    As a webmaster and owner of a new site you are not only responsible for developing content. You also need to acquire quality and sticky consumers of your content. Some webmasters have been successful in getting new consumers of their content with little to no expense. However, most of us, will need some kind of advertising and marketing budget to obtain the needed readership. Do you think an advertising budget of $10,000 per year can rocket your website to the top and get a nice size user-ship of your site?

    I don't buy ads, nor do I really even need to.

    I used to have a budget of around $150.00 every 4-6 months. Which is helping little by little here at Referral Directory.
    Although $10,000 yearly for advertising will not only make your website grow but it will possibly give you millions of impressions, which will attract potential advertisers.

    Our office website used to have a budget of $200 a year and it gets good hits. But when that budget was scrapped - it's now a self-supporting site as far as advertising is concerned - the hits have slowed down. Even the forum is sometimes like a cemetery.

    You can't put any numbers for advertising budget without knowing the type of the site, the competition, the advertising method(s) or the goals of the said advertising. Some use few bucks a month, some use millions per month. This scale helps nobody trying to allocate their own budget.

    Advertising costs can vary a lot. If you are trying to run a get money rich quick scam, you could be paying thousands in promotion, whereas a niche blog could pay nothing and still receive a steady stream of visitors.

    I wouldn't really know a good budget since I don't buy ads that often (if I do I get a cheap one)...it seems a little much to me, but like I said I don't really know anything about budgets.

    Yeah I definitely don't spend that much on adds. I think I've maybe spent $60 on ads for my website, and I don't see myself buying anymore for quite awhile.

    Ads are a waste of money, I rather put the money towards people who would get the link in better places. Anyways, for my site its a low budget of 100 dollars.

    I think 10,000 would do the job. However, though, it is possible to screw up even something that good. In that case, I'd advise a good business plan before spending. For instance, just cause there is a lot of money for traffic, doesn't mean it will convert.
