How much?? $$


Active member
I'm wondering how we could make the forum make us more money?
I was thinking about making a membership forum.
Free Users: access to forums
Paid $1-5 a month: access to all forums, plus maybe a few hidden forums, plus access to a chat software? Like cometchat.

What do you guys think

It's not the specific forum software that makes you money but the business plan you create.

I've made/make the most from directly sold ads.

Pay to access forums typically don't work unless you're providing content worth the price or have a vast community.

Several thousand in total for custom theme designs. I have made a few thousand through my forum in the past too from advertisements.
