    Hi,

    I have MarriedAndMiserable.Com and BachelorForever.Com. Any ideas on how to monetize these domains? There are no sites as of yet.

    I thought about a contest to give away Cash for the best MarriedAndMiserable story. I am sure word would get out and surfers would come back to read the Horror Stories lol.

    Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Al

    You could target the married dating niche.

    you could do a free how-to manual on cheating on your spouse - then advertise your dating aff link.

    You Could All Give Them To Me :p .

    If I Were You, I'd Use The Married And Miserable Domain As A Self Help Site Where People Could Submit Their Story's On A Blog (Linked To Your Site Of Course :rolleyes:) And You Could Earn Money By "Recommending" Certain Ebooks To On That Blog.

    On The Main Site Itself You Could Have Articles About How To Improve Your Marriage, Making Your Spouse Happy, Ect (All Available In PLR Packages...That You Might Find Here If You Look Hard Enough)All With Adwords All Over Them As Well As Links To A E-book On That Subject (With You Clickbank ID Embedded Of Course :D).

    With A Little Bit Of Traffic That Could Make You A Nice Income, Just Make Sure To Send Me My Ten Percent First :icon16:.

    As For The Bachelor Forever Domain You Have A Great Domain To Tap Into The Aging Singles Market. The Same People Who Keep The Corporate Owners Of Products Like Rogain, Just For Men, Ect Rolling Around In The Money.

    You Could Offer Links To Self Help Books, Dating Advice, Looking Your Best, Whatever You Think Would Appeal To The Aging Singles Market.

    Not To Mention Once You Get Both Of These Sites Off The Ground, You Can Sell Advertising Off Your Site For A Awesome Extra Payday.

    If You Focus On Each Site Individually And Don't Half @$$ It, Your On Your Way To Some Big Money.

    Hope That Help Ya Out. You Can Thank Me Later :cool:

    Screw the help ideas BS. How about incorporating a list of "Chicks who have Ruined My Life." Sort of a Don't date List. Offer embarrassing videos of the spouse who did you wrong. Offer up as a bonus, the email addresses of the wrong doers. You could offer a membership to this site and I might be able to help with that. I have a great membership site application you could use. Oh well, all the best.

    I used to run a site called SheRuinedMyLife.com in like 1998 or so. It was a forum for guys who got screwed over by women. No shortage of those. We just kept it plastered with banners for our live sex feeds etc. The idea was that any guy who was there bitching was probably pissed, slightly misogynistic, and possibly undersexed.

    Allow user created content, it will do well.

    Target the IGN Maxim fitted shirt guys on the bachelorforever site - if they want porn they know how to get it at spankwire for free, that wont be your big seller, and also someone who is proud to be a bachelor is more often than not someone who is proficient at getting laid or thinks they are. I would push video games, seduction products, even pheromones (buy my stash cheap), and stuff as many cookies as possible. Those guys need things to re-affirm how cool they think they are. They socialize, are out of the house, need to look and smell good, etc. (not saying married people don't - but the logic is obvious) This market is 25-35 year olds with disposable income.

    Married and miserable (kind of redundant isn't it?) wants to cheat and not get caught, send them to fling, AFF, flirt, etc. Maybe ebooks on how to hide your money, flee the country, or make cyanide? Don't get out of the house much, have to hide things, need simple small stuff that wont show up on the credit card statement or get him bitched at. This is 35+ and probably missing their youth. Go to a strip club at 2 in the afternoon on a Wednesday and theres your guy. I think that the other poster was on with the rogaine and aging thing, this guy wants to be appealing to younger girls but doesn't have a ton of money, if he did - he wouldn't be miserable, he'd be divorced.

    Hello Again Everyone.

    That's A Good Idea, But How About Combining The Two?

    You Could Appeal To A Much Larger Demographic.

    The One's Who Want Their Marriage To Work Have Something, Plus The One's Who Want To Screw Over Their Ex Have Something Too.

    Sounds Like A Win/Win To Me.

    Oh And By The Way That Self Help B.S. Pays My Phone And Internet Bills Every Month :D

    Two words..."Ashley Madison".

    Look at Commission Junction. They are one of the advertisers there. They have banners, links, all kinds of stuff that say...

    "Life is short...have an affair."

    Personally, I'm not into the whole cheating thing, but the referrals pay well.

    How about some sort of social networking engine?

    web2 is all about getting other people to do the work for you afterall.....

    if i were married and miserable I'd be looking for a way out or a way to console myself. All the popular vices are there, gambling, porn, escort services ?
    or maybe.. marriage councelling p*nis enlargement, and sex therapy, lol

    These are some excellent ideas. A community where like minded people can vent also sounds useful.

    Guys, alot of awesome ideas. Thanks, let me sleep on them. I have had those domains for a while now. I knew that they had alot of potential and that someday I would do something big with them.

    As I mentioned above, my initial idea was to have a contest to give away Cash for the best MarriedAndMiserable story. I figured that a $5k top prize would guarantee alot of submissions and instant traffic. Back then, money wasn't as tight as it is now, so $5k didn't seem as high a number as it does now.

