Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I originally had a small 5-ad Adsense tower ad on my template which didn't do much, a few dollars every month maybe. Over the last 3 weeks I had my template changed and built in 20 or so advertisements from Commission Junction. I have generated 330,000 impressions and $0.00 sales!
My web hosting company is telling me that I have 50,000 unique visitors a month. Various Internet experts have been telling me that my website should be making tons of money, but so far nothing has worked.
I am wondering whether now I should switch to over CPM-based advertising, so I can at least get paid for my impressions. Someone suggested that with 50,000 uniques I should be able to attract direct advertisers as well, which should be a lot more lucrative. But I figure that will require a whole other infrastructure: a media kit, advertising sales, etc., something I am not really able to handle by myself.
In addition, I am also considering to put up a classified ad section on my site with free and paid classified ads. Co-registration is another option, as well as creating ebooks from my thousands of pages of content. In addition, I am currently building a video channel for my website that has monetization built into it.
Is there anyone out there that has the experience and knowledge to turn this website into a successful revenue generating venture?
Looking forward to your responses....
