I'd like to start putting ads on my site but I'm quite fussy about the way things look so I'd like to have attractive adverts that work as a feature of the website as opposed to the nasty garish ones you occasionally see out there.
BuySellAds.com do what I'm looking for. They don't accept your site unless it gets more than 100,000 hits per month so I can't use them. The ads on http://net.tutsplus.com/ are the sort of thing I'm looking to include in my site.
What are my options here? Which companies offer this kind of service?
I would use AdSense but I don't like the look of the text ads, in-fact I know that I don't even read them if I see them. I do however spend a lot of my time looking at, and clicking on, the attractive image based ads you see on sites like smashing mag and freelance switch
