3 Mistakes to Avoid as a Publisher

Being a publisher requires making a lot of decisions along the way.

Designing your website, choosing a hosting company, choosing the right content and finding ways to drive traffic.

This and more, another very important field that has to be taken care of in a professional way is the monetization, meaning turning traffic into revenues.

Here as well, a lot of decisions have to be made – choosing a monetization partner, selecting the right formats, placing the tags and ads on your website, adjusting the trade-off between revenue making and user experience & more.

Being one of the most experienced and innovative ad networks, we have made a short review about the most common mistakes publishers tend to do while taking the above decisions, in order to help you as publisher to do it the right way

First mistake – choosing only by the revenues an ad network pays you

This is a tricky one. You usually get an offer from publisher managers working for different ad networks offering you to pay more than you are getting paid now.

This is an option – but remember:

Increasing your revenue but damaging your users experience with way too aggressive ads will cause your traffic to decrease over time.

Choose a well-known network which understands this tender balance between revenue making and user experience

Second Mistake – choosing an unknown ad network

Ad networks that are relatively small and unknown will do everything they can to “win” your traffic, including being too aggressive and promising you the moon and a few stars.
Here is what you should do:

  • Ask for websites examples which the ad network is working with.
    • If an ad network is working with big websites it means they can handle the traffic, pay well, and pay on time.

If they work with similar sites like yours means they have experience monetization your traffic and have proper advertisers for it, therefore the revenue will be higher and stable right from the start.

  • Search known forums for feedback. Those are good to get a glance.
    • keep in mind that forum users have their own perspective and sometimes have certain interest on placing a comment, so its a good first step but shouldn’t base the forums comments for your final decision whether to use an ad network or not.

Third mistake – Choosing an Ad Network that runs a single ad format

Choose an Ad-network that specializes in several ad formats
Focusing on one network that has multiple formats as a one-stop-shop will save you a lot of time, efforts plus it will boost your revenue.

An ad network that offers multiple formats is more likely to optimize between the formats to maximize both revenues and user experience.

This and more – you as a publisher will prefer dealing with one point of contact in regards to your monetization solutions both for support, payments and reporting

Get The Missing Piece For The Perfect Push Campaign

Do you know that feeling when you have finally found the one? That one top offer which you just know is going to convert?

You choose your creatives, set up a campaign, anxiously awaiting the moment of truth but then… nothing happens. 

Most affiliates would probably stop their campaign immediately, ditching the offer and on to the quest of finding something new, but what if we told you that there are quite a few things you can do?  

Our optimization team is happy to share with you some tips and tricks that can make a significant difference when running a push campaign on our platform!

How to set your daily budget

On Ad-Maven’s platform, you have the option to limit your daily campaign budget and to choose how you would like to spend it – evenly over 24 hours or ASAP.

Our recommendation is to set a daily budget that’s at least x5 more than your CPA goal or a minimum of $50 daily.

Setting a daily budget which is too low may significantly affect the amount of traffic you are getting and therefore your chances to get conversions.

Recommended Bid

Having an awesome offer and beautiful creatives won’t help you if you don’t have the right bid for it. Not only the GEO affects the bid you should set, but also the device, the OS, or every other specific targeting you choose. Don’t forget – you are competing with other advertisers for each impression, every impression you lose could have been your next conversion. 

At each point, you can use our recommended rate card or contact our account managers to get up-to-date bids.

Add our Postback link

Adding a postback will significantly help you optimize your campaigns. In addition, our account managers will be happy to guide you through the optimization process. If you have the will, we have the way!

Don’t have an account manager yet? If you spend over $200 daily, you’ll get a dedicated account manager from our team.

Bid adjustments by publisher feed

Last but not least, and probably the most important tip we can share.

In push campaigns, there is no connection between the user and the source. Therefore, instead of blacklisting/whitelisting sources and potentially losing great users, we allow you to set a different bid for each publisher feed – allowing you to optimize your campaign a lot more accurately and reaching a positive ROI faster.

You can read about how to adjust your bid here.

The All-New Game-Changing Interstitial 2.0

AdMaven has launched the all-new Interstitial banner, designed to act as the perfect monetization tool for all websites from every vertical.

The new Interstitial gives the publisher several key advantages over other ad formats and allows him to keep his users in a clean and unobtrusive environment.

