advice on how to monetize website

21 replies
I created website in health and fitness niche two months ago that has about 30000 visitors monthly, and roughly 50-60 articles. Is that enough traffic to start monetizing my website and if it is how should i do it ? Adsense,CPM or review of products (for example whey protein review and affiliate link to amazon or similair) or something else. I also thought about creating my product (Ebook for building muscle or weight loss since i have expertise on this)

And is it possible to get to about 300000-400000 visitors per month and how long would it take ?

    30,000 visitors monthly is more than enough traffic to start monetizing your site. The best way to see which model to use when monetizing your site is to test them all.

    You could easily add adsense to your site and cpa offers. I would stay away from cpm offers because that will not make you much money.

    I would also recommend that you start adding product review articles to your site to make even more money.

    After a month or so...You can take a look at your sites and see what is making you money and what is not. You can then change things that need to be changed and keep the methods that are making you money.

    Yep, doing product reviews with affiliate links is probably the easiest way to make money. If you want to make even more money, you could also try to get set up with dropship accounts and have an actual store section on your website. There are quite a few suppliers in the fitness niche who dropship.

        Dropshipping is when you contact suppliers for wholesale prices and enter into an agreement with them where they will ship orders placed on your website for their products directly to the customer. This way, you do not have to spend lots of money on inventory, store all of those products, pack and ship them.

        The bulk of our free online course is built around the dropship model.

    Generate some ads, like Adsense, Admob and Bing into your site. You will get paid for every ad impression or click.

    If 1,000 people are hitting your site on a daily basis you should be able to find a way to monetize it. I suggest you install an optin form so you can start building an email list. If you want to start making money right away install some Google Adsense code on your website.

    Hi, pricefee!
    It's an ountstanding experience!
    There are two different approaches, both of them are fine.
    1) Easy and fun - AdSense and CPA offers.
    This approache will provide you with immmediate results (money).
    2) Long-term - add an optin-page and start gathering your visitors' email addresses.
    You can mix them.
    review of products (for example whey protein review and affiliate link to amazon or similair)
    Making money from reviews is a lot easier if you have a list.

    Ya that much traffic is more than enough to monetize. Do consider Adsense, Amazon, Yahoo Ads, and other programs on your site.

    you can create a website about what you want to do business, then build contents ands do SEO helping people know your products, then you can also monetize online by becoming affiliate and receive comission from selling products of a certain agency.

    Here is a clever tip:

    Idenntify some of your articles that are performing really well. Edit them and incorporate links of your recommended whey protein or any other affiliate products. However, make sure that it comes naturally. Everyone loves to buy but no one loves to be sold out to.

    For example, in one of your diet plans,you add a link of your favorite supplement.

    Thanks

    30K visitors is plenty already! You should be fine using Adsense and especially selling your own book.

    ;-) Nice job. Yeah you have plenty of traffic if its good traffic. The first question is where is the traffic coming from and what are the demographics of the traffic. You match it up with your monetization so you can maximize the return.

      Well, its mostly USA traffic (86 %) with low bounce rate and from google stats it seems its good, but i guess i'll know for sure when and if i start getting sales and ad clicks

    Go to your Google Analytics

    click on Audience> then Interests> The check Out "Affinity Category" & "In-Market Segments"

    from there you can easily find out what you audience is into and monetize accordingly with CPAs or products

    hope that helps

    With 30,000 visitors you should be good to go buddy! Good job on that achievement

    As for monetizing I suggest to avoid Adsense as it is simply a waste of ad space nowadays as it pays peanuts compared to other alternatives. You have a really "offer friendly" niche, I suggest going to OfferVault, then hitting your keyword in and from the advanced search, making the type of offers to lead. You will be amazed at all the stuff you could promote, and you don't need to sell anything! It is one of my most favourite ways to monetize, and some of the Pay per lead is in the thousands for your niche!

    Some alternatives include Affiliate Marketing from Clickbank, doing product reviews on different amazon products and selling it that way (works for clickbank too)

    Hope This Helps!

    It is definitely about time to start monetizing your site. You need to also keep adding content so that Your traffic continues to grow.

    I will recommend writing product review articles for both physical and informational products if you like. You can also start to build a list by offering a news letter to your readers. Make your site engaging by using video and images.

    Good luck with everything.

    You're doing a great job, well done on the 30k visitors. I would suggest you create a free report as an incentive for visitors to sign-up to your list, make sure you already have some follow-up emails and broadcast emails (with promotions) ready to go, treat your first subscriber as if you had 1'000's of subscribers! As well as building and mailing to your list, add some affiliate banners to your home page, that will drive some traffic to your affiliate links and some will buy.

    Great Job - let us know how you grow !!!
