    Has Anybody Made a Profit from Forums?

    I have always wanted to start up my own bulletin board. It's a website where once you get enough registered users and build up a community, you can theoretically get some devoted members to moderate and never visit the thing again, earning you a nice passive income. However I know PPC rates are low there, so I'm wondering if anybody has any tips for monetizing a forum and earning some nice dough through one, if at all possible.

    Well since users create the content for you, it is good if you can get it an active place. About the low earnings.. it variates from niche to niche.. Create a webmaster / proxy forum and the earnings will be low. Create a health forum and the earnings will be high

    I have created 2-3 forums in 2008 - 2009 and earned only 50$ from three forums.. and decided to stop them .. you cant get more income without huge amount of active members

    Good luck

    I guess it really depends on what niche your forum is usually if you have some forums it must take a year before you can make more income in it

    I am a bit on the warez scene which some of you might be against,
    but i own my warez forum - very small
    but i earn around about $4 daily from RapidPoints which make
    RS premium accounts then i sell them because all the uploads on site are mine
    and i receive around 500 - 1000 unique visitors daily.

    I used to run a forum in 2007. I made like $100 the whole year. I took it down in 2009. I had a good user base though

    The primary reason for a forum is to promote a product/service or provide support. Thus, the forum is more of a promotional tool than a way to make money.

  10. there are too many forums where users are dedicated to each. i guess it hard to get dedicated users and earn by now. but i have a computerforum run by a local computer association. i didn't put asense to it but the president did. he said he earn 100 dollar after 9months.
