I have a news site on some specific niche that is around 8 months old and has around 300k monthly page views 40% of them are from US and rest are mixed. And today I have been contacted by a big marketplace site related to my niche. They are interested in sponsoring an article on my site.
But I have no idea how much money should I charge them for that article.
As I didn't buy any backlinks my DA is currently 24, and DR is around 12.
Will appreciate any kind of advice!

300k pageviews in 8 months? Kudos!

Very nice traffic but SEO stats seem low. How many unique referring domains do you have?

I would pay $150-200 for this np.

You set your internal pricing. Lets say $150-$300.

Now ask them how much are they going to pay.

If you get more than $300, accept it.

If you get $150-$300, try to negotiate lil bit higher.

If you get less than $150, try to negotiate from $150+.

You have nothing to lose.

Let them first show their budget.

You can charge $160 - $280. Because most of the clients will try to negotiate it. So, it's better you can finalize it on $160.

No less then $450, you got the traffic to back it up with, and demand an article of 2500 words minimum, provided by them.

Don´t work for free .. =)
