Internet forums are not just fun and popular tools for finding information and making friends, they are great places to build your expertise and teach the world about your art. Forums are some of the first places people go when searching for information not because of the valuable resource they are, but they come up high in search engine results. This gives you, the artist and expert, a chance for real exposure to a worldwide audience of potential customers.
Forums are run by moderators that regulate the posts to keep advertisers and spammers from ruining the integrity of the information. You can register to create posts of your own and encourage a dialogue with the other members of the forum. You can answer questions to help others and make yourself look like an expert. Members will come back often and over and over again to seek information and to tell stories. Many long lasting relationships have been formed by members of forums.
Not only does this give you an opportunity for exposure, it helps your website traffic too. The links you leave on your posts should point to your website to help drive interested visitors to your art website. Google values highly the links from forums to your website and having many quality links from popular forums will help your website get better search engine positioning. Creating a presence on the Internet is as easy as having fun and making friends when you use art forums. Just Google "art forums" to find dozens of quality sites. Sometime just getting the proper training and guidance will work wonders for your business.
