Today, phpBBHacks.com is pleased to present a new free ebook written by our founder, Patrick O'Keefe
. "Monetizing Online Forums"
is a guide to generating revenue from forums in an ethical way that respects a community. While not every forum should or needs to generate revenue, for many it is necessary for a variety of reasons. For those forums, it is important to bring in funds while not placing a negative impact on the member experience. Going overboard with monetization can drive members away. The purpose of this book is to help administrators find that delicate balance.
This is not your typical free ebook - Patrick, his contributors, and the publisher, Skimlinks, approached this work as the creation of a high quality book. It was treated as if it was a book for a major publisher and Patrick wants the readers to treat it in the same way. He respects the time you will spend reading it, and that impresses me. For all these reasons, I am proud that this book is presented in conjunction with phpBBHacks.com. "Monetizing Online Forums"
can be downloaded for free
from the new page for the book right here at phpBBHacks.com:http://www.phpbbhacks.com/features/mone ... forums.php
Congratulations to Patrick and everyone involved in the creation and release of this book!
