    Hey!

    Well I have this video hosting site


    http://bit.ly/eM0ZU1


    and essentially I'm looking for some tips on how to monetize, it's only getting around 3k uv's a day right now, but it's fairly new. It's also making about 20$ a day off adsense / cpx so the profits fairly slim, but on the weekends I get huge bursts in traffic (last saturday I made 290$). I'm just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what I should do to better monetize it.

    Most of the monetizing happens on the pages leading up to the video

    So you can have a general idea of how I'm doing it now. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    i would search every similar site you're trying to compete with and see what ads they're using. then find out the ad network and copy what they're doing.

    I've already tried that a bit, with cpx interactive and adbrite (adbrite's crap) but other than that I don't have enough traffic to get into all the other networks.

    if you dont have enough traffic, try advertising at places like youtube and other video sites etc., you might get some traffic. :D

    in the description of the video, add an affiliate link, that is related to the video. This way you can make some sales. You can also try adding cpa offers. I recommend zip offers. I had on youtube at some time, around 40 videos, that made me in 5 days around 30k in visits. From that 30k visits, i had around 100 clicks, but no sale. I was promoting a clickbank offer. That is why i say, you should try a zip offer from a cpa company. I guess, video traffic ain't that willing to buy. :|

    All the best.
