Ok, I guess this isn't a bad thing at all! lol But I don't have a clue what to tell them!
here is what they are asking
...I was contacting you with hopes that your would place an in-text link on your page. We would
compensate you for your time and space. If you are interested, please let
me know. ....
How do you figure out what to charge?
How do I find out the going rate.
I do not advertise alot on my blog, so I am gonna be very very picky about the few ads I do display.
any tips and insight would be appreciated..
I'm kinda lost , as you can see. lol
Text links usually go about $20-$30 a month. Make sure that the links have something to do with mothers, parenting, kids, families because if it's something really off like auto repair, for example, then Google will drop your pagerank down and you don't want that.
If you have any other questions, post here or send me MBC email. I'll be happy to help.
I am new at this, but here is what I am doing so far. I use 'Show your ad here.com', you copy the HTML and place their button where you want the ad to be located, set up per week price on their website. Then potential advertisers can click on the ad, set everything up online, and you will get paid through PayPal. The only problem is you will be charged 25% for the service. The plus is you don't have to deal with emailing back and forth, payments, etc.
Of course the price depends on your traffic and how relevant the ad is to your audience. I think it generally goes anywhere from $20 to $50 and up for higher traffic sites, with top bloggers charging over $1,000 for ads.
