What would be the best way to monetize a "funny" website?

    Something that just has a lot of funny pictures on it, it would be geared mostly towards men but there would be women who would visit it as well. Definitely a younger crowd, but fairly tech savvy, I wouldn't think ringtones or things like that would work too well.

    Maybe a muscle building CPA? There isn't much content on the site so I don't think Adsense would pick up really relevant ads.

    The site is getting a decent amount of traffic, and I'm going to be adding new features within a week, any help with monetization would be appreciated.

    For AdSense you need to add little description of the picture, and CPA offers would be best with AdSense...

    Since they are somewhat savvy visitors you could try promoting iPhone apps. With iTunes you can deep link to specific products, even a free one, then earn on other things they buy from there iirc.

    Users are coming there for fun, not to think. They just want to laugh.

    So try some fun-type offers, e.g. This vs That (Facebook vs Twitter).

    You got the gist of it.

    Very interesting idea.

    I think theres an offer I found on a CPA with a survey of some famous star today. Its fun to do the survey then might as well find it. I forgot the network who offered it though.

    If you want to monetize a "funny" site, then you should look at places like Failbook, ICanhazcheezeburger (they're all owned by the same guys) the best way is merchandise.

    You can also build a decent email list, just get people to subscribe for daily updates, as people will (don't be aggressive, just put it in the sidebar) then with that list, email them when you have a new tshirt design.

    Tshirts can be funny pictures with captions, or whatever you're using. If you're just posting jokes you can just use the punchline in a cool font on a tshirt and people will buy it. Fuck literally all of my Tshirts are offensive or funny.

    I don't think that's a bad at all, unfortunately, the reason those larger sites can do that is because they have the resources to order those shirts in bulk, then sit on them until they sell. Using CafePress or something similar really eats into the profit margin.

    join unrulymedia and place funny videos on it. You will get paid per click basis.

    Use adsense. You can also run other cpm banner ads along with adsense.
