    Twitter Advertising on Site

    $25 Basic Advertising; indefinite period

    There are a number of cost effective ways to take up advertising on my site.

    I do not support link exchanges. However, I do provide free third-party links to sites which link and send traffic to my site (as measured by Google Analytics); 25 free links are available but they can't be bought nor exchanged. Sites are ranked in order of traffic received; Cobrasmarketview has top spot having sent to me a staggering 14,712 visitors since March 2008. Finviz, TickerSense, The Kirk Report and TraderMike round out the top 5.

    The cheapest is to buy a scratchback link for $25. I give these links prominent placing just right of my main content on the initial page load. Just 5 links are available for purchase. To give an example of its affordability and return, on June 10th 2009 I took a screengrab of the number of clicks the no.1 spot received over the previous day. As the snapshot shows, 'Big Moving Stock', chalked up 9 click throughs

    The duration at which these links remain active depends on the frequency at which they are purchased. For example, the no. 1 spot stayed in place for just over a month while the no. 5 slot ('day trades and swing'), which got 4 clicks yesterday, has been attracting traffic for 6 months. All funds collected from Scratchback purchases are channelled through KIVA.org. Your support has helped sponsor 130 projects as of September 2009.

    To put the CPC of Scratchback in perspective, assuming a 6-month lifespan of a link, costs are as follows:

    1 click a week: $0.95
    5 clicks a week: $0.19
    7 clicks a week: $0.14
    10 clicks a week: $0.10
    20 clicks a week: $0.05

    On average, expect the CPC to fall into the $0.10-0.20 range over the lifespan of your link.

    Twitter advertising at $100-$350 per month; flexible content

    The second option is a new feature I am trying which allows financial service companies, newsletter providers or other bloggers run their Twitter feeds on this site. This offers a great deal of flexibility to the acquirer; for example, you could put a link to a subscriber-only daily stock report, a link to a new service, a PR news release or take advantage of Super Chirp to post trade signals.

    I had planned to allow the Flash widget from Twitter as an embed. But for all its gloss it's donkey slow (REAL slow....) so instead I have opted for the Java FriendFeed widget as the alternative.

    The styling of the widget will be as for my current Friendfeed with the most recent link displayed.

    Scale: 200 x 200
    No of posts displayed: 1
    Requirements: FriendFeed is preferred although alternatives will be considered as long as they don't slow the page load.

    Once the widget is created it should be sent to me by email for approval.

    Adult sites will not be accepted and there is to be no profanity.

    The four rates based on location in the right-hand margin are as follows:

    $350 / month
    $250 / month
    $200 / month
    $100 / month

    These rates will be subject to review on January 1st of each year.

    Rates to be paid by Paypal as a monthly subscription. I will offer a 10% discount on 6-month prepurchase or 20% discount on the full year for all four options.

    Traditional Banner advertising at $300-500 per month.

    I am looking at CPC options but if I was to go down this road there would still be a nominal monthly charge to book the space (thinking $50/month for leaderboard and $20/month for the post banner). There would also be a minimum quarterly return required to keep the ads listed (if the ads aren't generating revenue from click throughs it's not benefiting me or the advertisier). For now, the basic rates are:

    Leaderboard 728 x 90 (GIF) positioned beneath links at $500 per month

    Banner 468 x 60 (GIF) located at bottom of each post at $200 per month
