You need to use every marketing tactic in your disposal to bring about more hits to your site. Consider doing the following: - For every thread you start, or your members start [that is, if you like the quality of the thread]. Tweet about it, use hashtags where it is relevant to subject at hand. For example, if you have a thread about Tupac's album - tweet about it with his hashtags - the point that you're doing is targeting THAT niche, that market. If you have a thread about Two and a half men - tweet about it by using "Charlie Sheen" or #Sheen. One thing about marketing is that you're vying for eyeballs. Repeat after me: Eyeballs. ESPECIALLY if your favorite show, music CD, or other entertainment stuff is trending on twitter. But you have to work at it. - Facebook is a search engine, whether you realize it or not. So, when you post a link, do the link FIRST before anything else... When you're done posting the link and the excerpt is there... Piece together a sentence for your link; like this: Lil Wanye is going to Wrestlemania! [the link is here] He's going to be singing at the grandest stage of all. You need to think about your marketing strategy from every angle. These two I have shared with you today has net me about half of the visits that I accumulated.
