    Hi guys,

    I have seen a few people advertise to sell their Signature ad space. What do you think is a fair monthly price for a normal sized banner ad in this space? Also he/she will be posting daily and be active = 90 posts minimum /month.

    Thanks for the feedback in advance :)

    You need to consider that it costs $97 per year to be able to post signature links, and 3 links can be used. Do the math.

    You need to be a Jr. VIP before you can offer to buy or sell signature space.

    Also, the price depends on how "visible" one is on Black Hat World.
    In other words, if members hardly know an individual, it is unlikely
    that one would want to rent his/her sig space for very much $$$.

    Yea I know that. I want to find out what a fair price is I should pay someone for this. If you say $97/12 = $8.08/month /3 = $2,69 per link as the cost. But thus still does not answer my question on what a fair price would be to pay someone for this mate.

    If they post like I mentioned minimum 90 posts/month are we looking at $20/month per link or $100/month per link? An estimate based on your opinion would help :)

    You are looking to buy sig space ? Generally its $15 to $80 a month depending. For a decent well respected member who post regularly its $30-$40

    Why dont you just go vip yourself ? save a few quid and have a direct connection.

    Yes and thanks for the feedback! I will be doing that as soon as I am a member for 60 days so I can be Jr.vip as well. But I want to use a few other people as well to advertise.

    So if you had to sell the banner space in your sig, how much would you ask? In all seriousness now... $80/month?

    You can become a donor member(pink) today and add links to your sig. I have a longterm agreement with the people I advertise thats not just based on money its a mutual respect but there are plenty of good people that will promote your site for far less than 80 bucks.

    Pink? LOL sorry if its a dumb question. And I was told that if I pay for donor status now I have to pay again for Jr.vip? I have made over 100 post and need a few more days to go before I have been a member for 60 days. Can you maybe correct me if I was informed wrong.

    Thank You for your time bro

    the amount you will make is based on several things
    how long u have been here , the quality of your posts
    your overall activity .

    as for sigs - they can have 3 links like mine or 1 banner ......
    as bhw highest member poster i make 1800$ a year of my 3 links
    50$ a month, but, thats an amount im happy with and could command
    more..

    some take only what they need...some take all they can get
    as a new member - ude be looking around 20/30 a month
    per link possibly

    Might be better asking a mod about that but my understanding is you can upgrade free of charge to blue if you are pink and meet the conditions.

    You can RENT a JR VIP signature Space.
    There is a marketplace in Jr ViP visible only to jr vip and mod's.Once you Upgrade you can post a thread with your prices and other issues to rent a signature or if you want to rent your signature you can post that as well.
    I Would Suggest wait for a while once you complete 60 days you can be a JR VIP after the payment.

    If you have 100 post points and are a member for at least 60 days, you
    can pay $97 and go straight to Jr. VIP status. If you pay $97 BEFORE you
    have 60 days and 100 posts, the most you can be is a DONOR. That
    means that you would still have to pay $97 more to upgrade to Jr. VIP
    once you have reached the 60 days/100 posts mark.

    So paying before the 100posts/60day requirement you will have to pay a total of $97 x 2 for JR.vip BUT if you just wait for the 100posts/60day you only pay $97 one time for Jr.vip but you wont have a donor status or beable to have a sig? Or does that payment cover Donor and VIP then?

    There are 2 paid membership levels: Premium (pink) and Jr.Vip (blue).

    People usually call the Premium (pink) level "Donor". Both levels though get the "Donor" mark.

    Premium membership is for those you want to have some privileges immediately (e.g. links on their sig space). Jr.Vip members get more privileges but there are more requirements as well (posts & account longevity). Price is the same in both cases.

    Premium members do not get "upgraded" to Jr.Vip members.

    Yes, you would need to pay $97 again to be upgraded to the JR. VIP membership level.

    The advantage of getting Premium (DONOR) membership is that you can have
    a signature with your banner or text ad before you reach 100 posts/60 Days.
    It also allows you to post links and have a larger capacity in your PM inbox.
    However, as stated, you will still need to pay an extra $97 to be a Jr. VIP
    once you have reached the 100 posts/60 Days mark.
