1) Make sure it is easy to join. DO you have a "Join Now" or similar link on every single page?
2) Make absolutely sure that there are no errors on your signup pages. Check your log files- are you getting any errors?
3) Make sure you're not asking for too much information. Do you require a lot fo personal information to join? The more info you ask for, the more likely people will decide not to join.
4) Make sure you have a decent incentive for joining. What do you currently offer as benefits for registering?
5) Make sure you have realistic expectations. How many people are visiting your site every day? Tens? Hundreds? Thousands?
