This is for tips and discussion. Earning money from forums is a little more difficult than earning money with blogs and the like, so how do you earn money from your forum? I will start off by letting you guys know how I earn from my forums. The first thing I do is add a V.I.P. group, or different upgraded memberships, that people pay for to unlock certain features. Next I'll make all links on my site adf.ly links(this can be taken away by purchasing an upgraded membership). Then I'll implement AdSense ads within posts and or in the header.
