If you run a small new age business, you can advertise in the TSN social advertising system for as little as 50¢ a click. Just like Facebook, except that all the readers you're advertising are targeted with interests in personal growth, spirituality, health and sustainable, empowered living. Plus, you can geo-target your ad so you only reach local prospects.
To start right away, just CLICK HERE, otherwise you can read the getting started guide below!
Getting Started with Social Advertising
1. Create your Ad
Users can create ads using this form below, accessible via the menu for TSN members. The user is given the option to enter the site URL for the ad, the Ad title, body and image. A preview is shown as to how the ad will be displayed in the module to the other users.
You can also target your ad based on the profile of the users you wish to include in your ad campaign. The estimated reach count for the ad will be displayed. This will give you an estimate for how many people will be able to see your ad.
Finally, set your desired pricing. The Ads can be either Per Click or Per Impression... and soon we'll add Per Sale commissioning as well. Enter the number of credits you want to buy i.e. the number of impressions or clicks. Below it, you should be able to see the amount you need to pay. Select the payment gateway and click on Review Ad to complete your ad purchase.
2. Manage your Ad
In this view, you should be able to see a list of all the ads that you have created and (ver 2.6 onwards) statistics in the form of line chart (interactive) for all your ads for the previous month. Additionally you can also see the overall total number of clicks and impressions and the clicks trough impression ratio (CTR).
The columns show the Ad zone, the type of Ad (Clicks/ Impressions/Unlimited/Alternate), Credits Available, Impressions Statistics, Clicks Statistics, C.T.R (Clicks Through Impressions Ratio), Active (Here you can publish/unpublish the ad), the Admin approval status, the Payment Status and the Ignores for the Ad.
There is also a "zone filter" added, so that you can target your ads for a specific zone within TSN. There are two buttons added for create ad for creating an Ad and delete ad which easily allows you to delete the selected ads.
3. Your Ad Summary
If you click on Manage on the above screen, you reach the Ad summary view where you will be shown a statistical summary of your current Ad. You will also be provided options such as Edit Ad, Delete Ad, Buy More Credits.
For the statistics, a line chart and a pie chart are shown which shows the impressions/click statistics for the last month. (ver 2.6 onwards) There is a date filter which allows you to set the duration for the satisictis of the ad.
The payment history tab shows the various orders that you have placed against your ad.
4. A Few other Notes
If you are a teacher, can also promote your workshop or challenge you as well. Just write to us and ask for your Workshop and Challenge promotion and advertising toolkit... we provide a free credit for all our teachers and workshop leaders, all you have to do is ask!
Also, we have requirements for your ad to be tasteful, revelant and uplifting. Failure to comply with these requirements could lead to suspension of your ability to advertise on our network.
