I am a newbie in affiliate marketing, I tried couple of things and no luck, any advice would be appreciated
I have a web app with free online tools for sysadmins using PowerShell language, not enough features for a subscription model, good connection with the users, viewed as a 'community' site
It gets 120k page view monthly, 10k registered users, traffic mostly from well developed countries (US, UK) , IT specialists mostly
I tried and failed with:
- Donations, I received around 250$ when the website was created (users them self told me to add donate button) Additional 100$ with release of new version after 1 year, now it's been 2 years since creation and donations went silent
- Amazon Affiliate, I introduced a single link in nav bar 'Powershell books' directly to amazon and I saw some conversions, 10$ daily, I though I can scale it with more visible content but Amazon deletes my account due to lack of original content - it's a web app not a blog
- Peerfly CPA offers, I've added static banner ads I thougth will be relevant to my users, but I got only single click and no conversions, I just got accepted to MaxBounty, I hope they'll have more relevant offers
From what I've read I honestly thought I got good quality traffic, but I must be doing something wrong as I can't monetize it, most of tutorials are for simple landing pages or blogs, do you have any advice for a web app?
