There are many ways to monetize the forum.I would prefer some options like google adsense,affiliate programs or selling advertisement.All of them will work well for if you have a forum with good traffic and members.

Have you tried using adsense where you can place one ad in the first post.

If you don't want to put a bunch of ads up and risk loosing your member base then create a paid membership on your forum. The free members will have access to only so many features and to get the good ones they need to upgrade. Have some bonus material stuff to give away for upgrading or something like that.

Maybe purchase a ebook with resell rights and give it away for upgrading. This just a rough idea on doing a paid memberhip on the forum instead of putting ads up all over the place.

Most people have ad blindness on forums and don't pay attention to the ads. Unless your forum gets super crazy traffic, adsense would not bring in good revenue results.

Sell advertising space is a sure way of earning money right away instead of waiting for adsense to pay you next month or wait to get your commission from a affiliate program you are promoting on the forum. Maybe even start a monthly newsletter for the forum and sell sponser links in that newsletter. To get a sticky thread, you need to pay $$..etc

I'm just tossing out idea's but you need just experiment for the next few months on using revenue generating programs or your own ideas to see which one brings in the better results and then fine tune it even more.
