    Arrow How can you make money from a forum....

    How can you make money from a forum without selling

    advertising? The admin asks people to post often. There is

    no advertising. It's been around awhile. They are not

    presently affiliated with other boards. The admin started a

    2nd site. You have to post once every 90 days or your

    account gets deleted. It's a chat & freeware forum.


    Thanks in advance.

    One way is to offer premium memberships. If you forum can offer a special "VIP" club that gives members access to special features and offers, then you can make money that way. Most forums don't make alot of money, and the money they do make is from advertisements. If you forum is busy, put donation links around the site that can be easily seen by vistors. As always, quality content and atmosphere keeps people around.

    Thanks for replying.

    I was talking about a preexisting forum that someone else owns.

    They do not have pay memberships.

    I was wondering why she wants more posts, when she does not gain any thing from it. She does not have any advertising. I do not see how She can make money from it.

    It's possible admin just wishes to build a large thriving community. Once you get a large community that posts alot, then you can inject services, ads that will bring you money. One of the first steps of building a forum or any website is to get traffic to your site. By having people post alot, it increases the content and thus the presense of your site on the web. This may be why the admin wishes for lots of posting.

    Or maybe she doesn't know what's she's doing lol

    She has 2 other admins. Her staff seems very capable. She has a lot of posts. She started a 2nd board, A graphics board.
