Ad Fraud — One of the major plights facing the digital advertising industry, and display advertising in particular, is the effect that bots have on their online advertising performance. It has been reported that $6 billion is lost to fraudulent advertising per year by accounting for portions of advertisers’ impression and click metrics. While this should not deter advertisers away from the online advertising, they should nonetheless be aware of the issue and account for it as much as possible.
Before we dive into practice, let us first start with some important questions - why use display advertising? In 2020 more than $68 billion will be spent on digital display ads in the US and each year this number will be growing. In fact, display advertising remains to be one of the most widely used forms of online advertising throughout the last decades. Why is it so and what is one of the major benefits of display ads?
When you consider how expensive it is now-a-days for: mailers, fliers, buying leads, brochures, pay-per-click ads, face to face meeting, home parties, meeting room rentals, giving out free samples, newspaper/magazines ads, radio spots, TV, etc etc, — you'd easily pay $5000 or more anywhere else in your advertising costs to recruit, — with zero guarantees.
When in doubt, borrow from widely-known cultural references (just be sure you’re abiding by the platform’s advertising guidelines). While the ad below isn’t hilarious in its own right, viewers associate it with Will Ferrell’s Anchorman movie, which is riddled with slapstick humor. The quote below the image, which is also from Anchorman, reiterates this. Even better, when users click to like it, the heart appears directly over both the ice cream and Ron Burgundy’s heart. Pretty clever, right?

85% of companies that utilize online video advertising find it successful. This is due in part to the fact that video content, advertising or not, is among the most engaging forms of online content. With specific focus on advertising, this means that marketers’ video ads will likely be more effective than other ad formats. For instance, Google reported in August 2015 that online video advertisements improved ad recall rates. Furthermore, online video advertising offers advertisers the highest average CTR of any digital advertising channel at 1.84%, and consumers are 64% more likely to purchase a product or service after interacting with it through video. To top it off, views of online video ads are skyrocketing, with Business Insider reporting an average year-over-year growth of 100%.. As such, online video ads not only improve brand awareness, but can also have an effect on the bottom line as well.
The biggest thing that works for native ads is their ability to flow seamlessly within the blog/website content to the extent that it doesn’t really look like advertising, at all. Additionally, native ads enhance the appeal of clickability by making content more relatable and interesting. It seems that the increase of native ads in important publications, and on various niches, means that they are here to stay.
My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
One way to weed out the people who are not right for network marketing is to have a talk with them about their goals, expectations and whether they need training in a specific area. Then give them a task and a deadline as a way to prove that they are indeed committed to the business and that they are coachable. They are not proving it to you, but to themselves. Either they will rise to the occasion or they will quit.
