Forums are obviously very difficult to start up due to their inherent nature of requiring an active user base from the onset to ensure its own success.
I’m trying to start a niche automotive community with Discourse. It’s only been about 5 days, but I can feel that things are constantly being balanced on a thin wire during these initial days.
What’s the best way of rallying members and building the base, short of directly spamming everyone you know on Facebook (I’ve already done that, to an extent). Are there any other ways to advertise?
As far as content goes, I’ve been putting in work to keep the posts going and constantly try to generate interesting threads.
