I want to start a forum! Niche : Not decided yet.. but, its would be something that makes me feel good. (not at all a webmaster forum, though) 1. What are the steps to start? As far I know... firstly, you need a vB license. Then, a good template. Then, make some good categories. Then, get vBSEO for good SE traffic. Thats all I know ... any more things to do??? 2. How can I get members? I want some loyal members like I am here at Qdoos. How to get them? I will spend $150 per month for forum posters and from this I might get 2000 posts. 3. What are the total expenses? According to me ... its : vB License = $180 + vB SEO = $150 = $330. Please.... help!!
