Hi,

Well you have to do some optimization to your site by using good niche keywords, do some free directory submissions and use it's link in your signatures on different forums where you are active member as you started here.

You can also put some promotions for posting other people in your forum like some incentives or gifts for good posts. Initially you can start some good attractive threads.

All the best :)

Word of mouth, talk to yourself a lot, and don't get frustrated when people don't answer. Truthfully, I think you spent money on a forum script that is going to be virtually worthless to you.

You can create one viral report . Get some traffic from ebay , article writing. You can even do banner advertisement.

there are many other options. You just have to take some concrete action.

Not to mention , its really hard to promote forums.

ahaha what you've done is already one strategy, nice one...

it is really hard to promote a forum but what you really should be doing is to continue optimizing your site, do some free ads, link building, getting your keywords rank... remember optimizing a site really is a long term business...
