    Hi all,

    I've not been here too long but already got inspired by all of your stories. So I decided to share mine.

    Project 1

    Few years I set up a site as a hobby and initially used it to get few clients, but for the last few years, it has been sat doing nothing.

    I rebuilt it last month as it has decent traffic (70k per month) in a very good niche with PA 30 and DA 27, BUT I haven't monetized it all. Things I'm planning to do over the next month.

    1) I need to learn more about what are the best and least spammy ways I can add ads to the site. Any advice would be much appreciated.
    2) Publish more content weekly.
    3) Build mailing list (currently around 3k)
    4) Buy Facebook likes and then keep growing it organically
    5) Buy some followers for IG account and continue growing it
    6) Drive traffic through social accounts to the site

    Project 2
    Lately, I noticed there had been a lot of demand for influencer engagement and campaign management. Going to give it a go and try to build a strong network of influencers in 3/4 niches so we can deliver awesome creative campaigns for brands together.

    I will keep you all updated every week or so with my progress and earnings.

    Good luck! In terms of ads I would probably try for Adsense. Additionally if an affiliate program like Amazon would work I would be sure to get that approval. If Amazon doesn't work or won't approve there is viglinks which I used when scaling up one of my original websites.

    A lot of those decision are so niche and audience dependant but it sounds like you have a decent amount of traffic so I hope you are able to capitalize on that!

    Thanks for your advice, really appreciate it! I'm looking into Adsense at the moment and hoping to try it out soon. I used to own a shop on Amazon and have a sick account on there (not sure if it makes a difference) but may give it a try as well although not sure it's that relevant to my niche. Will check out viglinks as well, never heard of it before :)
