Oct 3rd ride out is a good place to begin. Get some small fliers made, go around the bikes at mat bath and then mfn.

I could always put some flyers next to the exotic postcards that advertise services in the local telephone box.

on a serious note you could always ask people to put a link in their signature on other forums they are on e.g mcn, riff raff, bikers nite forums etc.

i think search engines search off key words when searching so you need to tag these in . at work our website is cotswoldstone.com which obviously comes fairly close to the top when people search "cotswold stone".

There are 2 ways to promote it via internet and via word of mouth (local area).

The search engines come and visit you! oh yes, there are yahoo, google and bing bots and they update their directory that way. You see them in the list of names online from time to time.

You can search the help forum for questions like these as they've been asked hundreds of times. http://help.forumotion.com/

Set up a facebook group, people on fb are always keen to join bike groups and then get them to join the forum from there.

Ask friends to put your forum in their status lines.

As already suggested people can put the forum in their signatures etc if allowed and interested on other forums.

Is it just you running this forum or would you have mates that can post on other forums?

I might mention it on a couple of girls forums whether they join has to be seen as a lot of them are not that interested in 'mixed/male dominated' forums.

Have you decided on a 'catchy' name for your forum or is that it?? Laughing

I have done most of what you have suggested Laura, Has for posting on other forums i dont think it is fair to ask as they are bike forums too :| If/when things get bussy i will sort out moderators to help , Dont really want to go changing the name at the mo. but would think about it if this really takes off,
Thanks for your advice no1
