Show Me The Money

I regularly get pitches like this. Are ad network sales people all incompetent? I'm not that excited about adding more and exciting ads to the site, though I would if they were lucrative and not very annoying.

(Yes I know the occasional autoplay ad is popping up. They aren't supposed to. They're violating the terms of service. I changed some settings which hopefully should at least reduce the probability of it happening, but as it isn't supposed to happen anyway...)

But, seriously, ad networks sales people. Here's how to pitch me:
Dear sir,

We would like to run ads on your site. The ads will look like this: [ ]. You will have the ability to block ads you do not think are appropriate for your site. We will guarantee you at least $X per impression.


Mr. Ad Network Sales Guy.
