    A forum is no different than any other site. If you want to attract (and retain) visitors, you simply need to have something unique (that people want) that other sites don't have.

    Hi John,

    Some advertising methods:

    SEO,
    Google Adwords,
    Facebook Ads
    Facebook page & Twitter page (linked to your forum).

    It is important to have good content and a forum with activity with recent posts. Any newly found reader will only join if they see there are others interacting etc.

    Also submit your forum to directories. A list of directories you could try are:

    theforumfinder
    forumrating
    theadminzone
    big-boards
    forumvirus
    ukforumdirectory
    zetaboard.

    Sorry I can't post URLs yet.

    Thanks

    Advertising is premature if you don't have something that will keep the users on your site yet.

    When was the last time you ended up on a site, and then returned after that because they had a "quality article"?
