Further monetizing iPad blog

by qwat
11 replies
I have an iPad blog where I post news / information articles daily that gets about 300k uniques / month and 900k impressions. Currently monetizing with Adsense making $100-$120 / day. I want to further monetize it by selling ad space. Any ideas on good pricing / size structure? And where to go about selling it as my site does not get approved on buysellads.com

I may add iPad CPA offers as well.

    Look at other top sites in your niche and see who they are using for their advertising.

    Study the layouts of the ads and you should be on your way.

      They are all using solely adsense. I feel like I am missing out on some money by further monetization.

    I would probably split test between different iPad CPA offers. Also you can sell ad space here at warrior forum. The going rate is about what you would earn for every Adsense click.

      You mean in warriors for hire section? I didn't see anyone selling ad space so I wasn't sure if people sold it here.

      thanks

    Good job on those stats.

    Have you tried Google image & video ads?

    How about monetizing with Amazon or other affiliate offers?

      I am using strictly Image Ads, no text ads. I have not done anything with video ads as I haven't been able to find much info about it being good or not.

      Haven't tried Amazon either.

    I use Amazon offers on posts of my iPad accessories blog along with adsense. It augments my adsense income from the blog by about 50%. Hope it helps

    However, if you are set on monetizing it, I’d suggest starting with a review of the iPad. That will only take you so far, but one way to supplement it would be with video reviews of different aspects of the device.

    I would definitely suggest Amazon or other affiliate program - look to cross sell iPad games and accessories to monetize further. Can I ask how long it took to reach the level you're at? It's quite impressive!
