Monetizing Online Forums is a practical guide to generating revenue from forums in an ethical way that respects your community and members. It is not about squeezing out every last possible dime from forums, but using methods that are appropriate and help to ensure the long-term stability of a forum. Monetization is not appropriate for some forums, but vital to the survival of others. Over monetization can kill a forum entirely. Finding the right balance for an individual forum is important, and that is where this book will be helpful.

This free e-book is presented by Skimlinks and in conjuction with phpBBHacks.com. The author and contributors approached it not as an e-book, but simply as a book. The 96 page work is presented like a high quality print book from a major publisher, rather than a short e-book. For these reasons, phpBBHacks.com is proud to be a launch partner for Monetizing Online Forums.
