BuySellAds Review: MonetizeMore Ad Network Analysis

BuySellAds Review: MonetizeMore Ad Network Analysis

We’ve done ad network reviews on many traditional and nontraditional ad networks. BuySellAds falls into the latter category. It is a unique ad network that targets all countries and can be a great addition to your ad inventory. In this post, we’ll cover all facets and dive deeper into this ad network with our BuySellAds review.

What really sets it apart is that you set the rates, at which you want to sell your ad spaces, on their interface. You might think I am talking about a minimum CPM but it’s different because nothing can be bought unless it’s at the price you just set.

The CPM you set on the BuySellAds marketplace is up for bid at that price and advertisers can see it and match your bid accordingly. If you use DFP, they will only grab impressions that they have already sold directly at the prices you set, so they will never send any impressions to backfill.

Whenever an advertiser buys inventory, BuySellAds sends you an email to Approve, Deny, or Request changes.

Perhaps you like the offer but don’t like the creative. You can request changes to whoever is bidding on your inventory and they can change things if your ad space is worth it. If no action is taken when an ad is sold it is auto-approved after 24 hours.

Although it can still be used if you do use DFP, BuySellAdsworks especially well if you use DoubleClick for Publishers as an ad server.  Here are the reasons why:

  • BuySellAds and DFP talk via the API to regulate serving over a fixed 30 day period and they don’t add any frequency caps to the line item.
  • Trafficking is handled automatically. When you approve an ad, they create a BuySellAds order in DFP and create a line item with the ad. It’s very straightforward!
  • Their seamless reporting is initiated by a seamless setup. All you have to do is link it to DFP using a few steps, set your prices on their interface and you are good to go!

They take a 25% commission on any sales they make through the marketplace, so if you want to NET $3.00 CPM, for example, then you need to set the rate at $4.00.
You can amend prices for new sales and they can initiate a procedure to raise the price to anyone who has already purchased at a lower rate.
Sometimes it may take a while for the advertisers to pick up on new inventory, but shouldn’t be too long, Ask your rep to add you to a bundle and also feature you on the homepage in rotation and that should get some sales going soon enough.

Bottom Line: We hope that you see now with this Buysellads review that the ability to set your prices and target countries, with an easy to use setup and interface make this a great addition to your ad inventory when monetizing your website. You have full control on the prices you set and deal directly with the advertisers so you have a chance to see exactly what ads will be placed on your site, for what price, and for how long.

    Hi, Thanks for the post really awesome. In my view, Buysellads is great but the issue with BSA is that it has a tough approval process. As an alternative publicity clerk really nice.

    Hello Kean,

    Very detailed post, but I have some queries. I am looking to sell ad spaces on my blogs and for that I guess BuySellAds can be the best place, but I have tried applying for it, but getting an approval is difficult as I have been rejected 2 times.

    I have also tried Adsense and Infolinks on my sites, but they do not work well, so I think selling ad spaces will get me more income, but not finding a way to do so as BuySellAds not approving, may be because my daily traffic is bit less, although I can meet requirements when I combine traffic for all blogs, Will it work?

    Is there any possibility that I can contact BuySellAds team and can get manual approval after showing all my sites?

    Or I can go with any other ad space selling network? Please Suggest few names which you have tested and are trusted to work with?
