Should You Build a Forum?

I used to do that with every website thinking I would somehow magically capitalize on site traffic but it never turned out that way. It turns out I missed one simple detail: ONLY BUILD ONE FORUM! That’s like the golden rule of starting a forum.

I got it from reading this:

  • awesome guide for building a forum!


The key question you should ask yourself is:

  • Can I build a profitable forum?


Forums take time and money to run so if you’re not going to be profitable, it’s quite difficult to have a successful forum after you pay for hosting. Some thoughts for my website:

  • Hmmm, I can definitely build a forum to promote my products. (Also enhances and strengthens the community, builds material for new traffic.)
  • I can think of 1 forum to start with, which then splits to 3, and then later to 4.
  • Do I have to do this now? Are there other ways I can grow my community first? (YES)
  • Yes, I’ve got more products to build and release.
  • Ok, so I guess I’ll build a forum later.
