Actually forum can not be said as marketing strategy, it is a discussion platform between an expert and a learner.
Forum for marketing is not possible.

Arrow Time to reassess this topic — some obvious facts:

I find it interesting that someone would re-post the original post from 2006: the same year that Facebook launched.

In 2006, forums were at the height of their influence… but the new social networks — another evolutionary progression in the original internet platform (bulletin boards) — would quickly catch the imaginations of a far broader audience.

It’s now 2015. NINE years later. A lot has changed. Many business-related forums have been effectively taken over by SEO operators and forum spammers from Eastern Europe, Asia, the Middle East, etc. This is to be expected as these countries and regions begin to look for better living standards and to take control of their own destinies.

It's like telemarketing… previously a dying channel in most first world countries because of abuses by telemarketers using tactics that may have worked in the 1970 and 1980s, but which began making telemarketing a stench in the nostrils of consumers, and they began refusing to accept unethical and abusive methods from the 1990s, resulting in Do-Not-Call registries, etc.

In the 2000s, telemarketers from India and the Philippines leapt into the gap, successfully selling their services as low-cost call centres to first world corporations. But they fell into the trap of training their sales teams in the old, abusive methods of the 70s and 80s, creating all kinds of rejection and resentment for their client first-world companies with their own customers.

So comparing today's forums with 2006 (pre-Social Networks) forums is pretty pointless.

In 2015, forums like this have a valuable and useful role to play that social media and social networks haven't been able to fulfill.

Yes, LinkedIn has been smart enough to expand content delivery, lead generation and business networking, but it's the exception. Not even Google+ has been able to deliver a platform that adequately replaces forums.

Forums allow us to delve deeper than social network sites, pages and groups. We can navigate topics of interest much easier. We can search in depth. It's just all-round easier to do these things on well-run forums.

And that's the key — finding good forums that actually deliver high-quality, authoritative, reliable information, insights and ideas.

Your answer too short and not detailed.
Would you mind to explain why YES?
Try to be specific on your post.
