Hi all. I just launched a brand new site http://www.teamphotoshop.com and I am hoping this will turn into the best photoshop portal there is. My question is I am thinking about advertising on the site and I want to know if there are any companies out there that I could run ads for my target audiece. Like run ads for Adobe stuff, Corel, etc. Stuff designers really get into. Or am I stuck with just signing up with someone and getting run of the mill ads that most of which will mean nothing to my visitors. I have a software store and bookstore set up but was thinking about running banner ads as an option. The site is new but the original http://pankpages.com gets about 100,000 page views a month and I'm expecting this new site to even do better once word gets spread around. Do you guys even suggest banner ads for a site like mine? I have really never tried to make money at this but it would be nice to recoop some of the costs. I really appreciate your help and suggestions. My target audience is fellow graphic/web designers... Thanks....
