    You're completely asking the wrong questions. Because instead of wondering, "How can I cash in?", you should be asking, "How can I genuinely help my customers?"

    For example, your top blog post on how kids can lose weight...it starts off saying you have to be a kid to read it. We all know that kids don't look for weight loss blogs but even if they did, what are you going to sell to a kid with no money? So this article shouldn't be written for kids, it should be for parents looking for tips. You straight out told the parents to stop reading though...

    Also, I count 11 ads on that blog page....11! You know what customers do when they see more ads than actual content? They hit the backspace button and go elsewhere. So you really need to look at what your visitors are doing on site, how high your bounce rate is and what you can do to fix that. Then, cut out most of your ads, make the page more user friendly and promote a few high quality sponsors that go along with the messaging.

    One last thing; there are lots of typos on your website, which tells potential customers that you're not truly professional. People won't click your links if they can't trust you, and you build trust by giving them great content. Then again, I have a feeling like a lot of your traffic is not natural, so that could be a reason for the low sales too.

      Couldn't agree more with ya KK It is about providing advice or a solution not about how much you can make from the reader. The sooner this is realised then the profits coincide with this!

    I think there are some highly targeted CPA offers which you can promote.

    I would suggest to first focus more on driving more traffic and building your list and build an audience that trusts you. This will make it much easier to promote products.

    Finding high quality products to promote shouldn't be the main issue, there are plenty of high converting products to promote. It's all about building a relationship with your audience, especially in your niche.

    Well, it's sounds great, that you are thinking about to make money through your blog. I would like to suggest you, you need to promote your blog in Social marketing websites and share the information as well. Apart from this, if you go with SEO strategy, then your blog will get easily rank in Google.

    Looking for CPA networks, becoming an affiliate (Amazon has a great program, you should try it out), selling ad space, there are really a ton of possibilities to earn money with a blog.

  • You can do some affiliate link. In this case you may get a good amount of commission. There are many sites where the affiliate link available, you must put your NICHE related link, by which you can get many commission. Thanks

    Take some products from Clickbank. There will be a lot. Search for those who are not very expensive and those who has high conversation rate.
    I think for beginners Clickbank is the best way to start if you have never promoted any affiliate offers.

    Pretty good stuff, smitchacha

    Why not put some optin forms on your website?

    From there, you can then promote plenty of different fitness offers.

    Clickbank is a good example to start with offers.

      Exactly the same as me my friend James. I too need something better than Amazon. The payout is pathetic, just pathetic!

    You are getting 2500 visitors. Good for you. The other posters have given you some advice already about what you can add to your blog in order to get more options for money.

    Adsense does not pay too much and would really need a lot more traffic than that to be worth your while.

    If I were you, I would look at my website and see what I could do to add more value from this site. What can do you to 'give' more to your visitors?

    What do they really need?

    Sure you have to focus on your needs too. But it all works a lot better while you focus on BOTH.

    I would also look into increasing that number in traffic to more. 2500 is nice but it works out to about 80 or so a day. What about 2000 visitors per day?

    Its all about visits visits visits. Try focusing on visits and money will drive towards you. You don't have to struggle a lot. And if you struggle a lot running behind money, then there will definitely be a degradation in the system.

    Focus on traffic through various means like organic, paid, social media and so on.

    You can monetize it by placing banner ads on it using buynsellads ads. You can use Google adsense on it. You can promote cpa offers and other affiliate offers ok. Your blog. You can begin building a list of subscribers with a free offer or newsletter offer and continue to communicate and promote to your list.

    People have already told you about sad sense. Yeah, you will make some pennies. Sadly, not very many. Also, some might suggest becoming an affiliate for amazon. Good luck with that 4% commission. Like you will certainly need some.

    OK so I suggest using blog ads to make some money. Frankly, they allow you to set your own price. Look at blogs that are quite similar to your own. That way, your per day rate is not outside of the common range.

    First, get more visitors and try not to think about the money.
    Secondly, forget Adsense and go with CPA.

      CPA can offer you great opportunities, 'cause you have already the means to promote the offers (which is your blog site). Other CPA affiliate are even earning without having their own sites but still working for them, how much more for you.

      If you're gonna consider joining CPA stick to the known legit networks such as MaxBounty, Blackfox Performance Network, Peerfly and others so that your effort won't be all for nothing.

    When I go to your sites I see virtually no real calls to get me on a subscribers list - your leaving all your money on the table! 2500 visitors would give you a quickly growing list to market your products too. You need a slidein or a lightbox ( try sumome) and offer something free and worthwhile (tips on health, ebook, 30 best soups, anything you thing might work)

    People LIKE getting health info - you want to be able to send them back to your sites.

    Catch those emails and do it much more obviously then now.

    Regards
    Phil

    For the health and fitness niche, Clickbank would be one of the best places to find products to add on your blog, MarketHealth is also a good one. Where those ads are place will depend on your blog's layout.

      I totally agree with Dave. Markethealth delivered big time for me when I had a Health niche site. Ads do well under the header and side top right hand side.........

    Effectively, it's looks great, that you'll be considering for making money via your blog. I want to be able to suggest an individual, you need to promote your blog in Social marketing sites as well as talk about the details also. As well as this kind of, should you choose WEB OPTIMIZATION technique, then your blog site could possibly get very easily status in Search engines....

    you need to change your theme and put only 3 number of ads maximum, one at sidebar, one at below post title and one at end of post, that's it.

    hope this helps.
