    HI I have a rap site and building an email list of 15-20 emails everyday I was wondering if you have some advice on what exactly I should blast to these kids in order to make some cash... Anybody have any experience with this?

    What kind of email list are you building? It is an email list of rappers or people that listens to rap?

    Thanks I'm going try out emusic. What's a good network to go with for CPA locking. I used to use CPA leads buy their payout is for homeless people!

    Yeah, I'm not sure how many people realize Itunes have an affiliate program. I'm not part of it so I don't know how good they are but it might be something you want to check out

    There is a "become famous like justin beaver" product on click bank you could recommend. xD

    They'd prolly unsub quicker than Usain Bolt does a phat chick.

    Look for things that are related to the music. Try bongs, pipes, "legal buds", shoes, bling.. etc. Also if you've gathered enough members, try and find a gig to do some promotion for up and coming rappers. It's all within your reach, you've got the targeted emails.

    Yeah, everything depends on the ability to target that specific market. But having something related to uploading original rap tunes and having viewers rate the songs might help generate interest.

    How about this for a potentially great way to keep visitors coming back AND interacting with the site...? An interactive remixing utility, where individual tracks can be switched around and faded up or down in the mix. Users can create their own mixes of tracks uploaded by 'featured artists'.

    Obviously it would require coding, but it should be a fairly straightforward job for a skilled freelance programmer, and it could potentially turn your site into THE place for rap fans and wannabe producers to hone their skills.

    (I'm quite tempted to do something like this myself, but rap is not even remotely my scene.)

    For all I know, there may well be a plug-and-play solution already out there which you could just plug into your site, but IMHO the best approach would be if you could brand the remixing utility as 'your own exclusive app', and maybe even allow the fans to link directly to it from their homepages / myspace profiles / whatever. That way your site could go viral very swiftly, and become a serious authority site within the niche.

    From there on in, the sky's the limit. Your own branded merchandise could follow... Maybe even a record label to release the best tracks & mixes created by your users!
