    Okay so I was lying in my bed brainstorming a few days ago. I was thinking about two things at the time. The first was about how I had just started playing with Uploading.com and how cool it was, and the second was about how some of my blogs (autoblogs or not) were barely making me any money. Now I'm not amazing at making blogs or sites, but my sites eacg pull in around 20 highly targeted viewers a day, even after not writing a piece of content for a few months. Then, a light bulb went off in my head. I thought to myself, why not replace all my advertisements with links to free ebooks that will solve these peoples problems. If they want to learn how to make money but have had bad experiences with clicking on those ads Google displays, how about you made all your links to FREE ebooks well displayed, easy to see, and the main attraction of your site. How about you have 4 seperate ebooks. How about you put preview thumbnails next to your links, each going through Linkbucks(also have the download links go through it) to ShareAPic.

    Now I'm going to test this method today, but do you realize that your conversion rate will be UNREAL! Probably somewhere in the range of 70-80% if you make the links really stand out.

    (Now if your adsense blocks are well clicked on, don't replace them, but add this new revenue generator as well)

    So step by step:

    1. Get rid of your most prominent advertisement spot(if it's not making you that much cash).
    2. If you got rid of it, create a box the same size or larger than the advertisement was in the same place, or if you kept the advertisement, put the box somewhere near it (BUT MAKE IT VISIBLE).
    3. Either create ebooks, or download them from torrent sites, if you don't care about your userbase then once they download the file your done with them.
    4. Put these extremely prominent links BOLDED, UNDERLINED, COLORED, whatever in the boxes next to preview thumbnails(more ways to make money?) that have like a picture of the cover, or one page screenshot(Linkbucks -->ShareAPic thumbnail) or something.
    5. Your done!

    Now think about it, imagine you have a site that gets say 10,000 visitors a day, but they're not targeted and adblind. What if you offered them a completely free eBook on how to make money, 100% free, just follow the link to download. I'd guess that if this traffic wasn't the wealthiest crowd, a ton of them would download it. That's almost Guaranteed Income of $60 - $130(if using linkbucks and shareapic) bucks a day from a site like an ImageHost.

    Hope you liked my method. First share here!

    This is a smart idea. I was only thinking to myself last night actually about creating some ebooks and processing payments myself through paypal. I get so tired of being screwed by affiliate programs (I have insider info on many and they shave like f*ckers).

    Haha. Yeah it's like if you're giving them something for free, then they're going to click and download the free ebook.

    BTW as an Update, I HAVE NOW TRIED THIS, IT WORKS!

    The OP is after my own heart, as I have been advocating the same thing. Instead of waiting for sales that may not come or may be shaved, why not be a content provider and traffic producer, and make money from your 'sponsors' (linkbucks, et al) for bringing visitors and clickers to your site? Put CPM affiliate ads on the site for an additional profit center. Connect one of the free ebooks to a CPA offer. Make money whether the visitor pays for anything or not! Ka-ching time!

    That is actually a good thing that you swap google ad with your own ad, especially if you are making autoblog, which make penies per click since google has some kind of logo to devalue the cpc on site that are not authoritative.

    With this method you still need to target the audience though. So put moey making ad only if your site is related to money making, and put casino ad if it is gamble related.

    Another way to monetize it is to offer the download from you own site, but only give them the download after the user submitted your cpa offer. This will make you more money than sharepic

    Exactly. A lot of this was actually intended for an Auto blog. Have like 3 links to Free products at the top targeted to the autoblog. Then when they're leaving have something Popup telling them to download yet something else that is *worth* $279.99, but can be theres absolutely free. And then on top of that, have a shitload of CPM and all that other jazz.

    Plus its good to have multiple links, because uploading.com pays for multiple downloads even if it's from the same ip.

    No I completely agree. I've now done this to all my sites (about 15 or so) and I'm now making almost 350% more per day. Remember, make the links really stick out. The pop up boxes, whatever. Make money off EVERY visitor. That's your goal.

    I have this method up on my iphone blog offerring 20,000 free ringtones. I had it behind a sharecash account. A day after I set it up, I went to another computer and tried to go through the download myself. Sharecash keeps stringing you through 3 or 4 stupid sign ups and surveys. It was annoying for me so I can only imaging what a customer might think.

    We need a download site that is one time enter email or phone or quick data and then right to the download. I haven't found it yet.

    TBH I don't see why you don't just do it yourself, sharecash are taking a cut of your profits, just cut them out of the equation and copy what they are doing.

    It take time, resource, and promotion to ran a site like sharecash. So it might be hard to compete with it head on.

    But you can create your own product and put your own ad, you keep 100% from the revenue.

    ~Thanked...

    Oh.. Just 1 question. I have a website based on tips and tricks for Windows Xp.. So do you have any clue of what kind of ebook to write about.. Since my site has most of the stuff that I would include in an ebook... Eh I hope its not bad to do this lol... and if its "top secret" but you are willing to share with me, you can PM me it lol

    Thanks

    Here's an idea. Look at the ads google is serving on your website. Check out what they are, and then offer the same thing absolutely free.

    Offer a free ebook for "10 tips not offered anywhere else, etc"

    Or my must have list of the top 5 programs, and links where to get them.

    etc. Do something that isn't available anywhere else. Make every person want to download it.

    GUYS SORRY IF I WASN'T CLEAR!

    WHAT YOU DO IS REPLACE OR IN ADDITION CREATE YOUR OWN BOX OF ADVERTISEMENTS, AND THEN IN THE BOX YOU PUT LIKE DOWNLOAD LINKS TO 4 FREE PRODUCTS WHICH ARE UPLOADED AT SOMEPLACE LIKE UPLOADING.COM (THAT'S WHAT I USE)

    Then make the links really visible so that almost every visitor wants to get the ebook, CAUSE IT'S FREE! That way you make money off almost every visitor, and with uploading you get paid for multiple downloads so a visitor that downloads 4 ebooks can make up for a visitor that doesn't download anything. Then have a preview next to each link and (Linkbucks/HyperlinkCash it-->Then ShareAPic/Whatever Pay Per Image service it).

    That way you make something like an average of 2 cents per visitor NO MATTER WHAT! That's a lot of freaking cash if you bring in lots of visitors.

    USES:
    1. AutoBlog that isn't getting much adsense cash but decent amount of visitors, free niche related ebook anyone?
    2. ImageHosts that are usually hard to monetize, lucrative ebook anyone?
    3. Any site that you want to make a little more income by offering an ebook or two.

    GUYS THIS IS JUST ANOTHER INCOME STREAM FOR SITES THAT ARE MAKING MONEY

    BUT FOR SITES THAT AREN'T MAKING SHIT THIS IS A *GUARANTEED* INCOME STREAM

    Sounds like it has some potential.

    Which of those pay-for-download sites has the highest payout?
