I’ve had a chance to spend some time with AdBrite and I’m impressed with the opportunity for you, us, as marketers and publishers. Coincidentally, they are set up in the booth next to ours at SES so I’m sure I’ll get a chance to chat with them during the conference and may follow up with some thoughts, for now, give AdBrite a try:
- Easy City/State local targeting enabling national advertisers to target ads locally and local advertisers to reach relevant customers.
- Simple action/conversion tags allowing you to measure effectiveness end-to-end and optimize performance for a specific ad or placement.
- CPC based Text ads, CPM banner ads, and Interstitials to get you right in front of the audience while mitigating risk by paying for traffic or reach.
- Category, Demographic, and Keyword targeting.
- Option to control the advertising instead of being forced to run those in the ad network. You can opt to only allow banner ads giving your site the perception of a little more credibility.
- Enable local advertising
- Like an ad server, allow advertisers to buy media on your site alone
- Auction model in which ads are auto optimized to favor those that deliver the most revenue
- Back fill with another ad network! This alone is why you should use AdBrite on your site. Enter your AdSense code and eCPM and AdBrite will run Google ads when CPMs are not high enough to favor their own. You are ensured of making MORE money by only running AdBrite ads at rates higher than that which you already receive.
By the way, (and no, this isn’t the reason for this post) We’ve set them up on Zvents, allowing advertisers to buy locally targeted inventory on the network. Okay, maybe the reason for the post IS that I’m using it. None-the-less, check them out and give yourself 20 minutes to set them up in support of your site or as an advertiser, you can’t be disappointe
