    Hey BHW followers. I've read a lot of great guides on here that have lead me to a lot of great services and people. My goal is to make $100 a day off of my website. I'm wondering what focus I should take on my journey to this goal. I'll give you some insight to my website below and maybe you can let me know what you think.

    Niche: Gaming > Gamers Voice
    Traffic: 130k visitors / month
    Adverts: Adsense / CPM Star
    Direct Sales: Creating a Ebook for how gamers can make money from gaming > Selling mined data from the website to game companies as direct stats of what their gamers want from their games to improve and make more money as a company.
    CTR : 5/100 but we are reworking content in the site to be more sales driven in gamer tech, web selling, etc.

    We are fairly new as a site. I have 3 partners that are highly involved in the building of the site. We are looking to get potential funding from an investor that is interested in our concept but wants to see us making ~100.00 a day from advert / sales. If you have advice please let me know :)

    130k visitors a month? Affiliate income with Amazon, just sign up and put links on which whenever you get a sale you get from 4%-8% of the revenue.

    I would be very wary of your 'investor'.

    If he is waiting until you have proven your concept by making money, he is potentially hoping to buy a percentage of your future profits for far less than they are worth.

    Do you have an idea of how much he is going to invest and what share of the business he wants?

    If you have site that gets 130k a month you dont need any investors for sure.

    Try to promote some CPA offers and /or sell CB products so you can bypass creating ebook and still get 75% for some proven products which sells

    Have you tried organic, whitehat link exchanging? Try to reach out to other websites in your niche that have a similar, but non-identical theme- evaluate what you have to offer them, and initiate contact. Ask them to put your link on their webpage in exchange for something from you (the most obvious being you putting their link on your website).

    Exactly try promoting gaming offers using banner ads on your site...apply to networks that specialize in gaming......glispa.com, wolfstormmedia.com etc. your chances of getting approved are good since you seem to have good amount of visitors.

    so 130k monthly UNIQUES and trying to generate 3k a month in cpm.
    that is a 23$ ecpm... in the gaming niche. not my niche so i have no idea what kind of traffic source, geography your visits come from.

    Do you have any mechanism for members? like a newsletter or what not?

    Yes, I have a newsletter.

    The investor is actually a friend of mine that fell in love with the niche idea but he works for Microsoft / Boss Audio and said he would like to see his investment paid back. It's a non proprietary investment.. so once paid off he's done. He loves the brainstorming / puzzle aspect of the new site.

    I will work on link trades. I would love to sign up for Amazon sales but the state of Colorado doesn't allow it and I don't know if I use a different address if I would get caught.

    Selling banners would be a great idea.. we had our programmer offer to sell us his custom code and allow us to sell pre built websites to clans / teams for cheap.

    Thanks so much for the ideas! I hope more come !!

    100k views per day is the goal.
