    hi,

    i have a sports live streaming site that is doing quite good in terms of traffic, now i want to earn some money from this site. I don't want to use a content locker, because that people don't really like it that much.

    What can be the best possible way to earn some money on autopilot.

    Daily traffic ranges from 3000 to 5000 visitors, 70% from US, Canada and Uk.

    Advices and Suggestions will be highly appreciated..

    Regards,

    Sniper

    If you don't want to promote a content locker (you should at least test one, though, as I used to be in the live streaming biz and it worked well) then try some "Watch TV on your PC" offers - they can convert quite well, too.

    Dude, are you serious?

    Sports memorabilia like autographs, jerseys, tickets, balls sell like hotcakes! It's a bread-and-butter niche.

    Get some affiliates selling jerseys, have good deals, make it easy to buy and check out, have the ads play during games with relevant teams

    2) Can you tell me some good affiliates for selling sports stuff which i can add on the sidebar?

    I personally would go with content locking.... Know a guy who has similar site like you with similar traffic and he is doing pretty well when it comes to money. Meathead product has pretty good reviews, go for it. If it does not work, you can easily turn it off and that's it!

    The kind of guy watching sports on a stream usually would rather be watching it at a bar with a date, but likely doesn't know how to get one.

    It just needs you to know who is using the site and think like they do.

    A guy that wants to bother to find a date to watch the game is clearly not that interested in the game itself. A guy that enjoys the company of a random girl while watching the game is:
    1. overcompensating
    2. not a fan of football (one of those "commercials at Super Bowl" type deals)
    3. not a fan of women

    #3. in particular is interesting, because the guy with the date actually doesn't want the date, and his date would probably want to go home with the guy at the bar who bought the team's jersey.

    Dating might work.. find pictures of girls wearing the jerseys of the teams which are playing. "This Lakers girl wants to fuck you" and so on.

    That's what I would do to monetize all that traffic. Content lockers don't have to be annoying. With a custom locker you can make it look like part of your site and not an advertisement.

    Hmmm they are on their pc watching sports. So they like using computers and watching sports. I would try and promote PC sports video games.

    I used to post on a few sporting websites in the UK and one thing they loved were the gambling free bets such as '£10 free with no deposit required' for bingo etc.. They pay £5.50 for a free sign up too (and download) Im sure there are ones for the US and Canada market too.

    I monetize my sports traffic by sending them to PAID streaming services :)
