    I've been doing SEO for a while now and want to have more income streams. Can you guys suggest something else? I'm doing a bit of Pinterest, but nothing too serious right now so I'm looking to expand my business with some of the free time I got.

    Social media and SEO are the two "organic" ways to get traffic.

    Your other options are paid traffic and offline advertising. Paid traffic = buy ads on adwords or FB.

    Offline = spread flyers around and tell people in real world places to access your site.

    That's the meat 'n potatoes of getting traffic to your site. Other than that you gotta be creative.

    I would suggest expanding on Pinterest if you already have experience there. If your niche fits it can be a great traffic source. Cooking, sports and all that woman stuff together with well designed recipes or infographics works really well on Pinterest. Next to this you might give Instagram a try, great social network for traffic generation too and there a ton of guides around here if you want to get started. If you don't like Social Media try Paid Advertising. There's a lot to learn like optimizing ads, retargeting and other stuff. Experience there definitely won't harm you.

    For the past 16 years, I have been monetizing 3rd party data using PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers.

    3rd party data is data that the users have provided permission to receive messages from third parties and is 100% can-spam compliant. You can get targeted data that the users have requested info about or have shown an interest regarding a specific vertical.

    You can purchase the data or you can try and set up rev-share deals. Rev-share is simply data that you get for $0 upfront cost and split the revenue generated from sending it, with the data providers.

    The reason I promote PPL offers is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher than for offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them. This is what has overall worked the best for me and they tend to have the greatest amount of mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience). So the potential to generate high volume exists and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    Some verticals that I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, debt, credit, mortgage, loans, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    You start out by acquiring 3rd party data for a specific vertical and send a relevant offer. So if you're getting life insurance data, then you send a life insurance offer. If you're getting data for education then you send an education offer. etc, etc... Then later, you will start cross promoting other offers on the back-end to further monetize the data.

    So your basically monetizing the data using PPL offers because they offer the path of least resistance to generating conversions and converting the data into cash producing assets.

    I use ESPs for sending fresh / targeted data because most provide shared IPs and you can piggyback off the good IP reputation that has been created by the other users and get decent deliverability.

    For aged data, I will send using my own servers / IPs. However, when you get your own IPs they will at best have neutral IP reputation and will not likely deliver well to all domains. So I domain target the data based on what domains I will likely get the best deliverability with, using the IPs I have.

    While it may sound simplistic, there is far more that goes into it. Done right, it can be extremely profitable. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, for the most part, does 6-7 figures. While that may sound like a huger range, much comes down to one's ability to scale and to effectively build/manage the infrastructure need to scale.

    Something to think about.

    Are you fucking serious? If you try to farm posts at least write something by yourself. Reported for spamming.

    He wasn't referring to me (if you think that). We're talking about @SunSearcher who just put 2 previously posted sentences together as his reply to this thread.

    Yes but only when I have spare time.
    Not enough capital to make a living out of it.

    Yes, CPA offers. Those are the type of PPL offers that have worked well using 3rd party data (email) for. Both front-end offers and back-end offers.

    I will get for example auto insurance data and send an auto insurance offer to the users. I send them directly to the offer landing page. Then cross promote other offers on the back-end.

    Thanks for the tips! I guess I'll go more into Pinterest and try to find something else.
