I gained members alot promoting it on other websites. But until now it failed as a perfect promotion type, since they were interested in my website only for 1 day.

But sometimes, it may give you users that will be interested in your site for longer time.

A facebook page wouldn't do any good unless you have some back-up people with highly active facebook accounts to use it. I know a lot of highly active people that uses FaceBook ( about 2000+ active users ) that lives close ( that I talk to almost everyday ) to me. They are only interested to chat. My sisters are also included in that list, TT .

And you think that someone would join by posting your link here. About 78% of the viewers laughed at your post.

They truly must be good friends to do that, Dawa It's best that you give someone a staff rank and when they enjoy the power they'll advertise your forum like mad so that they'll have more people to abuse their power on. I've seen it done many times on many small forums. I wouldn't recommend this, by the way. Those people would more likely be inexperience or immature, Wink

Are you sure that would even get you a single member? Have you tired it and did it work for you?

If you submit your link to topsites, then to get to the top of the list, you'll need members to vote for your forum, Wink So, you're risking your members finding a better forum from looking in the topsite while you ask them to vote for your forum.

If you're forum is indexed on search engines and you don't have good content, how would visitors find your forum? Even if you have good content but you poorly use the content on your forum, you wouldn't get traffic from search engines.

And, by advertising your forum on other forums, you'll surely get banned unless you're allowed to advertise. Not much people even click links on your signature if you're not well known on the forum or if the content isn't interesting... If you say, "Join my gaming forum", I would surely ignore that link in anyone's forum signature, beu . But, if I see a popular person on the forum with a signature like that, then the chances of me joining would be increased. ( if you like the popular person, of course )

I have found that partnering with other websites has not only drawn traffic to my site, but has also given me a number of very useful contacts. When you apply to form a partnership with a site, make sure that you explain fully why a partnership would be mutually beneficial. Usually a partnership would consist of a quick link swap, and then you are done, however this should not be the case. If the owner of your partnering site usues an instant messenger such as MSN, you should add them and can then share views & ideas with each other. I have found that once you have made a consistent line of communication between a partner, there is much more room for further negotiation, such as join sponsorships and join ventures.

The best way to get members on your forum is to advertise your forum every where also post exchange is a excellent way for new forum owners to kick start their forum by exchanging post with other forum owners.

For everyone with a forum that interests people, but having problems getting others to join because they are seeing that the forum is inactive, active/active exchanges works, once you have the time for it. You can join promotion forums to find people that are interested in doing this exchange with you, or ask someone on the support forum Via private message, once you've be-friend them, Very good

Well, that is what I do. On other forums similar to mine, I advertise a bit here, bit there. Except some of them have strict rules against advertising......
