What are TextAds?
TextAds are a simple, polite, and inexpensive alternative to banners and other online advertising.
How do TextAds work?
TextAds are inserted into webpages just like any other content. Visitors see a small text box with your link and text similar to the example below:
How to TextAds compare to other online advertising?
TextAds provide all of the benefits of other forms of online advertising without the annoying downsides. There has been a considerable amount of backlash by users as many online advertisers have resorted to more and more desperate attempts to capture user's attention. Pop-up ads, Pop-under ads, full-page ads. These are just a few examples of advertising that many users find to be intrusive. So much so that several companies have begun distributing software that lets users block all traditional forms of advertising. TextAds, by comparison, are small, effective, and most importantly, respectful of users. They cannot be blocked by ad filtering software and have proven to be quite successful.
How much to TextAds cost?
TextAds are inexpensive, but effective. The cost to show your ad 5000 times (our minimum) is only 5.00. This makes buying ads so inexpensive that practically anyone can run their own ad.
What should I advertise?
Maybe you are in a band, have a great idea, or anything else that you want to promote. Maybe you want to highlight your favorite cause by pointing a TextAd at it's website. Maybe you just want to shamelessly promote yourself. As long as the site you are promoting isn't pornographic, hateful, or advertising a scam, go ahead! We reserve the right to pull any offensive ads, in which case a refund would be issued. If you purchase an ad for your website and then change your website to something against the rules after the ad has already started, you won't receive a refund.
How do I purchase TextAds?
You can click here which will take you to a form that lets you create your TextAd and preview how it will look. Once you're satisfied with the wording of your ad, you can pay for your ads using PayPal.
What is PayPal?
PayPal is a popular and secure online payment system used by many online merchants. When you sign up for PayPal, they will collect your credit card or checking account information. When you make purchases using PayPal, PayPal debits your account directly. We do not collect any credit card or other financial information from you. This provides an additional layer of security that many users find comforting and is just one of the reasons PayPal is used by many of the buyers and sellers on eBay.
How will I know how my TextAds are doing?
We provide a reporting system that lets you track the number of ad impressions served and the number of click-thrus they generate. We even show you a daily summary of how your ads are performing. The example below demonstrates what information we provide you.
