I was thinking about how to help people get the best answers when they come here looking for help and it occured to me that the WF is very much like Google in this respect.
The quality of the returned information is massively determined by the way you ask your question.
In Google if you type "help with pain" you'll get millions of results about all types of pain, medication, treatments, cures etc...
If you type "using hypnosis to avoid pain at the dentist" then you'll get much more specific information.
This forum is the same.
If you title your thread "help me with this" - you're already going to struggle because people need to know more about what you want help with.
If you're looking for help with create a newsletter (for example) then a thread title something like "newsletters - how to create one?" would let the right people know to read your thread.
Then once you're composing your post the same applies. Don't just put "how do I get traffic to my site?" since the answer to this type of generic question will ALWAYS be - "it depends." There are way too many things for anyone to consider that without some more context they can only give you a poor or generic answer.
So, if instead you asked:
"Traffic in the PC gaming niche - Any tips for this?" and then provide some information such as "I have a PC gaming niche website where I do video reviews for new games as (and sometimes before) they're released. I get some traffic from people finding my site when searching on Google but I'm new to marketing and hoping some warriors could give me some thoughts on how to help increase my traffic. My ideal visitor would be a male 13-40 years of age into multi-player gaming and my most desired action from them would be to join my email list to get tips and find out when I release new videos. I sometimes put them on youtube but don't really understand video marketing so any tips on improving that would be great too.
Any and all advice greatfully accepted.
Thanks in advance"
Do you think you'd get better replies than the usual "do articles" or "get links"?
The more information you can give your fellow warriors to make their answers suit your situation - the better then answers will be and the more likely you are to get the right people responding to you.
Just a thought that might help you help yourself.
