How to make money from a Press Release website?

Hi guys,
I have a Press release website where users can post their press release free of cost and I want making money from the website.
The site is 3 years old with PR2 and having more than 1000 Press Release with around 1K users.
Let me know your ideas.
Thanks

Have you thought about using adsense on the press release website?

How about add a premium account on there with more options for people to use when submitting a press release.

Hi,
Thanks for your answer once again.
Yes, I am already using Google Adsense on the website but didn't get enough of it, but i can think about the premium press release service like other websites.

Definitely add a premium press release service so you can make more money without the need of a third party ad network. Also, consider an affiliate network that would appeal to the majority of the posters on your site. Perhaps a business service of some sort, something that will help them improve business or website earnings.

Adding onto the premium press release idea, if you add several different levels of it ($10, 20, 40) etc. I think it would give you a competitive advantage over more expensive press release sites.

Adding a premium subscription package to your website is a decent idea, you can make the offer very exciting like offering free email accounts to the premium users, offer advertising spots to them in a newsletter program, etc. Offering a personal profile to the users can also help sell such accounts better, the resources will contain links pointing to the websites of the authors, along with their photos and a description of their businesses. These will help advertising the press release posters even better too.

Hi,
Yes, premium press release is a good idea. Just look at the website:
http://freepressindex.com/ and http://www.free-press-release-center.info/. Keeping the minimum level of premium subscription low is very important. For freepressindex.com, they charge a minimum one time subscription of $15, and $1 will be charged for each press release. For free-press-release-center.info, the premium subscription costs $2.95. There are not many PR sites with such low subscription fee, and it is going to become popular. We regularly post premium subs posts on those sites.

Once the site is stabilized, you can think of increasing the subscription rate, depending on the customer satisfaction level. At the minimum, a PR site should provide one deep link to the new article source when charging a premium.

my 2 cents.

How about charging a small fee from publishers to publicize their post for a press release.

You cant properly monetize site if you have no traffic to it.
Whats your stats?
Do you get organic traffic? Anything from Google?
Charging fee for publishing will kill your site as there are hundreds free ones.

The only sensible options seems to be a premium account. Perhaps things like, more social media exposure (auto post for them).

Another way you could build traction is to offer an improved release service and make them pay with a tweet. No money, but that will start to build your advertising, which will build your traffic and give you more options later.

Getting around 200 hits per day.
Not too much from Google.
Let me know the best way

Premium package, submit or account is the way to go. For example, you can add additional benefits or options for them.
