    BannerMania

    Any one tried them? I've heard they accept small traffic sites as well. I have a new web site with very low traffic, larger networks such as fastclick will probably reject me so I am think about signing up with BannerMania. Any one got any bad complains about them?


    Thanks
    Ben

    sforn,

    I would recommend Banner-Mania.com however I must point a few things out.
    1. They resell for doubleclick.net
    2. Payout is Net 90
    3. They do auto-accept so you will be approved
    4. Read their terms carefully!
    5. From what I have heard they have anywhere from 30-70% defaults.
    6. I don't know anyone who has been paid since they are new so as to credibility of their agency, no one can be sure...
    7. If you really need a sponsor I would use them.
    8. Minimum payout is $50. You say you have a small site... So if you get 5,000 impressions a day with 50% default you will get around $0.60 a day... Around $18.00 a month. It will take you 5-6 months just to get your first check.

    Hope that helps in your decision.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Btw, anyone know why pop up/under pays a much higher CPM?

    Because they're even more annoying.

    They figure you're going to "see" a popup/under. They expect you to actually look at this box that has popped up. Strange, I usually get these killed before they've loaded any content at all.

    Recently, people have learned to tune out 468x60 blocks of annoying graphics.

    (And you'd be suprised what a few lines of text in a HOSTS file will do!)

    Pop-ups have been proven to increase a sites brand and boosts sales. Although, for many sites it just doesn't work out as well as they'd want... X10 does a great job at pops... They have flash ads and are very creative!

    what does that do? I don't have a single clue of that... I know what ad blockers do, but many people are blocking ad blockers now... I also can see a lawsuit against Ad blocking companies soon, but just like Napster's lawsuit this one will take years to resolve!

    Banner-Mania does pay. They are very reliable in paying once you have been with them long enough in order to get paid. I have received a check 4 months in a row now and the total revenue was near 1500 $ so they don't kill accounts with higher revenue either as soon with a few other companies.

    In the terms and conditions of Banner-Mania they say that you can't display their banners in programs. What exactly do they classify as a program? Actual software that you bring up on your desktop and manipulate with your mouse and keyboard? Or does it include scripts and other online software.

    I wouldn't mind giving them a try, but I would be putting their banners in my image galleries which are run by a CGI script.

    Hello friends,

    Just take a look at http://www.banner-mania.com
    and http://www.webhosting.com and see for yourself what they have in common.

    That's fine. they mean games like Stacraft. Most people will pay attention to the game and not the banners.

    so... who copied who? If banner-mania.com copied webhosting.com that is sad! I mean when one wants hosting they will go to webhosting.com so obviously it has to be a very popular domain... On the other hand if webhosting.com stole banner-mania.com that is also pathetic. Ahh well, does anyone know who copied who's layout?

    Well it could have possibly been a free template and they just made new top logos and flash, images whatever....

    Even if the designer was the same, talk about bad service! I would hate if I went with a designer who sold my layout to other people. Nonetheless someone should contact both companies about it...
    I wont because one of those companies is my competition, grrr -_-

    I've seen them periodically. I've requested that they be disabled but banner-mania apparently does not understand that email requires replies.

    Lil_Red did u take out the text below the ads ? they seem to make my site seem tacky to me i emailed banner mania admin to see if its alright to take it out but they didnt give me a response.

    Cuz in there terms it said that the banners must look exactly how they are in the html code section or your like disqualied from getting a check...
