    Red face - PHPFox (SNS) - Ways to generate revenue???

    Hi guys, how's it going?

    OK, I will be putting up a site using PHPFox and I
    am interested to know how you generate money?


    ESPECIALLY YOU CLENARD... (but everyone is welcome)

    Like maybe for the profile page, should I restrict the profile
    builder to Gold or V.I.P. members for a low monthly fee?

    What would/do you restrict for a fee?

    I can add (paid-for) ad space or something similar...

    I have been pondering this for a while.
    (I think that is what's holding me back)

    Whadayathink???

    All opinions, thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!

    Jamie

    I don't know the exact answer at this point, but eventually I will need to know as well. What I plan to do is look into the ways that sites such as MySpace, Friendster & Facebook make their money. MySpace has leaderboard banners on many pages and it appears that is their primary adspace, although I'm not certain if it is their main form of revenue generation.

    Hey Jamie,

    Well, unfortunately I was using IE7 while trying to type my last reply and had a nice, big reply that got lost when IE decided to crash. So, I'm going to try this again!

    First off: Don't charge your members for anything ... especially anything MySpace or the others is giving away for free.

    The main thing I would like to know is: Who is it you're marketing to? That could be a major difference in how you should run your SNC.

    If you're running a more General SNC (and NOT Adult) I would definately start with AdSense or YPN (try YPN first, you might enjoy the Results a little more than GAS [GoogleAdSense]) and also use your other Ad spots wisely.

    Don't use GAS or YPN in any spots other than the 336X280 spots... those are going to work the best.

    Definately use the banners for Paid Advertisements or (if possible) Affiliate Banners, if you can.

    The best information will definately come from knowing your full intentions with your site. Would you be willing to share that in the thread or PM?

    I can help more but it's just too General and too "simple" or "obvious" not knowing your Target Market, Intentions, etc.

    HTH!

    - Clint
