I could do with some help/suggestions on this (and I think this thread could be very useful for people in a similar boat to me, looking to get started with IM), I'm a website designer looking to move into IM full time (to avoid the need for sourcing new clients ad infinitum) and I have this 12v Solar Panels site that just ticks over, makes next to no money and causes me a bunch of hassle but is established, has some good rankings and could be improved I think.
It gets 500-600 uniques per month for the phrases "12v solar panels" (2nd on Google) and the singular of that, and a bunch of 'lesser' rankings, all achieved with little actual work on my part (might as well be honest) so the numbers are low but there is targeted traffic. Stock is drop shipped so profit margins are slim and I don't see the point of continuing the current model.
So... I'd like to monetise it but don't know where to start, Adsense? New product line? Turn it into an information site? What things spring into the minds of you out of the box ideas guys?
I'd like to use this site (if possible) as a stepping stone to/bit of practice in monetising sites, any suggestions are of course appreciated!
