"It's clear that online publishers are looking for an alternative to ad-based PPC programs like Google's AdSense," said Robert Alvin, CEO of NetLine Corporation. "The ability to monetize their sites with higher payouts and a stronger value proposition are the two distinguishing factors that are resonating the most with our partners."
RevResponse.com generates revenue for its partner publishers by providing them with free contextual content in the form of complimentary business and tech magazine subscriptions, whitepapers, product trials, podcasts, and document downloads which the publishers are able to offer to their users. Each qualified subscription or offer request guarantees the publisher a minimum of a $1.50 commission, and some deliver significantly higher earnings.
While in Beta mode, publishers saw significant growth in their earnings by using RevResponse.com, which they attribute to its targeted and relevant catalog of valuable free business-to-business resources. Publishers are also crediting the ability to communicate with the RevResponse.com team during the Beta test and after the release for the success of the program and the revenue they were able to generate.
"Using the online forum, we communicated directly with the RevResponse team to provide input on our experiences with the new site. Within hours, the feedback we provided had been analyzed and in many cases implemented," said Deb Alloway of ToolButton.com. "NetLine has been a great company to work with, not only because of the revenue dollars they have helped us earn, or the inventory they provide, but because of the personal contact and respect they have for their partners."
Publishers have also praised RevResponse.com for maintaining the integrity of their websites. RevResponse.com allows publishers to generate income without inundating their audience with ads and allows them to retain their audience within their own site, without any redirects. All content/landing pages offered through RevReponse.com can be co-branded to match the look and feel of a partner's site.
"We've worked hard to maintain the integrity of our partners' sites," added Alvin. "It strengthens audience retention on the primary site which keeps everyone happy."
RevResponse.com expects tens of thousands of partners to join the program by year's end. For more information, visit http://www.revresponse.com/.
Unilever, the company behind products like Dove soap, is driving forest destruction and speeding up climate change by buying palm oil from companies which are destroying Indonesia's rainforests to make way for palm oil plantations. By their own admission, Unilever is the biggest single user of palm oil in the world.
Unilever pretends to be an environmentally responsible company, but what it is actually responsible for is destroying areas of rainforest, driving species extinction and speeding up global warming. Being one of the biggest users of palm oil on the planet, Unilever must stop buying palm oil from these companies and call for a halt on the destruction of Indonesian forests to grow palm oil.
LONDON (Reuters) - A gambling advertisement that claimed online betting would improve sexual prowess and self esteem has become one of the first campaigns to be banned under tough new laws, following criticism from the advertising watchdog.
The national press campaign for online casino Paddy Power was irresponsible in linking gambling to "seduction, sexual success and enhanced attractiveness", the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled.
The advert, published in the Times, featured a dwarf in a limousine flanked by two beautiful women, smoking a cigar and holding up a champagne glass.
A strapline accompanying the advert said: "Who says you can't make money being short?"
The ASA, in a separate ruling, also criticized a gambling television advertisement campaign that featured "slapstick, juvenile humor that was likely to appeal to children".
The Intercasino campaign also featured dwarves, this time undertaking "Jackass-style" stunts including rolling down hills in dice outfits and sliding down bell-ropes dressed as fruit-machine cherries.
The watchdog has banned both campaigns in the UK -- the first since tough new gambling advertising laws were introduced last September.Upholding a complaint against Paddy Power, the ASA criticized it for linking gambling with sexual success and an improved self-image.

