Website getting 700 +/- hits a day.. what are some good ways to monetize?

54 replies
Hey WF Members...

I have a Beyonce site I put together that gets around 700 hits a day and right now, Adsense just isn't cutting it.

I know there's a way to make some money off this traffic besides adsense...

Couple of things I've tried...

CPA - did some free $500 coupon offers, iphone 4s, and victoria secret. So far, no sign ups at all.

Adsense - I make about 3 to 5 bucks a days

I know there's something I'm missing.

What other methods should i pursue to boost my revenue up for this site..

Thanks in advance for your answers...

Their really appreciated

    First things first... are you capturing any of these visitors? Are you offering anything for free in exchange for their email? If not, do that right away. I mean now. Stop reading this thread and start building a list.

    You could also get them to like a fan page. Just make sure that you are capturing them or else all of your efforts are going down the tubes.

    What sort of ads are popping up in AdSense that are earning you $3-$5 a day? If there is some interest in those, then it might be better to offer those things direct to your visitors, rather than on a get paid per click basis.

    Also, take a look at some of your competitor sites, namely the much larger ones and see how they are monetizing.

      Some great info. Thanks!

      I have a site that is getting about 200 visits a day and I have just had adsense on there - making $1 a day. I'm thinking that I'm going to start building a list instead. Seems like there isn't much money in adsense.

        Sounds like were in the same boat my man. LOL.. I just installed popup domination and now I can capture leads. I told them to sign up and see one of the most viewed Beyonce Videos most fans have never seen. I think that should get some attention..

        Quick tip. if you dont want to pay to build a list as of right now, use iContacts free edition (up to 500 contacts) or mail chimp..

        If you get to where you can make money from the list, it's worth paying for...

      Hey I took you and I think few more people gave the same advise. Yours stood out more tho.. I created me a free account with iContact, installe popup domination and now I'm capturing leads..

      Here's what I'm getting them what. I tell them to sign up and get to see the most viewed Beyonce video that everyone is talking about. I'm building a list then I'm going to hit them with some click bank offers.

      Thanks for the advise..

      Brian, is there a way to check what ads are being clicked on? Or is it just a matter of looking at the sites showing on your site?

      Thanks for any info.

      I think that's going to be the biggest factor. I got 5k hits in one day because I have the most viewed video on youtube about her pregnancy.. As of right now, I get about 5k views per day on that video.

      I have my site inside the video which is the reason for a big chunk of my traffic. I'm getting traffic from everywhere. it just figuring out what they will buy that's killing me.

      As a few more members said tho, I'm building a list now. See if I can make something happen with a list..

      and as for CPA yea. Im with Maxbounty. Are their ads pretty good? I dont know. Their offers look pretty good to me.

      Justin said to try peerfly so I'm going to check them out and see what they have to offer

      I don't think that will work... rather start offering something free in exchange of their emails/phone number... promoting Ringing tones will be just a great call... but first store your traffic by collecting you visitors information... the best way to get them is by offering a freebie (great if you have Beyonce ringing tones you can offer for free, if you don't start searching for it ...)

    You could use banner ads from clickbank.com offers that relate to your website. Clickbank sometimes pays a lot better and if you find a high converting one then you're in business.

    Perhaps would be better to hire some experts that could find better keywords. Let´s say $10 one-click keywords and you can concentrate then more on your AdSense earnings, because I am sure it´ll be better to concentrate on the main thing that gives you more money than spending lots of time investing into $0.50 projects :-))

    I'm not sure if it's the kind of traffic you can monetize really well. I'm not sure. But think about what Beyonce fans admire about her. The way she sings, the way she looks, her style... maybe teach your visitors how they could achieve such things for themselves.

    You could go down the ringtones route, or look into products that teach people how to make it in the commercial music industry. An awful lot of people are desperate to become famous pop stars.

    The first thing I would do is go to a site like Qantcast and find out the demographic of people visiting most of the Beyonce sites. Only then can you choose offers that are targeted to that demographic.

    Are the placements of your Adsense ads good? Maybe you should test different placements first and also text/image for better CTRs and CPCs.

    If they don't work out, then should move on to some other method.

    If you are not building your list then you should use a tool like
    Popup Domination - Get More Subscribers & Make More Money In 2011!
    then offer affiliate products to your list.

    With the adsense i would definitely remove that.
    Unless you are getting MASSIVE AMOUNTS other wise using
    adsense is just a waste of time and money.

      I didn't even read your post but that's what I did. I installed popup domination and im just capturing their emails, no names.

      I dont want to take the adsense off because my site has the potential to get tons of traffic one day. I missed it the first time when I got like 10000 hits in a few days.. Cant miss that again..

      Thanks though.. Great advise

    Definitely ringtones offer ! no doubt.

    also you should put a facebook like content locker in there as well. That can get you nearly 700 likes everyday and get you more viral power.

    there is a free wordpress plugin that will provide you with a like button content locker.

    I hope this helps.

  • So, I just checked your Beyonce site out..

    Try putting the Adsense ads in the articles. You have them on the sides way out of the way.

    Also, the ads have NOTHING to do with beyonce.. They are about purses and stuff...

    You should read some AdSense tips so you know how to optimize the site better.

    I love the domain name. I see why you are getting a lot of hits.

    Someone suggested iTunes, but I can't see any suggestions for CD's etc of Beyonce. If that's what the site is about, you really need products related to Beyonce.

    CPA isn't working because it's not what your site is about.

    Promote anything and everything related to Beyonce and see what happens.

    JMHO.

    Question: Is it 700 hits a day, or 700 unique visitors a day? These are two totally different things.

    I agree with capturing the email address for some sort of newsletter/autoresponders. If you don't get return traffic, you can also try midpage ads where you link the partial content on your first page to an ad-only page. That page would have a skip button which brings the surfer to the full content.

