* We have an original thread here.........
 
 
But this will be different and a fresh start.
 
So how would you people go about making it so we get more posters signing up and contributing? Google Ad Words would be good but costs money. Spamming other forums is a no no. Lately i've used Facebook which as worked alright for us. There's got to be more ideas. Whilst we are busy, it never hurts to stand still.

Other than using Facebook, Myspace and Twitter and poaching members from other forums i really dont know what to suggest mate.

Couldnt we try and strike up a deal with a wrestling news site so they would post a advert and a link to the forum on the site? Not sure how that kind of thing works.

Facebook: Works well generally to send private messages to decent wrestling fans because you can pick and choose. Plus there's groups for WWE, TNA, Taz and Mr Kennedy to find people in.
 
My Space: Less restrictions to Facebook but works slower due to all the unnecessary crap people put on their profiles.
 
Twitter: Used it a few times and it might have worked but no way of knowing.
 
Poaching Members: We would be like Vince Mcmahon taking out the territories Tongue
 
Wrestling News Site: That would be an excellent idea if we could find some decent wrestling news sites to ask who don't have a forum.

Didnt we once have a deal like that with Ewrestlingnews.com or am i thinking of someone else? Not sure if they have their own forum now.

As for poaching members its a dog eat dog world! Tongue
In fairness poaching is to strong a word, theirs nothing to stop people posting on more than one forum.

Try www.gerweck.net as they dont have a forum, they use too, but don't anymore and for that I think we need to have posters who actually post good conversations and more lines than one, make sense in there posts and so on.

* We would be like Vinnie Mac taking out the territories one by one until the only place on the internet to post about wrestling is here. Then we would future endeavour posters who don't get over so they have very little options elsewhere to post LOL
 
* The owner of ewrestlingnews.com Frank Sun and me go way back about seven or eight years and lets just say he holds grudges longer than Bret Hart so he wouldn't use us I don't think.

* Be great if we could come to a deal with someone like that. Our new URL would help the situation as well.

I don't believe that www.wrestlingnewsworld.com has a forum. I know its strictly a news site, so perhaps see if you can look into them. I have a feeling though they might not advertise for free.

* Everyones a winner baby that's the truth. Damn you've got me singing.
 
* Yeah we can make it so if someone types in www.tupwrestlingforum.com it redirects to their front news page. In return they put up a forum link on their homepage which redirects to here. Everyone is a winner, the upgrade means we could cope with vast numbers and the new URL will help as well.

* I'll see what they say. No harm in giving them an email to read.

Well... I try helping out. I tell people I know through youtube about the site. And I know alot of wrestling fans on the game I play. I have told a few people about the site. But that is the best I could do. I just go out and anyone who likes wrestling I tell them about this site.

Now... wait. Another thought I had also involves youtube. What if we could get a highly popular youtube wrestling shooter to post links to the site in their description box.... Maybe we can get them to endorse our site, even if they aren't a member... Just a thought.
