4 Tips to Quickly Sell Ad Spaces

1. Sell little more than normal ad space!

There are so many blogs and websites. Each one sells ad space. The question that one needs to keep in mind is that what more can you offer in order to ensure that the offered ad sense actually sells quickly and fast.

The best way to ensure that your deal offers a little more that simple and plain ad sense is to ensure that you offer some special features to the people who show interest in buying your ad space.  Like one deal you can offer can be extended to the first five people who come to sign up a deal for ad space with you. These lucky 5 will get a premium website template along with the ad space. This would attract advertisers as they would like to grab the opportunity to benefit from 2 deals at the price of one.

This is a great technique for those who are new in this field. During the initial days, not many people would actually want to buy your ad space. This technique will help you then. Try this and do let me know in comments! :D

2. Run a Contest:

It’s easy! In order to attract more and more people to buy your ad space you can run a tempting contest. This contest would entail that on purchase of a premium ad space one would get a gift or raffle entry for the monthly lucky draw. The gift can be some extra features or simple ad space.

You can also tempt the buyers by offering them personal items like an iPad  and so on.

3. Discounts for ad Space:

Believe it or not. This works really great. ;)

All you have to do is by offer special discounts to your advertisers. Many a time, when you are suffering from severe lack of advertisers in this case, it makes absolute sense to offer discounts to people buying ad space. Not only would they be able to buy the ad space at a cheaper rate but might also get tempted to buy extra ad space.

  1. Giving discounts on long term advertisement contract is a very nice idea to gain more revenue. It is better to sell ad spaces at discounted prices rather than waiting for a customer ready to pay high tariffs. Nice tips really appreciated

    • Rajkumar Jonnala says:

      Thanks Usman for stopping by. I also prefer long term advertisers on my personal blogs, since these are the genuine buyers and are willing to pay good amounts for long term contracts. And moreover your ad space will get engaged for long term.

  2. thats great information, as a blogger you want to sell ad spaces for revenue so this can help.

    • Rajkumar Jonnala says:

      Thanks Fazal for appreciating my post. Earning is a main concern for every blogger. But we should always keep in mind that this should not distract our buyers and visitors as well. Happy blogging!

  3. Hi Rajkumar,

    We are trying to sell ad space, isn’t it? So in this context, what do you mean by organizing contests? We’ll hold some contest and offer ad space as prize?

    I think I should offer discounted Ad space for my guest bloggers. This way on one hand I’ll get more better guest posts and on other Ad space can be sold though a bit lower price. Hmm.. Like you idea. Thanks for the post.

    • Rajkumar Jonnala says:

      Hi Suresh Khanal,

      Organizing Contests and giving one ad space for free in prize is not at all a bad idea Suresh as this can help a blog to get so many unique visitors and so many great posts. Thanks any way for stopping by and appreciating the post.

      • Ok I Agree with Suresh Kanal. How this contests help to find advertisers. We can only give away some AD spaces to the winners.

        I’ve had a big experience with selling AD spaces is,

        Collect some list of advertisers from the ADs published on niche blogs and send them E mails (without spamming their inbox) will also work better.

        Also deep link building with particular ‘Advertise with us’ page will also work effectively. But we need to validate right price for AD spaces, so that we can get advertisers. For example if for 10K impressions, we can fix $10 instead of more than that will convert more advertisers.

        Thanks to the post.

      • Hey Rajkumar Jonnala,

        I agree with you. Having a contest done is like having a twist on an old idea that used to make a lot of money. It works because not many people do it and usually if you do the contest OK then you will most likely end up with an advertiser that will come back many times.

  29. Hamza Sheikh says:

    Running a contest is a cool idea, but at least not giving the ad-space in a contest unless you not become an authority. Giving out the ad space on discount is seems to be kinda showing you are running out of money? or your are standard-less.

    In my career with BSA, I have noticed many advertisers declined to advertise just because the ad-space price is too low. :)
