    Venturing into the buying ads for my branded site.. Can't find any legit/cost-effective places to advertise on outside of Google, Bing, etc. Most of these places just sell banner ad impressions, and they run hundreds of dollars per day. So are there any sites that list all the places to advertise on? (ie. companies that sell them for the website).. Or anyone have any ideas?

    Only place I've found so far: Sent me 300 visitors in 24 hours for $25, All US. Made 70% back via Adsense/Amazon. Trying to find more places to advertise like it. I won't say the niche, but honestly it's such a broad topic, so many profiles fit what I'm looking for..

    Started contacting 50+ forum owners for advertising rates, and most of them just want too much for what they offer.. So the return on those won't be enough for me. I'm not trying to make a profit for now, just promote the site.

    Ran an tiny Adwords campaign, fully optimized and that didn't work out well. 10K impressions for $100, about 75 clicks and made like 2% back on it. So trying to stay away from paid search engine traffic for now. All of those funds are going into SEO.

    Website is fully optimized, ad spots are in the perfect position. Just need places to advertise on now, while I work on the SEO.

    Looking at http://buysellads.com/ Lets say they deliver 10,000 impressions for $100. What's the typical CTR on those ads?

    I've never had a good CTR using BuySellAds personally, but that might just be me.

    Here is one I just heard of, literally today:
    http://www.adonion.com/

    I know others I'll post them later!

    You can try buysellads.com, though you'll receive the traffic they won't be targeted. If it's for adsense try ****** and other shorteners.
