spot to start, and a place that you can what other members are looking for in answers. I also know that when you are looking for a product review, many times you can look there and find what you need. By all means, read the sticky for this particular forum area as there are specific rules for this section that you will need to read. But, you can find out about a product faster in here than most other spots. The forum area is Internet Marketing Product Reviews & Ratings , and you will find out the straight info in most cases on a product name. I would also use the search function and find out what others are saying about a product name. Be careful to not bash the developer or maker of the product in question or you may find yourself with a ban from the forum.
Helpful information and discussion is encouraged, name calling and baseless accusations are not. If you have some decent manners and practice them, you should be fine. I will also name some other problems in the next section that you should avoid.
Do Not Link Drop Or Spam Threads
I have seen it time and time again on a WSO thread. Folks come in and spam the crap out of the thread or make some dumb remark, don’t do it! The post will be reported as quick as a flash and you could find yourself in hot water or banned. If you want to get some link juice from the forum, make a blog post inside the forum that is unique about a subject and post a link to your main blog from there. No affiliate links are allowed, but there is nothing saying that you cannot link back to your blog with any affiliate offer named there in a post.
No affiliate links are allowed in sigs or personal signatures. This is the section that shows below any posts you make, you may decide to have an anchor or non anchor text backlink pointing to your blog. Just be aware that all sigs are turned off in certain sections like the WSO section. You can no longer go in there and post on a thread with a link offer in your sig just to make it more visible and drive traffic away from the WSO seller’s thread. It’s dirty pool to do that, but so many have done it in the past that they had to make a new rule just to stop that.
This should be enough information on the warrior forum to get you started and keep you safe from being banned or losing your shirt. Do your studying and read what others are saying about a product or service. Good luck and I will see you at the forums.
