    11 Ways To Increase Forums Activities - Use your forums...


    (Page 2 of 3 )

    Use your forums to announce new changes to your site

    This is a great way to make announcement because people can write their thoughts about the new feature (or article) you've just added.

    Find allies

    There are many webmasters that have the exact same dilemas as yours. Look for sites with empty or low traffic forums and email these webmasters. Offers to join their forums and post a few messages, then ask them if they can return you the same favor. If they want to know why you are bothering them, ask them to read this article.

    Barter

    Even if they don't have a forum, offer to write about their web site or add a link to their site in exchange for some posts.

    Recruit moderators

    As your member population grows, find a few good posters (the ones that post high-quality messages and replies) and ask them if they want to help you moderate the forum. Give them more rights than other users so that they can edit and/or delete other people posts at their discretion. They will help you keep the forum in order, make sure all the rules are followed and help you answers questions. Many people are happy to take on this challenge.

    Do email follow up with your members

    Send email to members that registered, but have not returned in a long time. Tell them what has change since their last visit and why it may be worthwhile for them to return to your site. Try to do this about once every quarter, but do not do this more than once a month. Be sure to respect their rights by including appropriate unsubscribe information and take their name off the mailing list at their request.
