At Skimlinks, we know that forums are tight knit communities that are built on trust, and that readers are understandably sensitive to advertising. So we’ve put together a ‘Best Practices for Forum Monetization guide’ that provides a step by step guide on how you can customize SkimLinks and SkimWords to provide the best user experience possible. We suggest a gradual roll-out, where you select the right features for your community. We also highly recommend disclosing your use of Skimlinks products to your readers - we actually financially encourage you to do - because honesty and transparency is key, and the feedback we’ve gotten is that our service adds value to the reading experience.
Let us know if you have any other best practices for forum monetization, or if you want to reach out and checkout our services!
