How do you classify your ad inventory? (e.g. premium, ordinary, remnant) What portion of ad inventory is sold (yearly average, high season ad sales/low season ad sales)? Ad Inventory, Rate Card, Ad Specification For Discussion
  • 7. Rate Card - you need to tell your client what they are getting and how much it will cost and present that information in an easy-to-use and attractive way. Ad Inventory, Rate Card, Ad Specification Components:  Description of your website - what makes your website unique?  Audience description – a typical demographic profile of your reader?  Statistics and Rankings – how much traffic?  Ad Specification (standard, non-standard ad types, dimensions, file size, price, volume discount, ad restrictions, etc.)  Contact information

  • 10. Cost per time vs Cost per thousand  Collect rate cards from your competitors to determine their CPM rate on your market.  Decide what sizes of banners you will support, make sure, you are not going to choose sizes that are not common and used in your market.  Set your ad rates based on whether you want your CPM higher, lower or the same as your local competitors have got. (If your readership is similar to your main competitors, you may have to set your CPM lower.)  Meet with your the most valued existing advertisers to discuss the change of pricing model, get their feedback on all aspects of online advertising.  Contact your recent advertisers, send them the new rate card and offer a meeting in order to explain them all the advantages of your new ad platform, cost savings and targeting option they can start to use.
  • 11. Cost per time vs Cost per thousand Example: Banner 770x90 px. costs 20.000 RUB/month. The banner generates 100.000 impressions a month, what would be a CPM price? Cost of Campaign: 20.000 Impressions: 100.000 CPM=? RUB If traffic to this website increases to 200.000 impressions a month, what will be CPM price? Cost of Campaign: 20.000 Impressions: 200.000 CPM=? RUB
