Making Money From Forums – Net Income Episode 2

Posted by

This week on Net Income the show was purely about making money from forums and other social websites. This show was a little better structured and we started the show with the “Money Minute” with Barry Scwartz of

The Money Minute basically covers what is new ways to make money online. I thought barry would be best for this because he has such a eye on all the forum and blog community. In this weeks Money Minute we covered Google’s new ecommerce product called GBuy, Ebay’s New Contextual Product, and also the position open at Google to be the Adsense Advisor to the forum community.

Also at that time I announced the guest for the June 27th show is Markus Frind. Markus has recently posted a check on his blog for over 900,000$ Canadian for 2 months. Now that is like 25k/day off of adsense… not to shabby.

So Markus will come on and we will take some calls from YOU. Here is your chance to get advice from someone who has built a empire so make sure you call in and ask questions or ask questions in the chat room.

My guest for the show Was Lee Dodd owner of MANY huge forums and I thought he would be a great person to have on the show to talk about making money from forums.

Lee came on and talked abit about his forums then we started taking questions and calls from people.

Lee talked a bit about the various streams of revenue:

Inteletext – Vibrant media
Contextual – Google Adsense and Yahoo Publisher Network
Donation – Paypal donations
Subscription – Paypal and other Subscriptions
CPM Advertising – various
Affiliate Revenue – Lee also likes azoogleads
Direct Text and Ad Links- Various

We broke down each kind of revenue stream and how they integrate into forums. I think this was some realllllly good information for people running forums looking for other forums.

People also asked about what forums we like and dont like. I commented about how I hate phpbb2 and how insecure it is.

There were several people that called in and ask Lee and myself various questions. I really enjoyed hosting the show.

I want to thank Lee. He really did AWESOME JOB.

I think this show went much smoother then the first one. I still suck at times but its getting better. HEY WE HAVENT BEEN CANCELED YET!!!! WEEEEEEE

    Great show yesterday, previously I found forums to generate almost no money but you got me interested again. I went and got myself PHP/Mysql and Vbulletin (What fun it was to set that all up.) and added a forum to my Sportster community. It will take a bit to get it the way I want it but based on the tips you guys offered yesterday i’m very excited to try this again. Thanks for the blog and show.

    Hey, that’s pretty cool how someone can go from being a liar and bullshitter to being a guest on your show, all in under six weeks time. :D

    Well, money doesn’t just appear on your doorstep like magic if you have lots of good and original content. It takes some effort, even with the most successful forums. Even with something as simple as Adsense, I’ve had results on my forums anywhere from $0.25 eCPM all the way up to $40.00 eCPM, it depends on the topic, ad placement, quality of traffic, phase of the moon, etc.

    Shoe, excellent podcast. I really dig your style.

    Yesterday, i listed to your podcast with the guy from PepperJam Search, and your shows are and interviews skillz are getting better and better. Do you listen to a lot of radio because you sound like a natural.

    I have a question about forum software. I am preparing to launch what I hope to be a community driven forum around a U.S. city. I have been using Expression Engine software to manage a few blogs on the site, and am pleased with what they can do.

    I thought I would also use their forum software, but the one drawback is they require users to register before they can post or comment.

    Do you think it’s a good idea to let people post and comment without having to register?

    Since my city is a popular tourist destination, I feel that forcing people to register would hold us back.

    On your show, you mentioned liking vBulletin. Does vBulletin force users to register before they can post/comment?

    I began this discussion to discuss public usable web proxies:

    Which are really anonymous?

    Which can be used with facebook, myspace etc, in other words: are fresh ?

    Which would you recommend?

    Thanks for your help,

    P.S.: In my land, the freedom of speech is somehow constrained, please give me a hint, if you are not sure about your recommendation.

    Hi. I regularly announce this forum. This is the oldest period unequivocal to ask a topic.
    How multifarious in this forum are references Nautical port behind, knavish users?
    Can I bank all the communication that there is?

    1. almir

      I certainly agree with you my friend I am into learning myself from these forums as well. I was always so skeptical when someone else makes money but until they do I’m still skeptical.

    I have recently lost a good amount of weight using acai berry and colon cleanse pills and have created a blog documenting my use of it.
    However, I would also like to try out the Wu-Yi weight loss teas and document my progress with that as well.
    The problem is i have heard some bad things about these teas. Has anyone tried them? Did you suffer from any of the side effects?

  23. HipHopStar

    Hey I’m new and I guess this is as good a place as any to see if anyone knows of a good loss mitigation training course?

    I keep hearing about people making tons of money becoming foreclosure consultants.
    So, If you have any info or you have purchased a good course, please share. I’m retired and looking for a home based business that I can earn a decent income with.

    Sorry for this noobie question. Could you tell me what this blog skin is? I really love it. Or is it custom one, perhaps? I think it will be a great option for adsense as well. I’d really appreciate it if you are able\will tell me about this. Thanks.
