I have never liked adsense from Google. I guess it works though :) .
I am definitely not an expert in the choices and players in the field, but this recently funded company looks great for small businesses.
Launched in October, AdReady has developed an online library of about 600 prefabricated display ads in categories such as real estate, education and travel. Customers choose an ad, customize it and then — with AdReady’s help — launch it into the ad networks from Google and Yahoo’s Right Media.
So far, about 1,000 companies — ranging from plumbers to painters to major airlines like Alaska Air — have signed up for the service. The ad-creation tools are free to use, with AdReady getting paid when a client decides to set a budget for the campaign. AdReady takes a 20 percent commission on the campaign.
This is an idea I would have invested in for sure.
People are not moving offline so the tools will just get better for both surfers and advertisers.
If you try this, let me know what you think.
