How do you find buyers for banner spaces?

11 replies
Hi Warriors,

I posted a thread the other night on what you can charge for banner spaces on your website, now I would like to know if any of you have any ideas on how to find buyers for ads and banner spaces.

Please share your knowledge or links!

    Karl,

    If you put a link on your home page that says something like:

    Advertise Here!

    I am sure that you will find buyers. You just have to give them some proof that your site is worthy of their cash. Show them how many visitors you are getting each day/week/month.

    buysellads.com will help you sell ad space, but they'll also take a decent chunk of your earnings as well. The upside with them is that they handle the actual payments and such, so it's pretty hands free for you.

  • Figure out who your website visitors would be helped by if they found a specific company banner on your site.

    I have a list of about 2 dozen specific companies that fit well within my niche. I have reached out to some, others have found my site and approached me to advertise.

    In the meantime, set up an adsense account and fill your vacant space with ads that can bring in some passive income while you market your site to possible advertisers.

    PS: If you don't have one already, put together a media deck. Most company ad agencies or marketing departments will want to know your site statistics and demographics. Having a file ready to email, will be handy so you don't have to scramble when someone requests your site info and rates.

      Thank you, might I just ask what a media deck is and how you set it up?

  • Putting an 'advertise here' ad/banner on your website.
    Tweet to your followers, publish on Facebook, Instagram, linkedin, etc.

    Use forums and put a signature offering ad space.

    Try buysellads.

    Use google search operators for easy search reliability.

    Example: inurl:marketing allintext:advertise here
    allintitle:internet marketing allinanchor: advertise here

    Here is a list of google search operators: Google Search Operators - Google Guide

    That should save you a lot of time manually searching for the right type of sites. HOWEVER....with that said, there are a few sites out there that will allow advertising that DO NOT have "advertise with us" type of pages or links. These can sometimes be goldmines as they really do not know the true market value of their website.

    I typically hire VAs (virtual assistants) to do this sort of work for me.
