Earners Forum

Vbulletin3 Logo WhiteLee Dodd at the new Earners Forum discussion forum has just posted an entry on his blog celebrating their 3 week anniversary.

I’ve been watching the forums for the last week or two but haven’t had time to jump into them yet but from what I can see they would be a very worthwhile place to stop by from time to time as a blogger looking to earn income online.

The forums have already been joined by over 1500 members and have over 17,000 posts already (pretty amazing for three weeks).

Joining the forums might also be quite profitable also because it puts you in the running for a pretty amazing prize (actually there is 5 prizes).

Like most forums about making money online I’m sure you’ll get a spectrum of users with different experiences, different approaches to making money online and different backgrounds. This can be a little frustrating at times but I’ve always found that if you’re willing to dig deep into forums and stick with them you’ll find some amazing gems in the midst of them. In fact it’s partly through participating in forums that I learned to blog for money.

Interestingly they have private discussion areas that are limited to people in your income earning level. You have to reveal your income in an application to get into these areas where you can talk to others at a similar level to you. I guess they’re relying on the honesty policy with that one.

Anyway – I’m going to join up and have a bit of a surf around – I hope to see you over at Earners Forum.

    I’m not sure I like the “exclusive” private clubs…

  4. Andy Merrett says:

    I couldn’t see the bit where you put in income. Is that a separate application to joining th forum?

  5. Leroy Brown says:

    That’s some fantastic numbers for such a new site – I’m impressed! Seems like a pretty good site at first glance – definately one I”ll be keeping an eye on. Thanks for the heads up.

    thanks for the tip Darren, this will become (already has i think) a great reasource for bloggers.

    i too wonder about the private income related groups. i think it adds an element of suspicion to an otherwise friendly forum. is there really any legit reason for the private rooms?

  7. Darren Rowse says:

    Andy – once you’ve logged in the second section down is ‘Applications for Promotion (Private)’ – information for applying for those areas is in there.

  8. Starr says:

    The exclusive areas seem like a bad idea. Isn’t the net supposed to be about sharing this kind of thing? About equal access? I can see the point in wanting to get away from the kind of 2-bit hucksters that a forum like this might attract, but I don’t think building walls can be the answer.

    What if they let you pay to join the exclusive areas, while still letting in successful businesspeople for free? It might be worth it to a lot of people to get access to those discussions.

    Having users define their web income is a fantastic idea, you can instantly quanitify whether you should take the poster seriously. I’m over there using Lyndoman as my handle, I mainly hang out in the writers forum

    Come on in, the waters lovely.
