Tools I Love: ProBoards

This is part of an ongoing series dedicated to the tools I regularly use and recommend as an Internet marketer.

What the heck is it?
ProBoards is a provider of threaded discussion forums. If you want to setup a discussion forum, public or private, dedicated to a topic or theme that is near and dear to your heart, then ProBoards is the fastest way to get going. Literally within minutes, your discussion forum can be up and running and accepting posts. ProBoards offers forum owners and their users all the popular features Internet users have come to expect from a forum, without the cost and expense of having to build one from scratch.

Why do I like it?
ProBoards is infinitely, and instantly, customizable. Not only do you have a great deal of control over the look and feel of your forum, but you also have access to some powerful administrative tools.

Where do I get it?
You can get your own forum at

How much does it cost?
ProBoards is free if you don’t mind seeing third-party banner ads and text ads on your forum. For a nominal fee, you can pay a monthly amount to make them disappear.

Insider’s Tip:
Your forum doesn’t have to be public. You can password-protect your forum (or sections of it) and only allow paying customers to access the content. Just think of the possibilities…
