I am going to tell you how you can earn your 1st million-dollar online with live sports events using free traffic sources in 2020. Sport is a $620 Billion market which makes it very clear for us, why we should promote live sports events online. We can easily make money from 8000 sports types, of which 200 of them have international recognition. Some of the popular sports that I am going to talk about are MMA, Boxing, Football, Soccer, NBA, NFL.
Which Sports Niches to Promote?
Let’s start the journey. The first sports niche I am going to mention is Mixed Martial Arts(MMA). These include UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), Bellator MMA, One Championship, PFL (Professional Fighters League), RIZIN, Cage Warriors. These are the most famous MMA promotions.
The 2nd popular sports niche is Boxing and can bring in insane website traffic and sales. Some of the leading boxing companies are Matchroom Boxing, Golden Boy Promotions, Top Rank Boxing, Mayweather promotions, etc.
The third widely popular sport is soccer. We also call it football, but not Americans. Some of the high traffic soccer tournaments are FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europe League, English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, France Ligue 1 and so on.
I just listed three of the biggest traffic sports niches that can easily bring you tens of millions of website visitors and make thousands of dollars in 2020.
Now, you have basic knowledge of, what did I mean when saying make your first million-dollar online using live sports events.
The next thing you have to do is pick up an upcoming sports event, drive traffic and make sales.
Let’s start to learn how to start promotion and making your first dollars online using live sports events.
First of all, you have to choose a sporting niche and an actual upcoming event. For the best traffic and sales, let’s choose soccer, MMA and boxing events for 2020.
Some of the high traffic upcoming sports events are
UFC 247 – Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes – February 8, 2020
UFC 248 – Israel Adesanya vs Yoel Romero – March 7, 2020
UFC 249 – Khabib NurMagomedov vs Tony Ferguson – April 18, 2020
Nearly, every UFC fight has greate traffic, even the fight nights.
Heavyweight – Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury II – February 22, 2020
Above one will be the most popular boxing event of upcoming months, but there will be alike events till the end of the year too. Also, almost every weekend has several boxing matches, try to promote them too.
English Premier League – until May 17, 2020. Most matches are held on Saturdays and Sundays. EPL is alone like a world championship and you can easily get unbelievable huge traffic every weekend. I am talking about 100s thousands of visitors every week mainly from the United Kingdom.
Spain La Liga – until May 24, 2020. Just like EPL, La Liga is one of the most-watched country leagues. Keep your eyes on derby matches like Barcelona and Real Madrid. It is like the final of the FIFA Cup and can bring in 100s thousands of worldwide traffic in a single day.
UEFA Champions League – The matches keep going until the final event on May 30,2020.
UEFA Europe League – lasts until May 27,2020. Not so popular like UCL, but can bring in extra thousands of traffic to make a few sales during the season.
UEFA Euro 2020 – from 12 June to 12 July 2020. Less than 5 months remain for the event to begin. Plan your promotion to make a killing in summer with my step by step traffic method below.
Those are above the most popular sports events that can make you a millionaire. But, eventually, you can increase the number of sports events to maximize your revenue. The sky is the Limit! You can see the major sporting events schedule from this link.
Niche is Selected, How to Start the Process?
If you have already decided what to promote, it is time to start a website for that niche. I advise you to make a general sports blog because in this way you can add new niches to the same blog eventually. So the only thing you need is to start a live sports events blog or website.
Domain Name – must be short, preferably .com extension as people trust it more. Example: live247.com. Also, remember to enable whois privacy protection for the domain name.
Here are a few sites to buy cheap domain names
Namecheap.com – .com domain is $9.07+ free whois
Namesilo.com – .com is $8.99 + free whois protection. Use code NameSilo1DollarOff for $1 off your purchase.
CMS – use only WordPress for the content management system. Because it is the most secure and easy to customize for your needs. You can do an easy one-click WordPress installation after you get a hosting account.
WordPress Theme– you can use free themes from WordPress repository, but I highly recommend to get Divi theme, the ultimate page builder for WordPress. With Divi, you can quickly make custom WordPress sites by just dragging and dropping.
The live stream website you are going to build, hopefully, will get lots of traffic. For this reason, you will need fast, reliable and always uptime WordPress hosting. Here are two of them.
Wpengine.com – the number one WordPress managed hosting company. With the price of $29/month, you get 2 months free when you pay annually. Additionally, you receive the Genesis Framework with 35+ premium WordPress themes ($499.95 value) for free with any subscription plan.

