I was just wondering how much is Google charging you for CMP in the Premium Sponsorship advertising.

They are charging us 75 per CPM

Thanks.

Depends on -

1) Your keywords and the available traffic for your keywords
2) Number of competitors
3) Duration of your campaign (3 months? 6 months? 1 year?)
3) Your negotiation skills (apparently)

I was offered $15 CPM for my niche segment keywords.

The price has gone up considerably. For one block of keywords it went up from $35 to $80 this year. Also, they're very difficult to work with - continuously dropping stuff, decreasing exposure, etc. At least that's our experience with them.

I managed to get very high click throughs for my Adwords Select account and very frequently got bumped up to premium listings for no extra cost. This probaly doubled my sales this Xmas.

Hi Marc,

Do you really pay for $15,000 for 3 months?

Is the 15k just a minimum spend?

I am only starting now (dec. 20th I went live) and I have $12,500 scheduled for the 3 month period, just under $15,000. I got the feeling when negociating that if I really wanted to push it I could have got in for maybe 9,000 or 10,000.

The thing is I am extremely happy with the results I am getting, the money coming in far exceeds the money going out, and even though it has only been 5 days, I am confident that I will try to get more traffic coming in for similar terms that I wasn't so sure about originally.

I experimented with keywords I thought might be off focus and low and behold, they are profitable as well. I think it is totally worth it if your landing page does the sale. If you're just sending traffic to a site hoping sales will come through you'd better have deep pockets, cause it can get expensive fast.
