Martial Arts Monetization And Adsense Alternatives (Updated For 2021!)

Before getting into it, check our Martial Arts Marketing Foundations Guide which goes through in-depth all of the marketing platforms and strategies available to you to grow your business.

 

Martial Arts Marketing: Why Even Monetize?

 

Let’s start with the big question here: why even monetize your site in the first place? I mean you run a Martial Arts Gym, that attracts paying clients who pay to come to your classes right, so why monetize further? 

 

It’s an excellent question, and one you’ll need to spend some time thinking about to decide where you fall in this spectrum. Personally, we’re big believers that business is no longer linear. And by that we mean that a traditional business would typically trade on one thing: and in the martial arts world that would be students paying for classes.

 

You offer classes, students pay for said classes, deal done. 

 

But this traditional business model is dead. We live in an advanced 21st century technological society. Why do we feel the need to be shackled to traditional business models?

 

But first, we need to answer an important question: is this all about greed? The short answer is no, the longer answer is it depends on what you’re trying to achieve. 

 

If you just want to make more money to stuff your own pockets, then maybe it’s about greed. Or maybe, by attracting alternative sources of revenue, you’re able to subsidise the cost of your classes, making it more affordable for low-income families, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford your classes, can suddenly start coming. See how this works?

 

Alternative revenue streams are also about giving you the peace of mind, knowing that if one revenue stream slows down or dries up (ie: a pandemic hits), that you have alternative sources of revenue to keep you afloat. 

 

So should you find alternative sources of revenue? Absolutely, we recommend it. And in this guide we’re going to give you a thorough, comprehensive and step-by-step guide on all the options that are available to you, and exactly how to get them setup. So let’s jump into it. 

 

Martial Arts Marketing: Ways You Can Monetize

 

So upfront, a disclaimer: we are internet marketers, and we focus primarily on digital solutions. With that said there are obviously many non-digital solutions you could pursue, such as local sponsorships (perhaps in exchange for getting their logos on your gi), or fundraisers, or bake sales or whatever. 

 

The focus of this article will be digital methods you can use to monetize, which are automatic, and happen on auto-pilot behind the scenes. 

 

So what ways are there to monetize? First of all, let’s start with the platforms. If you run a successful YouTube channel that has at least a few thousand subscribers and thousands of views each month, then you can definitely monetize your channel. 

 

The next platform would be through your website or blog, using ad serving networks. The big kahuna, the 800 pound gorilla in the room is Google Adsense. 

 

The third platform would be to sell sponsorships through your email newsletter. Let’s say for example you have 5000 active users on your email list, you could start approaching local businesses and telling them ‘hey, we’ve got an active email list of 5000 users who live locally in this area – would you be interested in sponsoring our newsletter in exchange for including your logo, a blurb, and a link back to your site?’

 

If the price is right, the local business will appreciate the opportunity for additional exposure. Also, if you get great open rates, tell them how many people actually open your emails per week/month.

 

Google Adsense is the platform that powers much of the web’s digital currency, at least in terms compensating content creators for their content creations. We’ve got a whole separate blog here on getting setup and running with Google Adsense

 

Does Google Adsense Pay Enough?

 

Before jumping into the alternatives to Google Adsense, we do want to address one important question first though: Does Google Adsense Pay Enough?

 

There are many people who believe that Google Adsense, is a rip off and doesn’t properly compensate content creators – let’s have a listen:

 

In this video by Jimmy Tries World he dives into the backend of his YouTube ad account to reveal how much $$$ YouTubers make:

 

 

Check out this video by Shelby Church breaking down her different YouTube videos and showing you behind the scenes how much each one actually made (hint: it has very little to do with view counts)

 

 

Many content creators feel they’re being cheated by YouTube and not being properly compensated for their hard work, and I’m sure that for the amount of work and effort they put into it, it sure feels that way. 

 

But as an advertiser, I have a unique perspective here. See most YouTubers just put up a video, get a bunch and views, and then throw up their hands and say ‘boo! I only got like $20, what a rip off!”.

 

But as an advertiser, I know more about what is going on behind the scenes. See when I buy ads on YouTube, the amount of money I pay for an ad varies based on the location of the user (USA = expensive ads, India = cheap ads), the age of the user (kids = cheap ads, grown ass adults = expensive ads). 

