Thats it, its straight forward, no gimmicks.
Plan B mediaworks will seek advertisers based on a total accumulation of visitors and impressions based on all participating sites. Advertising will be sold on a per month bases, not by CPM.
Plan B Mediaworks will receive $1 per 1000 visits or buy on all booked ads. The rest of the revenue will be split across all sites based on visits per month. i.e. if there are 5 participating sites, 3 sites have 10k visitors per month and 2 sites have 50k per month. The ad will sell for $8 per 1000 visits (of which Plan B mediaworks receives $1). Since the Ad is booked monthly, the rate is based on 6 month review of browser based visits. In this case we estimate 130k visits per month and sell this particular ad for $1040 or $8 per 1000. The participating sites receive $7 per 1000. In this case the two sites with an estimated 50k per month received $350 while the sites with 10k per month received $70
