Traffic Matters the most
If you want to make money online by getting someone to advertise on your site, the first thing they are going to see is your traffic stat. If you are getting very low amount of traffic, lets say only 10 visitors per day then i am sure that you are probably not going to get any advertiser for you site. They mainly want that you have a considerable amount of traffic (visitors). If you have traffic then you can easily get advertisers or If you are not getting traffic then i suggest you to focus on building good amount traffic first. There is 20,000 page views per month required for basic ads and at least 100,000 for traditional advertisers, its just an average rate and it varies for different ad networks companies.
It is much better and helpful if your site is focused on a particular niche. It make much easier for advertisers to reach their desired audience.
People will respect you more and they will love to advertise on your site if they see that you have a huge followers, its just like a popularity game.
Make It Easy For Advertisers To Contact You
Your website should have “Advertise with us” page located on menu of your website, it is one of the simplest you can do get advertisers easily and it is also necessary if any visitor/advertiser like your site and want to advertise on them, they will get to know that you are ready to publish. If you have “Advertise with us” page on your site, advertiser will feel free to contact you?
You can let your readers know that you are searching advertisers by publishing a blog post. You can send email to your subscribers mentioning you are searching advertisers.
Visit top and popular blogs of your niche and have a look to find out what kind of companies are advertising with them, make a list of companies & ad networks and contact them.
According to our experience, it is a much easier to get advertisers if you are having good amount of visitors, the more you grow your audience the more likely advertisers will come to you.
Join best Ad Network
Google AdWords is the biggest and most popular ad network for advertisers. On the other side, the Google AdSense program is designed for publishers like you and me. It’s fairly easy to sign up. You’ll need a legitimate telephone and mailing address. Google will confirm on both.
Once you are approved for Google AdSense program, you will then determine the size of your ad units which comes in different shapes. You can even add tags that will allow advertisers to target a particular ad. for example, a Leaderboard (728 x 90 pixels) in top center of your home page.
You would most likely get paid by each click (CPC) instead of impressions (CPM) or the result of a sale (CPA). This is fine at the beginning. But eventually you want to reach the point where you will get paid simply by showing your ad to your customers. The advertisers would determine that based on the perceived desirability of your blog.
On what basis you’ll be Paid
There are three payment models in online advertising.
Cost Per Click or CPC is payment for each click. The price can range from a few pennies to tens of dollars. With proper planning and research by using the AdWords Keyword tool, you could start a blog whose niche overlap with high paying keywords. The downside is that high paying keywords often have low traffic, so it is highly recommended to do proper research before starting something new.
CPM is the cost per 1000 ad units. In other words it’s how much the advertiser would pay you every 1000 times the ad is displayed on your website. If you have a high traffic website, this is an excellent earning model for you as the publisher because it doesn’t require action from your visitor for you to earn money!
CPA also known as Cost Per Action pays a lot more for each instance than CPC & CPM, but is also harder for you to get paid because it requires your visitors to take a particular action such as buying a particular product.
There are plenty of other networks out there, but nobody beats Google AdSense for simplicity and ease of use. There is no minimum traffic requirement as many ad networks require, 100,000 page view minimum. It’s probably the best way to get started especially if you don’t have much of an audience yet.
Why Should we Go With An Individual Advertiser?
Ad networks are easy but individuals affiliate programs is lot more profitable. This eliminate the middle person fee from you commission and you will get a 100% payment from the advertiser. It is good for both you and the advertiser. You are building a true long term partnership that will grow and become more lucrative.
Do focus on the growth of your site and provide great content. Don’t focus on monetizing from the very first day because you will get disappointed with the result. Once you are done with the growth of you site, advertisers will find you!
