OK, so many of you are going:
"Yeah, so someone wants to pay you to put some links on your home page...what are you waiting for?"
well, there is NO Advertising on the main page of the site in question.
I never wanted the main page cluttered with Ads...like every other website.
The advertiser is a fairly large company, but they have not told me what "specifically" they want to put up, just text links that are automotive related.
This is a PR5 site and they are asking me "how much" per month.
I have no clue. I have no policy for this.
I know I would not put Google Ads up there, so why should I put their's?
I guess I have a price, everyone does, but I don't know how to determine it. I know how to price other things I do. But not this.
I make money with the websites I do, but the money does not come DIRECTLY from the website. It comes from the activities related to the websites.
I'd love to monetize the site, but not if it turns the thing into another banner-laden crapfest. I'm concerned that first they will want Text ads, then come back and want banner ads, then want Flash Ads....
does this make sense? am I just a whiner?
I have not been around here for awhile, so pointers to other threads that have already dealt with this would be appreciated.
