I launched my site just over 1 month ago, so far I have had over 400 members sign up and it's growing between 5 and 10 members a day. The site does other things other than have a forum but it's the forum I want to develop.
I have hardly any posts a handful of members have posted and I always reply and constantly check to make sure no posts go unanswered. Can anyone else offer any suggestions on how to encourage more postings?
I have looked into paid postings but that doesn't really appeal, I'd rather grow a genuine community. Anyhow it's quite a specialist site so I doubt I would get useful postings.
Can anyone share their experiences on how long it took to get regular postings? Am I being too impatient? What ratio of members to posters can I expect?
