    Do you have any suggestions as to ways we could get free promotion and publicity for this forum. Please post your ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    Thanks!

    One of the best way is submit your forum to http://www.big-boards.com. Unfortunately, it require at least 500000 posts.
    And sorry to say it is hard to get free promotion unless the forum member helps on promoting the forum

    Promote your forum at Digital point forum and you can try face-book ads.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I've been a member of DP for quite some time now and will do some promotion there soon.

    Any further ideas or suggestions would be most welcome.

    You could buy ads on adsense or PTC sites to get some clicks from members. You could buy ads at active sites.

    Free?

    Put out blog comments in your niche with anchor text that is the keyword u want to rank for in Google. This will help get more free targeted traffic from blogs and Google. It's free yet time consuming.

    Hi Fergal. A way I learned to get some great promotion is to do it via a library. If you make some small cards or post it notes and go into the library, casually put one in random books or books you think attract a lot of attention. 9 times out of 10, the person that reads what you write is going to be curious and visit BAF.

    That's a very interesting suggestion TheNova, thanks for that, I will consider it and may do it at my local public or college library.

    Thanks ace and GamingOn, I have done a little bit of both of those in the past.

    How about Adwords target terms like free business advice? Maybe do some promotion on Linkedin as well.

    PTC sites? Those are a waste. I mean, they will just click on your ad because they are getting paid for doing it so it will just increase BAF's bounce rate.

    Hi Fergal and all

    I haven't been around for a while as I have been busy with a social network we have created. We have 155,000+ members and relaunched a few days ago with tools for businesses to promote their companies/products/service for free on the site by creating a public page. You may want to add BAF and, of course, BAF members are welcome to add theirs. The Public Pages also have the ability (once your business is verified) to create competitions directly from your page which can help promote your business. Here is an interview I did explaining how it works - http://hf-markets.com/2011/08/interview-with-koiniclub-coo/ and here is a brief presentation from the site - http://www.koiniclub.com/?do=business - if you join please feel free to friend me just do a search for DBW.

    Look forward to seeing any pages you create.
