    I recently started a movie streaming website which will update with a new episode once a week. I'm currently using CPA ads but I don't get any leads. What's the best way to monetize this website?

    It's been online for 5 days now and I've had over 1K visitors already (and it's still growing each day).

    I don't want to use CPA survey stuff because that'll scare off any visitors.

    What's the best way to monetize this website?

    Even though you don't want it I would really recommend some kind of gateway.
    I use it for my sites and it's really worth it, you need to make a nice looking gateway though so that you don't scare away the visitors.

    How much visitors do you get? And how much do you make/month with the gateway?

    Mind explaining what a CPA Redirector exactly is?

    I'd have to agree with tap1on - I would use a gateway too.

    I'll add though, that instead of setting up to pop-up right when they open the page (as this may just cause them to back out). Have it pop-up once they are on the page for a while.

    The logic behind this is, they will have already begun to view the content. So they will know that you actually have the content available, and since they have already started to watch it, will be more inclined to fill out the brief survey or email submit in order to continue watching it.

    Hope this helps :)

    Thanks,

    Is it possible to have them fill out one survey each month? Like some sort of 'subscription' for the website. You have to do one survey every month but you'll be able to watch all content for that month.

    Good idea?

    Yes this is possible with bhcb (blackhat code breaker). You can set the duration of the unlock - whether it be one hour, one day, a week, a month, etc. As well you can decide whether you unlock just that one video, or the whole site, or whatever. It's a good investment imo.

    Whatever you'd like. I'd assume other products are similar.

    I haven't used network gateways, so I'm unsure about the customizability of them are.


    I like the idea. If you get people to do it the first time, and they use your site for the whole month, or whatever period you decide on; chances are they will become loyal to your site and be willing to fill out another offer at the end of the month.

    Any free options for a script like this? I don't want to spend $60 on something that I might not use.

    Yes there are alternatives. If search "alternative to bhcb" without quotes in google, the first thread that comes up is a bhw thread (sorry, I can't post links on here yet). A couple of the members have supplied the code for free on how to do this.

    I don't think it's as "pretty" and its definitely not as customizable unless you know how to code, but if you aren't worried about that - then at least it's free.
