This DIY in-text Ad plugin is Brilliant
I don’t normally rate anything, but I had too after stumbling across this. This plugin is seriously cool.
What an awesome way for me to put more Ad’s on my network of sites, that are targeted to the keyword, without cluttering them up with more banner ads (that most people are ignoring these days anyways).
I put this to work right away on one of my blogs and in about 10 minutes I had my first Ad done…
I made a bubble Ad that has my YouTube video embedded along with some text and a link (for a niche that I am an affiliate for).
Once I was done the ad, I inserted the Ad it into one of my article posts using a relevant keyword phrase!! (not just a keyword).
Now, when you read the article you can easily see the keyword phrase in the article (I set the link format to a slightly larger font size, dark orange and underlined).
The seriously cool part is when you hover your mouse over the keyword phrase…the bubble Ad instantly appears above and you can interact with the Video (watch it, stop it, whatever). If you hover away it instantly disappears.
The Ad is hidden and only appears if the user interacts with it.
Since I get to control the content and the keywords, I can completely focus my Ad to my interested readers…BUT the reader has the control which is great I think.
This is unobtrusive marketing to my audience BUT at the same time completely targeted to my niche.
This version only allows 1 Ad on each page or a post, but I checked the pro version from this guys site and you can get a plan that gives you up to 10! I may upgrade.
I hope they can somehow put in analytic’s and/or A/B split testing, that would be insane to measure the performance.
Freaking cool plugin man, thanks
