    Hey guys,

    Just want some input about what I should do with a newly acquired fanpage with 500k fans.... Yes, I have looked around the forum for ideas but I'd like your input too. I made $300 in one week once from Adsense with a 40,000 person fanpage, so I'm thinking about doing the same thing, and hopefully it will work. Or would you use it to grow other pages first before rights got taken away?

    To be honest, I dont want to use CPA programs. Thanks for your input!

    Educate people on something that's hot/informative and make them pay for the content. People are usually willing to pay for something they know they can get something out of.

    Well, I bought it from someone so I could use Adsense to make money.... just wanted to see if there were any other ideas out there... I guess I'll stick with that idea then.

    If you do the same, then on average:

    If a 40,000 fan page made you $300 in a week, that means if you have a fanpage with 500,000 fans, then you should make over 12 times as much

    40,000 x 12.5 = 500,000
    $300 x 12.5 = $3750

    You would earn more in that week than what you would sell your page for ;)

    Although it's entirely legal, I don't like to use it cuz then people get charged on their cell phones, right?

    No, thats one of the options. The majority of the time its filling in surveys for free. Mobile ones get you more money though - Content blockers are the best way, rather than selected surveys in my opinion (Selected ones you can chose specific ones but dont block content, so it can be harder to get someone to do it, but on the other hand some surveys you select can be related to your niche and people may do them to find their IQ for example [requires phone though sometimes] where as the content blocker is random surveys - but are good to get people to do them)

    Content blocking is quite old though now and alot of time people have been asked to fill in surveys before and no longer want to do it. Even if your page is legit and they get what you tell them they can have by filling in the survey, other pages just let them fill in the survey and receive no content.

    Sorry for babbling :p

    EDIT: If they did do one that charges their phone, it does notify them first anyway. Its not like they don't realize it until they see they have less credit / a bigger bill, although alot of the time the print is in small writing :)
