    We are a affiliate member of your site and were hoping if was possible to have your merchant members,create.flv or .swf ads.We are launching a new online tv network and would also enjoy providing affiliate support to your merchant account via that ad option.Could you please mention that option to your members or could you put them in contact with us for more details,thank you.

    Those merchants who are interested may contact us at musicdvd@inbox.com
    We accepting ads in flv or swf format only but will accept mpeg as well.Please make sure,you include the correct Shareasale coding specs,so we can both keep track of the ad.

    Welcome. Lets put it this way. Your the only one, not already in the .com dead pool, who has an audience willing to watch a Kwell Flash Ad.... Yahoo News had to yank theirs due to millions of reader complaints. Same response from TechTV viewers. Text and flash don't seem to mix well with the affiliate industry.

    Please note,the difference between those .com and what we offer,has to do with the delivery option,where the.com opted to "push down thier throats" these ads to its viewers without any further options,we have a delivery system which provides the option of allowing viewers to skip thru them,which is not a very effective tool for merchants,but you insert them in beginning and ending of each content or show them at random via programming,at least merchants stand a 50/50 chance to have thier ads review by a viewer(similiar to a offline tv station)We are not implying this will work out as great as it sounds,but al least it is a idea,which should be explored.After all,just because,it failed with some,ideas can be reworked for the benefit of others.

    Please note,we are a community focused network and as such it is in our best interest to provide successful merchant support,thus allowing us to keep our site still running via the commisions,we will hopefully generate.We are not in it,to make a profit,just to provide a free community service(THE WAY THE INTERNET WAS INTENDED TO BE USED,NOT AS A CORPORATE ASSAULT VEHICLE)

    Over at www.farts.com they have a short subliminal branding flash movie pushing Budweiser. Give them a try as they like flash and have an Ad budget. At ABW we had some Flash Ads, I think from UrbanScooter, in rotation. Some skateboard merchant had some and their flash intro landing page got 90% of clickers to immediately exit.

    it is in our best interest to provide successful merchant support,
    If you want to be able to do a service to merchants, you need to ditch that Communist anti-corporate attitude displayed at the end of your post. The whole idea of the internet being some big gimme-fest is fundamentally opposed to the objective of any merchant who wants to stay in business. Staying in business = making money. If we didn't want to make money we'd have founded charities instead of companies.

    I HATE flash ads and close them ASAP! I never actually look at the ad. All I look for is how to close the danged thing. Couldn't even tell you what they advertise.
