Every single forum owner goes through this point in time where their forum gets inactive and they start worrying and wondering what's going wrong.

I think most of the time, it's just that the administrator doesn't advertise it enough and losses interest eventually. It's a sad situation, but it happens.

I agree, owning a forum takes alot of time and effort from the owner themselves, most people feel that a forum will just take off if they open it and just post on it but it does take alot more than that and alot of advertising. It's like with anything really even with a new small business just opening wouldn't get you anywhere you need a reputation and alot of advertising aswell as plenty of posts on your forum and being around to work on it and give members what they want to see.

You'd advertise here Delighted

I think with enough loyalty, a forum will keep going. However without advertising, it won't progress.

It depends, really.

I used to complain to myself why my forum grew very, very slowly in the beginning. Well, every beginning is usually slow, but then I realized that the niche of my forum is unique that not many people seem to know. That makes advertising, especially in sites like this, didn't yield a very good result. I'll be honest, from lots of advertising forums I've been to, I don't think I got that much results except that being noticed at Google slightly better, I suppose.

I also learned that the best way to advertise is by knowing the circle of your niche. For example, for advertising forums like this, it would be best if you advertise it in other advertising forums like FM. In case of my forum which is a music forum, it would be great if you visit music sites, leave a comment and link to your site, or utilize social networks, telling friends, and such. Get to know audience which may like your genre, that's the correct way of advertising.

As for staying loyal, we can't deny that there is a moment in each admin's life where it's at the lowest; you feel bored and tired doing your work. That happens to me once in a while, At such time I would pull myself back a bit, calm down, and look into other sites, thinking of what I can and should do for my own forum. That's usually how I get my motivation again.
