Try google pay per click! I hear there's a secret backdoor so you don't have to pay for them!

1. Make some ads, be flexible. 468x60px, 125x125px and 120x600px banners will cover you. Then members can advertise the site and not just you!

2. Try a competition, if you have $5 in the bank, make a posting competition like "make 20 posts to get in the running to win a domain name". Its cheap and effective.

3. Do some self promotion, every forum, put your forum in your sig. Post banners up around work/school or around your town.

4. Find something unique. Make a super computer or something that will attract people. Then submit to digg, stumble, del.ici.ous and google!

5. Go to an admin forum like adminfusion.com and do some link exchanges. (link exchanges mean backlinks, backlinks mean better pagerank, better pagerank means more people)

6. SEO your website. Look up mod_rewrite on google and try it yourself. Or i do it for phpbb3 and normal websites for $5 a page (just saying, you dont have to)

Please rep if i have helped you and ofcourse, reply or PM me. id love to help!

Okay well Msn Muck you have given me lots of ideas and i am very great full.

I shall start working on some banners and then i will get some of the staff/members to do some advertising.

I have only really submitted my site to goggle so i shall submit it to digg, stumble and del.ici.ous and I'm just signing up to adminfusion.com, do you have a user there as i will put it down for my referrer.

And I'm looking into vbseo but i think its a bit to much to pay at them moment.

And you have help me a lot Msn Muck

Cheers

A forum will not spring to life overnight. Be careful what you do in other forums. If you throw up ads in other forums you may just get shown the door for spamming. Talk to the admins about doing link swaps. You'd be surprised at how many people will click an affiliate link.
Talk to Buzz about vbseo.
