I run a popular MMORPG site – https://www.mmomeltingpot.com. We get about 500k page views a month, 250-300k unique visitors, about 50% from the US, 25% from the UK, Canada and the Scandinavian countries, then the rest from other locations.
Of late, I’ve been noticing a lot of affiliate banners popping up in our Adsense ad boxes (it’s monetised with Adsense). And so, I thought – if affiliates are buying these spaces, why not cut out the middle-man and sell direct?
So – would anyone be interested in doing a media buy on MMO Melting Pot, and if so, what sort of figures would you be willing to spend for that traffic? Obviously, I’m wanting to improve on my Adsense figures by quite a bit (to account for the additional work of direct ad sales), so I’m curious to see if we can find a match here.
Current ad boxes are a leaderboard floated to the bottom of the screen (highest CTR), a right-aligned 300×250 at the top of articles and another leaderboard at the bottom of articles, but I’m open to suggestions and discussion on those.
PM me or reply below if that seems interesting! Also, even if you’re not interested right now, I’d be curious to hear from experienced media buyers how much they’d usually pay for this sort of traffic.
(BTW – why don’t I run affiliate offers on it myself? I do, sometimes. But at the moment I’m very busy launching a new site and don’t have time to do the testing fandango – hence low-maintainance income good.)
