How would I go about monetizing this quiz site with CPA?

    I've got a quiz site which is bringing in quite a bit of traffic daily due to social network shares etc

    Anyway, I've thought of different advertising methods for the site, which include:

    Side banners, header bar, exit intent popup, exit redirect plugin, scrolling footer bar, call to actions in content etc..

    So there are plenty of ways to get the visitor's attention, that's the easy part, but what I want to know is where to send them.

    The site is a fandom quiz site, so clearly, anyone doing a quiz is going to be interested in that topic, so would general affiliate products and cpa offers work? Or would it be better to just stick to something very closely related to the quiz they are taking?

    This site is getting thousands of visits daily, and there's the potential to scale it up much more, so being able to monetize this traffic would be good.


    Any suggestions?


    Thanks.

    There are cpa quiz offers. Perhaps makes sense to mix them in with your ones.

    You can use sites like http://www.affpaying.com to see what CPA offers are available.

    You mean those CPA offers that are categorized as surveys?

    affpaying is just an aggregator of offers. You will have to do a search of the offers to find what you feel is the most appropriate and then join that network.

    After looking through the offers section of 3 CPA networks I'm joined with, I can't really see anything that would pass as a quiz, only stuff like "pepsi vs coke" "gift card giveaway" etc

    You need to be a bit cleverer than that.

    Lets say you have a quiz on star wars find a star wars themed offer.

    There aren't offers for every topic I have a quiz on, so I don't think that would work out. I am looking to monetize every category, not just the extremely popular ones which have CPA offers available.

    Well you have to start somewhere and sorting each money page manually will make you way more than looking for a 1 hat fits all approach.

    Maybe blackhat CPA landing pages would work.

    You could maybe lock the quiz result? Not sure if that would work. You would only lock for each visitor once.

    I was going to do that, but the quiz plugin I'm using only allows shortcodes to be put in the result area, so I'd need a content locker for wordpress that has shortcodes, I don't think there are any.

    Gotcha. Then you would need to edit the plugin for that.
