    Hey all,

    My name's Ben. I am the system admin and content manager for this blog called the Bachelor Life Survival Guide ---> I've recently gotten a wind of inspiration to begin working with this blog again and I am really excited to get going. Just a few quick questions:

    Right now, the site is getting about 1,000 views a month, and about 400-600 Unique Visitors a day. I want to start making some money off of this blog. There's also an extremely awesome Twitter account associated with it that have over 10,000 followers (NOT BOTS!). I was wondering if anyone knew some good ways for my blog in particular to get some more traffic and money.

    Thanks everyone!
    Ben

    Thanks for the advice everyone!

    I actually outsourced the SEO to another company, and also the Social Media. I've been trying to make 2-3 posts per week so Google keeps finding fresh new content. I also write all the content myself because I feel it's important to have extremely high quality material to visitors.

    I actually got BANNED from Adsense a while ago because I did something stupid... I have Amazon Affiliates on there too. Are there any other ways to make money from the blog? I'm always open to more ideas!

    10,000 monthly views you mean?

    Well, the easiest and laziest way I think is to run adsense ads but the smartest is to capture leads (email marketing) and market them relevant quality products

    Update: ah, since you said you are banned from adsense then all the more so - use email marketing.

    E-mail marketing with an Aweber/Chimpmail/Reachmail account, right? I should really jump on the ball with this stuff, hahaha. My sidebar is all screwed up because my designer MIA... Pretty irritating, but I'll throw an aweber sign up slot there.
