We run a combination of ad purchases on our site – including call to action banners promoting our services, affiliate ads of companies we trust, and sponsored ads with companies who we’ve chosen to partner with. The different combinations of packages are quite complex, so we haven’t found an out-of-the-box solution to manage the site – that’s why we’ve been utilizing BuySellAds. They offer a marketplace for advertisers to find us as well as a variety of methods to sell advertising throughout the site.
Combined with Jetpack’s visibility option with widgets, placing relevant and dynamic calls-to-action or ads is very easy to accomplish with WordPress today. Your WordPress site may not offer external advertising or require the options that we do. In fact, you may just want to manage your own CTAs. AdPress is a WordPress plugin built specifically for this.
- Easy Setup – Create your campaign in few clicks with the AdPress Ad Designer. Specify how you Ad will display, the Call To Action Ad, the sale contract… Integrating your Ad Zone in your blog is quite simple. AdPress has widget, shortcode and function support.
