    Hello Guys,

    Good evening!

    I am tryna monetize a social networking site that is dedicated for graphic artists in it. It receives 100 to 300 sessions per month and has a low bounce rate of 26%. Currently, we have ads from Adsense in it but it does not make enough money to cover the website maintenance (hosting).

    Can you share some ideas how we can monetize it other than Adsense?

    Thank you!

    Try CPA, PPI, or Affiliate program.

    It probably doesn't even have enough traffic to monetize. Try increasing traffic then seeing how your Adsense does.

    Thanks! Let me correct: we receive 300-100 sessions per day, yet we only have 0.03 - 0.07 per day earnings.

    If we are going for CPA, how do we do it? I mean, we have profile pages, newsfeed and everything. I just do not see how we will include the CPA in it.

    Thanks!

    If you're going to promote CPA/affiliate offers, you'll want to look for stuff that might particularly appeal to your user base. A heatmap can show you what kind of activity your users are engaging in on your site, so you might even be able to tweak your existing ad placements for revenue growth, but your traffic is simply to low - so you may wish to use existing social networks like facebook groups to increase your existing membership. You really can't tell much about your ads with these user levels. I get that you may think it is a lot - but it isn't. I wonder how many winning campaigns I would have given up on if I hadn't thrown enough traffic prior to attempting to measure success.

    Good luck with this site. I think you can make good things happen with it.
