Video Ads

Video advertising is one of the most effective and popular ad types on the Internet. Video ad is a short video that has useful information about the product or service offered by an advertiser.

So we decided to concentrate on creating a video module for our main platform. As usual, we use the latest technology to develop it.

Video Module will include two types of video advertising: in-banner and in-steam video ads.

Banner advertising is a new type of advertising that allows users of your system to place video ads in the site channels.

Video Ads

An in-Steam video ad is an ad that can appear in the video clip before the show, during the show or after the show. In-Steam video advertising can be divided into several types:

Pre- rolls – promotional video that shows ads before the main content Mid – rolls – ads displayed in the middle of main content Post- rolls – ads displayed after the main content Overlays – advertising (text ads, graphical banners, rich media and flash-banners) that is shown in parallel with the main content. Video Module of Orbit system will include an embedded player, that can be used in two types of players: JW Player and Flow Player.

In addition to the embedded player, users of the system also can use third-party video player that supports VAST standard.

We are developing a video module, taking into account not only of modern technologies and standards, but the convenience of its use for our customers that will use it in a wide variety of videos to achieve maximum results.

The next step in expanding our products would be creating ad module for mobile phones.

Stay tuned!

Conversion Tracker Plug-in

We do the best we can to keep you informed on the latest events and releases of OrbitSoft. Big news today – we released our newest product , the Conversion Tracker Plug-in for Orbit AdMarket and Orbit AdServer.

Wanna know more about it?

The concept of conversion in advertising is an indicator that shows the positive effect of ads on the website. Positive conversion can be user registration, newsletter subscription, product ordering and much more.

For example, an on line store positive conversion is the conversion of the store visitors into buyers.

Here is how the conversion is calculated – the number of visitors with a positive action, divided by the total number of website visitors, and multiplied by 100, thus, the conversion is shown as a percentage.

Conversion Tracker Plug-in

The higher the conversion, the better it is for the website owner.  For example, the conversion rates for advertisers show the effectiveness of their ads for certain product.

To main way to increase the conversion rate on your website is to use lots of banners or contextual ads, work on usability and site optimization for search engines.

With Conversion Tracker Plug-in, advertisers using Orbit AdServer and Orbit AdMarket can track the effectiveness of their ads.

Advertisers can track the effectiveness of the campaign, identify the best possible return on ad investments and manage it.

A few words about SmartPPC EVO

Today we’d like to introduce a short review of our new software – SmartPPC EVO. Our main goal was to provide an opportunity for all website owners to earn ad revenue by delivering and managing advertisements on their sites. Our developers have applied maximal effort to make it understandable and easy-to-use.

The system used in SmartPPC EVO is unique and possesses such qualities as integration and scaling. And today we may say with confidence that the basic component of the SmartPPC EVO is tested and appears to be reliable solution for advertising.

We’ve spent a long time, to make our product satisfy all standards of software creation such as requirements gathering, business modeling, design, programming and testing. We’ve achieved high quality of the software because on each development stage we’ve done quality control that fits ISO standards.

During the development robust and advanced frameworks were used. To make interfaces up-to-date our engineers widely applied object-oriented approach. In the same time, to ensure high performance and efficiency some modules were realized by low-level programming languages. Thanks to the newest technologies used in the system we’re convinced will be in demand during a long time period.

You don’t have to be a genius to start online business and earn money. Want your business to grow up? With the SmartPPC EVO you can easily make money by combing direct ad space sales to your own advertisers with getting ads from XML and JavaScript feeds.

Expanding system functional can be made by additional modules. The modularity principle used for SmartPPC EVO allows its owner to add and use necessary extensions from the list of available ones. Today we have 12 modules ready. We are working tirelessly to reach the total number of modules of 100.

6 independent solutions are planned to be released on SmartPPC EVO basis: Ad Serving, Ad Marketplace, Ad Agency, Search Solution, Directory Solution, Parking Domain Solution. Let’s briefly overview each the solutions:

Ad Serving enables sites owner to manage advertising from third-party sources and from his own advertisers on his sites.

Each of the 6 standard solutions is a set of certain modules and extensions. That’s why if a system owner wants he can create a custom unique solution buying only necessary modules for his own needs and his business goals. No doubt, you won’t manage to find any analogues among ad management systems.
