Currently, I am working on this new forum site and I would like to know what tips might make a new forum website grow from the beginning point?
It can be very challenging as well as discouraging to put all of energy, investment and idea into creating a forum website and eventually its like no one even knows about it. What do i need to do now? Your tips are appreciated!

Don't create a forum until after you have a large following on your blog, email list etc. The vast majority of new forums fail because they are ghost towns when they first open up. Nobody want't to be a member or post to a ghost town.

Also, consider a Facebook group instead. They can look a lot more active, even when they are not.

Unless you own the generic domain name for a forum you are wasting your efforts.
