    In d starting, dont focus on earnings but to maximize ur forum's exposure! Provide Top Notch help tp people, this will increase d amount of active members, do SEO and get tonz of traffic and when ur forum becomes famous, u can do Affiliate Marketing or companies may even contact u to place their advertisements! (just have an advertise here, link to make it more frequent)

    Social media is your choice.

    Invest some money get some ads up.

    Also, do some SEO on your site, ranking helps.

    Terminate the project. Your earnings hardly cover the yearly renewal costs, leaving hosting and value of your time aside. There is one thread in the Stand Back Up section which I suppose is the main topic of your site. Said thread was created over a year ago and has 19 replies. Each post is followed by a giant Share bar, that noone ever uses. There is little to no value provided, yet there are ads. The overlay at the top of the site is confusing and does not match. I clicked on the speakers several times, expecting some kind of voice or sound, seeing this is a disability forum.

    Do not invest in SEO or social media unless you like to waste money.

    This guy is telling the truth, is this site a passion or something or are you really looking to make some decent income? If it is the latter please don't waste anymore time on this site and move on.