  1. ADDITIONAL income – The Interstitial banner does not waste other advertising space on the site since it is located in the gap between 2 pages.
  2. Pleasant browsing experience – Due to its location, the Interstitial banner does not interfere with the site’s content and does not bother users while they are browsing.
  3. Easy skipping – Using the “Skip Ad” button keeps the user’s experience high, by easily closing the ad by choice, skipping automatically to the next page.
  4. Native content – The Interstitial banner presents Native content which has a higher CTR.
  5. Mobile friendly – At a time when over 65% of the traffic is mobile traffic, publishers need a mobile-friendly ad format that performs best in mobile web.
  6. Google compliant – To keep your site fully compliant with Google’s rules and regulations out Interstitial was built according to the “Better Ads Standards”

To implement the all-new Interstitial 2.0 contact your account manager or sign up HERE.

Supercharge your campaigns with AdMaven’s pop traffic

Full-screen ads that show on an entire new tab upon clicking an object on the site providing high user engagement and top revenue. Our pop ads deliver a graphical user interface display area, covering the full window, that suddenly appears in the foreground of the visual interface.

Full-screen ads are a powerful tool for any advertiser. By opening a new window, the promotional content is separate and independent from the domain or app which the user is browsing or using. This enables advertisers to clearly signpost adverts that are unmissable to the user.

AdMaven’s self-serve platform enables advertisers to create campaigns and get access to AdMaven’s entire inventory across multiple formats. We help advertisers monetize every single user and impression, globally and on every device, allowing us to generate over 5 Billion daily impressions worldwide!

While we have a wide range of advertising formats, pop traffic remains one of the most efficient ways to target a large number of people efficiently and effectively.

Benefits of pop campaigns include:

  • Unmissable Views: since ads open in a new window, your ads will always get the exposure they need – with high visibility and conversion.
  • Cost-Effective: for mass-scale campaigns, you will be able to achieve very low CPM rates to get your ads seen fast by a lot of people. Pop traffic remains one of our best performing formats for advertisers running large-scale campaigns.
  • Creative Freedom: since they open in a new tab, you don’t have to worry about creatives that contextually fit the site they originally generate from. In addition, the large space to display creatives will help your ads have more impact.

With pop traffic, you are in full control. The Cost Per View (CPV) models means that you’ll get the exposure you need. To calculate the CPM, simply multiply x1000 to easily calculate your campaign ROI.

If you have any questions about how AdMaven’s pop traffic can improve your campaigns ROI get in touch with our support team!

Staying On Top Of Your AdMaven Earnings & Choosing How To Get Paid

Getting paid as a publisher working with AdMaven has never been easier. 

We give our publishers the ability to choose their preferred payment method, with multiple alternatives including PayPal, Payoneer, bank wire transfer, Bitcoin, Paxum, WebMoney, and Epayments. 

Simply choose the desired payment method in your dashboard.

Which payment method is best for me?

Choosing the right payment method for you will mostly depend on your personal needs as a publisher, as well as your geographic location. For example, if your priority is receiving fast payments, good alternatives include Payoneer, Paypal, BTC, or Paxum over a wire transfer.

Remember that different payment companies have different fee policies that are beyond our control so you might want to be selective to minimize these costs. Since not all countries accept all payment terms, we have included a wide range of alternatives so all publishers worldwide can get their payments on time.

Some of the fee policies for some of our payment methods to take into consideration:

  • PayPal: we don’t charge any fees, but PayPal might charge a 3%-5% fee, depending on the country of origin, PayPal account type, and amount.
  • Payoneer – we don’t charge any fees.
  • Wire (bank transfer) – standard $40 fee for bank transfers.
  • Bitcoin – no fees charged, but we will initially send a $1-$5 test payment before transferring the full amount. 

Can I review earnings for each of my sites separately?

Often, publishers own more than one domain. For these instances, we developed an easy reporting solution in our dashboard. Simply go to the report section, and select a site from your portfolio in the site name filter. You can then click on the site’s name with the specific ad type and date range. That’s it, you’ll have the earning stats you need for your desired domain. 

It is possible to view your total revenue for each site along with multiple tags under them. These results will help you improve the monetization across your portfolio of sites. Make the most of our dashboard by filtering by site, placement/s, and date ranges. 

Use your “Publisher Reports” to extract and generate your daily revenue stats. Whether you need to review yesterday’s stats, the last 7 days, the last 30 days, this month, last month, or a custom time range in which you can extract data from the exact dates that you need – using multiple tags simultaneously to filter the data.  

We hope you find these reporting tools useful to get the best insights and improve your revenues with AdMaven’s products. Also, we hope that our wide range of payment options helps you simplify and facilitate the payment process. 

If you have any doubts about which is the best payment method for your sites or how to make the most of our platform’s revenue analytics tools get in touch with our support team HERE!
