What some bloggers think about PPP

comments from JohnChow blog (19th december 2007)

Seeds For Wealth said :
Audio Ads might be the worst thing for blogs but maybe great for some other kind of site.
Funny though, if Chow put AudioAds on his blog I’m sure you’d stay, SUCKA! - CAR
All I want to really say about these audioads is that I wish I ordered up this review. I’ll push audio ads ’cause you just never know. Big 5 search engine might rev the hype of this money maker through the roof

Michael Talk said :
Actually I think I might just take a look at his RSS feeds and brush through the good posts and will definitely visit less often.
And I think a lot of others agree with me too. But if there is the option to play or not play, I think it will be OK.
Don’t believe me? Just make John have the audio thing and see what happens!

Dith Pran is the man said :
I think this is “too intrusive advertising” area that would be wise to stay away from. I wouldn’t think twice about putting those on a site even if they paid $10/listen.

Danny @ MarketTreasure said :
Great, I’l be implementing them as well and se how we do.
5 seconds isn’t much

clickusername said :
One point brought up by the PPP sales letter is that due to the fragmentation of the audience for network TV, big advertisers with their huge budgets will start looking for other alternative areas to spend their ad dollars - one of them could be audio. The sample ads are from Harley Davidson, Taco Bell, Burger King, etc. Fairly big players , I say.

Ronald Su said :
5 second audio ads? That idea reminds of me those smilies flash ads that makes a sound when you hover over them

Cash Dominator - Money Maker said :
This seems like a really revolutionary product.

Shaun Carter said :
I find it peculiar that they say there are over 550,000 websites already using this advertising service and yet they are in pre-launch and won’t even serve ads yet.
I don’t think a short 5 second audio clip would be annoying at all. I usually have my speakers off and even if I didn’t it is much less annoying than the interstitials and pop-ups that many websites deploy on their visitors.

Emfoo said :
You dont believe in anything? No wonder you dont make money online! This is gonna be HUGE !!!! GODDBYE AGLOCO!!

gates said :
Another scam like aglogo?

Mystery said :
Oh please! Nothing can be compared to agloco! Never knew why people trusted and marketed them like crazy, while it was soooooo obvious that they (agloco) weren’t taking it seriously! Give me a break

NetAudioAds the next big thing online said :
NetAudioAds has been running for 2 n a half yrs. and they are not getting any smaller. In fact NetAudioAds has grown so much that it gained the attention of our new search engine partner whose name will be released before FEB 1st……BUHOOO —–Agloco SUCCCCCKKKKKKSSSS!!!!!

I suppose it all depends on what kind of site you are running. A blog, where its all about “reading” on a topic.. maybe not. A forum about motorcycles and new two wheeler products.. a 5sec “Harley Davidson” ad that runs only once, no big deal. 100% conversion is the holy grail of advertising for a publisher. You should never leave money on the table when it comes to monetizing......

Password manager said :
It is interesting way of advertisment these days. One of the website i listen radio music ragularly these is, they play the same audio ads. After every 3 songs you will listen one randomly selected ads. You will get good idea how effective these ads can be.

I am new in earning with blogs / sites, but I am learnining and I remeber / notice some things.
- I noticed that I get only few cents from google adsence
- I remeber that with Pat Per Play I get money for any visit - as there is no clicking!!
- I was reading, that I will get paid even visitor’s speakers are turned off
I understand that this method is more like TV or radio advertising, using PC - so Internet Marketing Revolution.

Net Audio Ads--the next big thing!!!! said :
the possibilities for this form of monetizing your sites is great. If you remember when Adsense first came out if you visited forums and read responces to it they also had bugs for some time. But look at the results since!

The Mad Ape said :
I signed up and already have over 50 sites under my name. This is a good advertising idea and I think it will work.
Look at the benfits 100% conversion rate
- The ads are supposed to be targetted
- Only 5 seconds long
- Unlike a click your site visitor does not leave
- No visible space used on your site. More space means you can trade advertising for content.
I put a test ad of by Taco Bell on one page of my blog and it is not annoying at all. It is professionally done, short and sweet!

AdsFun said :
I also have already joined it. hope can make a profit with them.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year 2008!

Comment by Charles Heflin

Charles Heflin posted great comment - I couldn't resist to post it on my blog

Charles Heflin here from SEO20/20… Interesting discussion here on PPP advertising.

I just wanted to jump in and let you know that I am here to address questions or concerns about PPP.
Understand that I was the 1st marketer to introduce the opportunity and that I am just an affiliate like anyone else. The only difference is that I have been charged with creating the promotion and initially introducing it in a viral fashion.

It has worked… After 3 weeks we have secured 3 million new websites and have gained new major advertisers from the big 8 advertising agencies (among many others).

If anyone has question about whether audio ads work just ask any podcasting website like or … Audio ads are in GIGANTIC demand and we have just secured the largest audio ad distribution network in Internet history in 3 weeks time.
Skeptics are abound and that is a good thing. Skeptics keep all of us on our toes to watch for the devil in the details.
5 second audio ads are not appropriate for every web page of every website. Webmasters, please use discretion when deciding where you will allow your visitors to hear audio ads. The last thing you want to do is scare your visitors away during a critical sales process.
Audio ads play ONCE per visitor to a web page that has the PPP code inserted.

