Here's the text of the e-mail:
Hello,In August, Interesting Money wrote about an advertising inquiry of his own, and his response to it. I tend to agree with his view on this subject. I'm not against monetizing Loonies And Sense, but the idea of an advertiser "submitting articles" does not sit well with me.
I’ve recently looked over your site and believe that your reader-base and visitors might be a possible advertising venue for us.
I am interested in traditional link advertising as well as using link “blurbs” on certain pages of your site, or on certain articles – perhaps even submitting articles. This includes but is not limited to purchasing a post also. We are open to any idea that would allow us to capture interested readers, but would prefer to avoid the traditional “Ads by Google” and “Sponsored Links” sections.
Please let me know if you’d be open to discussing advertising possibilities further.
Thanks in advance,
What do you think? Have you received this sort of request? How did you respond?
