Default Advertising options for the small website


I just wanted to get a feel for what advertising options there were for the small website with a limited budget.

Here's what I know of, and wondering if anyone could contribute:

Goto.com ($25 minimum)
LinkExchange Adshare ($100 minimum)

And, of course, banner exchanges, targeted newsgroup posts.... but I was looking more for "mass" advertising with a limited budget.

And no pyramid schemes or the like, please. http://www.very-cool-stuff.com/ubb/wink.gif

Clicktrade $100 min for pay-per-click

Clickbank let's you setup an affiliate program (pay-per-sale) if you have a product (which could be online or a download, but has to be something you charge for, and hopefully people pay for). I think the setup is now $40. They then take a percent of each sale (10% + $0.50 per sale). I use them for my software.

I'm careful to give one size fits all generic advise. If you could give a brief description of the goal of your web site, and the type of person you are trying to reach, that would get us starting in helping you.

yup--The one size fits all approach makes you feel real good until you discover that it works only for a week or so:>

I would solicite applications at the big webmaster bulletin board sites and perhaps through an opt-in mailing list to webmasters.

But a larger database and people with a stake in gettingthe word out cause it makes them look good would IMP be your best advertising strategy.

Thanks for the reply... I actually wasn't asking for Weeno specifically - but the response is appreciated.

I'd already implemented your suggestion to a degree ( http://www.weeno.com/Pages/promote.shtml ) but haven't been very proactive about contacting webmasters.

Perhaps when I have some time.
