Making your new forum a sucess?

Well when everyone first starts a forum people gripe and moan about hits and visitors so I decided to make a short little introduction how how to bring more visitors in and how to keep them!

Now, we all know you must have a site and a niche your going to want to jump into. I would advice going with something unique. Like don’t do Xbox or gaming or anything so over done, then you will have to invest a large amount of money with minimal results. Your going to want a small niche that you can provide a good place for people interested in it to post and talk about it. Like instead of baseball forums, do like eastern baseball teams. Instead of Gaming forums do a specific game or system.

After that your going to need some forum software to get an actual system up to use. I would recommend something free like Mybb, or SMF. It is not worth spending $80 on IPB or VB when you have no members and in the first few months those are hard to come by. So wait it out until you get a few hundred then if you want to switch I’d say do it. Personally try Mybb or SMF. I love them both so it’s all about preference. And Get a skin! No one likes the default and you can easy modify anyone that you like to fit your needs.

Now the hard part is going to be getting it active. People never want to be the first to do anything. They like to easily be led into joining and registering to post on something. I would recommend Forum Shock and get some paid posters! This is not a plug I have used Bryan’s services many times and have to say it’s A+. Now after your package experience continue to led discussion, even making a few accounts on your a different email and post things to start up debate or interesting topics. After that members should come and make sure you have some SEO work done. Which should be easy if you post your forum link in your signature around other places. I would say join a competing forum and PM people with your link and incise them to join. Most people that it is really personal and would join.

There by no means is time to sit back and relax! All forums require alot of time and effort into creating a ‘success’ and by no means is there one bar to jump over. It’s all about personal success and what you think about what you did.
