    Hi Everyone,

    Just discovered this forum and everyone seems to be great at helping one another out as i hope to be able to do one day!

    I have had my Car Blog/Online Magazine for 8 months now but had to restart it and other interruptions along the way however, i have now have time to put most my effort into it as i want it to be a great source of information for people.

    I have some great ideas on monitization etc but i want to know what people think and any criticism (As thats the most useful to learn from) you may have and how i can get the site bigger.

    The site is called FullRevs and you can see it on facebook or Online
    Any help would be hugely appreciated!

    Thanks :)

    Tom

    Your site looks good.
    To grow you have to identify your market, what kind of people do you want to attract? Photographers, car owners, kids,... ?
    Once you know who you want and for what purposes you want them, then you can easily find out where most of those people hang out, and maybe even launch FB ad campaigns.

    Thanks man,

    Ive been wanting to target 18-30 years olds as they are the ones i could sell afflicate services too and once i get the online shop running products aswell.

    For the time being i tried paying for facebook reach out on a video which has gone quite well and quite cheap but is it just a question of time, as i know these things don't happen over night

    hey buddy; site looks good!
    now as I can see you are in car niche!
    You can monetize your site with any of the following

    1] Adsense (generally cpc bid in car niche is pretty good. so that can be a good option for you)
    2] Amazon ( Search the best possible products on amazon relevant to your niche and promote them)
    3] Pay per call (this one is my personal favourate. Search in offervault, you will surely find some Pay per call offers related to car loan or vehicle insurance. those guys pay upto 40$ per single call which qualifies their criteria.)

    Hope that helps!

    In addition to Amazon you can add live Ebay car auctions and even sell used cars via Ebay motors with a plugin called Easybay pro.
    The auctions count down in real time and when one auction finishes it will replace it automatically - set and forget.
    You can add live auctions to posts, pages and there is a widget.
