We recently received the following inquiry regarding Advertising on our site:
"I've recently looked over your site and believe that your reader-base and visitors might be a possible advertising venue for us.
I am interested in traditional link advertising as well as using link "blurbs" on certain pages of your site, or on certain articles. Perhaps even submitting articles. This includes but is not limited to purchasing a post also. We are open to any idea that would allow us to capture interested readers, but would prefer to avoid the traditional "Ads by Google" and "Sponsored Links" sections.
Please let me know if you'd be open to discussing advertising possibilities further."
We have not yet previously sold Advertising like this on our sites, so ...
Our Question is ...
How Much should we Ask this person / potential Advertiser for in terms of these types of requested Advertising on our site?
Right now our site (for this discussion) has a Google Page Rank = 5/10 and a 3 Month Average Alexa Rank = 196,545
So again ...
How Much should we ask for each of these types of Advertising on our site?
Should we ask them to make us their Best Offer?
In which case, what would be the Minimum we should Accept / Entertain for our site at this time?
Any and All of your responses and help in these regards would be Most Appreciated!
Thank you all for all of your participation and help! and Have a Great Day!
