Hello folks, I really need some feedback about a marketing concept I have been working on. I have spent a lot of time on this project, and it still needs more work to make it perfect. So before I waste more time on this, I would appreciate an honest opinion from other website owners. But please, read the full article before you form an opinion.
Some of you may have seen Rich Media ads on other sites, the floating flash ads that walk's around the screen.
I have seen some negative remarks regarding this type of ads. The main concern was that the ad can't be closed and its annoying when it shows time after time and forces the user to wait for the animation to end. From site owners view, I have read some say it slows the server, while others say it misses up the site design
I took this concept to a higher level by tweaking around with the idea, and eliminating users and publishers concerns . In addition, I have created an ad network based on the same concept as Adbrite and Google. I strongly believe a lot of advertisers would pay good money to show Rich Media ads. My concern is with the site owners, without publishers there can be no advertisers. As I already said, the concept can still use some work to make it perfect, but I need to know if any publisher will be interested in this before I waste more time. Here is what I changed...
First, I created flash ads that can be used by any type of business. Then I added tracking codes and close buttons to those ads. A user can only see the ad once per day, a user can close ad at anytime with large visible "Close" button and text. The advertiser can add his own text to those ads.
Second, I created a software that allows advertisers to upload a flash ad that shows automatically on a publisher site once its approved by the publisher. I eliminated additional codes and files that needs to be uploaded into publisher site for Rich Media ads to work. Its only a one line code now, a website owner needs to put this 1 line code anywhere after the <body> and that's it. The ads appear to float above the page content and will not affect the site design or speed.
So what do you guys think of this concept? Please, I need your honest opinion
(Any site owner wants to join my ad network and test it out? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)

I'd already given you my opinion on this on your other thread, advertising your http://www.samoads.com website.
My opinion stay's fairly the same, though I will go ahead and elaborate on it for you so you can get more of an idea of where I am coming form. Like you said, read my ENTIRE post before forming a conclusion and getting upset over it.
When you really think about it, most web surfers don't absolutely hate ads, as long as they:
1) Do not cover the content of the page.
2) Are not -so- eyepopping that they divert the eyes from what the user is really trying to see.
3) They are not too big and too bulky.
Now, I realize that the three ideas above are (in part) the same idea, just with different wording. You're idea of an advertisement campaign pretty much -blows- those three things right out of the water:
1) It covers the content of the page, even if only for a breif minute.
2) Since it covers the content of the page, it diverts the eyes from what the user is trying to see.
3) It is huge and very bulky.
Okay - So you get the gist. You're ads are horrible, and they will make me not want to stay on somebody's page.
We're talking money here. For the kind of ads you're going to be displaying, the advertiser is sure to get -some- kind of return from it. So they are most likely going to be willing to pay a good few dollars per click, or something similar.
If you give a good amount of -your- revenue to the publisher (web site owner), you are sure to get alot of web site's who will be wanting to display your ads.
Now, like I said.. Your ads would want me to NEVER go to that site again...
If the site has good quality of whatever it is I'm looking for, I would -still- return to the site despite the few seconds advertisement that would annoy me.
This is the internet. It's 2009 for gods sake. There will be ads, and people like me are just going to have to get over it.
If you have the patience and ambition to start this and continue doing it, I say go for it - it may turn out to make you some good money or it could go down the drain. You'll never know unless you try.
