Here are 6 tips to help you manage your forum in the best way possible.

Properly prepare the creation of your forum

First, watch existing forums: how do they work? How often are new posts published? How are these posts moderated, managed?
Next, identify your goals: experience/tips exchanges, development of a community of users...
SiteW Premium and Pro packages allow you to create a forum in just a few clicks. Pro packages can also create subforums, thanks to which you can create different topic categories in order to help you get organized.

Promote your forum

Just like for your website, you will have to promote your forum: use your relationship network, feature your forum on your homepage (possibly with a temporary specific banner)...

animate your forum
Manage your posts

Greeting every new user of your forum may seem elementary but it is essential for everyone to feel welcomed and valued. Try to answer every post. As a moderator, you will have to find your right place in the discussions: you should remain discreet but also boost the users' exchanges.
You will have to ask open-ended questions and propose discussions on various issues (that may be different from the main topics of your website). For example, music, news, movie... But you should also be able to bring the focus back to the main topic when needed.
You should also plan your posts (topics and publication dates). SiteW can help you with this task, when you create your forum. Indeed, Premium package allows you to add one subforum and Pro package allows you to add an unlimited number of subforums, in order to help you manage your posts.

Finally, try to be funny and friendly, because you must remember that friendship can grow quickly on the Internet (especially on forums).

Moderate your forum

Do not hesitate to send private messages to offensive users to tell them to calm down and that discussions will be more helpful if they stay courteous. Regularly remind everybody of the forum rules. You can also write a Charter of Good Pratices.

Adapt yourself and try to be proactive

You can create a section for improvement proposals - for your forum and/or your website.
Remember to update your forum: add a file, delete an outdated post, modify the title of a post, etc.

Keep users coming back to your forum

Feature the most read topics of discussion and/or the topics linked to the latest news (in specific newsletters for example). You can also call in contributors.

Technical issues
The most common problems and also problems caused headaches for administrators team's technical forum. As noted above, most of the forum in Vietnam are spontaneous, so funds remain in the early stages is often caused by the admin pocket money. Therefore, either you should plan before funding operations a year, or your big idea will die prematurely before he could bring any success. The annual rent amounts host of a forum midrange will fluctuate from 1 million - 2 million.
In addition, the hacker attacks is also a factor that many forums must soon "retired from the game". The most common form is now the form of denial of service attacks (DDoS) or cause flooding (flood) server systems with virtual information. This is the most dangerous form of attack, because at the moment do not have any method to prevent DDoS effectively. Moreover, DDoS often take place in a very long time.
Therefore, if you want to ensure a long future for their management forum, the problem set social relationships for hackers "black hat" or reserve specific alternatives during forum DDoS equipment is essential.

The ability of the board
This is the second most important factor in determining the success or failure of a forum. To be a good board, the selection of moderators, supermoderator (mod / SMOD) must be taken seriously right from the newly established forum. Not just that mod and smod enthusiasm often given voice to the members, and must have a positive attitude towards the forum they charge. In certain cases, administrators need to understand the specialized knowledge to guide content development for the forum. And we also have the case mod / smod to sacrifice personal interests for building content with the admin forum.
Affable, energetic, polite personality as well as the need for administrators. During the forum, a team of mod / SMOD is representative of management forces, therefore, they should have the appropriate behavior for members. They have to know the orientation activities, preventing bad actions, and arbitrate conflicts between members.
 best security, mod / smod behalf admin is building a community of forums for public forum no lack of links between members that can survive long. Therefore, mod-smod is the man who is thoughtful, skillful diplomacy and cool head before the game against breaking of the members. Who told mod is easy to do?
 
Content appropriate orientation
There is a good topic is not enough to prove that your forum has a right development direction. The issue depends on how you develop the concept on how to properly and turn out the contents do not really fit. Some newly established forum too often taking on the content, while building subcategories to 40-50 on the board. The result is that most of this forum are "premature death" right from the first stage of launch.
Too many categories of content will lead to a shortage of high-quality personnel to manage the content on, inadvertently creating uneven development between the various categories. Also, too many categories will cause "dilution" of the content, and if this situation continues for a long time, the member will quickly leave your forum, by the knowledge value they receive no matching demand.
After successfully building a theme, administrators should anticipate adding other development plans, in case the first plan failed or replace existing old topic for a long time.
 
How to present relevant content
Content presentation here includes using appropriate interfaces with the concept of the forum, the presentation of the billboard, the support component of the forum. There are a number of forums have failed right from the first stage while presenting an interface that's too bad, or is inconsistent with the object that the administrator user oriented.
Presentation advertising content accordingly also very important: too many ads will be offensive to members, sometimes cause the forum. But too little advertising will not guarantee funding for these activities. So in this case advice for you is to consult the opinion of veteran admin, as well as the opinion of the member.
 
advertisement
Forum you can satisfy all four conditions mentioned above, but will forever not be successful, if you do not understand how to promote their products to the right audience appropriate users.
The popular way of advertising now includes the "reported" on the launch of the online community forum to another, using social networking, messaging methods directly or through the event ... all all depending on the specific situation. But before making the promotion, make your forum has successfully built up a certain topic.
