Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
There’s a real Catch-22 involved in starting up an internet forum: people won’t participate unless there are people participating.
So how do you get started? One way is to create a few dummy accounts, then log on and write a bunch of posts under different names.
Another suggestion is to lean on your friends and family to help you get started.
You also can offer prizes—offer one for the best post of the month; for the post that creates the most replies; or for a random post.
As a last ditch effort, you could use a service like Forumshock For what seems to me to be a very reasonable price, Forumshock promises that quality posts will be made to your forum.
