I launched a forum in May 2016, and I am still building it up with what I consider to be quality contents. I know from Google Analytics that I have visitors every month, but it is quite difficult to have anyone joining the forum and posting new threads or responding to existing threads. Of course I would like to have people joining the forum, but I came to realize that my posting on the forum seems to encourage users to visit the main site, so in and of itself, it is useful for that purpose. Also, I found that the forum provides me with a more flexible means of publishing contents that don't fit the main site's structure, thus helping me to round-up as it were my content offer. Would anyone care to share any insight from your own experience or from the experience of others you might know of?