    I used to do some adult stuff and sell search traffic back in 1999-2003, but I got burned out and then I became a mortgage broker. Was good for a while, but now ......

    IMO, you're better off the self help route with a an option to go astray...

    Most people who are married and miserable will first arrive at a way to reconcile...

    If that doesn't work, then either cheating or breaking it off is the next step...

    Just make it a sequence and sell them on that sequence of events and not just go for one of the other...

    Set yourself up as the authority on options, let them decide what to do or what they want, and you just provide them the tools to carry out the job...

    But yeah...I think the self help route is more constructive by nature and will lead to much more constructive opportunities in the long run instead of you facilitating the destruction of a relationship...

    I guess we have you to thank then .... for dontdatehimgirl*com ... LOL

    Thanks. ;)


    Shit if you want to make a KILLING online ....just make a site that causes so much controversy and pisses people off. It's sure-fire success.

    Look at JuicyCampus*com .....that thing will be shut don't by U.S. Congress ...hahah

    Noet: If anyone doesn't know - it's been shrouded in negative controversy for letting people stay 100% and post ANYTHING about ANYONE ... in school campus' ...

    NOT GOOD!

    But it's the battle of the internet ...and it's a fucking monster to take on.

    Where do you draw the line of "Free Speech" ?

    I agree that the self-help thing will bring me better Karma, but DESIGNER has a point:

    "Shit if you want to make a KILLING online ....just make a site that causes so much controversy and pisses people off. It's sure-fire success."

    deth_by_uv has a point as well, appeal to a larger audience by offering a buffet of possibilities, definitely including self-help and social networking OR is the "A community where like minded people can vent" (Thanks Laz) direction a better plan?.

    As far as long-term monetization, am I better off building a more targeted or less targeted group?

    How much potential do you guys think this domain has?

    karma has nothing to do with money, in fact it usually works the other way. As far as "we have you to thank" whatever for..... You have me (and that crew of 12 people) to thank for adult affilliate programs, the mouse trap, the popup, the disabled back button, and recurring billing, and most other nasty tricks in internet marketing. I decided to check out who owns sheruinedmylife.com and its the same company I worked with under a different name. Not trying to be defensive, but 90% of the methods that are being used today were created by the porn biz. Just trace it back, or don't, its xpics publishing...Old dogs will remember the name.

    ps. congress isnt shutting down any website, especially not one about who's the biggest slut at kappa delta douche.

    Probably shouldn't have even responded, but I'm drunk, really drunk.. statistically speaking - from a marketing perspective, women are a much more challenging market, and anything that has to do with being married and miserable is going to be almost completely male.

    There are several sites that cater to women, but unless you're going to go up against ivillage (which you cant and never will be able to) don't bother. The best way to catch women is with domain parking.

    I have the luxury of many years in high dollar web marketing, a college education, and a predominantly female family. I am from a college town that seems to be dominated by lesbians, feminists and well informed women. Just the domain married and miserable is going to be almost 100% male.

    Controversy is not the instant bank it used to be, its borderline passe. Forget being a nice guy for a moment even if you are. marriedandmiserable.com is a decent domain but its got to grab them instantly or they wont come back.

    User generated content - people talking about what a bitch their wives are is a one shot deal. Guys are not into communicating excessively, they like to talk about what a snatch their wives are for a short time, but there is no real loyalty there. Who wants to read about how other guys wives suck day after day. Give them a place to voice a complaint and tell story once, then sidetrack them.

    Trust me on this, the only people who want to return over and over to compare their stories and discuss, are women and gays, and if you're not either, don't bother because both can spot frauds a mile away.

    Let them get it out of their system then offer then let them go on their way.

    I know why my girlfriend makes me mad, I don't care if you can relate. Men are social to a point, but they are not communal when it comes to emotions.

    Honestly I don't even remember what I typed because I am so drunk, but trust me: offer them a way out, a solution, or a distraction.

    Probably shouldn't have responded to this, but trust me I know. Married and Miserable is not looking for a solution or friends, they are most likely trapped.

    This post took me too long to type so Ill end it here. Let them bitch (user content) then offer them a temporary respite from a nagging wife, if you're going to offer adult content make sure its something they feel is accessible.

    Work with generalities and remember, the average person doesnt spend the amount of time online that you do.

    whatever .. Im back on the bottle.. but my genius is available for hire.

    Get the new CD by the black angels or black mountain and call me if your in Milwaukee

    Xpics theres a name form the past, I was in very good with them from the beginning musta been 1997/98. Man did i make some serious $$ with them back in the day. (Damn F.T.C)

    I dealt with Brian and Tom over there, Tom was the man.
    They were giving me all kinda of tips and tricks to use on my sites well before they became mainstream. Back then my pop ups were converting better than the websites. Lol.

    Anyway, this is my 1st post been lurking for awhile. I'm just an old duffer looking to get back in after a long time away. Cya around, I'll be back in the corner sucking up info.
