    I like to visit different forums for advice and to give advice but I feel that I am doing it quite inefficiently. It seems to be very time-consuming. Does anyone have any advice on how to make it
    less time consuming and easier? Tools? Techniques? Apps? Short cuts? Any advice would be much appreciated

    You can make it less time consuming if you include it in your daily routine.
    Maybe schedule one hour a day for forum browsing preferably in the evening. That way your are not going to get carried away and loose a lot of time.
    Also, make a list of the questions you want answered. For example
    "how much a new logo should cost me" or
    "what are the best ways to advertise in the social media".
    After you have the questions concentrate on finding their answers.
    Don't browse any other topics except for the ones that will help you to achieve your goal.
    Even if you find something that seems interesting if it is not connected to the question - leave it for the other day.
    If you follow these (have in mind that they require a lot of self discipline :) )you won't end up lost in useless conversations and topics.
    Have a nice day and good luck!

    Try to figure out what topics you are expert with in giving advice. Make a spreadsheet and log all the topic, url and advice that you have shared, so won't be able to open the thread again and you may have more time to find a new one. Giving advice is really helpful to those in need, especially in the field of business that everyone is working for profit.
