8 Ways to Bring Up A Community’s Activity

Author: ZiveemanMay 7th, 2009

A member (I’ll call member A)  recently asked on another forum on how to bring up activity. Another member (member B) replied to make a bunch of new topics to stimulate conversation. When member A replied that he tried that and it doesn’t work, member B said that sorry, but chances are that the forum won’t come back to life. Well, that’s absolutely not true.

There’s many different ways to bring up activity without you having to create a bunch of new topics, which can frankly be quite boring and repetitive.

So I present to you 8 ways to bring up your community’s activity without you having to create a bunch of new topics.

  • Do post exchanges.
  • Have a contest with a cool prize.
  • Revamp your forum, if it’s been awhile since your last revamp.
  • Make a survey to learn about your members and their view on your community.
  • Change or re-start your advertising strategy.
  • Encourage inactive staff to post again.
  • Send out an e-mail to everyone.
  • or, just WAIT. Sometimes there’s an external factor that’s keeping members away, such as real life. Sometimes it’s affecting more than one member at a time. For example, at this point in time, Advanced Placement Exams are happening which could explain the hiccup in forum activity. Waiting it out could solve it all.

There you go. Thoughts?
