Hey Pros

Please can someone be very kind enough to advice me on how to get my website Forum to attract more people and for them to contribute to discussions as well as start their own topics.

I have got some written by myself and quite a few are from other people but would like the site to have good attendance and participation both in "Replies" to topics and "Newtopics" being started.

I really will be glad to get some professional advice on this issue. Your advices will be very much welcomed.


Thanks

The best way to promote a forum is to have an active looking forum. No one would post in forum where they don't see people interacting and so it would be good option to get your friends to start interacting in the forum

If you are talking about http://www.selling-arena.com/forum/ I think it needs a lot of things to be done and one thing that I will suggest is focus on building community and then ads.

It is "building community and then ads" and not "building community and the ads"

Something where you ad the money earning factor after you have people in your forum and some traffic levels.
