On April 5th I will celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the best move I ever made in my internet marketing business: the day I joined Portal Feeder. Here is a brief Portal Feeder review focusing on just one small aspect: the Portal Feeder forum.
Recently I have been posting about PayPal and giving out other internet marketing tips and information and I can see from the comments that people find this useful. I am happy about that!
It is great to be able to help people out even though I do not claim to know everything there is to know about internet marketing by any means. I’m not a guru! I just know enough to run a business which is now earning more than I used to earn in the day job that I quit on a wildly optimistic whim 3 and a half years ago.
I have spent literally thousands of dollars on ebooks, videos and memberships, especially during the year that I switched from eBay selling into internet marketing.
And yet, practically all of the *useful* information that I have ever discovered has come from the Portal Feeder forum. I don’t mean that the other information I learned was useless, exactly … just that I did not use it. Mostly because it was not useful to me at the time when I got it.
The Portal Feeder forum just seems to have a special ‘magic dust’, telling me things that I do actually use.
The atmosphere is very positive too – unlike certain other internet marketing forums. It is a supportive environment and you can ask practically any question and be pointed towards something you can use. You don’t see people desperately trying to promote affiliate products or sell their own stuff.
There is a mentor system and the mentors are in the forum practically every day. And the official support team are the best I have ever encountered.
But one of the best things about it that I have never seen on any other IM forum is that Paula from Portal Feeder Support sends out a summary every Saturday of all of the most interesting threads on the forum. So you don’t even have to spend a lot of time in there, and you don’t have to worry about missing anything. You can just while away an hour or two at the weekend catching up.
The only bad point about the Portal Feeder forum is the Search feature, which is, frankly, useless. It can be very frustrating to suddenly need a recommendation for site backup software, for example, that you KNOW you saw in a forum post a few weeks ago, and then not to be able to find it. I’m on a mission to have them improve the Search feature … but meanwhile I just make sure to bookmark all the best information when I am going through the weekly summary on a Saturday. Or just ask Portal Feeder member Damien who seems to have every post ever made saved to a database that he searches for us whenever anybody has trouble finding anything
Right now Portal Feeder has been closed for many months and the forum has become a cosy place, almost like family. In a couple of weeks they will be opening up again and we will have a rush of new blood. It’s an exciting time!
Portal Feeder began as a tool for niche site owners who wanted to develop a virtual real estate empire, but it has now developed to the point where it has something to offer every type of internet marketer.
You can see my Portal Feeder review here – what I love and hate about Portal Feeder. It was written a while ago but it’s all still true except for the part about the boot camp. That has been reorganized so you can focus much better now.
You should consider joining … and when you do, be sure to make full use of the Portal Feeder forum.
