    Hi there.
    I think it's time for ask your advice. I'm sorry if i'm posting on the wrong section of forum.

    This is my situation:
    3 or 4 years ago i set up a new website meshup , basically is a marketplace and ecommerce based on the 3d printing system.
    Users upload a 3d model and then they can sell or print their own prototipe.
    This site is like shapeways one. But only for the italian market.

    I set up a section for the blog, i make a lot of post. For a time it goes well, but in the last year the daily visit are decreased.

    Sincerely at this point i think that the best solution is to increase the monthly views and the sell the website (flippa or whatever..).

    What do you think i should do? Any advice are appreciated. Could you suggest me some methods/experiments to do?

    P.S. Sorry for my doggy english :confused:

    Thank you so much

    You'd need to spend $$$ on some SEO to boost it. You could simply contact sites in Italy selling that niche and offer paid posts on your site for $30/post and make a few hundred off it. Then when its full you could sell it off.

    Affiliate programs are a start. Also you will need buyers, so if your current platform is not making money for others, then you will slowly die. At the same time focus on seo and paid advertising. If you can't afford this, try to target small communities nearby (as long as they can make a profit from your platform) and then work your way up from there. It's like any other business, you don't go in it to make money you don't have, you go into business to transform the money you do have into a money making machine that pays for itself automatically.
