I’m a big fan of forums and think they can be a very useful tool for entrepreneurs and business owners. I’ve found especially helpful the private placement industry forums. I’ve found here that these provide the most honest, real-time feedback I’ve ever received, and I have learned a lot from these people.
Private placement companies are like real-life investment banks. They give investors the chance to invest into companies they wouldn’t get otherwise. There are thousands of these companies (and hundreds more offering similar services) and most offer their services on forums. The main difference between the two is that forums offer a much more direct way to interact with potential investors and, while forums can be a great place to meet people, they arent as effective for the long term.
As a forum operator, you have to deal with the fact that there are a lot of people who will try to scam you. On the other hand, forums can be great places to network with people you don’t know personally because you can meet people you might know from your previous job and they can show you the work that they have done.
Most forums are simply a forum for people to chat about their personal finances. They dont offer any real-life information. However, some forums are very useful for learning how to sell investments, and there are forums for that. The problem is that if you try to sell your stock, then you cant just post a thread on a forum and expect someone to buy your stock from you. You have to actually have a working post on the forum in order to get a response.
There are forums on the internet for this exact reason. Most forums are just private message boards where people can chat about their finances.

The problem is that the private placement industry is filled with people who are selling their investment portfolios. These people have an incentive to post on forums since they have an opportunity to make a quick buck on their back. Unfortunately, forum posting can easily become a game of cat and mouse where people have to constantly post to get their posts seen.
If you’re the sort that posts regularly to forums to make sure your stock isn’t under-valued, you’re likely to have a pretty good idea about what’s going on over on the various forums that you frequent. But with no real feedback, it’s easy to just do what you want. To avoid the forum wars, get a book on the subject and read it regularly.
I have a personal investment in the private placement industry, and I know for me it’s a game of cat and mouse where I have to constantly post. I do it to keep my stock up so I can post and post. But because of the amount of competition out there, its easy to just do what you want. For the rest of us, we have to go out and post something to try and get a piece of the action. Its an easy way to make a quick buck.
The private placement industry is a very competitive business, so there is no shortage of people who would like to make a quick buck by posting on forums and posting on lists. If you want to use it to make money, you need to find a way to post.
In the days before the Internet, it was very difficult to get a listing on a forum or a list, so being the first to post would get you a lot of attention, even though you could potentially get in trouble for being so early. These days, the only way to get into the private placement business is to go out and search for postings. To find them, you have to go to forums and list sites.