First Industry Studies Measure High Ad Effectiveness Across Four Product Categories Over Two Years
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Podtrac, the leading network of podcasts and online shows, today announced the results of four independent advertising effectiveness studies with TNS, a global market research company, which reveal podcasts as having a three-fold ad effectiveness increase over traditional online video and a seven-fold effectiveness increase over television. Unaided ad awareness across two years of studies was 68% compared to industry benchmarks of 21% for streaming video and 10% for television. The studies spanned two years, from February 2006 to March 2008, and multiple product categories including: television programming, automobile, financial services, and digital imaging. 52 online shows and podcasts participated in the four campaigns studied and 6,869 audience members participated in the research.
Ad formats consisted of: embedded :15 and :30 host-read audio and video ads, embedded :10 and :15 produced video ads, ad banners on publisher websites, and social networking in the form of publisher blog entries about advertised brands and related topics. Podtrac developed the advertising effectiveness methodology in conjunction with TNS.
The study showed embedded advertising in online shows and podcasts to be highly effective for increasing brand awareness, usage intent and positively impacting brand perceptions across four diverse product categories: television programming, automobiles, financial service, and digital imaging. Results included:
• Average unaided ad recall of 68%
• Average aided ad recall of 89%
• 73% average increase in likelihood to use/buy vs control group
• 69% having a more favorable view of advertiser due to ad exposure
“The unaided awareness level of 68% is considerably higher in podcasts and online shows than in other offline and online media,” said Mark McCrery, Podtrac’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Narrowly targeted audiences, appropriate ad formats, content relevance, and show host involvement are some of the factors which come together to produce highly effective ads in online shows and podcasts.”
“The data also suggest audiences are paying close attention to show content and the embedded ads within them which greatly increased ad effectiveness in the studies,” said Doug Keith, former Vice President of the Media & Entertainment Group at TNS and currently President of Future Research Consulting. “The high unaided ad recall figures are no doubt the results of a less cluttered environment.”
“Online shows and podcasts have loyal audiences who pay attention to advertisers who support the shows they regularly listen to or watch,” said Velvet Beard, Podtrac’s Vice President of Products. “The studies showed a 73% increase in likelihood to use or buy an advertised product which is an indication of successful targeting, the unique relationship audience members have with the hosts of today’s online shows, and their ability to quickly move audiences from awareness to consideration to purchase. The studies showed that 69% of audience members have a more favorable view of in-show advertisers, which means a tremendous amount of goodwill goes to advertisers of online shows when show selection is intentional and advertising and ad formats are integrated into show formats.”
The 52 podcasts and online shows studied as part of the research include: This Week in Tech, MacBreak Weekly, net@night, and Daily Giz Wiz all with TWiT.tv’s Leo Laporte; MacBreak, MacBreak Tech and This Week in Media with PixelCorp.tv’s Alex Lindsey; Geek News Central with Todd Cochran; SDR News with Andy McCaskey; Feast of Fools; Filmspotting; and FlashTV.
Spending on online video ads represents less than 4% of all Internet advertising and just 1% of the amount spent on TV, according to eMarketer. But growth is expected – with eMarketer forecasting U.S. spending more than tripling to $4.3 billion in 2011. The size of podcast monthly audiences is expected to reach 50 million by 2010.

Consumers do not automatically accept green claims made in advertisements. In fact, the Burst survey found one in five (22.7%) respondents say they seldom or never believe green claims made in advertisements. Two-thirds (65.3%) of respondents say they "sometimes" believe green claims made in advertisements, and 12.1% say they "always" believe green advertising claims. Skeptical consumers want to be able to investigate claims, and many do. Burst's survey found that 41.6% of consumers frequently or occasionally research the claims made in green advertisements, with only 30.1% refraining from any further research.
The Burst survey found that four out of five (79.6%) respondents use the Internet to conduct personal research on green initiatives and products. The survey also found that many respondents find the availability of corporate information on green and environmentally safe products and services lacking. Burst's survey showed that 41.6% would rate corporate information as only average and many others would rate the information as fair (20.8%) or poor (17.2%).
The Burst survey also revealed several interesting findings about the green consumer. These include:
"Businesses that can support their claims in their green messaging and sustainability topics in a way that incorporates the consumer in the conversation are at an advantage in the marketplace," said Jarvis Coffin, CEO of Burst Media. "In providing information that is accessible, transparent and easy for consumers to share, businesses have the opportunity to reach consumers in relation to a core personal value."

According to this news item on ZDNet, Verizon Communications filed a lawsuit accusing rival Time Warner Cable of false advertising.
Verizon said Time Warner Cable's TV ads falsely imply that Verizon's Fios video service requires a satellite dish, that it does not include phone, broadband and video, and that Time Warner's network is better, in a lawsuit filed on Wednesday at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
To compensate for "immediate and irreparable harm" to the reputation of its brand, Verizon demands an injunction barring Time Warner Cable from running the spots. It also wants Time Warner to air ads retracting the claims, in addition to financial redress for damages, including attorney fees and profits lost.
A spokesman for Time Warner said the suit was "without merit," and the firm looks forward to "defending against it in the appropriate venue."tag: false advertising, AD Legal, AD Firms, AD Business, Verizon's Fios, Time Warner AD Sphere: Related Content

