I had a pleasant surprise today that I wasn't really prepared for. My website on online Math tutoring isn't new but I hardly get time to work on it, thanks to my engagement with an already existing customer base I acquired outside of SBI! To give you an idea, my daily average unique visitors is well below 50 and there's loads of keywords in my MKL I am yet to find time to write on.
Today, I received an email (not a form submission but an email to my personal Yahoo! id) that is supposedly written by a person from a website called AcademicHelp.net, who wants me to post their website link/reference/review on my website by means of a monetary deal. Basically he wants me to "engage in paid promotion" for their website and has asked me to write back with my "requirements and rates".
Although excited to get such an offer out of nowhere, the offer makes me feel a little skeptical. Wouldn't someone check out the popularity of a website before making such an offer? Further, how did this person come to know about my personal email id and tag it as the owner of my SBI website? Finally, if this were not to be a spam but a real opportunity indeed, can anyone guide me as to how much to ask for and what terms to propose?
