    I have this rap battle website where users can register and battle against other emcees inna text battle. Users vote on whose rap was better. Also looking to add a forum like BHW.

    Now that I have this site, what do I do?
    Where do I go to in order to get ads on my site?

    Basically this: How can I start making money off of this site?

    Any help or suggestions would be great!

    It sounds like your site would be great with social media traffic. Have you created FB page, Twitter and other social accounts for your site?

    For ads, find websites in your niche and contact them one by one.

    You can also use Google, Bing and Yahoo ads for example to drive traffic.

    Easy. Develop a betting system where you keep a percentage of the money and enjoy the show while sipping a cold one.

    if you want a niche site for moneymaking - your niche is terrible for that.

    Is the site fairly new? Why don't you focus on growing it first? Find ways to increase traffic. The money will come later.

    Just my 2cents.

    My niche is not terrible, if you only knew the market for rap nowadays. For real.

    Having a site is not enough, you need to optimize your site to get traffic and eventually ads.

    That's a good start! Also look into Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and music social networks.
    You can also drive traffic using music/rap forums by posting your link in the signature and creating useful threads and answering people's questions

    it's terrible for a niche site created just for moneymaking.

    I would not focus on money quite yet, treat it as a passion, As you have interest in the niche. Get any social media, Twitter, facebook etc. Just start looking for people in your niche and follow them, Look for underground rappers in forums or on sites like hotnewhiphop. Don't worry about ads or money until the site is generating traffic. Then try and monetize. Just keep getting your site out there, and as more and more come then it will spread. As long as the site is easy to use and have a good setup for the battles then it shouldn't be a problem. You'll get all the online tough guys rapping.
