So let’s start. Here are the tried and tested methods of how to make money from banner advertisements.
First of all create an “Advertise Here” page Advertise Here page on your blog/website to inform potential advertisers about the advertising opportunities. You need to convince potential advertisers why they should advertise their products and services on your blog.
You should share website traffic metrics like monthly unique visitors, page views, bounce rate, percentage of traffic stream coming from various demographics etc. Apart from this, you should share your website latest page rank, Alexa Rank, RSS and Email subscribers, Twitter followers count and Facebook Fans count etc on advertising page on your blog.
You need to share most of advertising options including banner ads that you are accepting on your blog though this page like banner ads format, their respective locations, availability of ad slots, monthly pricing for each ad unit. If you are accepting banner ads on trial basis like one week to give advertisers a chance to get a feeling of your blog traffic, you should mention that on advertising page.
Most importantly you need to share how you will be accepting money like via Paypal or though credit cards etc. You should also share how advertisers can contact you by sharing your email id or by adding a contact form on advertising page. If your blog has been covered on top blogs and websites in your niche or in general, you should share the links on the “advertise here” page. From time to time, you should write special articles and blog posts for the promotion of advertising page on your blog.
Once you have included the above, you need to promote this page. You can promote this page by adding a link for it on prominent places on your blog where it gets maximum exposure. I would recommend adding a link for advertise page in your blog header section and sidebars to send maximum clicks to this page. The best thing about direct advertising is that you can set your own price and all money you make though this method is yours.
If you are selling banner ads though a network, you need to give 25% type of your earnings to those networks. So you can keep all your earnings with you by selling banner ads though advertising page on your blog.
Keep the advertisers updated by letting them know sold banner subscription, number of page views and clicks that generated for each banner ad on monthly basis type etc.
The only disadvantage is you need to manage this properly unless you are making enough t and can outsource this process.
