    Really? Even for how little of traffic I'm getting?

    Yes, really. 4k visitors a month is a lot of eyeballs and they want this on your home page.

    Hmm, okay. Should I ask them if $150 per month is reasonable/fair, or should I just tell them that's how much I charge? Not to be rude or mean, but I'd like to hear it from a couple sources just to be sure. Thanks.

    I would just say that it's $150/month for front page ad spot. This is a business so you are not being rude/mean. They have to spend a ton more than that for radio/TV ads.

    Well I emailed them yesterday, so just waiting for a reply... Also, I've made a few conversions this month so far. Nothing too big, but it's a start. I started backlinking again since I have quite a few articles on page two of google. If I can get them to page one I think my traffic will see a dramatic increase.

    Tom -- I didn't realize you were responding to an email request. Please be aware that there are many companies sending out mass emails to site owners these days with no real intent. Don't be disappointed if you don't hear back. And be thrilled if you do!

    Yeah, I knew it could be spam when they first emailed, but it seemed somewhat legit, and that's why I replied. I won't be surprised if nothing happens, but yes I will be ecstatic if something works out.

    Maybe I should have explained a little about the person emailing me. Here's the first email I received:

    "Hello

    I represent a client that sells motorbike insurance and I am contacting you on their behalf to inquire about the type of online advertising opportunities that you offer. I am open to any possibilities, from text advertising and sponsored articles to banner advertising, or any others that you might want to suggest!

    If you are interested, please reply so we can discuss things further. My email address is emma@vectortrap.co.uk

    Regards
    Emma Paynter"

    So she works for VectorTrap... anyone heard or know if it? The last email she asked how much I charge for advertising, and then I replied.

    Well here's what she replied:
    "Tom

    Unfortunately I can't pay $150 a month for the link. I would probably be looking to pay $150 for the full 6 month period.

    Well, you'll have to make your own decision about it Tom, but I certainly wouldn't sell a link on the home page of any of my websites for that.

    That is pretty cheap. I would probably tell her to go pound sand.

    Alternatively, you could offer some sort of incentive based advertising. Take the $150, but for every XX clicks per month on their ad they have to pay an extra $XX.
