If you publish great content and get a lot of traffic to your blog, then you’re or most probably are looking to monetise it through brand ads. This is something you can set up yourself, however if you’re looking for a way to make it easier, we recommend using one of the two advertising plugins for WordPress featured below.
The Advanced Ads WordPress plugin is one of the best free advertising plugins for WordPress. It currently has over three thousand active installs and a star rating of 4.8 out of 5, proving just how popular it’s with publishers.
This particular ad plugin is designed to make it easier for bloggers to place ads on their site and uses a page similar to WordPress’ post editor to do so. It also allows publishers to set up ad rotations, scheduling and ad expiry dates so you can remain in full control of the ads featured on the blog.
In terms of placing adverts, Advanced Ads lets you pick and choose which pages and posts they show up on. You can also select which visitors see your ads to ensure they reach the right target audience.
Advanced Ads is free to download and very simple to set up. You just need to make sure you use PHP 5.3 or higher for this plugin to work properly.
If you’re looking for a slightly more upmarket advertising plugin for WordPress and are willing to pay for it, then OIOPublisher will make a fantastic choice. This advertising plugin for WordPress is designed to help you maximise your revenue, save time and remain in full control of your ad space.
Unlike many other WordPress advertising plugins, OIOPublisher actually automates the selling process. On your ad sales page (created by the plugin) advertisers will be able to upload their ad image, fill out their information, select how long they’d like their ad to run and choose their payment method. The plugin allows users to set up discounts for long-running adverts, as well as monthly subscriptions.
Once you’ve approved the ad, the plugin will automatically display it on your blog and send out regular statistics to the advertiser. It oversees all elements of monetising a blog with adverts and what’s even better is that you get to keep 100% of your revenue.
Thanks to plugins like Advanced Ads and OIOPublisher, monetising your WordPress website with adverts has never been easier. If you plan on selling the adverts yourself, then you can simply opt for a free plugin like Advanced Ads, whereas if you want a plugin that will do everything from taking payments for ads to notifying buyers of statistics, OIOPublisher will tick all the boxes.
