    Hi guys, hope you can help.

    I made a tattoo site last year that offers free tattoo designs to print and download. Currently getting 70k UV/mo. I'm making about $100/mo from adsense and nothing from affiliate but I'm probably not offering the right kinds of products (Farmville, Chopper tattoo).

    I know freebie users don't convert well but I was hoping someone might know how to make more cash at this as it seems to be a lot of users.

    Hey

    There are a lot of people looking to advertise with your site. Start promoting it and sell links to your site. With 70k UV you could get someone to pay a decently high price for links and even banners. Most likely more than adsense.

    A good place to start would be buysellads.com, however there are a lot of other sites and forums that also promote this.

    Good Luck

    Set up a membership package where members can subscribe and gain access to download your more Premium Tattoo Designs. Also you could look to selling merchandise like t-shirts, mugs, pens etc with the Tattoo design printed on them.

    Check where your traffic is coming from and contact tattoo studios to suggest advertising space.. offer 1 month for free and if they get more business charge them $50 / week or something...

    Besides affiliate offers, you should start building your mailing list soon. This way, you will be able to inform users about new content and also sell them something via email. It shouldn't be hard to build a list in your niche - all you need to do is ask them to register before they can see templates.

    70k UVs and only $100? Average goes around $10-$50 per 1k

    Whats your CTR, whats your EPC? Check your ad placement, I would honestly expect you to make at least 1k from 70k views/month...

    There are literally hundreds of items you can promote.

    - Promote tattoo related clickbank products
    - Find tattoo care/anti-fading products on amazon and promote them via amazon affiliate
    - Find tattoo removal products and promote them via amazon
    - Promote tattoo concealers (amazon or other affiliate programs)
    - Find temporary tattoos for kids/children and promote them (amazon/commission junction)
    - Promote custom skins for cell phones (commission junction)
    - Skin piercing supplies (earrings, studs, etc.)
    - Tattoo ink

    This is the problem with people who use AdSense. Many of them forget how to monetize their sites thinking AdSense will do all the work.

    I would upload all the tattoos in packs, categorized by some genres, and upload them on uploaded.net . They pay 40Euros (~ $50) for 1000 downloads, and you can get commissions from premium sales too. I'm making 15-20E/day with 2500 UV/day.
