Default Blog Ads Cost

I want to try advertising on a few blogs. I asked the blogger and he told me that his blog fetchs an average of about 5000 ppl a month i was wondering what is a good monthy offer for that amount of traffic.

Thanks Rufflez

Hi Rufflez. You've asked a broad question and I would reply, "It depends."

First, how do you know the blogger really gets 5k visitors a month? Do they show you their actual web stats?

2nd, where would your advertising appear? Text links that are inserted within blog posts are worth a lot more than a little graphic button on the sidebar.

3rd, is the audience of the blog your target audience? You could pay a $100 for a blog that gets 100k visitors a month, but none of those visitors buy anything from you, you've just wasted $100.

If this is a blog that you've identified as the perfect market, see if you can offer $100 for a text link at the bottom of one of the blog posts for six months. Choose a post that is particularly relevant to your web site, and one that gets a lot of traffic. I think these are much more effective than having an ad on the sidebar.

In the end, a good price is something that brings in tons of qualified traffic that makes more money than what you are spending to get them there. I know that sounds lame, but there isn't any real standard price for any kind of advertising on the internet. Even Google AdWords can range from $.05 to $2.00 per click. Make the blog an offer and see where the negotiations go.

Good luck.

Ya it depends, There are no standard pricing structures across the Internet. You will need to take a look around, do some research, and experiment on different blogs to find the rates .

There is a advertising program called Project Wonderful and you can at least give it a try, it's not real costly - depending on what your niche is, and how much per day you are willing to pay, but if you allow people to advertise on your site, you get credit as well.
