    Too niched!

    Hi everyone,
    My siteīs content is so specific that I canīt sell anything on it (believe me I tried!).
    I get about 1000 uniques a day, and most visitors keep coming back.
    What I was thinking about is having a voluntary membership fee of $5, or whatever ammount people want to contribute.
    Do you think this can work? Suggestions?
    I have a goal of getting $50 a month.

    What have you tried in terms of advertising and affiliates?

    You're not exactly giving us much information. You say your site is a niche site yet you make no mention of what it is about. How can I know whether or not people will be willing to donate $5 for it?

    What else have you tried other than CJ? What are your results with banner networks (fastclick, valueclick, burst, advertising.com)?

    How many impressions per day are you getting?

    Is the content on your website unique and of high quality? Is it information that is of demand?

    As Tom mentioned, please give us more information about your website and demographics. If your website is that targeted, you should be able to sell something. Maybe you're running the wrong CJ programs?

    Try setting up a poll on your website and ask for yourself, would they be willing to pay a $5 membership fee for access to your website? If everybody says no, you'll need to make some modifications. Entice them. Make them want to join.
