    Hello guys, first of all i would like to share my short story which started only thanks to BHW and its
    members.
    5 months ago i had no idea about IM . Although i am still a noob the fact that i am able to double what
    i make from IM every month with the knowledge i apply from BHW makes me hope for the future.
    For most of you, what i make is nothing, but i like to think positive and focus on progress. So the first month
    i made nothing, the second one maybe 0,20 euro per day, the third 0,40 per day, 4rth 0,90/day, and this month
    its arround 1,8 euro per day. I know it will be hard to continue this tempo as i climb up, but i am 100% focused
    to do my best.
    Because i am noob, i consider this a success story, and i must tell all BHW members that share their
    information with us noobs a big THANK YOU!

    And here comes my question.
    I have managed to rank #1 my site, for a somehow competitive keyword in my country and generally, which is
    dog training. The income from adsense is really low for this, and i am trying to find a way to monetize this.
    Can you please give me your ideas, also i was thinking to either give advertizing space for a dog trainer, or even
    better cooperate with a dog trainer as an affiliate and take a percentage from every sell he makes through my site,
    but how to do this...???
    The site has only 1000 page views per day but the traffic is very targeted and i m trying to take advantage of it.

    I would really appreciate your ideas, would be a great help for me to hear ALL your ideas.
    Thank you again for all your help !:ranger:

    You should have been ready for the moment before you got to rank for your keyword. Try to sell training books and services from amazon or other local market website.

    I am not a pro like some of the people on here, however my advice to you would be to try and capture as many email addresses as possible then your monitization options will increase significantly. Lets say you were getting 20-30 email addresses a day you can have 10,000 people to email offers to thereafter. You can then send your list offers relating to all things 'dog' instead of just training. You can sell the opportunity to market dog training services to your list without giving the entire list to the third party.

    Just a thought.

    You should've done some research before going for a keyword. Some keywords don't convert that well with Adsense but they do with affiliate products while some don't convert at all. But what I can tell from experience is that dog training keywords convert very well with affiliate products but I have no idea about your country. Still you can try going to clickbank and see if there's some related products available in your language. If not then I guess you'll have to promote your own ebook.

    thank you for your ideas, rep to all of you. please keep them coming!
    You are right, i should have been ready from the start, but this was the first site i build, testing the waters with IM, to be really honest i did not expect it to rank No #1 for such a competative keyword even for my country.
    but thanks to BHW and some hard work its there! :)
    I really like all the ideas, i would love some more ideas about how to cooperate with a dog trainer, how to be able to monitor how many customers i sent him.. i was thinking something like a special discount coupon that would be traceable or something like that... but how...?
