Can you inform if it is a good chance to make money from running a forum?:unsure:
The very short answer is that is a zero chance of making money from running a forum is you are not well established in the niche the forum is in first.
Yes. Take a look at V7N for example. They have Google Adsense in it..
Most forums make very little money.. Some of the big ones make some money with advertising...
I run 3 forums and the revenues are low!
I get more income from social web 2.0 sites I own!
Can't see how there's any money in it. Takes up alot of your free time as well.
I suppose you'd have to get staff to help run it as well unless you're lucky enough to get volunteers.
I didn't make much while running a forum a while back :/
Depends if you have a niche forum, plus u need to advertise it which takes time, but with high levels of traffic id say yes.
runing a trade forum maybe can make some money
yes.... i think posting some advertisement or banner on your site.... you can earn money with that
I am not earning any money yet,
hmmmmm..... in adsense visitors need to click the advertisement in order for you to earn as long as in paid banners and ads....
I think forum owners need to try and be a tad bit more creative with their forum's earning capabilities. The two traditional income streams from forums are adsense and ads. They need to think wider. For instance... if it is a site/forum with a very catchy name and say related to a niche, try adding extra services to members, say offer them a customized email address from the domain with their username, or allow members to advertise their services in your forum for a fee or for a % of sales, or block PM priviledges unless users meet certain criteria, some of which can be finding a way for them to make you money...(crazy I know... but I am just thinking...) and I can think of a few other such methods.
They might not all work, but the idea is expand your horizons... And much more importantly, test the potency of your methods. Don't just add a monetization model and sit back and hope it earns you an income, test it for efficiency.

all forums have low CTR , so I think not
well, traffic is the main source of revenue for whatever u do in internet. if you have good traffic then you can utilize it properly to generate good revenue.
However forums doesnt make as much as a site can make.
Yes you can make money from a forum. It takes time and energy for this to happen so be patient.
