Networking Through Forums & ICQ

Computer networking is a vital skill for the modern age, and every webmaster should be able to use these skills. Networking is the first place to start for new contacts, advice on attracting business to your site, and other money-making schemes. Networking is a support system, and is necessary amongst paysite owners. Members will often discuss subjects such as password protection, anti-hacking devices, and the best places to get new paysite software. They will also discuss changes in the law, new sites, and even whether cross sales are a good idea.
Networking through forums is the most popular method for webmasters to contact each other, and there are a number of sites out there that provide such services. The best way to find out which one is most suited to you is to visit them, and join. Ask questions, and look around at what the other members are interested in. That way, you will eventually find a good place. A number of the people on these forums will have been running paysites for years, so they will be able to advise you and answer any questions you may have.
ICQ is a messaging system, which allows multi-character chat, and a searchable user directory. While forums take a long time to answer, and the thread may last several days, ICQ is snappier, and there may be an instant result. This is the place to come for quick answers and solutions. There are a number of sites devoted to this kind of conversation as well, all hosted by people in the know, and a place where questions are encouraged.

Chat rooms are more convivial, and a place where networking can mean looking for people with the same interests, or in the same area, as you, to enable you to talk more freely about subjects that interest you. There is more back-and-forth in Chat rooms. Chat rooms allow a more realistic level of interaction with others on the internet.

It is essential as a paysite webmasters to network as much as you can with others in the same field. There is also the possibility that you might get freeware passed through your connections, or even invites to conventions. Mostly networking is a chance to discuss your paysite problems with others, and sound-off about the work. It is a great way to gain experience of running a paysite without having the bad experiences that go with it.
