    Hey guys, been lurking for a few days reading various journeys and methods. I've had an idea for a website, basically focusing around niche specific downloads. So far the only ways I can think of that this could make me money is by putting the downloads through an adfly link, or just hosting ads on the site.
    Just after suggestions from those experienced in IM as to how else this can generate profit?

    thanks!

    Ps. Please forgive any mistakes (section, dumb questions, etc... Extreme noob.)

    What kind of content you are offering to download? Perhaps a pay per download campaign? Content locking some of them? Popups for something extra .. there are so many ways to monetize a website .. you may want to try a few and settle.

    Basically the idea of the website is to lost a bunch of currently compatible mods for a game, talk a bit about the mod, and have a download link to the mod. I did consider pay per download but I don't know much about it. Am I able to upload my own files (the mods) and get paid per download (other than a URL shortener?)

    You can put a locker on the files, and each time someone clicks the download link, they fill out a survey to unlock, and you get paid. If you need more info i can PM you..

    Making a wares site might be a better idea, go for less popular files so you can acquire some long tail indexes across some search engines and start linking download requests at some social media sites or YouTube / DailyMotion.

    You can always use the search feature and include what you're looking for.

    Many network will allow you to upload your own file to combine with their installer and customize it to some extent. But perhaps content locking would be a smart choice for your case. If the gamer really want the mods (most of them do) they will do the survey and you will get more than ppd.

    forget about adfly and before profit you have to generate content. Make promotions on social networks. Or try with Affiliate programs.

    You should go after content locking. It's not so hard to set up and you have networks like cpagrip or cpalead that have many simple options to achieve that.