      I would recommend promoting concert tickets. People Google "artist+concert" like you wouldn't believe, and there are affiliate programs out there for concert ticket sales. You can keep them up-dated with the latest concert news and quick access to purchase tickets. I wouldn't be surprised if you could make a killing doing this.

      You could build a list, but your audience is probably too broad to understand how to market to them through email. They could be all walks of life, and figuring out what the sweet spot is that they all relate to could be tough, plus is that sweet spot even monetiz-able through email?

      Now, if you could determine that your visitors are super star dreamers and want to become American Idols, then yes, you could create a news letter on how to become famous, offering resources for hip hop dance lessons, vocal lessons, getting an agent, etc.

    Okay, you owe me big for this one. I'll make it real short though! In tough economic times people like humor and since Beyonce is extremely popular there are many humorous youtube videos that fit that niche. Go to staged.com and create an account and post a new staged video to your site everday. Staged gives you the ability to incorporate your adsense ads you are already doing, the banner to your website or blog (if you have one), and lastly a chance for people to create a Staged account which earns you money everytime someone does create a staged account.
    This should get you started earning Today!

      Great point.. I'm going to reach out to advertisers now because Amazon is not bringing in money, haven't made one sale from clickbank and the ringtones got a few clicks but not one single person signed up.

      The only way i've been able to make steady money is through Adsense and I've learned from other internet entrepreneurs not to put all you eggs in Google's basket. They may just decide to cook them and not give you any..

      I'm now getting between 1500 and 7000 hits per day (I will probably get 10k today).

      I have got to figure out a way to monitize this baby...

      How much do you recommend I sell ad space for? Based on monthly or clicks?

    Try this:

    Make a few new blog posts that are interresting to your readers:

    Beyonce car accident
    Beyonce plastic surgery
    Beyonce nose job
    Beyonce weight loss

    Those keywords is a little higher in ppc, so if you get someone to click, you will get paid more.

    The point of these articles are not to rank for the keywords but to make google understand that they are about the keywords after beyonce. You then try to lead most of those 700 people to your better paying keyword sites.

    A more aggressive adsense layout might also help.

    And doesnt B. have several products she promotes on her own? After all she is married to Jay-Z.

    I am thinking in terms of perfume, hair accessories etc with her name on it, or as a spokesman through commercials and stuff. Later you can also send stuff like this to your list.

    You guys wont believe this or maybe you will.. I think i found out why i wasn't making that much money via Google Adsense..

    this is pretty much a case study.

    I had a plugin installed called Wibiya that enables social media sharing. I thought it would be great because it shows you who's online and where they are logging on from.

    it also give you a "click to share" command when you roll over images.. and I believe it was doing this for google adsense ads.

    Now I was getting an average of 10 clicks per day. I find this odd being that I get over 4k impressions per day and I have my site Adsense optimized pretty good. I use a plugin that allows me to place ads in my site via PHP and it allows me to name my campaigns. I usually name them after the particular add and it's location. Ex. 728x90 Top Banner

    I went to check my stats using Statcounter.com and looked at my exit links to see what links were being clicked. I was shocked to see that in the last 2 days, I had 62 clicks on one of my banner ads and a host of other clicks on the others. It was around 70 clicks all together.

    Somethings not right but I deactivated the plugin and took me a quick nap. It's not much but my CTR went up .01% and I got 2 more clicks.

    I'm hoping this was the problem.. If so, getting 2k to 7k views a day with a steady growth, will get me some pretty good income with Google adsense..

    Wish me luck...

    Hola,

    Yes, I would most definitely recommend selling ringtones my friend, since she's directly tied into those with the music she makes. But I also think that the Amazon Associate program could work in your benefit too! Can't you sell songs through there? If you can, do it. If you can't, sell posters and shirts and stuff of her on them that you find on Amazon Associates and then team up with the iTunes affiliate program to sell her songs. I'm pretty sure they have one.

    Yup, ringtones indeed.
    I couldn't find a good non-mobile offer on Neverblue but all you need to do is just do google search for some lyrics, go to their site and see what ringtones offers are promoted there.

    I have an adsense site that does $7 a day from 150 visitors average. So you can do better with adsense. I think having some authority site link to you will help, and also experiment with positioning of the ads.

    There is no one size fits all you need to test different ad positions and sizes to see what makes a profit because sometimes small ads work better than bigger ones. I had good success with a small ad 468 width just below the blog post title (the place where the eye is naturally drawn on each page).

    Also Brian's post has some great suggestions.

    And you can capture leads whilst using adsense at the same time and doing some CPA :-) mixing it up can be good as people will figure out what they want to do when they get to your site.

    The list is where the the money is.

    Give away something for free on the site and capture all them emails.

    Do you have an analytics of the site? Males or females? Age range?

    There are loads of things you can monetize with:

    Ringtones
    Create a product about beyonce ex. Get beyonces figure, get a girl friend like beyonce. Be beyonce. Sing like beyonce. Dance like beyonce.
    Affiliate link to something about her. Her bio, cd etc.

    You wont believe what people will actually buy if they think it will benefit them in some way.

    All great suggestions here. Before evaluating how to monetize this site, you need to find out the quality of visitors, and then you need to come up with a plan on updating your site with new content to attract more visitors and increase traffic.

    In the current state of your website you will not be able to make any more money than you are already making from Adsense due to the fact that your website is probably not getting the enough attention of updated content as it needs.

    For any website to be successful you need good quality content. Updating content will bring you traffic, rankings, and money. By consistently adding content you can make money with either two ways suggested here: Adsense or CPA offers and building lists (which are much more profitable in the long run).

    Hope my two cents helped!

    Thanks
