Any Advice For A Newbie?

I'm new to the forum, so I'd like to say hello first and foremost. I am new to the whole website thing and I have oulette forum which is a pretty unique niche. There aren't that many of them. I'm currently using GoDaddy, and although I've heard some negative things about them, I've had no problems. Their response time is 12-24 hours for e-mails, they have a 24 hour customer service line, and a lot of option. I'm only getting 200-400 unique visitors per day and I have 61 members but from what I've learned, that's not too bad for 3 weeks. I've been making enough with some affiliated advertising and an Amazon store to cover the cost of the forum, which right now is only about $8-$10 per month. I've learned much from this thread but also it's a little scary to hear about all of the changes I might have to make someday if I get big enough. Does anyone have any advice for me on marketing, gaining members, and maybe better ways to monetize my forum so that I may actually make a little bit from it?

Welcome to the forums RPro1975

It sounds like you're off to a good start on the site. Since it's your first post, I suggest you have a look at the forums index [webmasterworld.com], which contains a number of forums that are pertinent to marketing in general and also more specific to your task.

The Marketing World [webmasterworld.com] area will be of special interest to you. Check out the forum libraries within each forum, they contain some of the recognised gem threads that have been posted until now.
