    Default Recommended Advertising models

    I am interested in building an advertising business model into my sites where I charge advertisers a flat rate for placement on my website(s).

    So far my model has been affiliate marketing based only.

    What should I charge for a text link on my site? What about a banner? Should banners be priced based on size or position on the site or both?

    I've seen all kinds of different prices doing while doing research. I have no clue what works best.

    Lastly, does anyone know of an open source ad management software package for webmasters? If there is such a thing.

    Cheers, Best Poker

    you need massive traffic to get away with charging a fee to advertise on your site. And if you are getting that kind of traffic you might want to stay with a rev share model because it would probably be more lucrative in the long run.

    If you haven't got the traffic then you need PR, which you don't really have.
    Take a look at xhttp://www.linkadage.com/. (remember to remove the x).
    You can buy and sell links/text ads here and it will give you some idea of what others charge.

    You shouldn't charge more for the spot than what you can make with it yourself. Otherwise your clients would be looking at monthly losses.
