    what do you mean by limited budget? are you talking about $200?
    if that's the case then adbrite and adsense is your only option

    I would disagree with you. You can start advertising campaign with a limited budget now using other self-serve platforms, i.e. BuySellAds, McTraffics, maybe even FaceBook Ads if they accept your ad.

    If you have limited budget, you can research forums and blogs which related to dating niche. You can post meaningful comments to blogs and meaningful postings to forums. And also social networks e.g: Facebook, MySpace. This can bring free traffic and convert it into sales.

    After you get the money, you can consider paid traffic.

    I've used Mctraffics in the past but never buysellads. Is there any noticeable difference between the two as far as effectiveness?

    the only thing that concern me about mctraffics is that they never tell you which site your ad be on?
    there is a good chance a robot not a real person will be seeing your ad

    I haven't any problems with them.
    I have bought two ad packages: 50000 US impressions ($19.99) for test and 100000 US impressions ($34.99).
    I paid via PayPal.
    All is very simply.
    CTR: 0.74% and 0.83%.

    I'm satisfied with this service)

    At this moment I have 5 conversions.
    Therefore I'm sure these clicks are from people.

    As I wrote earlier buysellads is too expensive for my ad campaign.
    In my opinion McTraffics is better and some simpler for users...

    If you have limited advertising, invest in SEO like backlinking and SEO guides. It takes a lot longer to make money but it's cheap, almost free if you do it slow.

    Need to invest your limited money in a banner advertising and SEO at the same time for better effect.
    Do you agree?

    Hi guys,
    Let me interfere here. McTraffics is run by Fidelity Media Advertising Network. And it's actually a global network, they have traffic from all over the world and their Advertisers and Publishers are in fact from all the parts of the world.

    Thanks for your discussion, it's always nice to see interest to our project!

    I think you'd better change the niche for this budget
