Since the start of this year, I have been earning around £50 a month by adding Google AdSense to my forum. The forum has been ad-free since it began 6 years ago, with all costs covered by myself, but the migration to XenForo in January meant that for the first time I could easily implement an ad system and start to recoup a bit towards these costs. As a result, I found myself idly wondering yesterday if ever a time would come when I could rely on my forum/web site for my sole income. This is unlikely, as it is a very small local community forum, but it's a nice thought, so I thought I would see if there is anyone here who does earn a decent income from their site and would be willing to chat about it? I realise that this is not the sort of thing that one wants to talk about in public, but if there is anyone who would be willing to discuss it via PM (or PC as XenForo calls it) I promise it would all be in the strictest confidence! Basically, I'm just interested to know things like: How much you make per month? Via what means? Do you just run a forum, or is xenforo just a small part of your site and it is your other content that drives revenue? How did you start out? Et cetera. So it's not personal information I'm after - just general advice from people who have "been there, done that" and are currently doing quite well. Any information would be appreciated, as I would love to expand my site so that it becomes a very real and significant resource for the people in my area. Thanks in advance. M.