 

Also whether the user is in-market. Which is a fancy way of saying that if Google has identified they’re ready to buy expensive IT software, advertisers who sell expensive IT software will spend more money to get in front of them. 

 

As an advertiser it is extremely easy to burn a hole through your wallet, so that money is obviously going somewhere (now I do appreciate that YouTube does take a 45% cut). 

 

The other factor here is whether your channel has a specific and clear topic and niche. For example, if as an advertiser I wanted to sell my expensive IT software, I might advertise my products on a techy channel. In fact, I can specify the exact channels that I want to advertise on 

 

So ask yourself, does your channel attract a large number of older, americans, who are in-market to buy expensive IT equipment? No? Then you might be out of luck. 

 

Obviously the IT equipment was just an example for some funsies, your channel will be focused on Martial Arts. 

 

One more point here, just because most people online are…not thinking straight (I try to be polite), is that many YouTubers feel that increase competition will drive down their earnings. 

 

And while increased competition might drive down their viewer count, as an advertiser, if ad costs drop because there’s more inventory (ad units being sold, to be technical), then we get excited and start spending more money. And as we spend more money, guess what? Your revenue starts going up to. 

 

That’s actually the beauty of the system. It’s free-market system, that is self regulating. Let’s take the opposite example. Let’s say some big brands start dropping huge amounts of money into the YouTube platform, and it starts making it too expensive for little guys like us to keep advertising. 

 

Great, it means that new content creators will be incentivized to create more content, and with more content, ad costs go down again. That is, as long as people keep watching. 

 

But I digress!

 

Martial Arts Marketing: How To Monetize?

 

So now that you know you’ll be monetizing either your YouTube Channel, your website, or your newsletter (or all 3!), how do you go about actually monetizing?

 

For YouTube it’s pretty straightforward as there’s really only one option: Google Adsense. YouTube being a Google product, it’s no surprise that it’s all linked directly through Adsense. The good news is that it makes it simple and straightforward, the bad news, is that it means you have no other alternatives and options. 

 

This video by Think Media details exactly how to get your YouTube channel setup and monetized – as well as how to collect money and pay your taxes (yay taxes!!):

 

 

For monetizing your blog, the standard would be to setup Google Adsense (we’ll be covering alternatives below).

 

This video by Darrell Wilson details exactly how to get your Google Adsense account setup:

 

 

Monetizing your newsletter may be the most complicated of the three, likely because you’ll actually need to go out and talk to local business owners, and negotiate on a good rate. 

 

However, for those who do want to automate the process, there are platforms available to find newsletter sponsors. 

 

This video by DavDiProssimo outlines 10 alternative platforms to monetize your newsletter:

 

 

For some contrast, this video by the Nathan Barry Show takes you through some of the darkside of paid newsletters:

 

 

Martial Arts Marketing: Alternatives To Adsense

 

Now let’s get into the meat of why we’re all here – for those who don’t want to do Adsense (or maybe are fed up with Adsense) what alternatives are there how there to get monetizing your site?

 

  1. Amazon Associates Program

 

The amazon associates program lands in at one of the largest competitors to Google Adsense. These two behemoths are definitely at each others throats, trying to attract you as an advertiser, and purchases for their products. 

 

In this last year, Google revamped its Shopping Network, specifically as an attempt to get back at Amazon, that has become the world’s dominant e-commerce platform. 

 

One key difference between Amazon Associates Program and Google Adsense is how you get paid. Google Adsense will give you revenue whenever there is a click on the ad, whether or not a purchase is made. By contrast, with Amazon, you become more of a sales associate, and you earn a commission whenever a sale is made. 

 

As a partner, you’ll earn a 10% commission when the sale is made. Which on a $10 book, maybe isn’t that exciting, but let’s say you helped sell a $2000 camera, now that $200 is some serious money. Keep things in perspective. 

 

Also, with the Amazon Associates Program, you can choose the ads you want displayed on your site and the specific products you want to promote, to ensure they are in alignment with your brand. 

 

For example, if you’re a Martial Arts Gym, then having affiliate links for gi’s and sparring equipment, could be right up your alley (and potentially saves you from having to stock them). 

 

And best to keep in mind that Amazon has an unparalleled reputation and trust in the e-commerce space, and your users will more likely make a purchase through Amazon than competitors.

 

  1. Adversal

 

Adversal is a simple, self-serving at network that you can get up and running in minutes. However, before getting too excited, it is worth nothing that you need at least 50,000 monthly pageviews to apply. Also, you do need to own your own domain name (which you should anyway).

