Forums play a very important role in discussing some topics. Apart from discussion, you will be able to get answers for your questions. There are so many forums available online and they all created with two intentions. The first intention is to create a place where people can share and discuss news, information etc. The second intention or the primary intention is to make money with the forums.
When I first registered myself in forum I thought it as a best move from me because I was able to get answers for my queries from other members of the forum. As days passed, I got few questions inside me – ‘What’s the reason for starting the forum’. When I asked this question to my friends say told me – ‘The main reason for starting forums is to share and discuss’. I agreed with that point, but still something itched me inside.
Definitely the forum owner must have invested lots of money in design, web hosting and many other things required to start a forum. Then, how come the owner forum able to manage the cost of all those things without charging us anything. After thinking deeply, I found the answer that the forum owners provide free service to us to get more visitors to their site and they make money using the traffic of the forum.
Once a forum receives enough traffic, then there are lots of ways to make money from it and I am going to list few ways below.
