    Hi,
    as you may know football is very followed here in Italy so I had some ideas about building a very big football channel and try to monetize it.
    Building a channel and a related website is a not a problem for me, the point is I don't really know how I could monetize the traffic. Pratically my idea is to build a channel which has thousands of videos about football, recently held football matches etc... and to drive that YouTube traffic on a site. What's wrong with this is that I do not offer any extra content on the site (well, I don't actually know what to offer on the site at all) so I can't make the users fill CPA offers to access it since all the content (videos) will be hosted on the youtube channel.
    The only solutions that came to my mind are:
    1) not to upload every video I have on youtube, just, let's say, 40% of them: if you want to access the rest you have to complete the offer.
    2) build a normal site related to football and monetize it using adsense/PPC advertising
    The second one has the downside that I have no much time to manage a website and to keep it updated frequently.

    Let me know what you think!
    Any idea/suggestion/everything is really appreciated ;)

    Why not just upload up until the best bit (maybe just before a goal or after a bad tackle before he shows the card).

    Then end the video with something telling viewers to go to your site to watch it.

    On your site have a CPA gateway :)

    Yeah, the main problem with this approach is that I have to manually edit every video instead of uploading a bunch of them without having to spend time :)

    Try making a football forum. Put some adsense ads in the posts(if you use IPB forums I am pretty sure there is a mod for this). Another thing that I would imagine could make you money is adding a subscription service. I can't even imagine how much warez sites must profit from this. Charge maybe $20 for a year or like $60 for a lifetime sub. Promise something good like exclusive V.I.P. downloads such as being able to download football clips.

    Yeah, as of now the best idea is probably to create a betting-related site and promote some affiliation... until I get some better ideas :)

    Yeah, I'll keep you updated about the results. I've had a nice idea that I think will make my conversion rate a bit higher, but I'm trying to realize it in a way that will look *very* professiona to the user so it might take some time. Anyway I'll post here or in a new thread if I get some nice results :D
