SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- We are excited to announce the release of "Monetizing Online Forums" by Patrick O'Keefe, the most detailed resource on generating revenue from online forums to date. Author and forum expert O'Keefe has been managing online forums for twelve years, making him one of the premier experts on forum management and monetization.
Forums can be more sensitive to monetization than other spaces. This book is not about squeezing every last dime out of your forums, but making money in the right way with the right methods. Over monetization can kill a forum – with this guide, we aim to help people monetize appropriately, ensuring the long-term stability of their forums.
All meaningful methods of monetization are covered, including display advertising, in-text monetization, classified and thread based advertising, sponsored brand placement, affiliate programs and CPA networks, product sales, premium memberships, mobile monetization and generating revenue from your presence on third party platforms. O'Keefe also discusses implementation and best practices, making "Monetizing Online Forums" the most comprehensive guide to forum monetization available.
We are also happy to announce that "Monetizing Online Forums" will be offered to readers for free, thanks to a sponsorship from Skimlinks. O'Keefe had full editorial control and Skimlinks sponsorship had no effect on the content of the book, so readers can be assured that they are getting an unbiased and all-encompassing understanding of how to generate profit from their forums.
