When I first started in the movie/TV show niche, it was pretty lucrative, until the networks started frowning upon publishers who supported this type of content. As a result, it has left many webmasters digging around looking for means to monetize their website as best as they can because many got the boot for having copyrighted content. I was one of them. Personally, I took a big hit when the ToS of many well known networks changed their policy. I tried many alternatives out there, but there was simply no substitute nearly as good. I was making only about 30% of what I originally made, which later somehow even with the same number of visitors, I was making less than 15% of what I originally made. So recently, I have done some experimenting and think I have found the perfect mix to monetize Movie/TV show sites. Although the profit isn't as nearly as good back when networks accepted this type of content, it has at least recovered back at least 40% of what I originally made (to be honest, is actually really good). And today, decided to share how I monetize my Movie/TV show niche related sites that DOESN'T involve any referral blanking of faking because how you will be monetizing your content is 100% acceptable with the programs I am using to monetize my visitors for maximum profit. I know when I was searching for methods on BHW, I was looking for numbers, to get an idea. Before the changes, I was making anywhere between $80/1,000 visitors. With the mix I have come up with, it lies between $20-$40/1,000 visitors. When I was using a single network like Leadbolt, I was only making about $5-$8/1,000 visitors. So I think the results are pretty good. Here is the method I use on my websites. Realize, there is always room for improvement and you could easily expand with the idea I am presenting. The Idea of the Method The idea is to maximize profits. In order to do that, I incorporated three levels of monetization in multiple fronts. In the landing page, I display an offer from a PPI program that is in a form of a video player. There is no gateway at all. Yet. (earned commission) Enable Pop-up ad from being part of an affiliate program with a movie player upon first click of the visitor (commission) I enable registration so I can compile their email. Put a message saying, "You must be logged in... blablabla" After a user finishes registering, by default, I send them an email with their account information, but also a note saying that they can update their account to a Premium account from a 3-rd party site free trial (more commission). Now when the registered users log in, a gateway will activate saying they must verify to show that they are a human being. (even more commission) I look around for movie related offers and occasionally send them an email. Although I haven't had much success, yet, it is still worthwhile to experiment with various offers. (possibly even more commission) Some random movie related advertisement on the sidebar of the website. (more more more commission) This is pretty much the foundation that I use. I find that presentation and the design of the website is the only real big factor of affecting the earnings so be sure to use a good web design and logo. I can already feel the questions coming like "why is the gateway level 2 and not on the landing page?" Reason because the majority of movie sites have gateways on their front page. So by having a PPI offer on the landing page, you can even monetize the visitors who would originally leave instantly, would they have seen a gateway. You may also say, why would someone register? You'd be surprised. The people who would do the content gateway on the landing page, would be the same people who are willing to register to go through the gateway in the back-end. I know it may sound odd, but I have done quite a bit of experimenting and I have found this way to be the most rewarding. Feel free to share how you monetize your Movie/TV Show sites and so on and how your figures are. I've seen some threads in the past saying that "Movie/TV Show sites are dead," but it is not true. All it requires is having the perfect mix of movie related affiliate programs, and it could still be worthwhile. For those asking what program I am using to monetize the content, I am using a variety of programs, not just one. For those interested, just hit me up. Hopefully those who operate a movie site are now convinced that they are able to earn more with their sites.
