    Hey there ,

    So listen people ,

    I have made a goal to reach ~10,000 steady UV a day by 13/2/2011 to my forum!

    Problem is that I have not finished the forum ,According to my plans it will be totally ready for traffic in 1/2.
    And I really really want to achieve my goal ! , I filled my forum with threads ,And have ready moderators to help people ,and a really awesome forum!
    My forum contains different subjects such as Gaming , Coding , Webmasters
    I won't mention my url cause moderators may not like that.

    I am ready to invest whatever (even 10k$) to achieve the goal I have written, Is there a hope ? Please help me !(I will pay you if u want)

    So how can I bring that much targetted traffic ?

    Media buys - I am contacting forums and other websites for banner spaces , will that be enough ?!
    Forum posting - Purchasing xrumer blast (as threads) to bring traffic , by putting a signature or somehow mention my forum in threads .. Good idea?!
    Youtube - Making shitloads of videos , using softwares to download & reupload many man videos about MMO games ..etc , How much will that help?
    Purchasing sticky threads - I may purchase sticky threads on other related forums , what do u think?!

    Any other ideas ? Please help me achieving my goal - I am ready to pay whatever!:fing26:

    Not to kill your dreams, but it's not my impression that a forum is a big money maker so do think it through if you're going to invest 10k in this.

    I think something that might bring you traffic is if you review new games etc (if your forum is primarily about games) and then watermark the video with your forum URL. Think, what would get you to a website for your specific niche. I think you might have a hard time getting 10k UV/day from above mentioned methods and I do also think you might end up overpaying compared to what it brings in.

    A suggestion to monetising your forum might be email marketing, so that when they sign up they allow you to send them a weekly email or so.. Never tried it but i think it could convert if you include a review and understand how to sell.. Hope my suggestions helped a tiny bit.

    Ya I agree don't bother.

    I would spend 1/10th of that on adwords though. Target all relevant keywords.

    Keep going on because you are the only one who know exactly pros and cons of this project.
    Like sb said above, i recommend you to rank high for some main keywords + reviews in tails, then keep these organic traffic by all means you have. With 10k investing, i am sure you can get at least traffic of 10k exact search monthly. So the problem here is how you keep those coming back. It depends on your content and how profitable you bring to people.

    BTW, out of topic, can you show me how you can get 4,294,967,295 thanks. I got ambition to get 10 bil thanks.:D

    well i must agree with goodseoman and sb.

    the first thing ill do is to focus on get ranked 1st on many keywords as i can related to your niche of course,

    you will not complete your goal in the time you mentioned but at least it can save you some cash.

    if you still decide to go with your agenda i would think out of the box i mean to get 10k a day in less than two weeks its quite a goal, so i would do some sneaky stuff i would try to contact the top forums in your niche and try to suggest some bribe :) i mean offer them some $$ to redirect their traffic for X days to your site. like mentioned here forums are not a big money maker so they might take your offer of course that your forum have to be better then your competitors and im not sure it will get you the 10k UV a day but its something that i think its worth trying.
