    Any and all help appreciated.
    Please.

    Is this a serious thread? I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not..

    You obviously got banned for spamming.

    You can't just join forums and start mass PM'ing people and expect to not get banned.

    Well if you are really interested in mass PM'ing in forums then I would suggest getting software like xrumer or just hiring someone to do mass PM's for you. This way you can get 1000's of PM's at lots of different forums without doing it manually.

    You can find people here in the "Services" section to do this for you.

    Just make sure you target the right forums for your products.

    Personally though, I think you should try and learn up on some better methods than PM spamming forums though.

    I am serious because i did that. Must have been better had you suggested a solution instead of making fun of what i did as everyone starts sometime. And just to let you know i started it just to have one more revenue stream else i am fine with my CL incomes with some top quality providers here on BHW.
    Anyway, no offence was intended in my post so if you felt bad, i am sorry.

    It's all in the wording!

    Also

    Create an account with a name like "Admin-Message" or something, not "TECHNOTRON9000"

    Start out with a friendly line, as if you already know these people, and work from there.

    "Hey guys, hope your all ok, i've just managed to bag us some free trials with a leading manufacturer of -product-, they said theres a 500 limit so grab em while there hot! everyone likes free stuff, and i've heard there pretty damn good!

    cya on the forums!

    -AdminsForumName- "

    Works a lot better than "HARRO U BUY BES DEAL WHOLESAL FRO CHINA CHEAP FOR YOU SIR YES! CLIK MY LINK HERE AN BUY OK."

    That's what I want to know how to do it so that i don't get banned. Members can see that i have just joined the forum so obviously they won't trust me. hope i made sense.

    Thanks for the reply and suggestions but how do you avoid getting banned.....what you told was how to convince members as if you are real and know them......but how about getting you way through by not getting labbeled as SPAMMER even after sending bulk PMs.
    Hope i conveyed across my problem.
    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe contact the site admin and make a deal with him to promote your stuff.

    If you just start spamming any forum obviously nine of the ten times you will get banned , so just try to accept that .

    When i was spamming forums i just was expecting a ban but in these couple hours my account was active i made money , so i made new accounts until i got bored with the whole forum spamming thing .

    I would not bother to undo the ban if your account was new. You've been flagged anyway. Start a new one, participate in the community, avoid doing anything stupid and even contribute by answering questions and suggestions. Forum marketing is a very social thing - would you like to buy something from a total stranger jumping at you in front of your garage? To improve conversions, I would make use of the search function to find potential buyers. Alternatively, start a lively thread, see who joins the conversation and pm those - they are less unlikely to report you. Just my 2c... we all do mistakes.

    You sent 200 pm and did not get any sales.There are three possible reason of it:
    1. You have targeted wrong forum
    2. Your message was not well written.
    3. The forum is already saturated.

    And the reason of getting ban:
    1. People reported about you.
    2. You sent message to mods.....lol

    Always send messages from more than one account. Like if you need to send 200 message, send them from 5 accounts.That will reduce the probability of getting ban.

    And don't do it manually for chrissakes! Waste of time... There're softwares for that...the only thing you can do is to enter captchas for the program when you're creating accounts...but it's better to use decaptcher anyways if you have money.

    And I have a feeling that you won't mind sharing (just the name of) one of those softwares that works great.
    Thanks in advance.
