Text Ad Exchanges (TAEs) are a way to promote your product or program online with minimal expense. They allow you to pick & choose which product/service you want to learn more about based on the headline and the ‘Text Ad’ that follows.
Placing an ad is relatively easy. You just need to join the text ad program, click some ads to earn credits or use promo codes for free credits and solos that can be found by going to programs like Exclusive Promo Codes and Advertising Blowout.
Once you have earned credits then log in and look in the left column (on most programs) to find a tab that says ‘Advertising’, ‘Submit Ads’, or something of that nature.
You can earn credits by reading other peoples ads and clicking on the credit link. Then you will need to exchange those credits for specific advertising like solo ads or banner advertising. Once that is done then scroll down toward the bottom of the page (if you are still in the advertising section) and click on the type of ad you wish to place.
For this example I’m going to use a solo ad. You will need to insert a headline (subject line) that grabs attention.
Next you will need to add some text to get even more interest and…
Lastly you will need to insert your url (the link) to your product or service. Or better yet – link to a capture page.
Once your ad is the way you want it then click the send or submit button. Your ad is on the way for others to view. Some programs require admin approval while others will send automatically.
- Most TAEs do not allow urls in the body of the ad
- Promo codes are usually entered toward the top of the advertising section (some may have a special promo code section)
- Some admins will include promo codes within the site
To organize your ad sites and be able to place the same ads in multiple programs consider VMP.
