    Hi

    I am relatively new to Facebook, however over the past 6 months I've learnt how to build up an audience of thousands for my Facebook fan pages, and then deliver the fans 'engaging content.' My main goal is to redirect these fans to a .com domain, which has Adsense and CPA on it.

    I've built a fanpage in the tourism sector, which I think was a really bad choice. Adsense are paying me about $0.33 per click, and at that rate you will need thousands of visitors daily to the .com domain to make a living. Trying to sell hotel rooms to visitors is a very tough task indeed, and even if you manage to do it, the payouts are not good.

    I?ve recently started another fanpage in the pets niche (dog owners,) and am currently ?testing the water.'

    I can get targeted likes in their thousands for around $0.05 each. These likes are all from the USA, and tend to from an older demographic e.g. 40-64 (supposedly the people with the money to spend.)

    I've no doubt tourism was a bad choice for a fanpage niche. Could anyone recommend a decent niche to get into, that would make me a basic income?

    I thought about the really high paying niches like Life Insurance, which pay great for Adsense, however I think it would be really tough to directly target people who need Life Insurance on Facebook.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    I am not so sure about that. Everyone needs life insurance so you might just surprise yourself with that one.

    I wouldn't give up on the travel niche, just keep growing, launch a website, optimize your ad placement. Have nice big share buttons and focus on Facebook. Push your page with a modal pop up when people get to your site. Create gallery style image articles. "19 most breathtaking vacationing spots in the world" stuff like that. make them multiple pages for higher page views, and more revenue. If anything takes off and gets a lot of shares you'll get a nice traffic boost. It's doable, you just have to put in the legwork. Also start an email list and push the sign up form in the articles and you can market to them later.

    Thanks for the responses so far. My original ideas were very similar to yours Back2Basics. My site is full '10 of the Most Incredible Landscapes You've Ever Seen' type galleries. Some these photo galleries have been received quite well, with 2000 plus Facebook shares.

    I am using Commerical Commons images from Flickr - I don't want to start ripping of people's photos (like some sites do.)

    I'm still not really sure about the travel niche. I am targeting the USA which is 6000 miles from my home country. It's extremely difficult to persuade someone 6000 miles away to book a hotel room. There are few other monetization options that I can think of, other than Amazon, Teespring and Adsense (low and unpredictable revenue so far.)

    Basically the thousands of fans for my tourism site just want to look at 'pretty pictures' of a country I reckon most of them will never visit.

    Cheers
