    I Have Banner Ad Space… but How Do I Sell It?

    The text ad programsat Volconvo.com have proven very successful, but there don't seem to be a lot of bites for our banner ad program. Current rates are $3 CPM and I've solicited in the very same places—the relevant category on webmaster forum sites. There are also advertise links on the site, but they have not reeled in any advertisers.

    How can I sell my banner space? I have 200,000 monthly pageviews and all I can run is AdSense, which is making a pretty pathetic amount.

    I also tried CJ, but not much luck making money there.

    Have you tried using traditional ad networks like Burst, Casale, Tribal Fusion or ValueClick?

    Although they don't allow many forums into their networks, they do let popular forums in sometimes.

    No, I haven't. I don't qualify for TF. ValueClick IS CJ.com, is it not?

    Yes. We get a decent amount of text sales from there. Thanks.

    CJ are owned by ValueClick, that is true, but ValueClick Media is a CPC/CPM ad network similar to Casale or Burst and has different campaigns and results to CJ.

    Applied for ValueClick and got rejected since I have a forum site. Burst and Casale are pending.

    Try selling your own inventory using sites like adengage.com and adbrite.com
