Details

Forums are a established platform for inviting thoughtful discussion around topics of shared interest. They also provide an accepted way for brands to insert themselves into ongoing conversations about product or lifestyle issues. Finally, forums can have a number of measurable business benefits. For example, product-related forums often end up as a place where questions on product selection, product usage, or support issues are resolved among site visitors themselves, which ends up accelerating purchase decisions and reducing brands’ overall product support costs.

Pluck Forums enables a variety of message board capabilities. With a range of discussion format options, Pluck Forums enables content and community within a brand’s community structure, driving social networking and engagement, as well as viral traffic, page views, and time on site.

Pluck Forums has recently been enhanced to provide consumers with an even richer source of conversation and information. Standard forums features include integrated polls and robust search. Now forums can also be configured in a Question and Answer format. Consumers can continue to monitor the forums conversation offline through managed subscription notifications and unread post tracking.