Audio Ads are geared mainly to big brands but will be available to everyone.

Audio ads will be targeted to your website unless it is a major brand promotion like Coca-Cola… This brand is not site specific.

The ONLY reason PPP has launched is because our advertisers (current and new) are demanding way more reach than we had. After 3 weeks that reach has grown to 3,500,000 websites. Many of which are major online ad agencies that serve up billions of ad impressions on a monthly basis.

Our reach has grown from 43 million ad plays per month to an estimated 100 million per day in 3 weeks time!
Is this opportunity for real?
Well, being somewhat of an insider I can say, without a doubt, YES… This is the largest and fastest growing campaign both on the publisher and advertiser side that I have ever seen. I am proud that I was chosen as the launch developer and coordinator.
Fact: television advertising is dying (tivo, DVRs, Movies on Demand, etc.)
Fact: Major advertisers are seeking new media channels aggressively. We have already locked in most of the major ad firms on Madison Avenue in NYC who control advertising for just about every big brand that you can think of.
Fact: These advertisers have ad budgets in the billions and are ready to spend them with us starting February 1st… Between now and then we’re building our reach… Will you take part or sit idly and let someone else claim what you could have?
Fact: Audio ads have been proven to be effective and are growing aggressively… Be discriminate on where you place audio ads so that you don’t distract visitors during critical sales processes.
Fact: Geo targeting and metrics are available to all advertisers. Imagine Joe’s pizza (fictitious example) running a 5 second audio ad to a single zip code in their delivery area and knowing EXACTLY how many ad plays were “heard” with the comfort of knowing his pricing is based on only 80% of those plays. The website owner is paid on 100% of the plays whether they are heard or not.
The same holds true for our national and worldwide branding advertisers. All of PPP’s ad plays are verified through an independent third party… BPA Worldwide.
Fact: PPP has been running for 2 1/2 years and we already know that only 80% of users will actually “hear” the ad. This has already been calculated into the commission structure for affiliates and the pricing structure for advertisers.
Fact: Everyone hates advertising but it isn’t going anywhere, may as well prepare for a new era in advertising… One benefit is that it will be 5 seconds instead of 2 minutes (bye, bye TV)
Fact: Many people hated the idea of AdSense when it was first introduced but now more that 300 million websites run adsense ads. PPP has procured 3 million new sites in 3 weeks. This opportunity is still largely untapped… Wait on the sidelines? … go ahead … more for us that are actively expanding the reach of the PPP network.
I have addressed these facts because they cover the most common questions/concerns that we have been getting. If you have any others then please ask and I will be happy to answer

I hope this facts convinced you to try with this opportunity

Pay Per Play - Internet Marketing Revolution

NetAudioAds™ Pay-Per-Play (PPP) advertising is an advertising channel that is set to take the web by storm. Because of the size and scope of this deal (backed by one of the BIG 5 search engines), PPP advertising will become a world wide business media event.

PPP works on a bid management system similar to Google AdWords and will compensate publishers just like Google AdSense but with one critical difference

Publishers (website owners) will earn revenue on 100% of their traffic..
. no clicks necessary!

PPP is a way for advertisers (Like Harley Davidson or Taco Bell) to serve a 5 second audio advertisement to website visitors. It is a way for advertisers to target their 5 second audio ad to specific interests, demographics and geographic locations.

Big TV's ad revenue is dwindling because PPP offers advertisers a more cost effective advertising solution that has been providing positive Return on Investment (ROI) for over 2 years. PPP offers advertisers a way to reach their target audience and is the only form of media whose impressions and ad placements are verified by an independent 3rd party.

NetAudioAds™ PPP is not new, it has been running for 2 ½ years, has over 66,000 advertisers and over 550,000 websites that serve PPP ads to their visitors.

The 550,000+ websites that currently serve these ads are responsible for 43 million streams (impressions) of advertisers' 5 second audio ads on a monthly basis.

How much can I earn per play?

NetAudioAds™' PPP will be run on an automated bid management system like Google AdWords. Advertisers will go in and choose the types of sites that they want their ad played on and will then bid for placement. As in all bid management systems, the high bidder wins premium placement.
Bidding will begin on February 1st 2008, so our job (your job) is to get as many websites as possible to host the PPP code so that we can establish a footprint that will be verified by an independent 3rd party, BPA Worldwide. (PPP is the only online advertising medium that is verified by an “independent” and unbiased third party.)

The Compensation Plan

(1) As a website owner you have the opportunity to earn 25% of the "per-play" revenue spent by the advertisers that play audio ads on your website.
On average 25% is far more than what Google AdSense pays the webmaster for clicks. Further, Google refuses to disclose exactly how much they pay per click out of the revenue they receive from advertisers.

(2) With referrals - owners of blogs or web sites
- 5% of what the advertiser spends on PPP ads played on the website(s) of those you refer (1st level).
- 5% of what the advertiser spends on PPP ads played on the website(s) that your direct referrals bring on board. (2nd level).
