    Hey,

    I don't see a lot of these threads pop up, and it is something that I'm pretty good at would love to network with others that also participate in Media Buys, banner advertising either on direct sites or networks?

    I've had a really hard time finding any good information about media buys. Read a few shitty ebooks and played with Facebook PPC and Adwords but never with much luck. I'm just now starting to learn how to make squeeze pages and such.
    Paid traffic has always made better sense to me in the terms of scaling up and getting conversions.
    Would love a chance to grab some tips and tricks. Even if it's just a good place to start.

    Have used adBrite back in the day for purchasing banner impressions and have used several private websites before. My experience was that they did not convert well for the price and have since gone back to adwords.

    Riseing,

    thanks for the reply, I've been involved in Media Buys for quite some time. 5-6 years ago things were a lot harder as insertion orders were $5k-$10k, however, now with Networks you can get on some VERY good sites for $10-$20 for 100,000 impressions are so...

    Yea I always get scared off at the "Minimum 1k deposit" mess. I suppose something that I have been getting better at is the tracking aspects. All of the stuff I own is now passed via a tracking system I have installed and that really helps me see what is really going on.
    TBH I'm just sick of SEO in general, I was doing really good for a few months and like a fool I failed to reinvest. But I'm just tired of relying on one traffic source to supplement my day job.
    Any chance you could pm me a few recommendations in the way of sites to buy from?

    Buyads .com and infolinks are some places where you can get started. iA good source on media Buys would be the cpaquantum e-course I think you can still download it here...

    BuySellAds is pretty decent for media buys. You can start off with as low as 10k impressions. Just have to put an ad up smartly!

    If you guys have a little pocket change, I've been using www.sitescout.com, they have a $500 deposit limit, however you can sign up for free and view all their traffic sources and plan out your campaign

    Project wonderful is also a cheap place for placement, the audience is young and responds to game offers. BuySellAds are good for targeted placement, but you pay a premium for any of the sites that have good traffic. Bidvertiser has never converted for me. Any other good sources for targeted ad placement?

    Traffiq.com - has some nice sites. The minimum is $1k if i remember correctly.
    Blogads.com - has some heavy traffic celeb gossip sites and other categories as well.
