But I also have a couple of domains that I developed just to have fun with, and do what I like. Both are blogging sites about poignant issues in society -- guns, wars, some politics, high profile criminal cases, economy, etc. ... Anyway, both were just published a month ago. On one of them, I'm starting to get a following on social media outlets. It's a WordPress site. But I made a YouTube page for it, and in 3 weeks, already have 2,000,000 video views, and over 500 subscribers ... and I'm doing nothing special but putting up a couple videos a day.
So the obvious question. While I'm doing this, is there a way to make money doing so, seeing as I'm not selling a service or product? Are CPA, banners, ads, links, etc., the only way to make money? Do I have to have "x" number of unique visitors/day to really get something done -- or is there some metric I should go by to see if I can gain sponsors? Is there a preferred way of doing so, or is there another way of making money I'm unaware of?
Any guidance in this regard would be greatly appreciated!
Just to clarify the niche, although I really do NOT want to alienate any Warriors by views I have on issues; I really don't get into the American Dem/Repub thing ... I just blog on issues, on this particular domain, and offer my opinions about them. Here's an excerpt from the About Us page:
We have issues! Serious issues! We also have solutions! Join our causes for the betterment of our nation, and help us restore the American dream. The wehaveissues.org (WHI) family of ordinary, everyday people gives real Americans a voice in a political discourse held captive by big business, special interest groups, and various lobbies. We work together to realize the progressive promise that we believe our country can achieve. In short, our goal is to restore the American dream through our civic duties by actively engaging in the political process that has become inundated with malfeasance. |
“Is this just another site that complains about Republicans or Democrats? I’ve seen enough partisan bickering already … “Not at all! Our organization is about raising awareness of issues and engaging in dialogue while suggesting solutions. Together, we can all put our ideas together and make ourselves heard! Our purpose isn’t to disengage those from supporting a political candidate of any party; in fact, it’s quite the opposite! We encourage activism and advocate everybody to engage and become involved in their civic duties. Everybody should know their local politicians and where they stand on issues they’re concerned with.
