If this thread is in the wrong forum, I apologize. Wasn't sure where to place it. Okay, my brand new, two day old forum, which hasn't even officially launched yet, is getting visitors but not conversions to members. Do any of you have any tips or suggestions? For example, I wrote an article about Kirlian photography proving love and anger between two people and posted it to my Twitter and Facebook account as a test. In just a few hours the article has over 650 views and for the past few hours now I've had around 30-50 visitors online. Obviously people are sticking around. But only 3 members and still no comments. Are there any statistics about how many visitors turn into members or does the same old 1% rule apply? How does one go from actual visitors to members? And how do I get them to talk?
