These are text adverts which appear in the chat area of our traffic exchanges – StartXchange, ILoveHits, Sweeva, and ThumbVu chat? They appear a few times every hour so every member chatting sees your latest promotion.
How It Works:
1. You bid for your advert to get seen in StartXchange, ILoveHits, Sweeva, and ThumbVu chat for 24 hours.
2. Bidding is made using CTP Tokens and the highest bidder is the person who gets their ad seen.
3. To make a bid then log into CTP and go here: I Want To Bid For Chat Ads
4. On the page that opens, you will be able to see the last six successful Chat Ads bids (Top Tip: Use this information to get a feel for how many tokens were needed for recent successful bids.)5. Next you will see six spots where you can bid for one (or more) of the next six days. If there are already bids for these days then they will be shown. Note that the page also tells you when the bidding ends for the next day’s advert.6. Click “Make Bid” for the day(s) you would like your ad shown and you will see a box which looks like this:
Under “Ad URL” place the link for the URL you want people to visit when they click on your advert.
Under “Ad Text” place the text you would like to appear on your Chat Ad
In the box marked “Bid” you will see that a suggested amount is already filled in. If you are happy with that press the “Bid” button at the bottom of the screen. If you want you can change it to any value you choose, as long as this value is not lower than the minimum bid value shown, before pressing the “Bid” button to submit your bid.
7. If a member outbids you, your tokens will be returned to you and you will be informed that you have been outbid so that you can bid again! Whoever has the highest bid gets the chat ad! It is as simple as that.
Real Life Example:
In the example above, you can see the Chat Ad on the bottom in blue. The interesting thing is the discussion above…everyone is talking about the advert which has just appeared. So if they are talking about the ad then they are looking at it and if they are looking it then you can be sure that some are also clicking on the link to find out more.
