Why no pro version for AdVert

To make advertising on WordPress easier


Time waisting

I lost more than an hour trying to set up this peace of **it.

My campaigns every time go to Archive status even I set up everything correctly.

Deleted from my plugins..

Useful… But Improvements needed

This plugin can be useful to advertise your way!
When I first installed advert, I went for a spin, and tried out some of these features.
With Advert, you can still monetize your site,–even without a hassle of these ad networks.
Screwed by Google AdSense? Advert will take over.
Here are these improvements what I’m suggesting:
Custom post type, ad banners needs to be created.
Built-in rotator,–so ads can rotate. This is going to be useful for impression-based banners.
Dedicated Advertising guidelines settings for the Advert Dashboard.
