you’re going to notice a few changes around here as you scroll down our site. it’s getting cleaner and more organized, folks! we haven’t been a part of the modern blogging community for very long, but it’s been long enough for us to appreciate the time and energy this super stellar new ad management tool saves us! seriously. if you’re not using it yet, you’re doing yourself a disservice…
(there is usually only one cute heart in their logo, but I felt it deserved a few more)
Passionfruit’s creator, Jason Lynes, hit it out of the park with this one, and from the conversations we’ve had it’s only going to get exponentially more awesome. (yes, that’s right, I said conversations – this dude is one of those forward thinking, long-term mindset, business owners who connects with his customers. judging from the 1,000,000 ads that have already found a home with Passionfruit, it’s paying off.)
so how does this great tool work? WELL, basically it’s like a virtual ibuprofen for your ad management migraine. hmm, no, that’s like saying it masks the problem, when really it gives it a swift kick in the butt and ushers it out of your life while you heave a great sigh of relief.
the process is quite straight forward.
1. simple account creation
2. set up your ad spots
(lots of great options here, including if you want the spots to shuffle or line up in the order they were purchased, and more to come!)
3. place the ads for purchase on your site
4. define where you want your ads to show up
(nothing will show up on your site yet, it’s just getting the nursery ready – because of all the baby language, you know)
5. make some babies! er, ads.
(you will probably want to import the ads you already have on your site or this is also how you should put any of your own ads on your site. I initially thought I’d have to make a promo code for myself in order to place one of my own ads with out paying myself, but no, just import it! yes, I said promo codes, I’ll get to that in a bit.)
5b. let others know they can make babies on your site!
(our baby-making factory is right here)
when someone goes to purchase an ad this is what they’ll see
do you see that??? they get to upload their ad themselves! not only that, but they can log in and change their ad if they need to. (you’ll always have the option to approve/edit) did you also notice that promo code box?
6. you might want to make a promo code (great for ad swaps!)
yep! that code will work on any of our ad spots, and it’s the one you use on our swap option in order to get some FREE swapping action going.
go on, do it now! (Passionfruit lets people purchase ads ANY time, not just at the beginning of the month )
let’s see, did I forget anything? oh!
7. feel really smart for making your life more efficient
that’s about it! we obviously highly recommend Passionfruit.
