    Forums?

    Hey guys,
    I am just curious how forum earns money? I mean I know from Adsense but other than Adsense.

    VIP membership?
    SEO services?

    I am talking about webmaster forum...

    There are many methods you can use to make money from your forum.

    Some basics include :

    - Premium Membership ( make it differ from regular membership & make sure users wants it )
    - Adsense or other PPC Ads
    - Banner Ads or Link Ads
    - Sell Services related to the forum.

    Big forums earn from memberships and ad sales. Forums which are about high paying niches like webmastering, domain names can earn reasonable amount from AdSense. Other than that it's pretty hard to earn from forum.

    hi,

    to earn money from your forum you need to have a good amount of quality traffic and also returning visitors.

    based on that you can charge for advertisement, premium membership in your forum.

    you can also have a Buy,Sell section in the forum where you can charge for every thread that the user places.

    you can only do the above mentioned things if & only if your forum is popular in your niche. 90% of the forums fail. you need to plan it out carefully.


    kindest,
    abhishek kundu
