    You are allowed to send them updates about the new stuff on the forum. When they first joined I think you would have had to mention that from time to time you will get special offers from you that you recommend.

    I'm not 100% sure if it would be spam if you send them a product for sale that relates to your forum. I think if the forum is about Video Games and you are sending them emails on a great way to make money online then they might consider that spam since they didn’t join for that.

    I would recommend posting opt-in on the forum and make sure to specify what kind of offers they will be getting when they confirm the opt-in

    I'm sure someone with know experience with this will be able to help you out.

    When they signed up for the forum. if they did not signup by filling out a opt-in form, it would not be a good idea to send them offers for products. I agree with Ntech. Posting a opt-in form on your forum to make sure the members of the forum want to receive such info is the better route..

      Could you send them ad opt-in form through email? Does your forum send out notifications? Is there is a way to do opt-in through an email? But for all future sign ups, I would offerthe opt-in when they are signing up.

        I agree with this. Also include an opt-out button on each email so it would be easy for them should they don't want the type of email you'll be sending.

    One solution would be to make your promotion on the forum and then e-mail them about new content on your forum... That way I think there'd be no problem.

    Do you use Facebook ? Then you can make money just by inviting people to a Facebook group ! It's called the Instant Income System. How cool is that?
