Renting Space On Websites: HELP!
A very well known international retailer contacted me to place a link on one of my niche websites for a fee.
The offer is to place a banner ad on every page of my site. The product is completely unrelated to my niche. Any ideas about how much to ask for? Doing a link swap is out of the question for them because it would totally muddy their brand.
Based on my research of their back links (which are many), the vast majority of their links are from online affiliates, retailers, or naturally linking from people simply talking about the brand. It seems as though they are looking to diversify, but it's a bit of a mystery to me why they would have interest in my site for back links.
Rather, they might think there are potential buyers coming to my site and it's not just for the link. I've purchased links from PR3 sites that are not on the normal networks for dirt cheap, so, I'm wondering if I shouldn't be asking for a lot more than what would be expected from a tiny little site.
My little niche site is PR0, 10 pages, and gets about 80 uniques every day. Any ideas about what I should be asking for rental on a converting site, rather than just a link?
Thanks for your input ahead of time!
