with ease.How to Make Money From Your Community/Forum Based Site1. Affiliate Program
The problem of using affiliate programs to monetize this portal is that there are not many Malaysia based companies that offer credible affiliate programs which is one thing, finding a suitable program that serves SabahRhinos.com demographic is another thing altogether.
I am sure there are some suitable programs out there but one would just have to search harder. Try joining CJ.com and look for programs thatís available for the international audience.
Forums can be profitable but only if you have a lot of members and valuable content Ė not to mention the correct niche that the forum should focus on. 2. Look for Local Sponsors
If you can make private arrangement with local companies and have them sponsor your site, you could be making quite a nice income or so I heard. One good example is cari.com.my Ė one of the most popular Malaysian portals.
Iíve tried this method myself for one of my forums but it didnít work as well as I wish since I didnít have a well recognized brand, and the forum was lacking the communities strength at that time. Does your site offer good value for money and a good returns on investments for potential advertisers? This is the question every portal owner should ask him/herself when looking for sponsors. 3. Seek Voluntary Donations From Members
Although this is not one of my favorite tips, others have used it and achieved some level of success.
The expenses to maintain the SabahRhinos.com have been coming out from your own pocket. Depending on your membersí loyalty, I think itís quite fitting for them to share the burden Ė perhaps as a token of appreciation to you.
For larger donation you could give them something in return Ė a SabahRhinos.com T-shirt to encourage donations perhaps?
That said, I am not saying that you should expect something in return but this is one way to help you keep the site running. 4. Sell Text Link Ads and Sponsors for Forum sub section.
There is money to be made by selling text link ads. You can place the them on your homepage or at suitable section in the forum.
You can also find sponsors for the forum sub-section and place a sponsor ad there. I used to see such arrangement at autoworld.com.my 5. Optimize your AdSense placement.
You could probably improve your AdSense income by optimizing your AdSense placement in the forum. Check out the six AdSense optimization tips for forums. 6. Offer Paid Subscription
If you can come up with premium features, services and content for members you could offer a paid subscription model in return for an access to those premium content. You could charge them a one time fee or on a monthly basis.
This list is in no way definitive but it will point you to the right direction if you are willing to give them a try. Like everything else, making money from a community based portal is not easy. You need tons of traffic, good content and use the correct monetizing methods to succeed.
One of the most successful forums is DigitalPoint.com forum which is making $10,000 a month from Google AdSense alone. Shawn Hogan, the founder shares the revenue with users a win-win arrangement for both parties. He was featured in an article (free registration required) for the New York times last year. Thank you for looking and good luck!!!
