Launching a Domaining Forum, Can I Count on You?

Posted on 18 February 2010 by Andrei

Simply put: you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. I’m looking for a handful of people who are interested in being on board as “founders”. I will definitely make it worth your while, here’s what will make the forum special:

1) Practically no moderation whatsoever. If you want to sign up just so you can tell me that I suck, be my guest. As long as we’re not talking about things like racism, it’s all good. I’m sure most of you are well aware of the fact that all domaining forums are being let’s say “censored” every once in a while and that’s just not right.

2) Weekly contests: free vector logos such as these, cash prizes and more. Sharing revenue with the people who are providing value is an extremely important part of my business model, the contests will basically be all about rewarding the folks who are helping others: if that’s not a win-win situation, I don’t know what is 🙂

3), 4), 5), …., 871) Hey, you don’t want me to reveal EVERYTHING now, do you? Stay tuned, the launch will definitely not go by unnoticed, I can guarantee that much.

If you want to be on board as a founder, shoot me an email at office [at] billiondollarmedia [dot] com and tell me a little bit about yourself. Nobody who does business with me ends up regretting it afterwards, let’s make some money!

    The biz model behind forums is virtually dead, with everything that has happened with social networks past few years. It’s easy to launch a forum, but to sustain growth and activity…. Yikes! 🙂

  9. Andrei Says: the thing is, forums stood the test of time, just like blogs. Web 2.0 sites will come and go in my opinion but there will always be “fundamentals”. There will always be a place for forums, just like there will always be a place for blogs. They’re an extremely effective environment for sharing opinions. If you want to ask a general question, you start a thread. If you want to contribute, you post. If you want to reach out to just one person, you send a Private Message.

    It all makes sense and IMHO, forums/blogs/email/etc. will always be constants. If a certain business model is only let’s say 1-2 years old, it makes sense to say something along the lines of “it might be a fad and nothing more”. Maybe the business model will stick, maybe not.

    But if 5 years have passed and the business model is still valid, things definitely stand quite a bit differently. If let’s say 10 years have passed, it should be clear that the business model in question is here to stay and if a certain business model has been around since 1996 (that’s when the first web-based forums appeared, if I’m not mistaken: there were mediums which could be labeled as forums before that but I’ll limit myself to analyzing web-based forums to be fair), it should be clear that we’re talking about a keeper 🙂

    You know what, you gave me a great idea for a post, I’ll publish it later today.

    In “business” since 2002, was valued at $45k or something like that when it was put up for sale.. I personally think the new owners overpaid at least by 2-3x, but whatever. Their money. Can waste / invest it however they like.

    Do ask Mr. Latona how is doing and whether it’s a good business overall.

    I wish you luck with the new ventures but this forum businesses sucks, and no denying it…

    I know.. I know… You can show me one success story where a forum is racking in lots of dough but I will show you 1000 failures. That is the ratio. 1:1000. That’s just how it is 🙁



  12. Andrei Says: the thing is, the same principle is valid when it comes to social media websites and just about everything else. For every successful website you show me (and I’m sure you know just as well as I do that most social media websites which are considered successful aren’t even profitable atm, they’re only running thanks to the VC funding they have at their disposal), I’ll be able to show you tons of failures.

    The fact that forums have been around since 1996 says a lot IMO, I’m really curious if people will even remember what a tweet was 15 years from now 🙂

    Improve You Sex Life And Buy Sex Toys So you want to spice up your relationship with your partner? Well buying Sex Toys is a great way to do just that.

    The first step is to talk to your partner about the idea of incorporating Sex Toys into your relationship. You may have used sex toys in the past for your own personal use and may feel a bit skeptical and worried about how your partner will react to the idea of sex toys, but don’t be! My motto is if you don’t ask you don’t get, you will probably find they embrace the idea and you can begin buying Sex Toys together. If they do not then you can always suggest starting off small with maybe a small finger vibrator or a bit of light bondage but remember to explain to your partner that sex toys are a way to add a little spice to the relationship and will not be a replacement for your partner.

    Many people will feel embarrassed about going into a sex shop and would not ask a member of staff for help or recommendations. So that’s where online adult sex shops like are perfect for searching together for Sex Toys with complete discretion and privacy. A good place to start is to find a sex toy that you or your partner will not feel intimidated buy such as a finger vibrator, this way you can work your way up to bigger sex toys.

    Once you both feel more comfortable using sex toys together, then you can try more exotic sex toys like bunny vibrators, flesh light sex toys, anal beads and maybe electro stimulation sex toys. As a note, it may be worth adding some lubricant with your purchase to stop any unpleasant friction.

    When using Sex Toys for the first time, make sure you use it gently to find out how your partner likes it best then taking it up a notch, remember to always talk with your partner while using sex toys as this help to build communication in the relationship and you find out what presses you partner buttons.

    As you experiment with different sex toys you can decide which ones are right for you as a couple. You will gain enough trust in each other, that buying Sex Toys as gifts with add a whole new excitement to your relationship both in and out the bedroom.

    Remember that you can experiment buying Cheap Sex Toys and work you way up to more exspensive ones.
