Ad Serving Companies For Blogs

Ad serving displays web ads on other websites. These ads are no longer simple banner ads, but can be very appealing and interactive with video, games and audio. Online ad serving catches the valuable attention of customers while enabling advertisers to instantly track the effectiveness of the ads. No wonder then that ad serving and blogs have found a way to work together.

The Logic of Ad Serving

Both the advertiser and the website benefit from ads. The advantage to the marketer is being able to hit the right person at the right time with the right message. Ad serving provides software to websites and advertisers to let them choose the ads, display them, count them and determine for themselves which ones will make more money for the website.

An ad server decides which ad to display particularly if the site has several different advertisers. It will choose the ad that is more likely to result in a sale based for example on a web user’s previous usage. The ad aims to entice the user to click on the ad and buy the advertised product.

Ad serving companies can help through online ads that are placed through careful planning with the objective of generating impressive results. They are equipped to identify the best online advertising opportunities for a website. They can also develop effective online ads and integrate them to an existing brand or campaign while negotiating the best rates and simultaneously deliver multiple messages to multiple target audiences. The ROI is determined for the advertisers through the direct tracking of results in real time. Online advertising is recognized as an important medium which can no longer be excluded from a company’s marketing efforts.

There are basically two sides to ad serving – facilitation of all ad communications and trafficking. It is typical to see companies operate through multi-tasking even at this aspect. This means that publishers assign both works to one employee that is tasked to serve client needs while trying to keep up with the very critical responsibility of trafficking. This scenario usually results to loss of control, trafficking error, workflow inefficiency or inconsistency, poor customer management and very unhappy clients.

Any advertiser would benefit in having predictability and responsiveness from its ad serving company. This equates to predictability in campaign delivery and error-free trafficking. The assurance that all possible means are to be exhausted to help the advertisers’ client should also exist.

The delivery of these expectations would require multiple skills from the ad serving provider. It would need both technical and emotional intelligence to deliver the service. Responsibilities falling under technical intelligence include testing creative in standard or rich media formats, tracking creative into the ad server, understanding the implementation of website structure as well as optimizing and revising existing ad campaigns for customers. Emotional intelligence includes keen interaction skills as well as the ability to organize, prioritize and multi-task.

Successful ad operation forms the backbone of impressive customer service. It can coordinate people, process and technology to make publishers more competitive for income generation and client satisfaction. Maximizing and maintaining relationships should always come together with the focus on trafficking ads.

Ad Serving and Blogs

What does one expect to accomplish in a partnership between a leading content management and corporate blogging solution provider and a company that offers a set of tools to create, promote, analyze and optimize advertising in weblogs and content feeds? The first company is an innovator in corporate weblog market while the other is an ad serving company. A beneficial relationship seems to have been discovered between blogs and ad serving.

An ad serving company can use its full-featured web, blog and feed advertising server to efficiently manage, serve and report on ads in feeds while making it possible for publishers to easily monetize their syndicated content. This will facilitate integrated ad serving capabilities into a site’s content management and blogging platform. This can easily provide several unique features to customers such as the ability to create, manage and track rich advertising campaign in websites, blog communities and RSS feeds as well as self-service ad purchasing and flexible revenue models that can extend options to run ads out to include individual blogs.

The partnership brings a valuable ad serving and management module to content management and branded blogging platform. The integration of a site’s blogging platform to an ad serving company’s blog and RSS ad serving network amounts to being able to run targeted ads to communities which is equivalent to revenue for companies and bloggers. The resulting campaign management and reporting simplifies the process of serving and tracking web and RSS ads. It also provides clients with several revenue opportunities. This clearly enables customers to benefit from the power of weblog and RSS advertising as it provides more niche content, highly targeted blogs and a whole range of advertising possibilities.

Emerging advertising trends point towards more sophisticated and trend-setting media sources such as photocasts, podcasts, RSS feeds and blog sites. Content providers should be quick to adopt these concepts if they want to boost their ability to support the unique alternatives presented to customers. A result of a recent survey shows that a large percentage of marketers surveyed have immediate plans to spend on these new marketing techniques. It also shows that creation of blog sites lead among the possible choices together with RSS feeds and video ads.

The users’ focus shift for informational resources to the Internet has prompted companies to recognize the changing dynamics and led them to respond accordingly through a more varied ad campaign approach. A content provider’s experience of higher online usage, participation and loyalty increase the need to deliver more relevant customer advertising. Advertisers are able to achieve higher ROI from ad placement when the right users are identified and targeted. The publisher can demand higher rates from advertisers when a relevant online target is found.

Many organizations might soon find themselves with an outdated ad server due to the rapid growth rates of emerging media sites. This is why it is important for anyone to have a scalable and reliable management solution to counter the problem. It is likewise necessary to ensure that ad servers allow for integration with any content delivery requirements or platforms that may be required in the future.
