    Hello,
    I've got numerous sites that were monetized with Amazon. Not going to use them there anymore.

    Any suggestions for monetizing them? Adsense is not an option. These sites are based around "home products" and "fashion" more or less.

    I know I can always throw up general CPA stuff or weight loss but looking for other ideas.

    Thanks for the help.

    You look at ClickBank yet? I have a site I'm aging for a future authority PBN that I'm using with them to pay for itself while it ages and it seems to be doing ok.

    Yeah I have. Not a big fan of them to be honest. But it can work in some capacity I'm sure. Thanks.

    These sites are a little "dark" let's say. I don't want to risk losing the account with them. Ever get a feeling something is gonna happen? I can feel the banhammer coming. Gonna shelve them all so I don't lose the money or the account. I have other plans for Amazon stuff.

    Would be happy to make 30-40% of what I'm making with Amazon to be honest. Just looking for some ideas if anyone has any. Much appreciated.

    No not that kind of dark. Along the lines of redirecting but a little different (among other stuff)...After the Christmas buying spree, I just have too much money on the table to chance it. Well it's too much to me anyways. I will likely flip the switch back come feb or march but I'd like to make sure I'm gonna get these payments if you know what I mean. I have other stuff running too so not the end of the world even if I make squat but I know I can make "something" with this traffic.

    I'll figure it out I'm sure...Just was wondering if anyone had some ideas to throw out. Thanks.

    Yeah I meant you could private label and open a home products shop on your site

    You could try Commission Junction, they have a lot of advertisers that offer fashion/home improvement items that you could promote instead of Amazon.

    You could also join ShareASale (CJ's competitor). They are very old and great too. Lots and lots of great, old paying companies here, especially in your category. Maybe take a look at them.

    With fashion there's a great opportunity to make money. Shopstyle has a whole site based on their affiliate bucks from selling high end designer items. The companies they are working with must have affiliate programs, so get in contact with them (Yoox, Luisaviaroma, etc.) and you can push luxe fashion items.

    For home improvement, one of Clickbank's best selling products is a DIY woodwork manual. It's fairly expensive. People buy it somehow. Try shifting that.
