Advertise.com Review

Advertise.com Logo

Founded in 2001, Advertise.com is an advertising network with multiple operations and is one of over a hundred such programs we review on experienced-people.co.uk.

Advertise.com has a sizable ad inventory that is comprised of campaigns running per-click (CPC) and per-action (CPA) commission models. The network's inventory is global, with a definite focus on US audiences, and includes several exclusive offers as well as many offers found in other networks too. Rates are competitive and decent, especially for their exclusive offers.

Advertise.com offers three types of advertisement creatives. Firstly, the network offers banners which are available for almost every offer. Their banners are highly customizable and beautifully varied. Secondly, apart from banners, they offer email advertisements along with a whole range of tools to monetize newsletters and mailing lists. Finally, Advertise.com offers sponsored search feeds which are also extensively customizable.

The network's support is decent but not easily reachable outside the dashboard, while their reporting and control tools are plain but certainly not bad. Some parts of the dashboard/interface might seem a bit dated but the network has recently improved and updated many of their tools; a good sign of progress coming from a network that's more than 10 years old.

All in all, Advertise.com is a well-established and trustworthy advertising network. Their inventory is satisfactory (especially for US-targeted websites), their system is tried and tested and many of their operations have been recently updated to cope with today's online reality.
