Default How to advertise a local forum

We are trying to get the word out on a local area forum. We have done some SEO, search advertising and WOM, but we just don't seem to have enough exposure to create a sufficient amount of sustainable traffic.

We are considering an ad in a free local family magazine and bookmarks/fliers/business cards at local businesses and welcome aboard packages (real estate offices, welcome committees, chamber of commerce).

Any other ideas or thoughts?

Default How to get more forum traffic...

I'd start posting on Houston craigslist...and get your website address out there somehow.

Tell people they can post their resumes, advertise jobs for free, etc.

Go to other Houston forums and post there...just google houston forums...get active on other mom forums

Post questions in your forums or start controversial threads like "Obama is dumb for saying he wants to kick a$$...what do you think?"

Start threads on your forums asking peole to lsit their favorite....book, ice cream, etc

Highlite Houston businesses like best places to eat, best flower shop, best place to get your hair done...blah blah blah

Dont just sit back and wait for others to comment, start the comments yourself and make it controversial...that keeps people interested and coming back...
