    That's quite a nice traffic for only 5 page.
    Did you try all the different possibilities of ad placement / blending ads / text/contextual ads ?
    If you try to flip it, usually having such a low income will result in buyer not giving you a lot. So I'd say try to optimize your adsense CTR.

    Promote niche relevent CPA offers, get a clickbank product promote that, if theres valuable content, content lock it, get paid for downloads by getting peeps to do surveys before downloading any files. Rotate and place ads in different places.

    monetize the website, think of it as a page you would like to visit and possible click things. What would attract you and do it exactly that way!

    I connect dots..
    Home Page:
    Try to reduce the amount of G adsense. How many blocks do you use? ... if 3 - switch to 1 text block. Keep testing. I wouldn't suggest to add more advertisers (adsense is the best). Improve the content :)
    ... 3k a day - 90% from organic search?

    the ctr is ok to be honest for not even being optimized yet. with tweaking you could prob get that ctr to 2-4% try using specific ad-sense ctr themes make sure the ads are relevant etc tweaking ad placements and all that.

    this is good work you have done you now have a formula which you can use to make a few more similar sites in different niches or similar niches, make like 10 sites that perform the same and you are set until you can expand your business and move into other IM ventures.

    Your CTR is good for a long term legit run. And you are right - you should not go for CTR themes, definitely.
    It's anyway a very good success to get so many page views for a MNS with 5 pages.

    Anyway, one of the best way to monetize it is to make your own product and to sell it on the site. This works well for me. For example, I have one such site, that had just 1100 page views in last 30 days (you have that in 8 hours :)) and made more money than your site will in 30 days by current earning ratio.

    On the top of that, you can combine this with Adsense together, so it's no risk for you!
