Is Ad 4 Game any good? Alternatives for video game sites?

13 replies
Hi,

I'm about to launch a very weird PS4 related site and was wondering if Ad 4 Game is a good CPM/CPA network and if there are similar or alternative options for a video game oriented site. I don't want to go with AdSense if I can avoid it, at least for the moment. So... any experience? Any recommendation?

Thanks in advance.

    Ad4Game is good but your website need to have high traffic volume before applying.

    I'd suggest you to build a list of gamers and send them game offers. It should be better in long term

      I know. I read somewhere they require 10 000 daily visits (not sure if unique).

      That's part of my plan also. In fact I'll try to monetize the site in 3 ways: third party CPM/CPC ads, my own affiliate links (to geek/gaming stores) and building a list.

      I have experience with the first two but lists, as other things, are completely new to me. In fact I've been reading your PPV Game Killer WSO (is this the correct name?)... and I have absolutely no idea what PPV means! I know "pay-per-view" but I guess it is another thing. So... is it email marketing or another model? I ask because you got me really interested in the WSO (since gaming is the niche I'm going to start with) but if it is a different model that would distract me from my current plan then I'll pass until I have the time to start a new project.

        Thank you for purchasing my product!

        Basically, PPV is a kind of software traffic. Let think about popup. PPV traffic will display your landing page or offer like that. Another word you can call it is 'Interruption marketing'

        If you want to be the advertiser of PPV traffic, let go to site like LeadImpact or TrafficVance. There are options for you to make money!

              Jaja!, de España, Madrid (bueno ver a gente hablando en español por aquí )

              Me alegra que te vinieran bien, Arojilla. En esa web voy metiendo todos mis sitios útiles y que me funcionan (algunos más que menos, pero interesantes todos).

              Nos vamos diciendo gaming networks interesantes, ok?
              Saludos!

                ¡Si no conozco! Soy nuevo en esto, tengo mucha experiencia en diseño, programación (PHP) y en SEO, pero de afiliados, marketing (que no sea SEO claro) y del mundillo de la publicidad, quitando AdSense y cosas así, pués ni idea. Por lo demás, encantado de colaborar contigo en lo que pueda (más adelante porque ahora mismo estoy a punto de lanzar un par de webs con las que me lo juego casi todo).

                Ok, from now on let's continue in english, shall we?

                EDIT: BTW I found really funny one of your gaming blog's ads, one about a PS4 contest or giveaway, and the reason is that very very close to what I'm launching next week!

          Oh no, I did not buy it. At least not yet, sorry for the confusion! What I read was your post about the WSO not the WSO itself. Until I launch the site next week I'm too busy on the development side.

          Oh, now I see that I already sort of knew what PPV is.

          Have a big thank you!

    Well ad4fgame is definetly worth co-operation, but if they decline you due to low volumes, you can try some alternative like Epom market, which is really interested in niche like yours. Cheers.

      This. ad4game is a total win, but if they don't approve you take a look at Epom.

        Thanks for the suggestion of Epom but I'm browsing their site I see nothing related to gaming... :confused:

        They talk about 15 different verticals, guess gaming is one?

          You see, on their site you can find many things related to ad server solution, which is called Epom ad platform. Network solution is called Epom market, you just need to sign up as Epom Market Publisher and your account manager will contact you thru email to discuss possible campaigns, niche, rates etc. They indeed have offers for gaming niche.
