    I have a series of 46 videos as my main product.
    The website is done with an IContact auto-responder series.
    Membership site and payment system through Paypal.
    I also setup a Facebook page for the site.
    I also tried to monetize it with Amazon and Adsense ads.

    I did some back-linking with a blog commenter and I submitted the site to link directories.

    My question to you is:
    What is the next step for this website to get it profitable?

    masterfacebookmarketing.org

    What do I need to change on this website to get it to perform?
    What do I need to do exactly to get more traffic to the site?

    Your honest no BS comments and suggestions detailing what needs to be done would be highly appreciated.

    Best wishes
    Chris

    (I'm open to have a look at JV/partnership options)

    That's good site. I have checked your site, I have found basic information like Meta title is good, Meta description is good but I have not found Meta keyword that's very important for search engine so you should be add Meta keyword.

    Some advice for you, you should be change background for site, use same size front size, and display all information users friendly that's very important for site.

    For more traffic:-
    Use unique content with keyword
    Keyword optimization
    Promotion with high PR and good site
    Comment with related topic using anchor text
    Focus for each keyword one by one

    Great advice on getting traffic. Once you get traffic -
    Make sure you are marketing the series through your autoresponders in a nice 3- or 4-email campaign. Start by building up the interest, then tell them the price is something outrageously low. Give your email list a special link that's lower than the price on the site. Make sure that you have multiple products to sell your list. Easy app-builders, ie something like Social App Creator that helps them build apps as well. Anything you can upsell based on the content of your videos.

    And anything you can downsell if they decide they don't want to pay $97 for your videos. Maybe just sell them the ebook for $5. Make sure to give them plenty of bonuses, free videos, etc in the email (looks like you already do this).


    As far as changes to the site, it's pretty busy. There are a lot of links and a lot of information to distract your customer from giving up their email or clicking the button that matters. I'd take down the wordpress meta information, the comment portion, and the amazon book widget on the side. Maybe even remove the widgets and just use the header links to give out the free info. If your main product and goal is to get emails, focus on that. If you are selling videos, your free content should be short videos, not short articles - give the visitor a sense of what you're going to sell them.

    Thanks MarkHenry121 for the reply. You were correct, the Meta Keywords were not showing up. I had a SEO plugin that was suppose to take care of it but it did not function correctly. I replaced it with the WP SEO plugin from Yoast. This works perfectly it even tells me how to write my posts for best SEO results. I did change and update some of the pages before the Google Penguin update and found that after Penguin my site ranked higher. I then continued changing the remaining pages and have even seen them now ranking in Google. Thus the result with Yoast my site ranked better after the Penguin update.

    Sorry I'm lost here I don't understand what you mean, can you please explainthis comment.

    How do you promote your sites to high PR sites?
    Do you do it manually or do you use a program?
    How do you find these high PR sites?
    Must these sites be topic related?

    Again thank you for your comments and suggestions it is highly appreciated.

    Good job at not making it look really spammy. I hate when I see similar sites that just look like straight up spam.
