    Hey guys,
    I recently started up a fitness blog, although I know it's a very open niche, I chose to start off with the topic of fitness
    since I can write posts easily, making it faster for me to learn the world of IM.

    anyways, to date I have about 3500 or so twitter followers, my tweets are all scheduled, i do about 2 posts a week

    my blog receives around 70-100 views a day.

    How can I start to go about increasing that number?

    and on top of that, what are good ways to monetize the traffic I'm currently receiving..
    I'm thinking of throwing some CPA offers on there related to working out, but I don't
    know the agencies to go through for stuff like that related to fitness.

    any suggestions / ideas?

    A hot girl or some other gimic and a nice fitness niche ad or product and your set. Very easy to get traffic also if you submit videos and images to youtube and google.

    Use click bank. You can make good profits.

    Depends on the kind of fitness is it weight loss? Bodybuilding or general so a bit of both? First things first is set up a email optin at the top of your sidebar giving away a free product or discount code. (Hint discount code should be affil link) I wouldn't promote on clickbank, products are tacky. I run a blog more focussed on bodybuilding than weight loss and I use commission junction and make a decent sum. I still cater to weight loss keywords so on my weight loss pages I have a weight loss orientated opt in and ads showing in the sidebar. Also get in contact directly with advertisers you can get some nice display prices at around 10$CPM.
