Message boards are similar to discussion lists, but are done on a website rather than through email. The same advice applies. Read guidelines and rules for posting. Do not just try to post an ad and never come back. Get involved with conversations, meet people, learn from people, help them and offer advice when you can. Doing this type of advertising can add strength and solidity to your business. You will be trusted and people will listen to you when you recommend a product or resource.
Try to visit boards regularly to keep abreast of conversations and information. Post a question, answer or experience whenever possible. Never insult, belittle or put down a person because they do not agree with your opinion or ideas. Always treat people with respect!
