    I wasn't sure where to post this, so sorry if it's in the wrong place.

    I was contacted a couple of times by an Indian ad company called accu-rate media. They claim they will pay me between $10-20 to guest post on my site. They said the articles would be relevant and well written (containing one client link). What are your thoughts on this? I have no real problem with this and don't think my audience will either. Is this a standard practice? I am surprised that someone is offering to give me money!!

    They also want to know if I would accept banner ad (which I would) and how much I charge. - whether that is a flat rate or CPM. I want to charge them a flat rate but have never negotiated anything like this before, so I am at a bit of a loss. My site gets anything between 300-800 views a day all from US or UK traffic.

    I am a bit confused, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    $10-20 for first post is probably too low, depending on niche and quality of site.
    as for banner ads, depends what the space is worth to you.
    as a general rule, I'd probably triple my Adsense earnings for that particular spot, to give me a guide price.