How to Monetize Live Sports Events Website?
Actually, there are endless ways to monetize any kind of website. But, for the live stream blog, they are CPA and Adsense mainly. You can use both on your website to maximize the earnings. If you don’t have any CPA accounts, please read below how to sign up for one. Or if you already a member of some known networks, use them on your website. This is also applied to Adsense. You can also use some Adsense alternatives on your blog as well.
Ad-center.com – is the most reputable CPA network for this kind of website. They are 10+ years in this market and have more than 5.000 active affiliates. You can earn up to to$57 per CPA depending on the country. The only thing the users have to do is to put their CC details to make you a sale. They offer bi-weekly payments for all affiliates.
Google Adsense – the best and advanced contextual ad platform in the world. I am using them on all of my websites. You can easily make $100-300 in a single day from live event traffic. For example, I am making $200+ per day with just Adsense on weekends from only English Premier League matches.
How to Get Free Traffic for Sports Events?
So, if you followed the steps above, now you should have a ready website to drive loads of free traffic. The traffic must be super targeted to convert to sales and get many ad clicks for contextual advertising.
My best traffic sources for sports events are Twitter, Youtube, and Reddit.
Twitter – is the 36th most visited website on the web and has a very targeted sports traffic. Actually, millions of people look for the stream links when an event begins and even several hours before that. So, what you need to make it work for you?
Aged Twitter Accounts – this is because aged accounts have authority like in many social platforms. You have to create many tweets with links during the events, so old accounts won’t be blocked by the Twitter algorithm.
Youtube – owned by Google and is the number one video platform in the world. When you upload a new video, you can get the traffic from Google search and Youtube itself.
Aged Youtube Accounts – like with Twitter, older accounts have many advantages. The newly uploaded videos can get immediate traffic and rank in search results of Google and Youtube within minutes. Moreover, aged channels with old videos that have thousands of views are the ones you should look for.
Reddit – is another popular social network with 1.4 billion monthly visitors. Reddit.com is well-known for its subreddit pages with thousands of daily active members. Also, its pages rank well on search engines and trusted by Google.
Aged Reddit Accounts – you can easily create new subreddits, live threads and comment links without worrying.
Now, let’s start to learn how to drive traffic through these social networks. First, you need to buy aged accounts, dedicated proxies, automation bots and set up everything.
Websites to Buy Accounts,Proxies and Tools
- Valar Solutions – you can buy aged Twitter and Youtube accounts from this seller. He will always provide you with quality accounts.
- Buyaccs – buy Reddit accounts from this seller. Also, you can purchase an old Youtube and Twitter accounts from this shop as well.
- BlazingSeo – get USA dedicated proxies from this website. They are the best proxy provider, I am using them for 2 years with no problems at all.
- Buyproxies – here is another site for quality proxies. Always buy dedicated proxies, as semi-dedicated ones are shared with 5 users and almost always are flagged by most of the social networks.
- Valar SMS – quality SMS verification service. If needed, you can use it to verify your accounts within seconds.
- Sms Activate – another SMS verification provider for the cheap price.

- Kapwing & Canva – both are free tools that you will need to create images, slides, videos and other things related to this promotion.
How to Start Promoting your Website
Assuming, you got all the accounts and tools above, you can start driving traffic instantly.
First of all, import the Twitter account you purchased into the automation bot. The accounts may ask for phone verification, use the above tools to verify.
I suggest you purchase at least 30 Twitter accounts for the start. You can open 3 instances of TwitterDub and divide the accounts as follows. 20 for tweeting, 5 for retweeting and the last 5 for liking.
This is simple, just post the tweets from 20 accounts, retweet and like them with your other accounts. Thus, your tweets will get higher rankings in the Twitter search. Here is one day Twitter traffic for one my urls. (histats screenshot)
For Youtube, you can upload videos or do a live stream from your accounts. To make HD videos just use any video editing software. I am using Video Sping Blaster pro to create hundreds of HD videos quickly. Just insert some images or videos and click the generate button, and your HQ video will be ready in minutes. Use Mass Video Blaster Pro to upload hundreds of videos to many Youtube accounts.
To do a live stream on Youtube, I am using the Live Event Blaster 2 tool. I just launch the software, choose the Youtube account then choose the video. Next, choose to loop the video continuously so the live stream continues until the event ends.
To make Reddit.com send traffic to your website, you need to create subreddits and live threads. Besides, you can also comment on related subreddit posts to promote your website.
