    We need more users here on the forums and on the website in general. I hate to see interesting, engaging articles being written every week, with only one or two comments (if any) from readers. I was thinking, you guys should advertise the forums on the discord server, maybe pin a link to the forums on the server so that everyone can see it. Perhaps you could ask Pepouni to shout you guys out on Swissbeatbox, since he has a massive audience and could definitely bring in a lot of users.

    You could also try and get more beatboxers to record shoutout videos for your YouTube channel – that type of video normally gets a lot of views coming in. Or you could do more online tournaments – the 2016 Discord tournament was awesome, maybe you could do something like that every three months. I think that would get more active users online.

    Other than that, keep up the good work guys. I love the content you guys put out, and I think it’s a shame you don’t get as many views/users. I really want to see this place grow, I think that as a community it is really important that we have critical analysis and commentary about beatboxing, as well as a place to come and talk to each other and get advice.

    Hey kbbx, thanks for the feedback! As always we appreciate the support.

    I wouldn’t worry too much. Though it may not seem like it publicly, we have had hockey stick growth month over month in the past year in terms of users and viewership. The truth about the beatbox community is that we’re all pretty comfortable keeping the conversation on social media these days. Lack of comments/ forum posts does not necessarily equal lack of users.

    March was yet again a record month for us. Though Swiss dominates on social and YouTube, we get about ~800% more website traffic than they do. And our reach/ engagement rivals Swiss on Facebook despite our tiny page size.

    Thanks!
    -Nate

    That’s great to hear, I’m glad the site is doing well. That being said, I wish the forums were more active. I find the opportunity to see other people’s opinions and in depth analyses of topic and battles really useful. I hope that as the userbase continues to grow, more people will find and use the forums. I find them more useful for detailed discussion than other forms of social media, and I’d like to see them grow.
