Online Groups and Forums

Online forums and discussion groups are a really great way to market yourself and your business, or product & service. It's simply you putting yourself out there in every way possible. You might be talking about your family and kids, or helping answer someones question that they have posted. It shouldn't be about just "advertising" your business, there are classifieds for that. Add a link to your website in your signature line, that way those who are interested in what you have to offer will be able to request information from you instead.

You can do a google search to find different groups that are focused towards your personal interests. I will share some of the one's that I use...

www.wahm.com/forum Here you will find a little bit of everything.

www.mywomanownedbusiness.com This is a rather new online social networking site for women business owners. (If you decide to join in, let me know and we can share together.)

www.cafemom.com Another mom site with lots of different groups to join in with.

www.mayasmom.com I really love this site. Not because it's a great place to advertise, it's more of a place to meet other moms, and a few dads, in fact there are only certain places that you can actually advertise your business and such. This is nice because you are not constantly hit up by people trying to sell you something. So if you are looking for a place to meet others online, and make some friends along the way, this one is great. (You can find me here by searching for my3lives)

So there you have it, just a few of my favorite places to network online. If anyone has others that they just absolutely love, please share.
