Hi guys.

I'm planning to build a new site that will offer free service to it's users.
My problem is that the site have to make significant profit to keep it's
service working and free.

I'm looking for the best methods to make profit with the site.
I already looked for advertising sites for my website, and found that Adify may
be the best option.
I know that my target audience will be very big so I was thinking about combining
CPM ads and other types of ads.

To increase the amount of impressions I thought to add extra things to the service
I want to offer like a form.

There is other options but publishing ads?

sponsors is a good idea.
How does the backlink work? one time payment?

And about Adsense, how is it better? Adify claim they give 80% of the profit
and got paypal payments and let you to choose which kind of ads to show.
(if what I read was true)
It seems better then Adsense.

Tell you from experience, its hard to monetize free content unless you can generate some serious buzz around it. And when you do try to monetize your free content expect to get some heat, for example when Wikipedia and Twitter decided to finally monetize. Get a second job to fund your hobby - because until you are making money its just a hobby.
My friend has a hobby, he gives away $25 every monday (@tweetergames) he makes about $2 - $5 a day tweeting. He has not made a return yet.

Ad disclosure <--- I have a website finally getting some steam, PR3, I pay advertisers to advertise. It's still a hobby i.m.o.

you can join high paid affiliate program. It will get you some money.

Yeah, affiliate links are a good way of monetising and they can be easily woven into the sites content.
