    Maybe you want to provide more details on what your site is about, and where the visitors come from?

      I am not sure why all the secrecy, since by definition anything online is NOT a secret. Is it?

      But try to help you here, two things you need to do ASAP is a) make sure you have an opt-in form otherwise you are wasting your traffic BIG TIME! And a) make sure you add Adsense and some other form of ads to monetize your blog.

    If you're really at a loss then sell it on flippa. You coud easily make a quick 9-10K to invest on something you could actually work on.

    I would not mind doing that. But it started off as fund raiser, and I just gave some specifics about it over the internet. It is Defense related. I will tell you that

    Thanks for understanding, thanks for your help too !

    I can't sell it guys. It is a fund raiser that will not end, I'm trying to understand what else to do with it. That traffic is nothing compared to what it can get. that is barley scraping the surface of it. I'm just hoping my ISP does not shut me down. there is a lot of data coming out of there.

    How did you achieve to get this traffic in 3 1/2 weeks?

      I'm sorry Karoubalou, When I feel like I am on track, I will let you guys know . I am a Defense Analysts and I have knowledge about every big and small defense system in the world, (The site) would not work without my knowledge. If I were to sell it right now, the traffic would be gone. It would be like selling a lemon

    I would add contact form in it (just like a squeeze-page).. so you could capture their names and email address and start building your database for FREE.

    It's definitely worth building up a list.. Go for it!

      You can get a virtual private server with Hostgator for about $50 a month without limits.

      For now, while you are thinking about it, put some Adsense on there and see how that does.

        Don't panic ChristoferJ this kind of traffic is good for nothing. Your visitors are interested in the facts and stats you share with them.

        US defence is not a good niche sell to haha!

    Seems like you need a basic understanding of monetization. Spend 20 bucks and pickup a WSO product that broadly covers IM.

    CPA: A link to a site that pays you when people fill out info on the landing page the users go to after clicking the link on your site.
    CPC: Adsense, toss a little box on your site and you get paid when people click.
    Opt-In: They come to your sight, they sign up ("opt-in") for your mailing list, and then you emails them info on your fundraiser, and every now and then you offer them products. If they buy the product, you get a commission.
    Affilliate: Sign up for amazon affilliate program, make a post on that product. People click, they buy, you get $$$

    People are asking you about your site because they can't tell you which of the above to use...if they don't know a few things about your sit. Like, is your site dynamic (blog), or just a single static (a single page), etc.

    Based on what you said so far, most folks here are recommending you to either sell it to someone that could monetize it via the above. But if you wanted a REALLY simple stream of income, just setup some CPC ads and call it a day.

    What you should do now Christopher is create a newsletter for the people that come to visit your site. Be sure that after you create the newsletter, your intentions must be to make your subscriber feel like people and not just a number. You need to let your subscriber know that they can trust you. This is very important.

    What you need is 'Targeted Traffic' so the people who visit your website are ready, able and willing to buy Then you need an opt-in form to convert the traffic into leads and the leads into sales!

    Alot of good tips in here, get targeted traffic to your optin page and send them a series of auto responder messages, to get them to buy.

    On average for me, it take approx 7 times for someone to buy.

    Sometimes they buy quicker, sometimes they buy a bit later. All depends. Build a list your whole outlook and financial status will change if you do this properly.

    Christopher, out of curiosity, what do you ideally want to do with that traffic?

    Since the site is for a fundraiser, and there might be issues by putting on obvious advertisement, could you possibly have a sponsored section in in the back after people had given, as a thank you page?

    You might not be able to use it as a bonus on the landing page, but you could certainly set it up after. That way your charity could make more money.

    Also, see if the recipient get's a return sent by email for each donation. It is tax deductible in many countries. That could also be filled with links and sponsors.

    Fun situation you are in...

    Since you are an expert why don't you create an optin as many other warriors suggested, your optin should give the users valuable information on this subject, then create a product (ebook) or a membership system that users can buy to stay up to date with this subject, create a forum too.

    In the forum you can put ads if you want. the more posts your visitors create on the forum. the more pages indexed by Google = more visitors = more authority

    The site is not worth 12,000 as some poster mentioned, the site is worth $$ when it makes $$ or there is a huge $$ potential.. ex, if I create a site about funny pics or hot chicks, I might get 30,000 visitors a day but it might be hard to monetize it since they come for the pictures or videos, I can use CPA and other methods and if that made money then yes I can sell it and show a proof.

    How maddening, when getting that much traffic normally demands a ton of hard work, knowledge and sacrifice. And even that doesn’t always pay off. How maddening also that you want answers here but won’t show us the site of tell us much of anything. This is crazy.

    Affiliates sell other people’s products for commission. There are several places to find affiliate products that you can sell on a website that gets traffic. Including but not limited to:

    Warrior Forum
    ClickBank
    CPA Networks.(if you qualify; and to qualify, most want to see your site and the extent of your experience before accepting you.) To see the huge range of affiliate products available, go to OfferVault.com. You may get a little education there about CPA in general; or Google CPA for the education, and Google CPA networks for their websites. Think in terms of looking for products that RELATE to defense. What do defense fans like, collect, wear, read etc. Such related products may be hard to find but use your imagination; know your market’s wants and needs and you may find an affiliate product that fits in order to monetize your site.

    Good luck, lucky guy,

    What is your website all about? are you making it for money or just for exposure? well if both the number of visitors you get is pretty impressive. If you are selling something, the best thing you will do is to convert them into customers.
