Ideas for Traffic

I assume that the site doesnt have a marketing budget.  Quite frankly I dont want to be the only one who comes to visit the site either.  I know the goal is to make money with the forums, but your not going to do that UNLESS you have traffic, and your not going to get traffic and usage unless you market. 

So here is what I think.  First stick the Google Ad Words banner back up on top of the site.  Lets face it, ad words is the money maker unless your going to start a business that ads value to the site.  I say follow KISS and just have google ad words.  Second, we need to figure out what the exact target market for this site is, and then we need to make this forum meet that exact market.  So....... lets take me as an example of the target market.  Im a 20 something with an entreprenuerial streak 50 miles long, I have a web based side business, I work full time, im web/internet savvy, I desperately want to be a successful business person and only work for myself.  I can't afford to start a brick and mortar business, and I cant afford to hire some hotshot web designer to design a site for me.  Im 100% self taught as far as web dev,  programming , business, and marketing. 

This is me, and if Im the target market for this site, then we need to change some of the structure up to make it more relevant to the targat market, what do you think?

I will help you out as much as possible.  But you REALLY need to figure out WHAT your demographic is.  Only you can do this, because only YOU know were you want this site to go.

I would personally like to see a forum dedicated to small business uses for the web and web dev for small businesses.
