I am looking to monetize my WP self-hosted site with custom banner/sidebar ads. (Not google ads) Ideally it would work out to be one of a dozen or so ads that appear randomly on every page/post refresh. I'd like something with little to no coding involved. What are the best plugins?

I hear that creators of very popular YouTube videos get paid for advertising. Normally they would welcome this, but I'm curious about what options a person has for keeping ads off their YouTube video, especially in the case where the video has been viewed very many times. Is it possible to keep ads off such a video altogether? And what would an effort to minimize advertising do to a video creator's ability to earn money (from YouTube) by posting videos on YouTube? (I imagine it would destroy it, but I don't know for sure.)

I'm looking for mission statements from 90's advertising agencies. Specifically, super "edgy" ad agencies that targeted the Gen-X demographic. The more over the top and "extreme" the better.
Worst-case scenario, I'd love to know where to start looking for them myself.

I received an email the other day from someone who claims they have a client who wants to advertise on my blog, which I only started a couple of months ago. I can't tell if it's legit, and I'm wondering how best to find out. I don't have any advertising on my blog, nor do I have any mentions of seeking advertisers. [more inside]

TheGlitz&GlamourOfHollywoodFILTER: I’m part of a small start-up that films celebrity interviews and slaps sponsor’s logos on them. Well, in theory, anyway. Up till now, we haven’t had any sponsors. Now we’ve finally gotten our foot wedged into an advertiser’s door, but we don’t know how much to charge! [more inside]

I run a regional music calendar/forum/photo gallery site that works mostly with punk, metal, and indie type bands in Chattanooga, TN. I know my audience really well and evidently Adsense does not and I have the dismal click-through rate to prove it. so why can't I just contact labels, artists, distros, etc. that I know my visitors are interested in directly and work something out?

I recently put Adbrite
on my blog. But no advertisers have signed up in one month.
I reduced the price every week for a text ad from $30 to $10 per week now for a good location in the sidebar. For 2000+ pageviews per day, is it too much to ask for?
Many sites with lesser page views and higher rates are full of Adrite advertisers. What is the secret of making money with Adbrite?

If I suddenly posted something on my website that I knew would get a ton of traffic, what would be the best way to, literally, capitalize on that traffic? If lightning struck, who would I call/partner with to make sure I got the maximum $$ possible out of all those eyeballs? Assume "selling out to the Man" would not be a concern, and further assume I would have very little time to arrange whatever the answer is. Also, assume the new higher traffic would be short-lived, a few weeks at most.

Hopefully this hasn't been asked yet... my Google toolbar is seemingly less able to block popups like it did before. This is happening at home and work. What's the reason and what's a more efficient blocker? Is this happening to anyone else?

In the U.S., some televised prescription drug ads tell you exactly what the drug is for. Others only allude cryptically to the drug's function. Still others just show a middle-aged, sweater-clad couple enjoying a sunset on a beach. Or Mike Ditka. Why?

Faux homemade posters asking "Where is my Garden Gnome" (with the URL of this site
) have been popping all over my neighborhood in nyc. On the poster (visible here
, pdf) is a toll free number
with a funny "homespun" message. This definitely has the feel of some guerrilla marketing campaign. (Who would pay for all those toll free calls...) Or is it some new hoax art project? An (inefficient) email harvester (see the disclaimer on the contact page...)? What? Anyone have any idea? (btw: there was an Oct 28th MeFi FPP
about gnomes, but the FPP link is dead... was this related?)
