Message Boards: Promotion

Written by Richard Lowe

All right, now you've createdrepparttar best message board inrepparttar 125164 world (at least in your humble opinion). You've set it up and posted a few things and waited for herds of people to start contributing. You wait and wait. Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months, and still nobody visits your board. What's going on?

Something that is not obvious is that a message board must be promoted just like anything else onrepparttar 125165 internet. In other words, you have to let people know that your board exists and is interesting. I know it seems kind of strange ... you created your board in order to get people to come back to your web site, yet now you have to promote repparttar 125166 board as well?

The first thing you want to do is to link your board to your web site. I know it seems obvious, but still it interesting how many people forget this simple step. In addition,repparttar 125167 link must be in an obvious place, and it's wise to include it on every page of your site.

The next tasks is to start telling people aboutrepparttar 125168 existence ofrepparttar 125169 board. You are looking for contributors, especially early inrepparttar 125170 life ofrepparttar 125171 board. You want to find as many people as you can who will actually contribute torepparttar 125172 community that you are trying to build.

A good place to start is to lurk in other message boards, newsgroups and email discussion lists with similar subjects. Readrepparttar 125173 messages, then start posting your own to get established as someone who is knowledgeable onrepparttar 125174 subject. You should start to determine who is active inrepparttar 125175 board, perhaps make a few friends and gain some respect.

You can tactfully invite people to contribute to your own board. Personally, I think it's very tacky to issue invitations in other boards, newsgroups and discussion lists. I believe it is more preferable to invite people one-on-one in personal emails. Posting an invitation to a board is a great way to getrepparttar 125176 board members to dislike you ... and do it often enough and they may eject you entirely.
