How to Create an Advertise With Us Form

by Shahzad Saeed on Sep 14, 2017

Looking to sell ads directly to your sponsors, but not sure how to get started? You can start selling direct ads by creating an Advertise With Us form on your site, and encourage sponsors to submit it with their requirement. In this article, we’ll show you the best way to create an Advertise With Us form on your site.

Why Sell Direct Ads?

Before we dive into creating an Advertise With Us form on your site, it’s worth taking a moment to understand why selling direct ads is one of the best ways to make money online.

  • You can keep the full ad revenue without sharing it with any third-party ad networks.
  • You get the full control over ad pricing.
  • You can communicate with potential sponsors of your site, and even grow an email list of sponsors.
  • You can negotiate the prices. For example, you can offer an exclusive discount for a long-term sponsorship.
  • And much more…

Why Create an Advertise With Us Form?

Before you can start selling ads directly to sponsors, you need to have an Advertise With Us form created on your site. You can either publish the form on an advertise page or create a multipurpose form on your contact page with smart conditional logic.

A few benefits of having an Advertise With Us form are:

  • Offer an easy way for potential sponsors to inquire about purchasing ads.
  • Connect the form with a Sponsors Only email list, and build a long lasting connection with them.
  • Negotiate the prices and discuss new possibilities for site monetization.

The Benefits of Having an Advertise Page

While you can communicate with your sponsors through a typical contact form on your contact page, having a dedicated Advertise page provides you with a lot of benefits.

With an Advertise page, you can reveal the traffic details and demographics information about your audience. This way you can show your potential sponsors whether your site is a right fit for their needs, and give a clue on what they can expect by running ads on your site.

If you want, you can show the pricing of different ad slots on your site, and also give them tips on what kind of information they should ask for in the form.

Build a Sponsors Only Email List

Do you want to build a long-lasting relationship with your sponsors? You can build a Sponsors Only email list by adding a checkbox to your form so they can easily subscribe to your list by checking the box without submitting the details again.
