    What are some good ways to promote a paleo recipe site? I'm already promoting a clock bank offer and making some sales per week.. What else can I try?

    Promote or monetize? Adsense if you want to show ads on your site and make money, Adwords if you want your ads to show and to drive in traffic.

    Sorry I was in a hurry when I wrote this because I'm at work. I meant monetize not promote :) I'm using Instagram to drive traffic at the moment.

    Create an eBook with "The 25 Best Recipes for a Healthy Lifestyle" or something along those lines. Take your time creating the eBook because you actually want to have a happy audience.

    Create a blog post, put banners up, etc... advertise the fact that you are giving away a FREE eBook in exchange for an email address.

    Once the user submits their email, send the eBook to the email and thank them greatly for signing up for the list. To make sure your list is the absolute best, make sure you follow all rules for email marketing. You will want to setup periodic emails. Lets say you send out one email the first week, two emails the second week.. then here is where you make money: on the third week send out an email offering a DISCOUNTED weight loss recipe book, a CPA offer for healthy eating, CPA offers for recipes, anything.

    Your email list will want to complete your offers and whatnot.

    Hope this gave you a few ideas! :)

    adsense has worked well for me, there are a lot of advertisers in the recipe niche.
    i did CPA also but you need the right offer.

    Give content locking a shot. Put a locker on the book. Additionally, you can also tease your visitors by give them the ability to read a certain portion of the book and then have them complete an offer to read the rest of the book.

    As many said here, Adsense would be your best bet.
    Amazon would do some good if done correctly.
