    I would say I am not good at monetizing my sites. I have a blog which provides pretty good content in my niche, and recently I launched a forum.

    For now my community is very small, around 60 members, so monetization will not make much sense right now.

    I would like to hear what more experienced forum managers have to say about the ways to monetize the forum and when it the right time to do it?

    What platforms you use? Which one works good with XF?

    Please, I would appreciate if you can avoid generic answers "build your audience, great content and stuff" because everyone knows that already.

    When you feel adding adverts to your site wont detract from your visitors and content

    It depend son your niche, do you have the ability to go to industry suppliers directly and they will provide a better ROR than adsence, but adsence and other networks are easier to just get up and go.

    Thanks Slavik (Love your BB avatar btw).

    I will see some options out there such as SkimiLinks, or Viglinks, Adsense, etc.
