If you want to design a make money forum, then you may wonder where to start. There are a number of things that you need to consider –
Designing the site
The design of the site is really important. Looks do make a big difference and as well as looking good, the site will also need to be easy to navigate and use. If it is not immediately obvious how to use it or view different parts of it, then visitors are unlikely to stick around. It is important to think about what categories will be covered in it and how it will all work with regards to members using it, registering and starting threads etc as well as moderation. It is good to look at other similar sites and think about how similar and different you want to be to them. It is worth seeing you can find things you would improve about the sites that you could incorporate into yours and features that you do like that you could try to emulate. It is also worth thinking about how you will stand out from other sites though as if you are too much the same, people may just go to those instead.
Building the site
Once you know what you need including in the site, then you can start to build it. You may pay someone to do this for you, find a template to work with or just start from scratch yourself. You will need to think about whether you want something fresh and new, but risk your customers perhaps getting confused or a standard look which will be obvious and easy to use but not unique. Even if you do not build the site yourself, it is important to stay in touch and make sure that you check how it looks and works as it goes along as making big changes after it is finished is much more difficult and could be very expensive. Once it is build you will need to test it to make sure that it works as you expect. Create some profiles and make some posts and see how easy it is to use. It can be wise to start quite a few threads and put answers to them so that it looks like the site s popular and there are some reasons for visitors to stick around and look at the site in detail.
It is really important to make sure that you are able to attract visitors to your site. Many people make the mistake of thinking that if they thin their site looks great, then other people will find it and use it. Sadly it does not work like this and you need to make sure that people are capable of finding your website. There are lots of ways of doing this, some free and many that you will need to pay for. You will need to consider what budget you have and therefore what you can afford to do. It can be worth experimenting with free methods such as free social media pages, listing on search engines and things like that before paying for online and offline advertising. Think hard about who you are targeting and how you can encourage them to visit your site.
