    I have started a forum in the tech niche. It is currently sitting at #6 on page one and is getting a little traffic. Only problem is, there is no content (threads) so I think that this is putting alot of people off joining.

    What do you guys think that I should do?

    Any methods?

    cheers guys

    Join to forums in same niche and be active, useful posts, nice downloads and tips etc. After some time put your link in signature.
    Find clean versions of software for tech jobs and tasks, in every .zip or .rar leave text file with info about your forum. Also be active on download forums and warez, and torrents. And go to blogs in the same niche and make everywhere useful blog comments and posts, not spamming but be involved in real conversation. You have to build trust over internet, its kinda not so easy lately.

    If you have vbulletin then there is a top posters mod.

    Now simply offer your top 5 posters a cash reward for quality posts each month

    1st - $100
    2nd - $50
    3rd - $25
    4th - $15
    5th - $10

    For $200 each month your forum will grow in no time. My avatar makes such sense.

    I would also suggest some type of cash reward even if its only for the first month.

    go to postloop and set a minimum of 4.2 points.. and buy points. You can also hire people from here to post in your forum, just pay them well, you will get quality content..
