Advertising Management System Tour

The algebrahelp.com Advertising Management System is a custom application which gives us unique ad serving capabilities.  The system can embed the code for an ad directly into webpages with the advantage that ads load with the rest of the page.  The result is that ads are more effective because they are presented to visitors for a longer time than with similar ad serving methods.

Because our Advertising Management System was developed in house, we are able to extend its capabilities to meet needs that are unique to our clients.  We can provide special features which may be necessary to a specific advertiser, or a specific campaign.

In addition to providing advanced ad serving capabilities, our system provides advertisers with detailed reporting which includes views, clicks, cost, and other data.  The reports are generated in real time, with sensitive data protected by SSL.  The screenshots below show sample reports generated by a fictitious user, "user@example.net" for her company, "example.net".

Account Home Page

Advertiser Account Page Screenshot

User@example.net has been granted access to the "example.net". The account home page shows that this account currently has two ads running, one which is near completion. A quick summary of each of each campaign is shown with several metrics.

Campaign Name: A name provided for convenient identification of a campaign.
Start Date: The date that the ad began running.
End Date: The date that the ad ended, or [N/A] when the ad is still running.
Views: The number of times that an ad has been viewed so far.
Views Quota: The number of times that an ad was clicked on, with the user being redireced to the client website.
Clicks: The number of clicks on the ad.
Clicks Quota: A limit on the number of clicks that an ad campaign may receive. The campaign will end when this number of clicks is reached. If "[none]" is indicated, then the number of clicks is unlimited.
CTR: Click-Thru Ratio. The percentage of ad views that result in clicks. Example: a ctr of 3% indicates that for every 100 times an ad has been shown, 3 clicks are recorded.
Accrued Cost: The cost of the ad campaign so far.
