Just received a message with a proposal – they are offering me a banner space for $250 per month. Received also Googla Analytics as a proof – 45 000 unique visitors, 86% Bounce rate…

How do you trust such agreements? What are you asking for? Have you ever agreed to an offer like this?

Any information that you share will be of great help.

Personally I think 250 is a bit high for a website that gets 45k uniques, unless ofcourse they are offering some premium placement and you know their traffic is exactly what you need.

As far as trust is concerned its probably best to go with something like buysellad$ so there is a mediator between the two parties.

edit. It might be better to try the guy for a few thousand impressions for a smaller fee, that way you’ll know if 250 is worth it and if you can trust the people.

Hello,

It’s too expensive for just a small amount of unique visitors. My website has been receiving 100k unique visitors but only charge for $40 for a 125×125. Envato authors have been advertising on my website as people really visit their items. 3k referred members are my proof.

I agree with codeblvck. You should try buysellads – or direct ad to get discounts :)
