Ok, this isn't another one of the typical "How do I get started in affiliate marketing so i can quit my day job" type of posts.
Auto Website Forums - Google & Kontera Work
I run a small network of automotive websites and one of them will probably get millions of total visitors for this year. I'm already making a decent amount with Google/Kontera and I am very happy with that. HOWEVER, I can't seem to figure this whole affiliate thing out.
Do Affiliate Deals not Work on Forums?
Is it just not possible to make money doing affilate marketing on a forum? Do I have to spin off a landing page site just for affiliate stuff? Every time I try to do ads, sponsored forum links, sidebar images, in-line forum posts to an affiliate deal ... I end up maybe making $100/month.
I'd need to make at least $1,500/month (and with 300k monthly uniques I should hope I could do that) without taking away from the other revenue streams.
Ideas? Thoughts? want to just mock me, that's fine too.
