    I have a blog at the moment, and it's whitehat, and I have OIO Publisher purchased so that people could buy ads directly and instantly. But my niche is really.. hard to monetize? To be exact, it's about Korean Music, i've gone ahead and emailed online store owners that sell Korean CDs / DVDs. but I never get an reply. Get around 1000 pageviews a day and 300-400 viewers a day, most of my traffic come from twitter... any ideas? Thanks.

    Sounds like you are getting traffic to your blog but aren't targeting your search for advertisers. Build a page in your blog and target it for tags and keywords on ' advertisers ' and the like, pushing the process of how your advertising program works...then, let them come to you, as well as re-email those people you contacted before with a link to your process. It looks WAY more professional that way.

    Pushing the process of how my advertising program works? I'm not sure what you mean. I have a page for advertising on my blog already!

    Edit: Also, OIO Publisher has an affiliate program that gives commision to people who sells the ad for me, do you guys know where I can find affiliates? :) Thanks.

    configure your site to use a banner rotator... use atleast 3 different offers and see which one is converting then modify accordingly...

    I'm not doing CPA, i'm selling Ads directly instead of doing CPA.

    That's exactly what I was referring to. IF you already have it established, you may want to ask yourself if it is ' targeted for keywords and tags to grab advertiser's attention? ', as it clearly isn't if it isn't working to do just that.

    It is hard to say without seeing the site but, it sounds like you need to adapt your content a different way, as the deal simply isn't attractive enough to the market you are pushing it to. Could be that your blog doesn't have any authority ranking and they have no interest from that perspective as well. Do the analysis and figure out what isn't working. It can be a number of factors.

    In your direct contacts, if they aren't responding, you are probably spamming them in their opinion due to your approach. Try something different. Not to say you are doing this but in most cases, people generally tend to state whatever comes to mind without thinking anything more than " this person has what I need and I'm going to ask him for it. "

    Review your previous communication tactics and if your blog is representing the best preception of what you want to project from it.

    Good luck with it either way.
