How much should I expect ?


I just started a new forum related to internet trading things (buy sell trades ...) and I would like to know how much revenue to expect from a forum, forgetting the fact of my forum subject, how much to expect from any forum and which monetization methods to use ?

Thank you

Well I think you should have asked yourself this before actually starting the forum ?! Coz now to run a forum you need money. There are costs like : hosting,forum software, articles, posters, moderators, prizes to entertain the members, promition etc etc.

Forums can make you money by:

- selling banner ads individually or addind Adsense
- selling premium membership
- sending newsletters of ads to members
- promote affiliate programs
- sell links when your site will have good traffic and PR

I am sorry, but is it the forum from your signature?
There is a special section here on v7n devoted to forum management - http://www.v7n.com/forums/forum-management/ - I am sure it will be useful for you, have a look there.

Fwiw, if I was trying to draw traffic I wouldn't advertise it in my sig as "Biggest Internet Marketing and Online Market Forums", cause when they get there they're bound to notice it has exactly two threads and everything else says 0 threads, 0 posts. Best to not blow your credibility before you start.

FYI, on webmaster forums, people tend to get ad blindness if you put up adsense type ads. Your best bet would be to sell banner ad spots once your forum get's a lot of traffic.

Use this site to do this. http://buysellads.com/
