    Check the B/S/T section.

    Someone over here was selling a pretty cool piece of software that basically creates as many forum accounts as you please and then uses these accounts to post content (questions and answers) scraped from Yahoo Answers.

    But if you want to keep it more realistic then I'm afraid your only options are to either post the seed content yourself (you can create a few different accounts so that it wouldn't look as if you were talking to yourself) or invite some of your friends over to get the thing going.

    Or you could use paid posters but this is seldom a good idea as in 99% of cases you can expect the paid posts to be of extremely low quality.

    All in all, getting a brand new forum off the ground isn't nearly as easy as it may sound. I've done it a few times and even with a fantastic niche, great seed content and not a very shy budget it's always a challenge!

    Go to mturk and hire a bunch of people to post for pennies. Or you hook up with some other people at TAZ - The Admin Zone and cross post to each other forums.

    You can hire people from third world countries to populate your board.

    You can hire a philipino or chinese dude for something like 50$ per month to work full time for posting on your board.
