I have space on my site below my menu (you can't see it unless I have an ad there) where I can put some advertising and on the side.
Can someone suggest some reputable ad networks to do this? I haven't used advertising on my site before. I want legit ads and none w/ weight loss etc. Based on my market it would be more technology/software related ads.
Only use Google ad's. Nothing gives as much return. At the moment I get £15 a day. Adbrite I only got £4 on average.
i like the way you put google and facebooka as a partners, lol i used to do that with Apple (until i got c&d) - i put them as 'supporting company', coz i'm using macbook for business lol,
anyhow- you can try comission junction (cj.com), depends what's your traffic, they have plenty of products, softwares, ebooks etc
I will look at cj.com. Also, it was supposed to say Posting Partners for the jobs sections. I updated it. THANKS!
cj.com is pretty much the best you can get, serious company and good support
+1 for Google Adsense... But just one question : why aren't you selling directly your ad spaces?
Good point. I don't have time to sell it and don't want a space on there says "Your Ad could be here". LOL. It's just easier to see what I can put there. I make money off my job postings too.
We use isocket to directly sell ads. They list your inventory on buyads.com and buyers pay them. They keep 9% and send the rest to us. You will get a much higher eCPM doing this rather than AdWords alone. You won't miss out on running AdWords either because you can specify to run them in your remnant space. So ads will always be served, even if it is AdWords.
It's painless and is quite easy to set up and you won't have to sell anything. You'll get sales from big and small companies who make make purchases on buyads.com. I'm quite happy with their service.
We use DoubleClick For Publishers as our ad server. By using that we can set up a hierarchy of ads that we want to run. Our hierarchy looks like this: Direct sale ads > Affiliate products > CPM network ads > Google AdSense and house ads. Using DFP you can input your eCPM for each ad type and DFP will pick the ad that produces the most revenue for you. So if you have an AdSense ad that is making more money than your CPM network ads, it will serve the AdSense ad. It's pretty good. Steep learning curve for me, but I think it's worth knowing.
