Hi All,

I run a very new IM forum www.martforum.com

It is a PR 3 site and very new. I wish to make it a great one soon.

Tell me few things that will enable me grow it within months.

Thank you.

Logo is missing on forum. Also you can remove the ads for now. Just focus on marketing the forum and get genuine people on board to join the forum such as moderators etc. You need to add your photo on your profile. That will keep trust with your visitors.

Get on to twitter and facebook and create some viral topic which would get you in return with genuine members on the forum

I like colors on your forum but you need more efforts to bring more activities for your forum by promoting it on search engines or other quality sites like this webmastersun.com.

One big note is your forum doesn't have a responsive design thus I have difficulty in viewing it on my mobile devices

Alright, I will work on the traffic. It is just less than a month old.

I have taken notice of the responsive design thing. I will look into it.

Can you recommend a design for mybb or xenforo?

I plan to move the forum to xenforo shortly.

Thank you.

The site itself looks okay, not stellar, but okay.

My advice for launching a new forum is to first assemble (recruit) a team of experienced people who are very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Ideally you want to have a dozen or more people right from the start. You can start with less, but it will take you a lot (lot) longer (probably years) to get the forum really cranking.

The idea behind forming a team from the start is so that you will have enough people who can contribute good advice and high level discussion right from the start. And it will allow you to have some real activity and lots of good content right from the start. Those two characteristics will make new visitors stick around and join your forum once they discover it for the first time.

If you don't have high level discussions and if you don't have an active community when they first land there, then they are less likely to stick around or come back for more at some other time. You want to suck them in and hook them right away.

Make visitors feel good about themselves. Make their experience on your forum as fun and enjoyable as you can make it. Then they will want to come back more often and be active.

I don't think it is worth promoting your forum much at all until you get that core team in place and make them moderators. Without that core team in place, a huge percentage of traffic you get to your site will simply bounce.

Since your forum was an internet marketing forum, I would suggest you learn the design of webmastersun.com to make your forum better. It looks good with me but colors should be changed. In other words, I don't understand meaning of your logo.

Love the design.

I would change the banner colors to fit in with the theme. Position the facebook widget at the top of the site, since not so many people scroll down to the bottom of the page.
And add the McAfee icon to the bottom center of the forum.
