    So I am wondering what do you guys think of my plan my new forums. I am right now in the process of starting a PC tech forum :). The domains I bought are techaidforums.com and techaidforum.com. So what do you think of the name or should I go with something else? I will have the voting post add on so if people have questions and others can answer it can help them get a good reputation. One rank I will have is Expert. To get expert you must be active and have helped allot of people with questions. Their will be a sponsor rank but I am not really in it for the money, I am more wanting to help people :). I myself enjoy helping others with tech issues so I hope this will make me and other help others with tech issues.

    I will also have xenporta installed to post updates and post new tech that is out their in the world. I will also have tips such as how to be more safe on the internet, how to take care of your computer, and how to improve its performance. I probably will also have a YouTube channel so I and others can put videos/tutorials on how to fix peoples issues :)

    Also if you have any other suggestions feel free to post them :)

    Hundreds of tech support forums out there. Which is both good and bad for you. Good because it's an idea which is tried and tested and definitely has a large audience and sponsors. So you do not need validation. Bad because initially you will get absolutely no traction as a new forum.

    You will have to have immensely valuable content, prove yourself very unique, and employ very smart marketing. It is not easy, and will need a tonne of work, but definitely CAN be done...

    And all the best.

    Yea that's the only wall I see in my way. Since there are so many sites. mine may not be known. I am going to try to do my advertising through social media since I have done similar tricks and most of the time they work. I guess if worst comes to worst I can just start up something else :)

    Unless you have a method of marketing, starting a new forum is a thankless task. SEO is a tough game and social marketing can be a lot of work.
