    Hi guys,

    I currently have a website with a main function page and adsense, but the website has a forum with 550,000 members and high user activity. For each user forum account we have their (opt-in) e-mail.

    The site relates to trading cards & anime. It's definately younger people, mostly 13-25.

    The demographic breakdown is:

    38% USA
    6% Brazil
    6% UK
    5% Italy
    5% Canada
    5% Germany
    3% Mexico

    The site is currently being monetized by AdSense, but we are looking for other options or other ways of monetizing the forum / userbase.

    Thank you.

    To do what? Seems like you are just spamming.

    Home Page:
    Partner with a popular online retailer of trading cards. Either get a custom affiliate coupon code (Use coupon FORUM1 for 10% off) and get a cut from that or a direct advertising deal.

    Yeah this is interesting. I'd consider trying to contact the big card companies and seeing if they're interested in buy ad space too. x amount gets them this block x amount gets them this, ect. My friend has a forum with 100k members and increased his earnings by thousands each month by offering up ad banners spots for a monthly fee. Obviously you'd need to write a very professional message to them and be clear to explain the benefits that they could receive by having their ads there. IE: exposure to 500,000+ real active members interested in buying cards.

    I know not everyone is a fan of this but theirs also a lot of value in your email list obviously. The companies would surely be interested in that haha

    Backflip - I'd be interested in talking more with you. You've got the demographic I'm looking to target with a new product. It's family friendly and Toys/Games related. Heck, it's LEGO related actually!

    Skype me - the username is the same as on BHW. Let's set up a time to talk.
