    Need Help - Contacted by Advertiser

    Ok, somebody from edelman.com emailed me and said "Can you please send me the monthly ad rate info?" and basically... I dont know what to do

    From their site they look like a large PR company. Should I just reply and say a certain price for each ad unit on my site per month? If I own a gaming site, what would be a good CPM that I could use to calculate the price per month? What kind of ads do they have, any know if it would be specifc to gaming or not?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me

    Without seeing your site it is hard to say. I suggest giving them a monthly rate quote, that would bring a smile to your face.

    Charge no less than you would make from Adsense in the same spot.

    You can offer them your ad spots on a CPM or per month basis - both work well - it just depends what the advertiser is after. I agree with cutter though - never go lower than what you would make with AdSense for the same spot.

    Cheers

    This would depend greatly on what industry your site is involved in, and the quality of your traffic. If you have a niche site that targets a specific market, you'll be able to get a much higher CPM than with a more general website.

    I'd go higher than you expect to get and see what they say. Just don't go too high to scare them off.
