The first thing is to not join another site and try to promote your site. That comes off as you trying to steal members and is a slap into the face to me or any other site owner who has put a lot of work into building a site.

I can tell you the biggest things are patience and persistence. This site didn't flourish overnight. It took five years for these boards to get to this point and eight for the main site. You have to get some activity going at first, even if it's just friends and family. Then it makes it more attractive to potential members.

Google to find some articles on promoting a site. And use forums like http://www.theadminzone.com/forums to help you. And don't start off with a zillion boards. Start with 2-3 and only create new ones when there is a need and they will be populated.
