PopIn (layer) ads: A good option: Cheap and effective. PopIn ads receive a click trough rate of 1.0% - 2.0% (some popin layer ads receive a CTR of up to 5%).

And one last thing: The industry visitor to customer conversion rate is about 1.0% - 2.0% only if everything else – web design, sales copy, product, prices, etc – is perfect!
