    Video ads -- has anyone tried it?
    Video ads -- has anyone tried it?

    I received this from a merchant:
    "Company X" now has video footage available for your use. We have carefully crafted several 30 second advertisements for your and your customers viewing pleasure. You can host them on your site by using the codes we have provided. With an industry leading potential 18% commission, this is an offer that you should jump on. Our goal is to make our valuable publishers very happy, and we think this will do the trick! We look forward to continuing our relationship with you.
    Would that make the page upload more slowly for a dial-up user?

    Are video ads effective for making more sales?

    Has anyone tried it? Does it add value to your pages (and commissions) or are video ads worth it?

    What should I do with Company X's video footage?

    Is this a good deal

    or not?

    So what's the deal on inserting video ads into one's pages?

    Hey you can do it yourself for free.
    HTML Code:
    <p align="Center">
    <embed src="http://www.mywebsite.com/myvideo.mpg" width="200" height="45" type="audio/mpeg" AUTOSTART="TRUE" LOOP="FALSE">
    </p>

    I have this linked to a image in a framed page, when clicked it loads the mpg and makes the page load faster this way. Just adjust the video size.

    Thanks for the tip, apex-auctions

    "Company X" has created a video advertisement and I was wondering how webmasters felt about ads that came in video form?

    "Company X" promises an 18% commission if I deliver video ads to my pages and I am curious about the experiences of other webmasters with video advertisements.

    Flash can slow your site down, just remeber if they are High speed or Dialup the same amount of info still has to be sent. A video ad can average 300k to 1+ mb. But they are appealing to the eye.

    All I would say is try it and monitor your traffic logs if you see a decrease nix it. Personaly I place these type of ad's within a frame so my main content is visible while it's downloading.

    Neil,

    Before you do that, just think for a moment about how many people will be going to your site to look for Plazan Skin Care products, and how many guys might land on your site just because they're looking for (any) Jennifer Lopez videos or (use your imagination ), but if you can handle the extra excess bandwidth for the guys, go ahead and make them happy.

    Interesting, I didn't think frames were used as much by webmasters anymore.
    I know frames were in vogue but then the use of them seemed to go on the decline.

    Looks as if frames might go on the upswing again

    Cool
    can you imagine working with your computer in your office and "welcome to the first porn site with sound" comes out of your speakers?

    Thats the point. From one pont of view its better if ad starts when you open the page, but from other way its better just to start it by myself. I think that video ad should be like paused and main message is already on and if someoen wants to see whole thing then he just presser play !!!
