)-- AdLizard, the global leader in self serve print advertising technologies, has expanded its platform by offering a highly configurable, onsite license or Hosted web advertising solution, to help newspaper publishers and ad networks capture a larger slice of the fast growing shift of advertising budgets from print to interactive online. In the face of tough economic pressures and consumers are spending more time online, SMB advertisers (small to medium sized business) are expanding their traditional media advertising with lower-cost digital online options that are more targeted and measurable to achieve a deeper reach in local markets.
“Newspaper publishers want their advertisers to easily implement a cross media advertising campaign encompassing print with the increasing popularity of online interactive display”, said Adrian Fittolani, General Manager of AdLizard. “In an economic downturn, advertisers are looking for greater accountability in the media they use, and ‘AdLizard for Web’ provides a simple workflow for flash banner creation, audience targeting and reporting, providing an accessible and very low cost entry to online advertising with measurable results.”
Online Interactive Display is Growing
The performance of interactive display advertising is growing rapidly. A recent report from the IAB confirms that interactive display advertising accounts for 21% revenue share, highlighting the ever-growing importance of display in the online marketing mix.
Publishers who can offer flexible solutions such as template-based self service options around online interactive display advertising can place themselves in a very competitive position by facilitating cost savings and cater for a better ROI for their advertisers.
Using ‘AdLizard for Web’ advertisers can select from a variety of ‘agency grade’ creative templates and change logos, text, images and colors. Multiple versions of an ad can be created in a single campaign, giving advertisers the ability to monitor the better performing ads and adjust their budget allocation. This creates a broader market appeal for SMB advertisers to place online ads giving Publishers a greater ability to sell their online media inventory.
Next Generation Self Service Technology
“We can offer Publishers a very modular approach in delivering self service solutions by allowing them to use their own ad serving technology, reporting, measurement and payments systems, or use our scalable modules included in the software”, says Adrian Fittolani.
