The Commodity Ad Network Brings Together
Alt-Media Websites, Advertisers, and Website Visitors

How Do Alt-Media Websites Benefit?

We feel strongly about the alt-media message and freedom of speech. We support alt-media websites (a.k.a. content creators) by much higher ad revenues than the large ad networks. To early-bird content creators we offer up to $1,000 sign-up bonus.

Content creators will also be able to promote their own websites within the ad network at preferential prices, thus utilizing the network effect and bringing more traffic to their websites.

Our goal is to become the gold standard among ad networks. We will support our content creators to make most of the potential of their website layout and content.

How Do Advertisers Benefit?

We provide advertisers with the opportunity to promote their brands, products, and services to an extremely focused audience. By displaying ads across a number of niche websites, advertisers can build brand awareness and trust.

We aim to cater to small and medium advertisers in our niche markets. There is no bidding mechanism, so advertisers with large budgets don’t have the upper hand. Our ad network is likely to deliver higher conversion rates with no waste.

Our goal is to create a network of very high quality niche websites which attract a lot of high-value targeted traffic.

How Do Website Visitors Benefit?

The Commodity Ad Network offers 100% privacy without compromises. Website visitor metadata are safe with us. We don’t collect and sell any metadata ever.

We work with vetted advertisers, thus making sure that only highly relevant ads are displayed on our content creators’ websites. We don’t allow pop-up ads, automatic sound-on ads, and similarly annoying ads in our ad network.

We also try to help our advertisers create ads that are pleasing to look at while retaining high conversion value.

Stages of the Commodity Ad Network

In the initial stage, our goal is to set up our own adserver platform which will serve ad banner campaigns to our content creators’ websites. This stage will be rolled out in January 2018.

In the next stage, we will be creating our own search engine focused on alt-media content.

In the following stages, we plan to set up a social media platform as well as a video platform. Content creators will be able to set up their own channels and publish videos without us restricting their free speech.

We will use our adserver platform to serve ads on all of these platforms as well. All our services will follow our philosophy of 100% privacy and zero censorship.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will be the ad network profitable?

According to our calculations, the Commodity Ad Network can become a profitable business with 300 participating content creator websites and 60 participating advertisers. At these levels, we can provide benefits to all involved parties, so that everyone’s self interest is satisfied, including our own profit motive.

What benefits does the ad network provide to content creators?

The first 300 content creators who sign a binding agreement with the Commodity Ad Network, will receive a sign-up bonus worth up to $1,000 USD.

Each content creator who signs a binding agreement also receives a minimum monthly revenue target. According to our calculations, the minimum monthly revenue target should be at least twice as much as a content creator currently receives from the largest ad networks. This revenue can never be lower, only higher after additional revenue comes in from newly signed up advertisers.

Content creators are also able to promote their websites within the network at preferential half-off prices, thus utilizing the network effect and bringing more traffic to their own websites.

What benefits does the ad network provide to advertisers?

Niche advertiser are given the ability to promote their brands, products, and services to an extremely focused and targeted consumer base. Our networked websites’ visitors are highly receptive to great deals, offers, and possibilities in a variety of niche markets. This means that on one hand, the expended ad budget is more likely to create higher conversion rates in comparison to a serve all large ad network. And, on the other hand, there is zero waste of the expended ad budget, as a gold coin dealer’s ad will never show up on a fitness center’s site in our ad network. By displaying ads across a large number of similar niche websites, an advertiser can build brand awareness and trust.

Price-wise, the larger ad view packages an advertiser buys, the lower the price per thousands of ad views. Since we do not employ a price bidding mechanism, advertisers with larger budgets have no upper hand in our ad network. We aim to cater to the specific needs of small and medium advertisers in our preferred niche markets.

What benefits does the ad network provide to website visitors?

The Commodity Ad Network offers 100% privacy without compromises. The IP addresses of website visitors, their online behavior, and other similar information are safe with us. We don’t collect and/or sell any metadata ever.

We only cooperate with vetted advertisers, thus making sure that only highly relevant ads are displayed on our content creators’ websites. We don’t allow pop-up ads, automatic sound on ads, and similarly annoying ads in the Commodity Ad Network.

We also try to help our advertisers to create ads that are pleasing to look at while retaining a high conversion value.

How and when do I receive my monthly revenue?

Ad revenue is paid out on an individual timeline, depending on the date of on-boarding of the content creator.

For example, if a content creator is on-boarded January 6, their first month in the network is calculated from January 6 till February 6. They will then receive their first monthly payout after 14 days, i.e. on February 20.

May content creators use other ad serving systems on their websites as well?

Yes, content creators can use the Commodity Ad Network as well as any other ad network of their choice at the same time. We do not require any kind of exclusivity from our content creators.

However, we consider it a smart move to use our system because of all the benefits we provide over any other ad network out there.

Can I disallow a specific advertiser to advertise on my website?

No, this option is not available.

However, should you have concerns about the ethics of an advertiser or their products or services, we encourage you to notify us. You can use our feedback form for this purpose.
