    Ad serving service

    How much?

    How much would you pay for an ad serving service? This service could both serve ads and act as a third party reporting service for your advertisers.

    I'm thinking about starting such a service because I need it for my own sites.

    I don't have exact figures but I know it is really expensive, More than I make off advertising I know that.

    I know current ones are really expensive... I was hoping to make one and offer it for less.

    I suggest Advert pro www.advertpro.com it is around $600 or so dollars. I suggest buying it now! They are coming out with 4.09 silver and that cost $1,100 but if you have the current version you get a free upgrade. Zonify uses it and we are very happy with it. It really exceeded our expectations. When you sign-up or get it please say I referred you. I get no commision but the owner and I are a good friends and I told him I would get him clients =)

    Hello aspen,

    If you are planning to start an ad serving business, I can direct you to some one who has got a domain name vAdServer.com for sale.

    Let me know if you are interested with a quote

    They are free, however, you can pay if you want full control over your ads. It is very reasonable. OrbitCycle will take over a small percentage of your ads if you use the free version, but that doesn't bother most. You get a lot of control and detailed stats.
