I start a project and run it for sometime and i feel i should close it. One of the main reason i don't get any hits and i really don't do anything for that. It is 100% my fault, but i don't hate stop running a website. Currently running a religious forum and i alone post no one else.
If you can afford, get yourselves a couple of paid posters. It is really cheap these days. $5 for 100 posts or something even worse.
But if you pay them well, content quality will also be good. Even if you hire these $ 5-10 guys, you can make your forum decently active.
Hmm i understand but for a religious forum do you think people will be interested?
Religion sells well than anything. You can sell songs, body wear like chain with divine locket, ring ( for finger ), books and a lot of such things. You can talk about new releases of books related to your religion, new songs that came out etc etc
Another way to do this to is leverage paid posters from Fiverr. The content doesn't matter. However, it takes a while to organically grow, and this could also be related to SEO setup. Can you provide more details ?
