    I saw a gap in the market about a year ago and created
    Code:
    face-gamers.com
    I've nurtured it as a passion, but it is really starting to grow and I think it is time I thought about putting together a strategy to make money from it.

    I've tried several offers from aff networks but they don't work. I need something more tangible to sell, something that will work.

    I've worked pretty hard on this website. The traffic is around 400 visitors per day.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I could really use an expert hand at this one.

    - Try monetizing with Facebook App installs from CPA networks, convert2media has some.

    - Get the link building serious: article submissions, high pr backlinks, web 2.0 blogs <- profiles/comments <- social bookmarking

    The usual stuff!

    400 visitors a day is not that much in that niche,
    maybe also try to get viral -> Facebook Marketing ( buy US fans, buy-get-code viral scripts)

    I run a competition to win a facebook game gift card voucher which gets decent feedback. Maybe I could use one of these content lockers to make them fill out a survey to enter into the competition.

    Can anyone think of a better idea?

    I'm going to up the backlink building for the sure for sure. I'm adding a forum too. I've stayed away from buying fans because I can't see how te fans would be legitimate people. They are likely just created accounts right?

    Naaah mate with the last part you are wrong ;)

    The fake accounts are just used to post on the wall,
    so ACTUALL people like your stuff.

    But most of the time the fans you get are only COUNTRY-targeted,
    still very useful if used right!

    its a great niche. And with those content lockers you are really shooting yourself in a leg.

    There are many ways to monetize it, I have few good ideas. Hit me up via PM or skype , and im happy to help out..

    Get a viral fb app script (not bh ones, apps like social interview, etc.), use lightbox popup with link to app authentication page and grab app installs. Since people are looking for facebook games they will allow anything. So out of 400, even if 200 people allow then your app can have a pretty good growth rate and since people will be using this app they will eventually allow your app to post on their friend's wall (you can skip user's permission in the beginning. just make it natural) the app will get viral and can be good in a long term. You can monetize the app with some ad networks that fb approves or even cloaked cpa offer will do. Just add some twist to this and you are good to go. Your investment would be to get and setup the app if you don't know how to.
