    Direct Advertising Sales - Need Advice!

    Hello everyone.

    I am thinking of trying to start producing a revenue with my make money online blog by directly contacting individuals, businesses and organizations that might be interested in purchasing advertising space on my blog. However, I'm a little uncertain about two things:

    1. How much should I charge?
    2. Do you have any recommendations regarding places I could contact?

    Right now, I have several advertising slots available:
    1. 125x125 Ad Slot
    2. In-Content (appears in the top-right of every post) 300x250.
    3. Middle-Ad - appears on the homepage beneath the first piece of content listed. (468 x 60)
    4. Footer-Ad - appears in the footer on all pages. (468 x 60)

    Right now, I have 2, 3 and 4 filled with just affiliate banners. But, I'd at least like a range of what I could charge for these slots. Obviously, I'm not expecting anything too high. I'm just not sure what to expect at all. :P

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    P.S. Maybe I'll give free advertising to whoever can help me the most. :P

    Take a look at how much your competitors in the same niche are charging, with similar PageRank and Alexa numbers.

    If necessary, register a gmail account and contact your competitors as a potential advertiser.

    That's different for every niche, but a good tactic is to look at your competitors site and contact the people who are buying advertising from them.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory

    IMO

    create threads on lot of webmaster forums and make offer and call webmaster to bid....

    may be in first month you get low but in next month/period sale refer to your previous sale page details and make previous sale price as a starting bid price

    this is also a good service if you are ready to pay fees. Online Advertising | BuySellAds.com
    after sale you can contact buyer and offer him less price next time if he is ready to buy directly
