Paid Ads (Powerful Ad Rotation System)

"Done For You" Ad Rotation
Sell Any Ad Spot

What is it?

Discover the most effective way to maximize your ad revenue and rotate ads without the hassle...

If you want your forum to thrive and stay online, you've got to monetize it.

I didn't make the rules. That's just how it is.

Ads keep your forum running and give you a sweet extra source of income.

But are you actually taking full advantage of your ads?

How much ad revenue are you losing each day because you don't have an easy way to sell or rotate ad spots?

Sure, you might have google ads... but do you how much money you're still leaving on the table?

Imagine if buyers could pick and choose exactly when and where to show their ads. And if you were able to set dynamic prices calculated by a number of factors such as ad position, location, duration, page type, page traffic and more.

Better yet, what if you could combine google ads with user paid ads?

Yeah... I know what you're thinking.

And you're right. $$$

If you don't want to get the most revenue from your ads, you might as well close this page. This add-on is probably not for you.

Here's the BIG secret, not all buyers want to buy a 7, 15, or 30-day ad subscription... in fact, most don't.

They rather buy ads based on their specific needs. I mean, who wouldn't? It's human nature.

If you don't offer what they want, they won't buy from you.

You're currently losing so many potential buyers that are looking for something you don't offer and you don't even know it!

How much happier (and more willing) to buy ads from you would they be if they had this freedom?

Why not give it to them and stop losing the money they're ready to pay you?

Do certain areas of your forum get more traffic?
You shouldn't have to settle for the same price on every ad.
There's no doubt that some ads should cost more than others.
It's about time you get paid for what they're actually worth. Your pockets will thank you.

Introducing "Paid Ads"
Originally built as a custom vBulletin add-on for EpicNPC back in 2016, the new Paid Ads has been rebuilt from scratch and improved for XenForo 2!

We had originally only used Google Adsense for banner ads on our site. When we received requests for ads, we always had to sell them site-wide which was expensive. This addon allowed us to sell banner ads in each individual forum, greatly reducing the cost for advertisers. It was cheaper for advertisers to buy ads, so they bought more often. Not only were the ads more targeted, but they help us increase our banner ad revenue by 50%. The system is automated, so users can purchase the ad space on their own, so it's less work for us too. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to increase their ad revenue.

In short, Paid Ads gives you the price control you need to maximize ad revenue and gives your buyers the freedom they need to buy ads from you.

  • Buyers want rotations to be more fair and equally divided. In the first version, we realized that simply randomizing rotations doesn't accurately divide them, therefore showing some ads a lot more than others. That's why the current algorithm ensures the ads in rotation are shown as evenly as possible, giving a fair opportunity for each advertiser and keeping them happy to continue buying.

We've been using this on our VB4 site and are currently migrating to XF2 where we will also be using this.

We had originally only used Google Adsense for banner ads on our site. When we received requests for ads, we always had to sell them site-wide ads which was expensive. This addon allowed us to sell banner ads in each individual forum, greatly reducing the cost for advertisers. Since it was cheaper for advertisers to buy ads, they bought more often. The ads were also more targeted so advertisers got better click through rates.

Since using the system it helped us increase our banner ad revenue by 50%. The system is automated, so users can purchase the ad space on their own making it less work for us.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking to increase their ad revenue.
