Get more quality views with Blogads video ads

Friday, May 20th, 2011

It’s no secret. As Digiday’s Mike Shields points out, this is a boomtime for video ads:

Here’s another indicator that the online video ad market is surging: twice as many video ads were served in the first quarter compared to the same period in 2010.

With our DIY system, you can add video to any Blogad unit by dropping a YouTube or Vimeo URL into our form.

That’s it.

You don’t have to deal with rich media costs, and there isn’t any more production work to do. And unlike other video ads, Blogads can boost your video count.

ClickZ calls the 2012 presidential race the “Video Election,” saying video “is poised to have a greater impact on the 2012 Presidential race than any election before it.”

One political advocacy group bought Blogads on 50 LBAN blogs and received over 3200 new views for their YouTube video.

Video advertising is red hot, so strike now and put your video in front of the influential blog readers of over 3500 blogs.

PETA’s tweetable ad generates 4,636 tweets

We recently rolled out a “Tweet this” button for ads, allowing advertisers to recommend a Twitter update directly from an ad.

Animal rights group PETA was one of the first advertisers to use the tweetable Blogads, and the results have been phenomenal.

Multiple iterations of their ad ran across 59 blogs. In all, the ads generated 4,636 tweets and 10s of thousands of clicks.

This is just the latest innovation to our custom units, and it’s proving to be a big win for advertisers who are looking to spark their own Twitter trend.

Twitter ads for VZW yield paltry RTs?

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Verizon paid to put its tweets atop the “2011” trend today.

As you can see below, after being up for as much as 14 hours, those promoted tweets (three versions in total as far as I can tell) only got retweeted ~90 times. That’s not a lot of RTs for $100k, right?
