Well… banner adds are really tough to make money from nowadays.
Think like this… no one pays per view anymore… it’s all, if someone clicks and then buys you get a percentage. And maybe 1 in 1000 people click and then 1 out of a 100 of those buy. Is that really worth the trouble??? If you want to try it though go to www.cj.com (commision junction) join them and you can get all sorts of banners from allied companies. I tried them for 6 months… good service but I didn’t make a penny.
Right now I’m trying something new for the http://alienhelpdesk.com site. www.cafepress.com has a real neat service. Basicly you give them a couple jpgs and tell them on what T’shirt/mug/bag whatever to print it, then you set the price (something above base price) they print/sell/ship it for you and you get the profit. There’s a 15 day free trial there after which it costs $5 to run a shop at their place…
I haven’t sold any as yet, but am already getting like 300% more clicks on my own adds than on cj.com’s before, so I’m hopefull. It’s prolly worth a look for you too.
