Hello everyone,

I have a website in the stock market niche that has about 400 visitors daily and 500 email subscribers. I have had this website for about 5 months now and I am now starting to build up my audience rapidly within the last couple months. My question is what is the best route to go when it comes to monetizing this site?

Just a little more detail about the site I post daily videos and show people my trades that I take in the stock market and I have proved myself over and over again that i am a profitable trader. Currently I only have adsense on the site and I make about $200 a month from that alone and I feel like I could be making a lot more money with this site and I was wondering if you guys have any ideas? I have a couple of my own ideas but I wanted to see what you guys thought. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks

    There are Clickbank products related, trading platforms that you can promote.

    Also if you look around, there are a bunch of high ticket offers (training, coaching etc ...) in this market that you can promote as an affiliate.

    Just do a Google search for stock market affiliate programs

    Also .. .why not start your own coaching or paid newsletter alerts service of what you are already doing?

    UW, if you are a profitable trader, then you should stick to trading and make a killing there.

    You can also can come up with a stock trading course detailing your trading methods and sell it in a package - video, pdf, etc. You may even use Google Hangouts to share how you do your live trades. You can make another killing by selling your course.

    So where do you think the S&P is heading? 1800?

  • Create a membership group for 'exclusive' stock tips, ect. Or a more in depth information on how you choose your stocks, or whatever.

    Charge $25 per month and get people to join.


    There are also affiliate programs and clickbank products you can push, if your own membership group isn't right for you. Though I think a membership group is perfect for your situation.

    I don't want to do clickbank or affiliate offers because I want to teach them my strategy, not someone elses. Also most of my info has been given away for free and I feel that is why I am rapidly building a big audience. I was thinking about a membership site but I dont know the best way to go about doing that. Thanks for all of the replies!

      If you're on Wordpress, check out WishList. If not, you can setup a membership site through any number of vendors.

        Host a Google Hangout to your list. Perhaps you have a colleague who would join you that you could promote his/her stuff for a commission. Depending how good your hangout/webinar is, you may be able to make some decent conversions and commissions, especially if you have a good offer. Just an idea.

        I was planning on using s2member, would you recommend wishlist?

    This is a proven market that is accustomed to paying for information. You're doing a disservice to yourself and your visitors by offering Google Adsense because, essentially, Adsense is sending them to competitor's offers where they will learn someone else's system. This can easily be a $10k+/mth business. I just sent you a PM

    +1 for the membership site idea, that's definitely the right approach. Wordpress' S2member or wishlist I have heard are both good.

    good trading has 0 to do with predicting.

    most people will not pay more than $200 for it. Then it's a pain in the backside

    "i made one trade and lost $10"
    "can you help me open an account."
    "I demand you phone me or i reverse the payment"
    "can i make $250,000 per annum from my $3,000 account...why the *** not!"

    go and have route canal it's more fun. Retail is the pitts.

    You can also can come up with a stock trading course detailing your trading methods and sell it in a package - video, pdf, etc. You may even use Google Hangouts to share how you do your live trades. You can make another killing by selling your course.
