How to Take Advantage of and Make the Most of the Info Barrel Community Forum

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 1

As a rather newly introduced addition to Info Barrel, Info Barrel's community forum has really been growing quite a bit lately. With new Info Barrel members introducing themselves almost daily, it's really no surprise that Info Barrel writers are beginning to view this community forum as a tremendous resource that they can really take advantage of to learn new things, better themselves as writers, and ultimately take the lessons they learn to help them achieve and earn more on Info Barrel.

The following Info Barrel article will teach you some of the ways that you can take full advantage of this booming forum in a way that is helpful to the community, as well as, serves to help improve your own Info Barrel-specific writing skills. The ability for one to produce high quality content, as I have said many times, will be directly related to the earning's potential of everyone who actively engages and involves themselves in this website.

Things You Will Need

Step 1

There can be a real monetary value that can be placed on the plethora of information and strategies that can be found in the Info Barrel forum. In many ways, it has untapped potential and embedded thought leaders that you can utilize in order to help address your questions and put you on solid track towards success. Unfortunately, however, whether on Info Barrel's community or another community forum, there is always a tendency for users to "take" and rarely give back to the community. With such a massive base of users, the emergence of this mentality is actually quite expected, especially when many are trying to further themselves.

The time one spends posting and responding to threads could, arguably, be spent writing articles themselves: articles that could have a more direct monetary outcome. While it's not completely uncommon for people to naturally want to "take" from the community, there can also be a tremendous benefit to "giving" to the community, believe it or not.

Step 2

In response to mounting user requests for a user forum, it was really quite refreshing to see InfoBarrel management respond by integrating a great forum. On top of creating this forum, their responsiveness to user questions, concerns, and suggestions, is evidence in just how quickly they acted into creating this forum. With many great tools in place, it is up to us, both seasoned veteran and newbie writers, to make the most of the forum, and realize the vested interest we all have in seeing to the success of the collective. If you look out for others, even if they don't necessarily look out for you, you can still do your part in helping to ensure a very high quality article database that will manifest into increased earning's potential for each individual writer as InfoBarrel continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Step 3

Among some things writers can do to actively engage the community, and get new writers to interact, is to ask real general, broad and leading, open ended questions. Simple questions regarding topics such as the selection of one's InfoBarrel username, or how they found InfoBarrel, or what kind of goals for the future they have, can prove invaluable and can make writers feel wanted, appreciated, and apart of the community.

I would caution people not to associated their persona with someone who just continually seeks to "take" more and more from the community. Granted, we are all at different levels and some may need more help than others to stay motivated and jump start their writing on InfoBarrel. This is completely understandable, and, for that reason, we should all try our best to thoroughly and accurately address their questions and concerns. On the other end of the spectrum, however, be sure not to make the only reason you visit the InfoBarrel forum because you just want to receive a review or ask a question. Instead, balance those requests will real attempts to engage, conversate, and help other InfoBarrel members. A delicate balance between "taking" and "giving" can work wonders for you.
