rates for ads on affiliate websites

Hi guys,

I just published my first ever affiliate website a month ago. one of the pages of my site now ranks #11 in google australia. then i received an email from someone asking for options and rates for advertisement on that certain page. Any ideas or suggestions on this? I don't know what rates would be reasonable, or what type of advertisement is best so as not to hurt my site.

I think it depends on your traffic and your niche.

It's hard to say. Maybe you could approach other similar websites and see what they quote you. Then you'll know what to quote this person that contacted you.

Thanks for the response cterao.

I don't think i'm getting any traffic yet. My website is new and I don't have any subscribers.

Hi mystique,
I would start out with $5 per month if you have zero traffic and no subscribers.
Then as your site gains popularity you can re negotiate the price.
Think about that for a moment. If you make $60 for the year..you have a profitable site.
I know it's only $60 but it has to start somewhere..

:)

I agree with wollowra. Starting off with a very minimal fee allows people to begin using your site for advertising in a way that is very affordable. As your traffic picks up, even if you keep your prices low, your will have more advertising subscribers.
