Hi, a online sport site ask me to send price of this ads:

1) price per month for adding contextual link at the home page
2) price per month for adding contextual link at the inner page (must be sports related)
3) price per month for adding a page (with a unique content that I will send) with our link
4) price per month for adding small 125x125 banner at home or inner page

How can evalutate it? How much should I ask?

    Hi and Welcome to WF!

    For contextual links it depends on your websites PR. If you have a high PR site with loads of quality backlinks then you can ask more.

    As for banner placement, this would depend on your website traffic. Higher the traffic higher the price per month.

    It's hard to say how much you should charge until you won;t disclose this to the community.

    I hope this helps. Cheers!

      Hi, my site PR is 0, my visitors are about 30 per day, and I have about 1000 subscribers.

      Can you give me an estimate value range?

      Thanks

        I would ask how much they can afford to pay, then counteroffer with an increase of 20%

    Hmmm...that's pretty low. I would suggest you to offer them $30 a month for banner advertisement, while $10 a month for a link. You can always negotiate...

      Ok! And for " price per month for adding a page (with a unique content that I will send) with our link"

      the price should be greater than 30$?

        Hi alesh,

        $30 might be too high.

        The going rate for ad space in your niche is usually somewhere between $5-$15 per thousand visitors. With fewer than one thousand unique visitors per month it would be a premium price to get as much as $30 for a banner on your busiest page. Links on lower traffic internal pages would be of even less value.

    Hi!
    The conceptual link you should give based on the PR as said above but the traffic is also a factor. Though for conceptual link traffci may not matter much but for 125X125 it would. IF high PR page have less traffic then it would not get as much as it want.
