I'm in a similar situation myself. I started reaching out to companies that could advertise on a monthly flat rate. It seems like a better solution for me.
First of all, you CTR is way too low. Try to increase it and earnings will be slightly bigger. Second, remove that adsense image because you are breaking adsense rules.
There are a number of things that could be causing such a low CPC
- Where is your traffic from?
- What is your site about?
In some cases, its really only worth 6 cents per click.
Also, why is your CTR so low? Thats a crazy low CTR.
Really low CTR, change ad settings/size/location and we will go from there, just experiment few days.
What kind of ads are you running? Text or Image? How many ad blocks do you have on your site? Are the ads relevant to your niche? You have a low ctr, you need to focus on optimizing the quality of your ads and quality of your site. Make sure your ads are relevant and visible. You need to experiment to see what works and what doesn't.
Yeah that's not a bad idea. Have you just been reaching out to random companies in your niche or looking to see who's advertising on similar sites and just getting in touch with them?
I was working a lot with a video advertising agency who were paying me for sponsored posts which was really good but they've dried up now.
I try and find companies that are really relevant and are spending money in my niche. It takes more legwork, but it is a more stable income, IMO.
it depends on the type of site, though. Your CTR is low, but not for an information site. If you have a MNS or something similar, designed to get adsense clicks, then yes, your CTR is low.
