TV/Movie Site Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'General Business' started by !Unreal, Nov 11, 2008.

  1. #1
    Well with the ammount of TV/Movie sites there are cropping up everywhere I thought this forum could do with a thread like this. Proxies and arcades have them so we should get in on the game. :p
    SEMrush

    So...

    • How do you promote your site?
    • Do you do movies or TV or both?
    • How to monetize your traffic?
    Lets get some conversation going.

    I run a growing forum with around 3300+ members which is all about movies and TV shows. I also have a blog which is focused on TV shows. Most of my traffic comes from submitting my stuff to websites like nabolister. I also get quite a bit of traffic from top sites.

    How about you?

    Cool thread. I run a bunch of TV Show and movie sites and will try to contribute my best. For now, I'll answer your questions. :p

    1. I am currently trying to get traffic by submitting some videos to YouTube, MegaVideo and some more video sharing websites. I am also giving Yahoo Answers a go in a few days, hopefully brings some traffic.
    2. Both, but mostly have TV Show sites.
    3. CPALead for the moment, but looking for more ways.

    I hope some experienced members in this field will share some tips.

    Yeah its a good move to have a thread for Movie site discussion.
    I promote my site using adword and stumble upon advertising
    I do both Tv series and movie
    I'm using Adbrite and zango to monetize it

    Looks like a good thread. Hopefully it can stay up. I would like to get in this business but would only like to do it for good quality movies and shows. Like HD I guess. Would that take up all my hosting space?

    No, you just put links or just put HTML code on your site. The videos will be hosted on video sharing web sites like MegaVideo etc. so its not going to cost you much bandwidth or disk space.

    Ive never used stumble or anything like that before. I might give it a go.

    I wouldnt host them. Then you could be sued. Host them on sites like youtube then embed them on your site.

    So how do you cope with the fact that sidereel has locked every single page with copyrighted content like US movies? Im just gonna stick with Google and Social bookmarking .

    Sidereel has locked every page
    Tvlinks db is the worst site that i have seen in my life
    tvduck cannot send huge visitors

    Really this business is difficult without sidereel :(
    And the main reason was CPAlead and Zango thing
    Seriously guys dont u think thats too much for our visitors
    I will never implement these two ... These will harnish vistor experience and will cause less repeated visitors
    Instead i recommend amazon widgets,some afflicates,popups(just one per session),cpm ads...
    Though one will earn less .. for long term earnings its useful

    I agree, Tvduck and tvlinksdb are not capable of sending you massive traffic like sidereel. But just because Sidereel is on hold, doesnt mean its the end. There are alot of other link sites out there, and sure, by themselves they may not generate large traffic numbers, but together they could come close? Link sites are only one of the many many ways to get traffic, just try thinking outside the box.

    Sidereel made this business fairly easy, now its gone it will seperate 'the men from the boys' so to speak, in terms of who can still make money. It might even improve the quality of tv sites out there, and reduce the number of 'crappy, make money quick, 5 minute made sites'

    As far as Cpalead and Zango goes - Zango I have never worked with and am in no rush too. Cpalead, i think is fantastic ! Yea, sure it might p**s off a few people but as long as I provide working links and make lots of money :D, I dont see a problem.

    Its one of the biggest movie/tv sites on the net. It 'did' allow members to easily add their own links, hence large easy traffic. But now they have locked the pages of their top 100 shows untill they decide the best way to combat links that do not comply with their T&C's

    Alluc?
    Tv Duck
    Tv Links Db

    I have tried a bunch of things on my sites which remain largely neglected to date, however there doesnt seem to be much appetite to buy these types of sites, wonder why ?

    A couple months ago I added paypop and use their popunders to suplement my dying Zango profits (link in sig, pays $1.80 per 1,000 page views).

    I tried CPA Lead but the income spiked for a few days then died out quickly.

    tvlinksdb is the worst site that i have seen ...
    I recommend not to use this coz it will send negligible traffic and it sucks :(
