Communication mistakes when trying to sell text link ads

Most website owners really need to read a book or two about marketing/selling. Consider this conversation with a travel webmaster responding to my thread on Digital Point about advertising my travel writing contest:

What you think about that http://www.... Wait your answer.

It looks like a travel site. What kind of traffic do you get and where can I have my ad placed?

I am 65,505 on Alexa now

I need to know how many uniques/day you get and where my ads would be placed.

I send you PM before, cant understand why you not received. I have 150-200 unique day, PR 2,3,4,5 Pages, Alexa = 65000. Wait your answer

Note that I still don't know where my ad would be placed. The publisher has not given me one good reason to advertise with him. He doesn't mention good price, or anything else that would make him diffrerent from the 10,000,000 other low traffic travel web sites out there.

Anyway, if you have travel or writing related websites and can help me get the word out, do let me know. Just remember to tell me why I should spend my money advertising on your site...
