    I just received an email from a person within my niche that advertises on a few other niche related sites like mine.

    They want to advertise on my site, while I did plan on getting something up for people who do want to advertise, I have not had a chance to, and really do not know where to begin

    Im wondering how much I should charge

    currently this site is receiving around 3,000-5,000 Unique visitors per day and around 200,000 page views per month.

    How much do you currently make? Work out what the space is worth to you then double it. That's roughly what I would charge- be selfish rather than catering to your advertiser.

    If they're not interested they're not interested.

    Try to find out how much profit they'd make for the stuff they sell. Then make an estimate of how many people you expect to buy each day. And charge 10% of what profit they'd make if 5% of your visitors purchased.

    Not saying you have to use those exact numbers but you'll want a formula like that so you can justify a high price to the advertiser.

    You can get about 200,000 impressions per month on facebook for less than £100.

    Currently I make about 3000 per month on this site. The ad space where it would be put in is an undeveloped section that I never got around to adding stuff to so im really not sure what it would be worth.

    Is like 200 too much or little for a little square?

    $250 per month is too much mate..

    if you search the "make money online" keywords in google.. the #2 website 101ways charge only
    $300 to $400 USD per month for a small banner like 300x250 or 250x250 banner which has receive
    more than 8000+ visitors per day and 22,000+ page views per day.

    You only get 3,000 Unique visitors per day and around 200,000 page views per month..
    the best choice is charge it to $150 to $175 per month.

    If you observe your site has receive more than 5,000 visitors per day... you may increase your prize for advertising

    As the page views are good,You can get from 100-150$ and give only four slots,as this gives you an idea about the advertisers mind.And they will be your returning customers.

    Personally, I would jump onto
    HTML:
    Buysellads.com
    and see what others at with a similar traffic rank are able to sell theirs at. This will give you a good idea of what people are willing to pay.

    You should charge 100~150$ per month.I think it will be good. And what is your earning source ($3000) per month... CPA,Adsense or other ?

    I hope the company you are talking about is NOT Parismma. It is a big scam.
