    Funny videos i think is hard to sell some products..

    I think the good way is you create one FanPage and drive traffic to it...

    If some content get viral, you will get alot of views and with that you can create one website about funny videos and drive traffic to them.

You have research on this to find out something cool that you can offer them in this niche.I am not sure if it works Good for you. But yea i am confident that it should work.

    Hard one to monetise outside of Amazon products. CPA is very restrictive usually, with most offers only applying to top tier countries. All depends on where most of your subscribers are from. Are they mostly Indian based people ?

    How many subscribers are you talking about anyway ?

      I believe CPA is not my cup of tea because i have email list of various countries including Asia, Europe, United states and Australia.

      I am talking about list of 100,000 subscribers.

    You may want to look at some CPA offers in the entertainment niche. I believe Netflix usually has a trial membership offer. I expect there are others.

    As DWaters said above, Netflix CPA would be cool.

    Also,if you're managing to get huge subscriber numbers it must mean you're site is getting huge traffic. If it is, I'd try monetising your site first and see what offers work. Also sign up Google Adwords or other ad networks and stick their ad rotator on your sidebar. I'm sure a lot of these people are probably also into gaming offers and similar things.

    Obviously you've had success with building your list through your funny video site. Has it ever occured to you to either package a training course on 'how to' create video email subscribers? Or a course on creating a video blog/website?

    Seems you already have the knowledge...might as well use it. You be surprised how many people would pay to learn to create a successful video site. Heck, I probably would in fact, as video is my weakest link to date.

    In short, a brief pdf overview of your success accompanied by some video tutorials could essentially entice your subscribers to learn how you builta huge list.

    Now, by taking that experience and teaching others you could drop them an email offering a special offer (lower price) and some may be quite interested in learning to emulate your success.

    Also, you could market to other marketers (like forums...coughs, lol) whereby you market the product, build a buyers list, and create affiliates who could use your 'funny video site' as the hub from which your financial success begins or began (if looking ahead).

    Couldn't hurt to try... And I'm sure your subscribers wouldnt be offended to hear you are offering a product, if you inform them of your latest endeavors.

    Seems a better way than passing the sales off to Amazon...which you could still do in addition to creating your own 'how to' product.

    Good Luck.

      I am working on the tutorial course and would able to launch in couple of weeks.

      I have done lots of research to create my video sites and i was aware that video sites are the best one to drive viral traffic if used correctly.

      Thanks for your advice

    i would "sell" them more funny videos.

    you should be able to drive traffic to more funny videos and help make them go viral with your email list.

    you should be able to send emails for far less than even adsense type income when you factor in all the viral affects of increasing the popularity of your funny video site.

    I Like Davids Idea.

    Why ot create your own funny videos and sell them as a package?

    Don't know how well it works though.

    You could introduce yourself to your list and explain that you are also active in a couple of other markets, and see if they would be interested in either of these. If they are, ad them to a new list that is specific to that market. Of course these would be markets that you had researched ahead of time and have some monetization ideas for. You could go with fairly universal ones like entrepreneurship and health.

    It's easy. You can offer a general product that is loved by everyone, like iPhone or iPad. CPA offer is the best way for it.

    If your site has huge traffic and is famous I think you should start selling advertisement and also continue getting more traffic in your through more funny videos and other source of entertainment.

      The "Funny Videos" niche is really hard to convert.
      My advices is:

      - connect the email with a social page (the perfect Social Network for this situation is Facebook)
      - continue to share funny videos on email and facebook page. You can create a weekly list of the most popular videos (to increase the engagment)
      - after some months sell an infoproduct with a general topic (like sleep, personal happiness and others...)

    Honestly at this point I would just put some adsense ads on that site and monetize it with adsense. I did that with a few of my lists I was having trouble monetizing and it worked great.

    I would use it to further expand the community you already have on your site. Maybe expand to a forum and utilize the newsletter to bring everyone together. Build a strong community.

    From the looks of the original post you're trying to make a quick buck with the list. If those are unique users to your site, I would strongly recommend that you use it to improve your site.
