Keep the focus, because some of them can help your forum in the long run. There are 4 tips for activities and 4 tips for activities that are not to do. What should I do Advertising for your forum on social media is a great way to become more attractive. Great websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Blogger are the perfect ways to attract a small number of users. Other forums that promote websites can be a great way to attract users, but the use of forums or social media brings only a small amount. If you are still in school and have set up a forum, then you are well done. Because 1. They are still in school and 2. They still have something to do after their homework. So when you open a forum at school, tell your classmates about it. Ask your friends to join, and if so, consider whether you want to set them up as an administrator or keep them as normal users. If you are in a club, inform some club members about it. This might interest you to join your forum, but many clubs are not very big. Depending on which club you are in, the number of members can vary. Try to optimize your website to get the best place in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This will help you get to the top sites faster if someone is looking for something related to your forum. Something like Google's Webmaster Tools is a great way to do that. Well, since we've looked at what you can do to get your forum out there, we move on to what you should not do. What not to do Do not spam posts, texts, blogs, or photos that encourage people to join. This could turn people off. Just send posts from time to time, and users will begin to curl up. When you're still in school, do not worry about classmates all the time. Even your friends. In this way, classmates will be annoyed with you and may begin to annoy you or bully you. So if your classmates say no, accept them and find others. Do not buy ads when you start your forum. If a few days have passed and nobody has been visited, ads could play a significant role. If you want many users, you'll need to spend a large amount of money on advertising to publish your forum. Do not abuse search engine results. When ads, posts, and links to your site appear over and over the Internet, you'll look like a beggar who only asks to be teasing and bullied. If users are constantly finding the site, they may log in and flood the site with hate mail, explicit pictures, and other garbage that is difficult to moderate and may destroy your site. Hopefully you can use these tips to promote your forum much better. May your forum be big and strong.
