    So I've started to get some decent traffic on my website, and I have 20 people who I took into the 'allowed' category who can buy ads on the website. What I was thinking of doing is basing it on a CPM.

    My niche: Entertainment
    Average CPM for that niche is around $7.50 for 2009(Q3), this is the latest I could find. So I want to lower it and make it around $5.00 CPM.

    I had two ideas in mind, and I wanted to run it by you guys to see which one is more profitable, and which one is better for the people who will be allowed to post ads. And if one good for me, and the other one is good for them, perhaps we can makes some sacrifices that everyone will be happy.

    I also added a + and - to what I might think might go good/bad.

    Tell me what you guys think.

    SO!
    $5.00/1000 impressions
    That counts for 1 banner, 2 banners in total.

    Bogus impressions:
    Monday - 9,453
    Tuesday - 5,232
    Wednesday - 7,232
    Thursday - 6,232
    Friday - 7,252
    Saturday - 10,124
    Sunday - 12,532

    PLAN_B
    What do you guys think?

    Thank you so much

    I'd say not to worry so much about plan A as those who are interested likely have done this before and are well aware of what they're getting into.
