    Hey guys, the way I'm currently monetizing is as follows. I have about 1.2 million views per month (90% male traffic) to a girly video that is pg-13 at worst on Youtube. I use a call to action popup ad along with annotations to direct them to my website with the promise of 'better' content. I have an adscendmedia content lock on the page with the more risque video.

    Out of the 40k/day that visit my YT video, I'm currently getting only 2k to come over to my website, and out of that only about 500 are even clicking on the offers and only 10% of those completing offers (much less some days).

    I can handle getting more people to come over from the video, but I think I could be doing better with the conversions. A few months ago I was using Adscend with an almost identical setup and doing much better. I tried Leadbolt but the conversions were just god awful so I abandoned them.

    Anyone have any other suggestions? I just feel I could be doing better with 2k visitors to my site than $15-20 and sometimes less per day I'm making with this video's traffic.
