Allyson Basically for $24.95/mo you can upgrade your account to Ning Premium. With Ning Premium, you get rid of the Ning advertisements and use an ad provider such as Yahoo! Publisher or Google AdSense to put relevant ads on your social network. You can even run ads from an external provider such as AdBrite.com, and retain the ad revenue for your group. AdBrite.com can help to create customized ads that will be relevant to your social network.
