How to monetize 10,000 blog visitors a day

30 replies
Hi,

I have a blog in the tattoo niche. It gets about 10,000 visitors a day but I'm having trouble monetizing it. I'm currently getting about 20% of the visitors to click through via banners to various tattoo products. There are some Clickbank products in the niche but the conversion rates are very poor.

Does anyone have any more creative ideas of how I would be able to monetize all this traffic?

Any ideas are highly, highly appreciated!

Thanks!

    Selling an ad space?

    Did you ever play with more customization to optimize the conversion?

      Would adsense work for you? CPC for tattoo related words isn't great but with that amount of visitors I would have thought you would get a decent return ... and the great thing about adsense in a niche like this is that any visitor to your site would get ads returned relevant to their local area (Eg: tattoo parlours in Boston)

    First off it's amazing to have 10K views a day, just pat your self on the back

    Okay so now that you have congratulated yourself, be aware that this is the most crucial thing that you will have to decide for your blog. (Picking How to Monetize)

    If you pick a wrong way not only you will make low amounts of $$$, you may loose many readers/views. But if you choose the right way you could be kicking back on a beach thinking about how that blog I made, so long ago, lead me to millions in my back account and me living the good life. (Maybe I'm Stretching the Truth)

    I'm serious when I say ads can make or break your blog. This is what I would do, if there is some online tattoo tatto store or a local tatto shop, sell direct ad space to theme. You email them or ask in perspn. "Hey I have a blog with 10k views a day about tattoos, Do you want ad space on it?" If that doesn't work out just use google ads. of possible. But direct ads. are always better.

    I hope this helps

    That's nice traffic and a great click-through rate, but I could see the challenge in finding the right advertisers, given your niche. Honestly, have you talked to any of your active members about what kind of products they would like to see promoted? It might be advantageous to go straight to your members and get some feedback.

    You can sell banner space on a monthly basis, I would recommend BuySellAds

    Try to collect their email, then follow up email to pitch them before convince them to buy anything from you and you can also sale related product to them later.

    find out the sources from where you are getting the visitors. Then see that are they targeted or not. If they are targeted then you should change the products that you are using in your blog. Use some other product to see the result.

      I would agree with Adsense. It is the easiest and common way in monetizing your blog site.

      Through Adsense you can also improve your blog site earnings.

      I hope I give you some ideas according Adsense.

      Good luck in monetizing your visitors! Let us know if you've discovered some other ways!!

    Hi

    With 10.000 visitors a day... yes I think you could sell Ads to Tatoo stores and professionals.

    If you know some of them in your area you could contact them and sell them Ads directly.

    Peace

    Well, if you have that immense number of visitors, you're a lucky person!

    Consider Google AdSense or BuySellAds. You need to sell ad space!

    With 10,000 a day you can have 300,000 a month. That could potentially bring you thousands, even over 10,000 $ a month... depends on CTR, CPC as well and visitor targeting.

    You have a good solid basis for monetization.

    Good luck!

    Would a geo based adwords add be best, if someone is reading up on tattoos then depending on content their is a high likeness they would want one or want more.

    set up adwords to advertise tattoo shops, make the advert geo based so, a London reader would get adverts for a London tattoo company.

    My guess would be that the keywords you are targeting are not "buyer" keywords, your just getting people looking for general information. I would suggest targeting women, tattoos are really popular with many younger women these days. Here is a clickbank product you might consider promoting 8350+ Tattoo Designs & Tattoo Ideas - World's #1 Body Art Gallery , perhaps try a short ppc campaign on a few related key words and see which ones convert, then buikd some pages on your site around them, promoting this or a similar product.
    good luck

    I'd be looking at more data.

    Where are the visitors coming from?

    What pages are they looking at, what are they interested in?

    Then you need to opt them into an email list and once you know what they spend money on in the niche, send them offers for those products from time to time and the rest of the time just provide value.

    hey man any idea what are the demographics?
    Really simple.
    1) Find out the demographics
    2) GO to offervault - find a suitable offer based on keywords like tattoo, body art, or anything related.
    3) Sign up with the company that provides the offer.
    4) Compare results with clickbank
    5) Later On You can actually flip your site on flippa if you have good results. X10- X12 your monthly income.

    6) - Sell ad space and have a boring same monthly income over and over.

    You can also have a fb page and twitter page. This way you are able to have more people to promote your cpa offer to.

      Right there... you need to know this first. As someone else said, the tattoo crowd are not in buyers┬┤ mood.

      But you could add a related offer connected by demographics.

      For example, for collage kids... netflix or some of the tv archive sites, energy drinks... (next day pill?)

      Let's do a little math. 10,000x30 days = 300,000

      If we assume a high 1 % CTR, we have 3000 clicks. I call this hardly rich. Maybe a nice monthly income, but not rich.

    why not create your own product on clickbank? take alook at the products on clickbank and see if and how you can create a better product..

    also are the products there clicking through to erm how to put it are they off the topic that brought them to your site, if they are i would certainly look at creating your own product that is directly relivent to the keyword that brought them there... id create my own anyway personaly

    just my 2 cents hope it may help you some

    You need to build a list and offer them products in your autoresponder sequence.
    Say in email 10, 15, 20.

    You will not only have a list of readers you can email in the future, you'll get sales through the autoresponder quite quickly.

    You can even charge people to email your list.

    I would definitely recommend building a list. Then if Google stop sending you traffic suddenly it doesn't matter, you already have a customer base.

    How about local affiliate marketing. Try doing a deal with some local tattoo shops and get paid to send customers to their shops. You can create a voucher/token people use when visiting the shop to track your customers. Tattoo customers can be lucrative since they'll come back to get more work done and will encourage other friends to get their tats done at the same shop.

    Use adsense and buysellads. Optimize ads position to get good CTR.

    I'd say it depends on the keywords they're finding your website with. It'd be awesome if you could 'feature' large tattoo parlors or stores on your website in major US / Canadian cities. They'd pay big money to be seen in front of thousands of interested visitors.

    That's an amazing amount of traffic. Besides adsense you might try out Adclickmedia

    Best of luck.
