PBNation.com & Standalone Forums
PBNation.com, a forum designed for paintball enthusiasts, is one of CrowdGather’s most promising standalone forum properties. With more than 590,000 members, the forum boasts more than 3.56 million threads and 71.5 million individual posts. These statistics culminate in around 500-700 active members logged in and reading posts throughout most days.
The paintball forum also has a formidable presence on search engines. For instance, Google has indexed approximately 3,260,000 individual posts and pages from the website, which means that thousands of people looking for paintball information on Google end up on their website. And over the past three months, traffic has gone up more than 30%, according to Alexa.
In addition to this tremendous reach, advertisers benefit from a better kind of customer. Zacks Research found that forum users are generally 3.5x more likely to recommend a purchase, 4x more likely to post reviews online and 3.5x more likely to share new products. The combination of targeted advertising and great customers makes forum advertising an unbeatable medium.
Yuku.com & Forum Hosting
CrowdGather also owns several forum and social media communities, which provide free services to those looking to setup online communities. With hundreds of forums hosted on its FreeForums.org, Forumer.com and LeFora.com properties, as well as social media communities on Yuku.com, the company is able to generate significant traffic that grows over time.
In aggregate, the company’s forum network generates between 220-225 million pageviews each month with 16 to 18 million unique visitors. This traffic is monetized using a proprietary advertising technology designed to differentiate between forum topics and generate a higher return on investment than traditional non-targeted advertising.
A Great Investment Opportunity
CrowdGather represents a great investment opportunity for many. In addition to its unbeatable business model, the company trades near its book value, posted strong financial results, and has seen both insiders and hedge funds accumulating its stock. As a result, this is a company that investors may want to take a look at sooner rather than later.
