Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I started my forum april 2004.it is not english.it is about all aspects
of health and medicine.now I have 10k daily and it is growing.90%
of my users are from my country.10% from 100 countries.
my problem is I don`t have income from my forum at present.google
doesn`t supports our language.banner advertisement is not active.
do u have any idea to monetize my forum ?
I see some big and papoular health and well being websites that finance with advertising and sponsorships.but i havn`t succeeded to get them as yet.I see they don`t have online shop. it seems they don`t like to have it regarding they have huge traffics
I will think about sell the goods...but I guess it will not simple and I don`t know it influences progress of my site or not.
how about creating one private forum like here to get money from users
for the ones whom like to have better services. do you think it will
work for health and medical forum too ?
Then put your shoes on and walk down to your local real - not online - pharmacy and ask them if they'd like to advertise in that spot.
Give them a price that's competitive with a similar advertisement in a newspaper or business directory.
Another thing I see often enough, is an empty banner space that says "you can advertise here!", which links to a page where they can contact you. With so many visitors, some of them may be interested in placing an ad on your site.
My advice is still to sell some real products! Compared with sale of tangible goods, advertising revenue can be instable and unpredictable.
Better: Do both. Diversify your revenue.
