    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!!

    The easiest way to run a good forum is to enjoy what the forum is about , make the niche something you really really know about and love, i first start out with my tottenham forum, because i never got bored and never gave up on it its become a massive success.

    VbSeo isnt a must have, the vbseo sitemap is good though because it updates for you, but that can be added with out having vb seo.

    VB isnt even a must have, Phpbb can do a good job but you just have to spend a bit of time to get everything installed.

    I would agree you need a monthly budget, but i personally dont think paid posters are really worth it, maybe a small amount to start with but not in the 1000's every month, spend that money on advertising, but make sure you can advertise in the successful adverts everymonth

    If you pay $20 for 300 posts. Then, $150 for more than 2000 posts. :yes:
