One of the best ways for a new forum to get off the ground is to participate in a post exchange with other forum owners.

What is a post exchange you ask?

A post exchange is an agreement between two or more forum owners to post in each others forums. You post 50 times in my forum & Iíll post 50 times in your forum. 50 just being a number used for this example, as Iíve seen exchanges ranging from 10 Ė 1000+ depending on how much time the forum owners have available. Some have taken this idea and formed groups of people that exchange posts with other forums.

Regardless of how you set up your post exchange, a post exchange is a great way to increase activity in your new forum and help build momentum.

Find other forum owners and let the post exchanging begin!
