Ridiculous offer of the month

30 Jul

I’m not sure if I’m going to get a more ridiculous offer this month, but $10 for ~10,000 organically-driven, targeted views sounds pretty ridiculous to me. And that’s not taking into account growth over the coming months…

Travel bloggers, let’s not race each other into poverty. Turn down stupid offers (and yes, $1 for ~1,000 views is bad; hell, $2 for ~1,000 views is as low as I’d be interested in going).

Hi x,

I’m afraid advertising at this price isn’t really the style of thing we’re interested in.

When you have a budget of $25+ a month, let me know and we can discuss advertising on some of my other sites. If you have a budget of $80+/month we can talk about http://indietravelpodcast.com.

Thanks,
Craig Martin
