I thought it would be a good idea to post this here to let members know what I am doing or plan on doing to help promote the site. Thinking of new ways to recruit people and draw in traffic is an active progress so suggestions are always welcome. Check back periodically if you're interested as I will probably edit this post from time to time with new info
- Google AdWords (I've used this in the past but it is quite expensive maybe because I am inexperienced with setting up campaigns with the right keywords or that is just the nature of the service, I've put this on hold because of the cost)
- Bing Advertising (Very similar to AdWords but I had a $100 credit for Bing that I thought I would use up)
- Advertising on popular camping related websites like blogs (I decided this is worth a try as an alternative and I have been researching and contacting sites that I think would be effective)
- Social Networking
- Recently started posting thread links on Twitter which has gathered a few clicks but nothing significant unfortunately. Hopefully this will improve as our social media following grows.
- Quality Content
- Members have been doing a great job of posting interesting and unique content, keep up the good work guys!
