    I have a blog focused on start-up resources that I've built over the last 10 months.
    Now, its picking up some organic traffic and occasional social signals.

    Everyday, receiving anywhere between 800 to 1000 page views. I do have some plans to increase this 1.5x over the next 5-6 months. Only monetization at this point is Adsense but the numbers are nothing great.

    Questions:

    1) Apart from CPA, how else can I monetize this site?
    2) Any good words about buysellads? I would prefer a CPM network but most of them require 100K pageviews for publisher approvals.
    3) With this level of traffic - how much should I be making on a daily basis?

    Please share your thoughts.

    try to either build your own subs list by giving something for free or try to go in as an affiliate in your niche and get sales this way :) people thinking of starting a business usually have some cash to get everything going, so they won`t have a problem with buying a cheap product from you :)

    I've tried CPA and made $0 only to increase the bounce rate. Building a list might be a good idea to monetize outside my website.

    PS: Is that your signature banner on this forum? That filled up my entire mobile screen.

    You should start making a list by putting an opt-in box on your blog!
