I run a small public affairs/political blog which has 500-600 unique visitors/day. No advertisers come clamoring to advertise in my blog (not that I wouldn't mind if they did). So I reacted with skepticism today when someone from axill.com asked me what my ppc rate would be for their advertising on my blog.
I visited their website & they appear to be an advertising company. But I can't tell from the site whether or not this is legit. Does anyone know anything about them? They appear (at least fr. the e mail sent to me) to be foreign (again, not that there's anything wrong w. that either).
And if it is legit, would anyone have any suggestions about what a reasonable amt. would be to ask for such a ppc arrangement (given that my site traffic is not huge)?
Got 5 emails from them today. No physical people show up behind it - no names, directors, although there's phone and adress in NJ. They have sample sites (big names) that supposedly run their ads, but I visited these, and ofcourse no axill ads show up. Bad sign.
I'd wait. If you want to risk - do you have any idea how much your Google PPC campaigns make? Double that and offer them, see if they bite.
