    Hey all,
    I run a small site based in the UK, and whilst I make a handful of sales through the Amazon Associates program each month, I would like to make a little more cash to help with the costs of the site (offline materials, business cards, server and everything else!)

    My question is this. For the UK webmaster, how do you go about selling advertising directly? Where do you start? How do you approach potential advertisers after you've found them?

    Also, how is invoicing handled? Should I add VAT or register for VAT?

    I know (or I think I know) quite a bit about the affiliate side of things and CPC,CPM,CPA etc, but when it comes to selling advertising for myself, I'm way over my head, even though I think it would be the way to make a half-decent amount of money.

    If anyone could point me in the direction of a site with some decent information on the subject (with a UK tilt), or could help me out directly, I would be MOST appreciative.

    I'm beginning to think that there is a secret society or something... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you all in advance,

    No idea about the advertising, but on the VAT question - the rules are here and you add VAT to your sales invoices if your business is registered:

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> I'm beginning to think that there is a secret society or something <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> SHH!! Don't tell anybody but why would you want to register for VAT?
    I don't think you will fetch in the kind of money required to have to register 55000.00pounds (no pound sign)
    The only thing I can see would benefit you is if you plan on getting a new high priced computer then you could claim the VAT back if you are registered.
    Don't forget if you register 17% (I think) will have to go on top of your prices, will people pay that much?

    Travel safe
