Best way to monetize these websites?

18 replies
Hi everybody! I own a few websites that work within the Kik messaging app. This popular messaging app has a section in it called "top sites", that lists the most used sites that work with the app, enhancing the chat. I own KikMe (7th), HeyYa (10th), Cute Girls (20th) and many more. Altogether they get about 800k pageviews per day, that turn in a revenue (from adsense) of about 300$ per day. Right now I only use adsense, but i'm looking for a different way to monetize this big amount of traffic. Do you have any ideas? Please try my websites and let me know! Thank you!!

    Maybe you should leverage the traffic by building a list, present the sign up as a newsletter or something like that. Then promote niche specific products. Your sites have to do with relationship and dating I think, so I would push these types of offers. Aslo use banners or you could sell banner space on your site, With 800k sky is the limit.

    have you considered simply creating a page about direct advertising, and allowing people to purchase ads that pay better than Google Adsense. Then when you get a purchase, you simply remove the Google Adsense and replace it with the ad that was purchased. I did this on my site and it worked beautifully.

    Are you relying solely on search engine traffic or other methods of social marketing as well? If you are only relying on one method of traffic generation, you should start by diversifying to ensure you always have such great success with traffic.

      What kind of product do you think would be best? i think the users are mostly teenagers bored and looking to chat with someone (i don't think they have much money to spend)

      I'm relying on Kik only


      Also, the traffic went up to about 1.1m pageviews/day but the CPC went down to about 0,04 (before they were 0.05/0.06)... So the earnings are much lower. Any idea on how to get higher CPC?

      Thank you!

        Congrats! You are getting some nice traffic and decent revenue per day!

        As for CPC, checkout the traffic you are getting from what countries. My traffic is mostly from US, UK, Canada. CPC rate seems to be high from these countries, and other countries not that high.

              That's pretty darn funny don't you think?

              800,000 page views daily and ONLY 300 bucks per day?

              It's great to see someone generating that kind of traffic but it's not great to see someone not profiting from all that.

              I see a lot of bloggers out there getting lots and lots of traffic, leads and followers but not too much in sales.

              It's good that tatoskate is getting $300 daily but with that kind of traffic, someone with the right money 'mindset' should be making at least 7 figures (at least).

                I guess i'm not really good at monetizing, that's why i'm asking.. I've only used an adsense banner, which has a low CPC and a low CTR. I think my websites are not exactly built around the idea of making money with them so they don't have the right niche/keyword "formula", as you can see if you visit them. That's why it's harder to find a way to profit them better. If you have any idea i'd be very interested!

    My friend if you are really interested in monetizing then a Business Directory is a great way to go. Add a business directory to your site and since you get lots of traffic advertisers would be glad add their business to your business directory and drive some of the traffic to them. Because business directories can hold thousands of advertisers you only need to charge each one a small free. Example: 200 advertisers at a fee of $30 per month is $6000 per month. See my profile for more information.

    Don't look for long term solutions, your websites have hype and you should profit from them right now. I would advise you to go with mobile CPA offers, which shouldn't be too hard to do. If you want more help contact me via PM so I can examine your websites and offer insider information.

    Very interesting. I didn't knew about this app from before.

    Seems like your sites are dating related so why not promote some date online success courses...
