taking forum to next stage
ideas to take forum further

 11:46 pm on Nov 19, 2006 (gmt 0)

i have a new forum, i feel it is doing well, but i want to hear from people who have successfully launched a forum and made it huge.

i need the advice to take it to the next level.

my site is very small i have posts daily.

just wondering if anyone has any feedback to give me.

i am advertsing in google adwords, and various other sites.

is there anything else i can do to get thousands of members joining?

thanks steve

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, ssnet. You might start reading in the Community Building Library [webmasterworld.com] - there are some great archived threads about growing a forum, getting visitors, getting lurkers to post, etc.

It is important to answer some of the questions, I have added a set at [webmasterworld.com...]

Hope it helps.

If your forum covers a niche that no-one else or few is covering, then you will slowly get members by work of mouth. If you are competing in a busy market then it may be worth having a few boards that are quite specialist.

Make sure you visit the forums every day and reply to new posts, make new members welcome, and start new threads to get people discussing.
