im think of using BANS for building few sites
i didnt decide yet if to give it a try or not?
Can't say I use the script, however in their member forums you have people earning from as little as $.55 upwards to $10,000 and possibly more. V3 just came out I believe.
i havent used bans yet. been using phpbay pro... and the commissions are trickling in...about $15 in the last month, and that wasnt with any promotions.
could be a great way to complement your MFA sites.
so i see noone made real money with this script
BANS (Build A Niche Store) is a website builder which enables you to create a network of traffic pulling, money making niche websites focused around the eBay affiliate opportunity.
I have a few sites which I have not promoted and I make about $50 a month from CJ.
I find that using wordpress is better as there is more traffic.
i have about 50 sites. I don't promote them at all. I average about $3-5 a day combined. Pretty sad, but it is still enough to pay for a few bills each month.
if you use it you still need to do the usual barrage of link building...
wow you guys are really making a lot of money with these BANS, 15 dollars a month thats impressive ill definately have to check that out
I do some affiliate marketing with ebay but have not used BANS yet. I have a few domains that were slapped by adwords and are doing nothing right now so BANS can be a way to monetize my domains that are just collecting dust. I didn't know BANS sites got traffic without any promotion.
Although I never used BANS I know they use an ebay feed. There are other threads in this forum about the ebay affiliate program but here is a quick overview of the commissions. Countries differ on payout structure and I am an US affiliate. There is a 7 day cookie on sales and you get 50% of the ebay fees. If you make more sales then the 50% commission increases. Most of these sales get you pretty small commissions but once in a while they are large.
The best part about being an ebay affiliate are the signups which has a 30 day cookie. If someone clicks your link and BOTH signs up and bids (they don't have to win the auction with this bid btw) you get $25.
One of my main reasons for not utilizing the BANS script is simply because of info overload since I tend to download/buy everything that pulls at me. But for the most part you see people earning small numbers (even in their members private forums) and they just throw up 20 sites in a week expecting the doors of cash to suddenly open.
I looked at a lot of the sites that these people throw up and it's definitely not targeted at all. A lot of the people just make mall style sites that try to cover everything under a main category - dumb.
Like someone else mentioned, it's just a script and you do need to work it like any other site that's profitable - which is also one thing I noticed people do not do in their forums.
For me, BANS is something that will come down the line. I'm just mastering my power of focus right now on things I started and never finished before BANS came to me.
So it is kind of the blind leading the blind in there at least. Like all things, if most people would just focus on something (BANS) hardcore till you actually followed it through to the end, I'm sure you or I would most definitely end up as one of the top dawg earners using the script with the combined knowledge and tools found here on Black Hat World.
Its hard to read anything you write, with this "Avatar" you are using
I have build 3 sites on subdomains and i made $40- on eBay and $2.98 in adsense in 3.5 week, i am going to be rich soon
alongside cooking stuffing?
And good ebay related posts in my blog?
3kish last month,
So far only $500 usd this month.
But bans is really only there to keep CJ off my ass.
I am yet to meet anybody that has made a killing from Bans. I think you will need hundreds of sites with fairly decent traffic to see any significant income, however if you have websites already I believe it can be an excellent addition to have a bans page.
I make about $200 a month no promotion with 1 ban website
Are you saying "with NO promotion" ?
How did your website get traffic then?
Purely by organic free search engine traffic?
Then for how much time it was online?
I must be missing something
Hi Samba, please elaborate on how you make money with your bans site and how you drive traffic to it? I mean I would only be interestd in Bans if I could make around 20k+ a month form it other wise its not worth my time. If your making 200 from one site then 100 sites would make 20K, so if you would like to share some of your knowledge that would be great, if not thats cool too.
Who cares about bans!!! Extra has the greatest avatar ever!!! LoL
TantricMaster, I think you got the wrong guy. CPUGEEK need to share or elaborate on his ways of making $200 a month using BANS not Samba. CUPGEEK, maybe you would like to share with us? Thanks in advance, LOL
