Starting a social site, how to generate rev?

I am starting a social site for eco friendly people and it will have a store, I was wondering what are some others ways besides ad campaigns to generate revenue?

Like mentioned earlier, find products in your niche to promote on the site so that all your visitors will hopefully buy something from you.

Are you familiar with Clickbank?

Take a look in there marketplace for eco products to promote. http://www.clickbank.com/marketplace.htm

You can either search the clickbank database for products to promote or setup the HopAd builder code on your social site. It's just like adsense ads but you will only earn a commission if someone purchase's a product. Read about the HopAd builder program at this link. http://www.clickbank.com/help/affili...hopad-builder/

Have you thought about testing adense out on the site once it starts to get some traffic? Perhaps try out adsense as a first option for earning revenue but if you want money in your pocket faster and not having to wait to reach $100 to get a payout the following month they test out clickbank.

Another way to earn revenue is to sell banner ads on your site. Create another page on your social site with information for the visitor to read if they want to purchase advertising space. I use OIO publisher on my blog for banner ads, it's easy to manage any advertiser's who want to purchase space. It's one time payment to purchase this software with lifetime upgrades for free. http://www.oiopublisher.com/

If i can think of other ways i'll stop by this thread. It's midnight right now and my brain is thinking about sleep.

You could also add a Paypal donation button to your favorite eco charity and tell the members to help donate to their favorite causes. You could keep a small percentage for administrative fees. Its a win/win for everyone

I think you should first take care of the content, promotion and after you have enough traffic, start worrying about monetization

First things to remember, don't worry about money.. focus on quality content and site promotion.. then when site gets huge.. whatever ads you put will turn into money, don't just jump into conclusion to earn money initially focus on site quality and promotion.

You could always offer some sort of Premium content to your users and use an incentive company like CPAleads tools and offers to actually make the money. I do this myself and it runs perfectly.

If your content is good and you start generating lots of targeted traffic, you will be asked to offer advertising space. So, like others have said, don't worry too much about making revenue just yet.

Don't forget to create threads on webmaster forums advertising your advertising spots. The more you let the world know the more money you will make.

You should use affiliate marketing using banners or text ads. Don't use Adsense, if you don't have a lot of traffic you will not make any serious money.

If you eventually build a large user base with lots of traffic you may eventually want to look at selling your own advertising and sponsorships, but that would be down the track.
Best of luck.

niche traffic, so affiliate program must work.
