I haven’t posted about RSS much lately, since there’s been very little going on.
Great content is the advertisment (as it should be).
That’s very cool, and there’s a lot more to explore in the area that Gabe is blazing a trail in.
Now today, Text Link Ads released Feedvertising, a free WordPress plugin that allows you to rotate sponsored advertising copy and links in your RSS feed. If you’re reading this via feed (or email) right now, look down at the bottom to see an example.
Now, besides being in a more effective text format (as opposed to a banner ad), here’s the really cool part about Feedvertising:
You can use the technology to manage ads, whether or not you ever accept an ad brokered by TLA. So, this means you can use Feedvertising to:
- Manage and display ads you sell in house
- Promote affiliate programs
- Promote your other blogs
- Link to just about anything you want
All for free.
Another great thing is you can rotate the ads automatically. So, you can display different ads to keep it fresh, or you can test different copy and link text to see what gets the best response.
Tubetorial has a demo video for Feedvertising as part of the 7 Essential WordPress Hacks series, so you can see how to set it up and how it works.
Let me know what you think, and if you think it’s cool too, help spread the word.
Disclosure: While TLA is a sponsor of Tubetorial, no payment was offered or received for this post or the video demo. I beta tested Feedvertising for a week (some of you may have noticed) before deciding to feature it on either site.
Gabe didn’t give me any money either. 🙂
