I have a support group for a rare medical syndrome.
Well I posted an event today... for a "Not a Secret, Santa Gift Exchange"
I wanted to share my idea!
Basically everyone emails me a set of information (I have it all explained on my site) , everyone who enters the exchange will be put into a hat
Then I will reveal the matches via video Nov 1st.
I posted deadlines to ship their packages to each other
The rule also is they…Continue
THE DREAM OF SPIRITUAL MEDIA IS BECOMING A REALITY

Set your options in the script where indicated.
Add this script code to your "custom code" as the LAST…Continue
One way of getting traffic to your network is by using the press, and I do mean USING, not paying.
Free press is great if you can get it, and I'm gonna tell you exactly how to do it.
So far I've been featured in local press as well as a couple of glossy monthly mags, 5 publications in all, and it did not cost me a penny!
Check out the coverage so far
I don't know about you, but it does annoy me when members join my network and don't bother to upload a profile picture.
I've come up with a cunning plan to get members to upload profile pictures..
I simply changed the default profile picture (which you can find in: MEMBERS - CONTROLS)
As you can see my default profile pic was a…
There are over 90,000 social websites on Ning worldwide. As a social platform that integrates with major social tools, Ning is in a unique position to observe patterns across the entire social ecosystem. The new Ning Point of View (POV) Report examines trends in community engagement across the ever-changing social ecosystem that all inspired organizations and businesses can apply to…Continue
I just wanted to thank everyone who helped me with advice on how to get members more engaged with my network...
I am just a baby network right now, but in less than 24 hours I had 4 new sign ups and they weren't people that I asked to join. It was word of mouth. Not only that but most of the members that joined immediately were engaged with the network, and I am so much more confident in the potential growth of this site.
One of the main…Continue
I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but for the last few months, when I have a new member request and I can't quite decide if they're a spammer or just lousy at filling out their profile... I take their email and plug it into the search blank on Facebook. It's not a perfect system, but it is one more step to test a new member's authenticity before you hand them the power to blast nasty on all your members!
The screen shot, above, is of my private website for the members of The 100. ---martial arts school owners, teachers, and their staff members.
The green tabs on the left are expandable --and I found the idea here on Ning Creators. It's made organizing my information so…Continue

What do you do when Google stops your ads?
If you have ever been on YouTube which if you're into websites then you have, you may have been checking out making money with Google Adsense or you want to be a YoutTube partner. You more…Continue
Hey everyone! First time writing here, I hope it's useful.
Here's a way I keep my members interested, busy and coming back again and again to our Network. Using the Chat application!
1. I created a whole Online Programming for the Chat. Of course I have moderators; I myself only manage one of the Online Chat Programs while other members who I've chosen carefully moderate the other shows. The Program is posted on a Blog page and can be…Continue
I could end the blog post there. Do it! Follow it, create it! Your attitude will control your success. If you want to be successful then you need to stick it out. Usually the time things take off are right after you quite. Don't miss out.
Self development is a form of motivation but not the same. Both will help you reach the goals you should have set. Do you want to have 5,000 members, or $10,000 a month? I don't know, what I do know is that if…Continue

What to expect
Google doesn't disclose what niche is better or what click through rate is on average. You need to test your own. There is very little averages with Google Adsense. Typically the average click through rate (CTR) is low. 10% is high.
Are you going to make money now!?
Probably not. Don't expect to start a website or blog and put a handful of content on it and expect to be able to sit back and…
It's a well known fact that you have approxametly 4 seconds to make someone like your website or they're gone. I just wanted to let you in on a little secret. People get overwhelmed with the toys you allow them to play with. What happens to kids when they're given 30 toys for Christmas? They get tired angry and end up in their room without dinner (smirk). Too many toys to play with and the value starts to dissapear the more they open another present just like the first.…Continue
I requested all members who want to join my groups on other networks (e.g. LinkedIn) to first sign-up with my Ning network, in order to be accepted. I don't have the time to check if all potential members follow my rule, but it significantly increased the number of sign-ups on my Ning network, and also help reduce the number of people who join for spamming purposes.
I just added this to JenSocial, and figured it might be a good idea to add here too. When it comes to Graphic and Web Design, there's a ton of room for all types of artistic and creative levels, styles, etc... However, there isn't room for a ton of fonts. Some of the wonderful aspects of the vastness of the Internet are: so much to discover, so much for the eyes to see - - so many different designs, and so many different Designers. But, way too often, there…Continue
