    I get in touch with various banner ad/media networks like cpx and explain who I am and what I need in the investment proposal and they either never get back to me or stall half way. I only have luck with 1 in 10 networks. Is my budget of $xx,xxx so low they don't want to deal with me or do they not need advertisers? Most other networks are more than happy to take my money but these fuckers are just being rude. At least have the decency to reply to my proposal and say that they are not interested at this time or they deal with corporate clients etc.

    Somebody take my money already :(

    What kind of a product are you trying to promote? Many networks accept only certain kinds of banners or certain products. So, make sure you are applying with the right kind of product.

    And also, try to get in touch with the highest possible official in the network instead of contacting the customer support team.

    I'm promoting CPA offers and they are the networks with all those adware, PPI, gambling and trial CC fuck you over type of advertisers so I doubt it's the quality of my offers. I would love to avoid them but I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of traffic. I'm able to get into some of those networks via Adperium but then I can't target or exclude individual websites. I have a suspicion they only deal with $xxx,xxx+ advertisers and got spoiled.

    -edit-

    Are there any networks in right media exchange that do self service ads? Or accept smaller advertisers?

    Not true, I know from my own expirience with a CPA lead company. Belive me but they are well reputated and work with very corperative clients, I become advertiser with them and for start they only wanted $3k.

    So it's always about how they treat their customers. I am customer, I am the one with the money - so why should they not take my money and just get my offer rolling ? Thats a profit for them, and thats what they want !

    First of all I'm talking about media/ad networks. Not CPA. Secondly you can't say it's not true when I'm talking from my own experience unless you are calling me a liar.

    Well, it is true that cpx kind of networks, really just deal with advertisers with budget in 6 figures. You should try contacting a higher authority person in the network or up your budget. Because, otherwise It is very hard to even get a reply from them.

    I've just been told what exactly is happening. Somebody with a 7 digit budget just bought out the whole niche on all major networks. They won't hook you up with a campaign because "these ads require an exclusive relationship with our network" and a buddy of mine just leaked some info about the buyer who I can't possibly compete with.

    Would this in theory be an illegal monopoly over a niche? Even though I'm not sure open market rules apply to the internet.

    most websites offer some of their impression inventory via the google content network
    you can use your adword acct to extend your media buying compaigns
    google ad planner is a great tool to explore this option
