    Sell affiliate products.

    Go to click-bank and browse their products. I can almost guarantee they have products that will fit your needs.

      I agree with this. I have seen gambling products from clickbank that you can promote on your site. If not, get more traffic to your site and sell advertising space.

    If the site is new, I wouldn't worry about trying to monetize it yet. My recommendation is to build the site up more, get more traffic then eventually worry about monetizing it.

    I'd scour each of the articles on this page, Poker Affiliate Guide Archives - Dealer Dan's Affiliate Bible - turn Google inside out for blogs that are poker affiliates to find out what they're doing.

    Before that though, I'd give some serious thought to what you're currently doing.

    Your "Powerful Poker Tips" post - I read, and even for a non-poker player, I know it's a filler content post. Nothing screaming epic there, so there's no way the site's getting bookmarked. In fact, that post is probably doing more damage than anything to credibility.

    With regards to credibility....

    Your welcome post has this

    Right now, we are all winning poker players, and have over 10 million $ in cash prizes, combined.
    There's supposed to be three people working on that site. Why hasn't one of you realised that the website name is poker tutorial? So people seeing it will be looking for a tutorial. It's why you're supposed to have the domain name reflect what the site is about.

    So, on a tutorial site, for poker, I click the link for poker training programs, low and behold - affiliate link for a clickbank product.

    The only way you are going to have a chance of making that site work is by

    1) Stepping up your game in terms of content - The post: Mistakes not to make and your first is
    Playing with money you cant afford to lose
    . How about Mistake #1) Not studying the form of the late Dave "Devilfish" Ulliot, a legend in poker, but not unbeaten and include the video
    2) Actually provide poker tutorials on the site. (D'uh!) The rules, the cards, the draws, the strategy etc. Make the tutorials great for beginners and get them to opt into a mailing list. Take the clickbank product off the site completely. Eradicate it. Use the site to give the tutorials, get visitors to subscribe and promote the program to them when they are ready to up their game by checking out the offer you're promoting just now.

    3) Get your legal bits on a priority to do list. Like now! You have an affiliate offer on your website and you do not have a legal disclaimer.

    This might not be the most up to date, or it might be. Been a few years since I did affiliate stuff. https://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/fi...isclosures.pdf

    I'm not an affiliate expert, but I do know an affiliated blog when I see one. One that says

    The purpose of this website, is to give back to the poker community that we got so much from.
    I tend not to buy it.

    My take - steep learning curve

    I'd rather suggest you to focus on improving the authority and trust flow rather than monetizing it. You will make money once you get a decent amount of traffic on your website.

    I think the old saying "learn to crawl before you can walk" come in to play.

    Try to think of bringing in money from the site shouldn't be part of the process at this stage, as you have a fledgling site. Generate the interest, build targeted traffic and maintain the interest and THEN think of trying to bring in some form of income.

    First of all you have a really excellent domain name.

    It is just a matter of really deciding what you want to do with it.

    Definitely develop it. Put Optin on side and develop a subscriber list to a free 30 day tutorial on how to play winning poker or something like that.

    You can scatter some affiliate products within those emails.

    Run PPC on Bing and maybe start a FB Fan Page and build up some Likes and Followers

    site = content = traffic

    Without these 3 you are dead meat. You have the site, content is not that good and not that many. Traffic there's few. Or is it traffic from Warriorforums?

    Use PPC, Facebook promotions, Reddit, stumbles and 9gag paid ads. spend a little amount of money for the ads and try to monetize them by using ads too in your site!
