A Complete How-To Guide on Our 3 Latest Monetization Tools
You have a site or blog and you're looking for a new way to monetize. Display ads aren't returning enough revenue. Affiliate advertising is too sporadic and you already have email advertising figured out.
Let one of our three spankin-new monetization tools come to the rescue! Check out our video above or read on for more information.
This tool provides you the capability to trigger a lightbox with a featured resource to appear when a reader visits your site. Your visitors get the added benefit of downloading a valuable eBook, white paper or magazine and you can increase your audience revenue.
How does it work?
First, go through the steps as outlined on the Offer Lightbox page. Add the introductory text you'd like to appear at the top of the lightbox, pick a color theme and narrow the offers by specifying the categories that pertain to your content. The more specific you are, the more likely your leads will be qualified.
The lightbox is preset with a three-second delay before it fires and a cookie duration of three days. These can be modified within the code. In addition, the box is also set to appear when any visitors comes to your page. This can also be modified to only be visible to visitors that find your site on search engines. Just click on "Generate Ad Code" when you've determined your Settings and change the following before highlighting the code and copying it between the "body" tags in your site.
To make it easier to change, all the code appears at the top of the code snippet. First, copy it to your page, then change the following:
-To only set the lightbox to appear to search engine visitors, change "var_check_search="false" to the "true" variable.
-To choose a different time delay, replace the number in "var_delay_time="3" to the one you'd prefer.
-To pick another cookie duration, again change "var_cookie_date" to the number you'd like.
There you have it! A complete tutorial on how to add an Offer Lightbox that allows you further monetize your traffic and provide an added benefit to your audience.
You're bored of the traditional ways to promote your advertisements. You have them on the sidebar, in your header/footer and throughout your site copy. You're worried they may be obtrusive, a visitor may have complained or you may want to provide a cleanier experience to your readers.
You want a new and exciting method and you're not sure where to find it.
That's one instance where the Slideout Box can help. Using the Slider idea found on blogs and other sites that shows related posts, ours promotes one of our featured resources. It's set to trigger about halfway down the page when a reader is scrolling down as not to disturb their experience. As you can see in the screenshot, it can be minimized or closed for an unobtrusive view.
How does it work?
To utilize this tool, follow the two steps in the setup page and select a color that compliments your site and categories that pertain to your content. The more specific you are, the more likely your leads will be qualified. Click on "Generate Ad Code" then "Highlight All" and copy the code in-between the body tags on your site
Congratulations, you just integrated another medium to your revenue mix!
To follow the Slideout Box, the TopBar is another unique approach to monetizing your site by providing your readers with valuable resources.
You may have seen a toolbar at the bottom or the top of the screen. It usually provides social sharing features that allow visitors to engage with the site through various online networks. This TopBar sits at the top of the site and displayed one featured offer every time a visitor comes to your page. It can easily be minimized or maximized per a readers' preference.
How does it work?
Go through the steps in the Settings page, select a color and click on the categories that relate to your content. The more specific you are, the less likely your leads will be rejected. Click on "Generate Ad Code" and copy the code to your in-between the "<body></body>" tags.
It's that easy. Make your friends jealous and spread the word on your new money-making lightbox, slider, or toolbar on Twitter or Facebook.
