    How would one go about getting ads

    I run a fairly small site, you can click my www link if you wanna see, and Was curious on how I would go about getting ads. I dont wanna make a bunch of money, i'd just like it to support itself(roughly 60$ year)

    I personally dont understand how all the diff types of ad systems work. Are they all clickthroughs? or do some people pay just to have them on your site? and would a site that gets as little hits as mine, roughly 100 uniques a day, be something someone would do an ad thing for.


    I guess since its so small as of now, i'd be happy just to do an affiliate ad thing, just to get more hits. Could someone maybe explain some of these things to me?

    These are the basic ads:

    CPM (most popular for banners): Amount per 1,000 impressions - $.20 - $.50 for general audience site usually.
    CPC : Cost Per Click - ranges greatly depending on product and ad
    CPA : Cost per action - Can be a commission for a sale, revenue for generating leads, etc.

    Since you only get 100 uniques a day, try to get your traffic up first. Then, apply to networks, and try to get direct advertisers.

    Some networks:
    http://www.fastclick.com
    http://www.doubleclick.com
    http://www.burstmedia.com

    Visit the Promotion and Marketing forum for tips in getting your traffic levels higher.

    Since your a young site, you can go to Commission Junction and sign up. After you register you can apply to different companies to display their ads and get a commission for each sale.

    Other similar sites are
    www.linkshare.com
    www.befree.com
    www.onresponse.com

    Good luck, I can't seem to make a dime.
