    I have a deal with a ad network that I get 0.25 for each banner click on my video website.
    As you might expect the CTR is fairly low. On average I get < 10 click with +2500 visitors/day.
    Any ideas how I can get more people to click? The solution may be blackhat, this is not Google Adsense :D:D

    The solution is to position the ads better on your site and above the fold.

    Yes, BHW is right place; I will suggest to you, you place your ads
    1.Ads between content.

    2.Use some keyword like, more information, click here, more, after keyword just place ads.

    3.Try to use adsense account, I know it's not adsense but that's best way to find targeted area.

    There are certain (premium) scripts that can force users to click ads without them knowing it but I don't think discussion is allowed here . How about video overlay or are you just embedding youtube vids?

    $0.25 cpc is pretty good - what kind of ads do they show?

    Targeted visitors and blending the ads are the best option to increase the number of clicks. :)

    IMO, you should pay more attention to the layout/design and positioning the elements of your web (such as: columns/rows, texts, images, colors and ads). Some say, content is the king. I say, layout is the queen :D

    So blend the king and the queen, you'll get an empire :D

    Show ad over video for 5 seconds or so and then you can let them play video (and then move ad to the right or somewhere).

    You can also try JWplayer which can play youtube videos. And they offer different type of video ads like overlay, pre and post video ads. I think it requires to purchase license of JWplayer to integrate their ads. You can enquire them.

    I suggest you increase traffic to your site through advertising and also join the networks and forums on this site and add your link to your comments and questions
    bottom line - the more traffic you get to your site, the bigger the chances are that people might actually click on your ad sense ads[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I would also suggest the positioning and the call to action within your ad.

    If you don't care why don't you just buy PTC traffic? At $.25 a click you'll still make out good....
