What should I charge?

9 replies
Today, I received an email asking what is my rate card for placing a banner ad on one of my blogs.

They want to know what I will charge for a banner ad of 140x140 or 200X200 to be placed on my site.

I was thinking top right for a banner ad on my site.

They want to know what my rate card will be for such a banner ad.
What is a rate card?

What should I reply with $5,$10,$15,$25... per month for such a banner ad?

What are others charging?

thanks in advance...

    If this is your first time maybe 5-10 dollars per month? It really depends on your visitors. How much are you even getting?

    That's not really much in the grand scheme of things. If they are asking, let them make an offer. Better to get some money coming in, then none at all.

    It depends on so much...
    -what are you making right now with your blog
    - what is the ctr for that position
    - what wants the customer to pay
    - what do you think is a reasnable price for that spot
    - want you that customer coming back, make sure that the price is in balance with the ctr

    Voor example... if you use adsense on that position and you can make $5 everyday for that position than the miminum you have to ask per month is $155. But if you sell products through that position, say $17 and can make 2 sales a day than even $1000 per month is not enough....

    Hope this help

    for 1000 pageviews per day ask them for 10$
    or if you are getting less or more ask accordingly
