    My friend recently created this site www.awesomewasteofmoney.com. I am helping him run it. Can anyone think of anyways we can improve product sales or just in general? So far we get only a few hundred uniques a day. And adsense earnings for him and amazon affiliate earning are very low. It's a fun site so I feel like it should be doing better then it is.

    ***be warned there are alot of affilaite links on this site (dont know if it is a problem posting it here because of that***

    I wanna start a thisiswhyimbroke clone too! ha probably not want you want to hear, what are you using to run it?

    Promote it on reddit.. Also i just came across this user engagement sorta thing http://www.punchtab.com. I haven't implemented it yet but it seems pretty cool, you reward users for sharing with stuff, so like a free ipad or something

    That's a pretty cool site thanks for sharing that. Yea we got into this knowing we weren't the firsts and certainly not the last to do a site like thisiswhyimbroke, but what the hell it was worth a shot to us. We are using a customized theme. Not to be a dick but I'd like to keep it on the downlow, a little poking around and i'm sure you would be able to find it. Sorry just don;t feel like having other sites popping up using the exact same theme. :/

    But what I will tell you is its run on wordpress and look into using custom fields if you are planning on making one. It's will make your life a million times easier.

    I would say the best way to get more sales is to promote more through social websites.

    Or you can buy one of the products, and do a review on it or something.

    Lol, the "Brain Jello Mold" flipped my wig. He's right, that site is pretty cool.

    But dangerous. I was waiting for the redirect porn pop-up, malware download and auto-installer. It sends scary signals, that's probably why don't convert. Bet you have a high bounce rate. Put the jello brain mold at the top, and get rid of the facebook and twitter like bar thing. Fuck facebook, and fuck twitter.

    not too hard to figure out what theme that is. I am going to try one of these myself but with a new focus other than ZANY STUFF