 

This can impose a slight barrier to entry, but shouldn’t stop you from pursuing the option. 

 

The platform is intuitive, making it real simple for you to adjust, start, or stop, your campaigns. Adversal also allows you to add video, or run native ads, giving you plenty of options and flexibility. 

 

 

Taboola is easily one of the main alternatives to Google Adsense. It is quick and easy to get setup and running. One drawback however is a need to achieve 500,000 page views, which can seem quite daunting to many small business owners and website owners, who’ve just launched a new site, and are struggling to get their first visitors to the site. Keep going, you will get there. 

 

  1. Media.net

 

Media.net specializes in context native ads, and has become a major thorn in the side of Google Adsense. One big benefit of Media.net is the higher RPMs (revenue per thousand impressions), compared to Google Adsense, making it more appealing to publishers. 

 

Media.net uses the keywords from your site to contextualize its ads, and give greater levels of relevance. By displaying more relevant ads, Media.net is able to attract more advertisers, and with more advertisers means more revenue to go around. 

 

Media.net is also connected through the Bing and Yahoo! Search engines. 

 

 

Now the big downside of PopAds is they’re done using popup advertising, which we believe leads to a poor user experience. However one major benefit (especially for those just getting started) is the low threshold to entry. 

 

You only need 1,000 visitors per month (that’s just 33 per day!), and for which you’ll receive a minimum of a $4 payout ($4 RPM isn’t bad…). You can then transfer this money through a PayPal or AlterPay account to get your money. 

 

 

Adcash (which is not to be confused with AddCash), is another major ad network. The boasts +10k active campaigns, 196 countries served, +10Bn ads served daily. Those are some pretty serious numbers.

 

The number of countries served is hugely important, as if you’re located out the Big 5 (Canada, US, UK, NZ, AU), you’ll still likely be able to serve ads and monetize your content. 

 

The platform is highly versatile, allowing you to run standard display photo and video ads, as well as pop-under ads. 

 

Adcash also has the ability to by-pass ad blockers, which is great news from your point of view as a content creator. The prevalence of ad blocker softwares, has seriously damaged revenue streams for small business owners and bloggers, but Adcash is still able to deliver and pay. 

 

 

Infolinks boasts having over 350,000 publishers worldwide, and their system is designed for simplicity, simply: sign up for free, install code, get paid. 

 

Infolinks specialises in text based banner ads, which are able to leverage the power of search on your display ads. 

 

Infolinks is huge, operating in over 128 countries, and working with some of the biggest brands in the world, like Virgin Airlines, Netflix, Colgate-Palmolive, and many more. Infolinks is designed to make it easy to monetize your site, while not damaging your layout and user experience. 

 

 

Propeller Ads are all about performance-driven revenue for marketers and affiliates, and is specifically enhanced for conversion-focused campaigns. The platform allows advertisers to reach over 1Bn users on their self-serve ad platform. 

 

For more serious advertisers, they also offer push notifications, to reach users even when they’re not browsing. Propeller Ads is a serious player in the game, working with over 150,000 publishers around the world. 

 

One of Propeller Ads key differentiators is they have a special focus on ensuring you don’t receive spammy looking ads, as well as having a 24-hour moderation service. They also have the ability to by-pass ad blockers, potentially boosting your revenues up 20%. Simply sign up, paste code, and start earning. 

 

 

Sovrn // Commerce (formerly known as viglink.com) works with some of the biggest publishers in the space, including DailyBeast, CNet, MSN, StyleCaster, Say, and VerticalScope, and overall they work with over 2 Million publishers around the world.

 

Sovern // Commerce is a great tool if you already have many ad links on your site that you want to monetize. It allows you to create links to your own eCommerce products, Amazon Affiliates, or most major affiliate programs (over 30,000 included). Links are added automatically and payments handled by PayPal to keep things simple. 

 

The platform is also an publishers dream, allowing you to develop custom integrations, allowing you to customize the visual design and layout, as well as tracking the analytics through the entire sales process. 

 

The Sovrn // Commerce also has one of the most advanced dashboards, allowing you at a high-level to view the performance of your campaigns, as well as to understand which channels and placements are performing the best, and which could use improvement. It also allows you to understand the user journey after they leave your site. 

