All well and good, but I question this phrase:
I would like to speak about purchasing advertising space on your site.
I get similar to that once a day. Senac is the current bane. I am more careful than ever of anyone making inquiries about advertising. The current trick is to say they are real serious about advertising on your site and want your traffic numbers. The other one, is to send you a 'hey great site dude' letter just to get your email address.
I am speaking about your unsold inventory. We are a network, so we have a network of advertisers anywhere from 75-150 at any given time. We are totally non-exclusive and pre-emptible so you may take us down if you get a better deal.
Pretty much what I expected, but I thought it would make an interesting thread for those just now seeking out banner brokers.
