It really depends on what your site is about, but seeing as how your adsense is so low, it's not a high dollar area. BTW how many impressions per month does adsense say you get as awstats stats tend to show on the high side of hits, traffic etc, so adsense impressions should give you a reasonable guesstimate as to your total page views per month.
You can see what others in your niche charge, or throw out a number and see if they take you up on it. If they do, you're probably too low and if they don't, ask them what's fair for them and go from there. You can always fine tune month by month to come to the right figure for both parties.

Thanks for your reply. I also use AXS - a basic on page tracking software that seems pretty good at counting unique visitors and pageviews. AXS does report around 5-10% less visitors than Awstats - not such a big difference. And Google Adsense is somewhere in between.

there really is no set way you have to do it
most people sell baner space CPM but you can serve test ads cpc or banners cpc too
you can invoice them net 15 after the month for a net 30 payment or you can ask for half upfront or all upfront
really large companies sometimes expect an invoice
and some publishers require some or all pre-payment if the advertiser is new or unheard of
and yes, i would go for double my adsense rate to make it worth my trouble, after all adsense is much easier and some advertisers expect you to quote an inflated price and negoiate downward
now if you were a really large site then 50% or 33% increase in revenues over adsense would be a nice gain, but otherwise i would shoot for double and not budge an inch

I am looking answers for this very question, except that us being a high traffic site are looking for advertisers and looking for a way to decide the charge.
Since direct deals shall be based on impression basis, will it be fine if we go simply for, say 1.25 times the eCPM that Adsense offers for that niche.

I want to know what is high traffic and what is considered low traffic. How do you go about approaching companies for advertising? Do you wait for them to ask you?
I have 377,538 Pageviews for the past 30 days. Where do I stand in the eyes of advertisers?

Depends on the niche. We server over 3 million pageviews/month and we are considered a mid-sized site in our industry.
However if you were a very narrow niche, 300k pageviews might make you top dog. It all depends.