This news got financial pundits jumping all over the globe. I am sure someone at Microsoft must be jumping up and down too!. Even if he is not jumping, this latest move by Yahoo will add complications to Microsoft's wish to get Yahoo under its arms.
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Apr 09, 2008 -- Yahoo! Inc., a leading global Internet company, announced today that it will begin a limited test of Google Inc.'s AdSense for Search service, which will deliver relevant Google ads alongside Yahoo!'s own search results. The test will apply only to traffic from yahoo.com in the U.S. and will not include Yahoo!'s extended network of affiliate or premium publisher partners. The test is expected to last up to two weeks and will be limited to no more than 3% of Yahoo! search queries.
As previously announced, Yahoo!'s board of directors is exploring strategic alternatives to maximize stockholder value, including exploration of potential commercial business arrangements.

The Company further stated that it would not comment on the nature or timing of any potential relationship.SOURCE: Yahoo! Inc.

"Don't be fooled by Jeremy Stoppelman's persona. The barely-30 CEO of local-review site Yelp may exude the Web 2.0 ethos, sporting jeans and T-shirts about town, bringing his dog, Darwin, to work, and hosting blowout parties at San Francisco's swank Roe or his own South-of-Market Street loft.
Just beneath the hipster facade, Stoppelman is serious about business. During an hour-long interview,Web-based business models are all clamoring for ad dollars, but how many of them have asked the hard questions of themselves? Like, "Will our users click banner ads?""
td AdMatch scans the content of web pages and contextually matches ads alongside related website content. By improving the relevancy of advertising on publisher websites, internet users are more likely to respond - helping to drive higher quality click-throughs and increase results for both advertisers and website publishers.
As a supporter of contextual advertising, Chris King, Head of Affiliates at BT, said: “We’re excited about the possibilities afforded by td AdMatch. Online consumers are becoming ever more savvy and the need for solutions to more effectively engage with them through targeted, relevant advertising is growing. td AdMatch will allow BT to drive even better performance from our ads through contextual targeting.”
Joshua James, Head of Client Services at eConversions, has been impressed with the initial trials of td AdMatch and comments, “Having been chosen to help trial TradeDoubler’s td AdMatch solution, we at eConversions have been very impressed with the initial results and are eagerly anticipating the full launch. With the ability to display contextual product feeds, image and text ads, or even all three, td AdMatch can add true value to a website. However, what really separates td AdMatch from its rivals, is how it is able to match such highly relevant ads to the content of a website – something others have promised but, thus far, failed to deliver upon.”
td AdMatch works across automated and manual specified keyword matching and allows publishers to create their own, customized ads. The product ensures control and transparency for the entire network, with advertisers only appearing on approved sites and publishers only receiving ads for advertisers they have applied to.
Commenting on the launch of the new solution, Ben Manning, Product Director at TradeDoubler, says: “td AdMatch allows TradeDoubler to harness our broad and diverse range of advertisers and contextually match their ads to content from our extensive affiliate network, whilst giving control and transparency to both publishers and advertisers. This vast breadth is important because it increases relevancy and allows more accurate targeting of an advertiser’s audience to drive even more results.”
td AdMatch follows the launch earlier this month of TradeDoubler’s product search solution, MyShop.
How are advertisements purchased online? There are many way that advertisements are purchased but CPM, CPV, CPC (PPC), and CPA are the most common methods of purchasing online advertising or internet advertising. The others include CPL, and CPO. These methods are found at any major and small advertising service providers such as Google,Yahoo,MSN and many other providers such as Performics, Hydra Network, Motive Interactive, Commission Junction/BeFree, LinkShare, Primeq or Azoogle.
The other uncommon methods are such things like Sony's famous "All I want for Christmas is a PlayStation Portable.". a fake advertising campaign via a fake weblog. Although Sony got caught, and apologized, it bring the brand name forward.
Then there is pages like The Million Dollar Homepage that only require a one time payment ($1 per pixel of advertising space) and the advertisement is run as long as the website is alive. But the pitfall of these type of advertising is that after the initial torrent of people coming to the site, interest wanes and the site might disappear all together. Then again there will be million more pages like that, copycats or not.
Back again to acronyms;
So now you know a bit about some online advertising acronyms, put them to use and make some money online either as a publisher or an advertiser..
