In today’s world, there is usually up to 100 new promotion forums popping up on the internet every day! Promotion forums come and go faster than regular forums for some reason that admins are yet to comprehend. New forums receive very little, to no traffic at all in their first month of opening; (so services containing links are very useless and will turn the member off to not requesting the service.)
Promotion Forums suffer because they are no different from the rest. I have seen a few forums that add a special touch. Poorly thought out forums consist of everything Forum Promotion has such as Social Ads, Banner Ads, Signature Ads, Packages, etc. My favourite line is “Dare to be Different.” Forum Promotion has put a lot of time into making itself unique, so why copy it? Develop your own unique services and a different way to carry out those services to make your promotion forum larger, better, and more professional/successful than it was before. Uniqueness is important if you want to be successful at a time when there is so much competition around. You need to stand out from the crowd and give users a reason to join your forum, against the other new promotion forums that are opened daily.
I hope these first few tips help you in your quest of building a successful and active promotion forum. This series will cover Admin Dedication, Dull Services, and more! Stay Tuned!
