    Sorry, first post here, hope it's in the right category. I understand the value of traffic, totally get that. Here's what I have...
    I'm uploading free things to someone site along with a few hundred other people. There is no charge to download the files I create (Graphic Design styled work). I tried a little market test last week and found my files are receiving 1,000 views a week, including 300 downloads a week. I can easily double or triple those numbers. When my files are downloaded they are zipped. Once downloaded and unzipped, they include 4-5 design files. I can add a text file, link, or even an advertisement type file that most people would view and click. My question is, what would you include? There's an opportunity here for advertising, affiliates, click throughs or something. I'm willing to listen to anyone with legitimate ideas. No scams, just realistic business ideas. Again, I can easily drive those downloads up. I can create more to be downloaded in my sleep. I don't believe the numbers are in charging, I think there is an advertisement opportunity of some type. Thanks in advance.

    Ok, after looking through a ton of post on my first day here, I see that asking this question was a no no. Sorry, will figure it out. Thanks.

    Why would this question be a no no. This is a good question. A bad question would be "how can i make $50000 by next month"

    Now awnsering your question. I would make it so they have to enter in their email to get access to the files. This way you can email market to them

    I have a pretty good idea of advertising. People are paying to advertise on anything that moves or doesn't these days. (I've seen advertising on job site porta potties, escalator steps, etc). Do you think it's feasible to get people to pay for an ad inserted into my files? They are already downloaded so they'd be guaranteed to at least be viewed. So far, no one else is doing it. Like I said, I've already done a market research that proves I can easily get 1,00 a week with little effort. More effort and I could continue doubling those numbers. This is something new that's not being used yet so there's nothing to go by. Thanks for the advice, so maybe I can ask how to generate $49,000 a month. lol.

    Don't necessarily do advertising.

    Here's how I'd do it:
    1. They see your work
    2. They download it
    3. You capture their email somehow
    4. You market to their email - offering graphic design services
    Or;
    1. They see your work
    2. There is a watermark on the images with your website
    3. Your website NEEDS to be unintrusive
    4. Give them the unwatermarked images on your website
    5. Capture their email (to tell them when you have more images up)
    6. Have unintrustive advertising on your website
    7. You email them once a month - check out my website
