Blankspace.co.uk has developed a unique trading platform aimed exclusively at buyers and sellers of online advertising space.

Operating along similar lines to the internationally acclaimed eBay, it allows media owners to sell web advertising space by auction or buy it now prices. It provides a boost to owners of websites forced to sell space through syndicates or by banner swapping, by increasing the value of their space and ultimately delivering greater profit.

"Lots of sites aren't big enough to interest the big advertisers and have limited options for selling ad space; ultimately they get a very low rate for their traffic. We hope to enable them to increase the value of their space and boost revenue." Nick York – Blankspace MD

The site is ideally suited to small niche sites, sites selling surplus space in a hurry or sites selling premium “one-off” slots, you decide the price and wait for new customers to buy or bid!

Blankspace are currently building a database of users and are actively seeking out new partners, with a view to promoting the site heavily in the next few months.
