Starting a new forum, how did you get yours off the ground?

So my current site has been around for about 15 years and we built traffic organically but we also had a core team of mutually interested people in a vacant niche.

Now with my current idea, there is still a fairly big opening in the specific niche, but I am curious as to how anyone who has recently built up a forum and traffic have gone about getting their initial traffic and get their forums going?

Talk to people in your niche, find out where they hang out, what do they want and give it to them on your forum. Seems simple but is actually a lot hard in practice.