 

 

One alternative to Google Adsense, is to use Google Ad Exchange (aka Adx). In a nutshell, they both operate very similarly, however the key difference is that Google Adsense pays on CPC (cost per click) basis. The advertiser effectively gets charged whenever a user clicks on your ads. No click, no earnings. 

 

The Google Ad Exchange Network however, works on a CPM model (cost per thousand impressions), where advertisers pay for each impression, whether or not the user clicked. As long as the user sees your ads (an impression), then you get paid. 

 

The only draw back to the Google Ad Exchange that keeps many advertisers out of the game, is the need to have 5 Million visitors per month. That’s about 170,000 per day, and if you’re a small website or blog like us (small today – huge tomorrow!), then this may be out of reach today. 

 

Adx integrates seamlessly with its other Google products, making it simple to get setup and get paid. Just gotta get that traffic. 

 

 

Revcontent is new, but is one of the fastest growing on the market. They’re a leader in the content marketing platform, connecting publishers with engaged audiences. They host over 2.5BN content recommendations, this channel has a lot going on. 

 

They work with some of the biggest publishers in the game, including NBC News, Forbes, Wayfair, MediaForce, MinuteMedia, Sports Illustrated, History Network, and Heavy. 

 

For publishers they offer revenue without restrictions, offering a smaller page footprint, lighter and faster ad load speed, and a guaranteed revenue uplift. Revcontent is a modern, flexible and lightweight solution. 

 

They payout minimum is only $50, meaning you get paid quickly. And they have a vast array of customizable widgets, which let you take control, and set up your ad experience as you’d like to. 

 

 

Carbon Ads is designed for advertisers to reach designers and developers at scale. If you’re a tech marketer, or you publish content related to tech, Carbon Ads will be the platform for you. If you write specifically about tech, design and development, Carbon Ads will be able to show highly relevant ads to your audience, increasing clicks and engagement, ultimately earning you more money. 

 

Carbon Ads is used by major advertisers in the tech space, including: Laravel, Coding Horror, Font Awesome, Get Bootstrap, Sketch App Resources, World Vector Logo, JSFiddle, and Dribble. 

 

As the ads speak specifically to designers, the ads are extremely high quality, and well targeted, meaning your website is going to look good and not spammy. However, they do have some restrictions, only accepting certain publishers and requiring minimum page views.

 

 

Bidvertiser is the platform where optimization meets transparency, that simplifies finding the optimal match between advertisers and publishers. Bidvertiser is a self-serve ad platform that makes getting setup and running super simple. 

 

Bidvertiser works with over 78,000 publishers, serving nearly 460Mn ads per day, working in 196 counties,  and delivering nearly 1.6Mn conversions monthly.

Lastly, Bidvertiser is also made to be mobile friendly, which include: Sliders, Native Ads, Smartlinks, Pop-Unders, and Banners – offering a highly versatile experience. 

 

 

Skimlinks is an automated advertising software that allows you to automate the process of setting up affiliate links, so you can better focus on what you do: publishing content. Now we must admit, we aren’t huge fans of automated processes, as we generally like to have full control over how and where our ad placements are being served. 

 

However, if figuring out ads really isn’t your thing and you just want a solution that will get you up and running, the Skimlinks may be the solution for you. 

 

The tool will automate all of your commerce links with affiliate content, and is able to enhance your eCommerce strategies, including email, social media, mobile experience and desktop. 

 

Skimlinks works with over 48,500 advertisers and 50 demand partners. There is also a preferred partner network, that allows you to connect with merchants who offer special commission structures. 

 

Monumetric is ad management done right. This is a network that was founded by publishers (formerly the Blogger Network), built on trust and fueled by data, which means they know exactly what it’s like to be in your shoes as a publisher. 

 

Now Monumetric is a full-service ad management firm, meaning they do handle the ad design and placements. Again, as the control freaks we are, we prefer to have full control over our ad placements, but for those looking to be taken care of and have these setups done for them, Monumetrics could be the solution for you. 

 

Now it is important to keep in mind that Monumetrics goal is to help you achieve your revenue goals, while also offering the highest quality ad experience possible.

Revenues through Monumetrics are often found to be higher than Adsense, making it a great alternative. 

 

To join Monumetrcis you must have at least 10k page views per month (only 350 per day), with at least 50% of your traffic coming from Canada, UK, US or AU, and there is a one-time $99 setup fee.
