  • anyone making a living with vB?

    Hey, just curious if anyone is able to make their vB sites profitable enough to be their job? I know there are some
    pretty ambitious/talented folks out there. Not that a vB site has to be commerical at all. Just curious....

      of course...I think....why is there something that would disqualify you? I thought you might be one, with your big ole network.

      So you get to do those full-time? That's fantastic!! Tell me more...

        Well I don't really make money from my forum, but I do make some money from selling vB stuff.
        Not much but enough for me.

            Why hacks of course.
            (privately though, I've never advertised any of these hacks)

            And also services, like upgrading boards and such - although this is less often.

                that would be sweet if i made a steady income from running my site. *me remembers back 6 years ago when one could make tons of money by manipulating the 'get paid while you're online' services*

                    Sigh... I never got in on that stuff 'cause I thought they were all scams. Looking back I should've.

                    One thing I've learned about business (from a successful guy I talked to) is to cross-sell. Make good use of every single one of your members. Don't just leave them at the forum registrations and that's it.
                    Well, there it is.

                        I don't make a dime off of my site...but I probably will. I project at least a 15-cent profit in 2002.

                          I never made anything off of my forum. The only thing it brought me was a hosting bill every month. lol

                            I get a pretty good income off my sites (one public, one private) but it's not quite enough to live on yet. This may change in the near future though!
