OIO Publisher Direct Give Away

OIOPublisher is the best solution for bloggers trying to sell direct advertising. Before this awesome piece of software came along, I would always recommend new bloggers use 3rd party ad networks instead of selling ads directly because you need to concentrate on producing content when you’re starting out.

What OIOPublisher automates the ad buying process so you can concentrate on blogging instead of selling. By using OIOPublisher, advertisers can order, pay for and upload their ads directly to your blog. The only thing you have to do is approve the ad. If you get a sale, then great! If not, then OIOPublisher will run ads from the ad networks or your own house ads until you do. Some of the other features include:

  • Possible to integrate the ad platform with any website that uses PHP
  • Purchase / account pages are now templated, editable within the admin area
  • Text links are now controlled via zones (like banner ads)
  • Works with PayPal and PayPal Subscription
  • Full javascript ad display support
  • Entrecard Payment option integrated

The software will work on any website that use PHP. WordPress users get an easy to install plugin. OIOPublisher Direct sells for $47 and is worth every penny. However, I have two copies to give away.

How To Enter

To enter for a chance to win one of two copies of OIOPublisher Direct, simply reply to this post. It doesn’t get easier than that! You only need to reply once. Replying multiple times won’t get you more entries. However, if you blog about this contest and link to this post, I’ll give you five more entries. I give you three more entries if you send the following tweet to your followers.

  1. I’ve been looking for a means of getting some more advertising onto my blogs and this seems like a good system for doing so. We’ll see if i win a copy, and it’s great that this easily integrates with WordPress.

    1. AverageGal says:

      I’ve also been looking at easy advertising integrations for my blogs. Right now I have them set up manually, but going to a more automated solution would simplify the process. Good luck Nate and everyone else!

      1. In for this contest! w00t!

        1. I am in for this contest too.

          1. I wonder if you could use this with a new blog. My alexa score is just ‘ok’ and I don’t have a pagerank yet. this can be kind of discouraging when you are trying to appeal to webmasters who are looking for advertising.

          2. Static says:

            Well, you don’t always have to come out with a big bang, although coming out with one might cause a bit of a frenzy in the blogosphere. Nonetheless, even if it’s a new blog, go for it.

            By the way, I’m in this John. πŸ™‚

    2. don’t mess with me..
      I am in πŸ˜€

    I am not against to get it as a gift presented by Santa.

  17. Eathan says:

    Wow.. I’ll give it a try..

  18. Muzi Mohale says:

    It would be interesting to discuss this topic further since there are loads of direct ad serving solutions around. Am currently using http://www.adbutler.com which costs money to use. Once tried http://www.openx.org however I decided against it when I discovered it not to be user friendly, really struggled to get the hang of it.

    1. Adrian Silva says:

      Yeah, good place to talk about how each of the alternatives compares.

      OIO gets great comments on http://www.johnchow.com/serve-your-own-ad-with-google-ad-manger/

  19. Twitted + Comment ! πŸ˜€ Cheers.. Hope I win =.=

  20. I better win, you loser!

  21. Kiley says:

    Tweeted John, @lenstrom. Good stuff Evil One.

  22. Four20 says:

    I see John is jumping on that 90% sales commission.

    Though I think he should have talked about that more(I mean this website is read by a ton of marketing/affiliate bloggers).

  23. Fantastic resource to look into for setting up our ads! Since I’m new, I haven’t even looked into these types of solutions as of yet, but will definitely visit the site.

    Now I just need to get all my stats up so I can even get some eyes interested in advertising on my blog…babysteps, one foot in front of the other. πŸ™‚

  24. Shawn says:

    This seems like a great program, I may have to give it a try. I currently use OPENX but it has it’s flaws.. I like the way that it integrates paypal. Maybe I will win!

  25. Count me in, John!

    Nice software btw.

  26. I’ve been wanting to give OIO a go. I put up their affiliate banner in hopes of raising the money to purchase it. *crosses fingers*

  27. wesley says:

    I’m in πŸ™‚

  28. Borekiller says:

    Thanks for helpful information

  31. Sean says:

    Woo hoo…gimme gimme gimme, please πŸ™‚

  32. ScoobySnacks says:

    And I have twittered about it

  38. Jonathan says:

    John, something’s going on with your post http://www.johnchow.com/how-to-make-2009-your-best-blogging-year/ , I guess you have been hacked or something, it shows a blank page saying Die ! Spammer Die !. Maybe its yet another of your tricks to make money.

  39. I’ve already Tweeted about the contest and will be scheduling a post later on today. I’m sure many people will enjoy this opportunity and OIOPublisher will have many new customers through this exposure.

    Thanks for the opportunity John.

    Been wanted to try this plugin but just thinking twice whether it will really bring good money..

  45. Zak Show says:

    I’m in, I have also Tweeted it as well.

  46. jtGraphic says:

    How does this compare to Google’s platform. I guess it’s nice that it’s just an up front fee as opposed to a percentage based fee like Google’s?

  47. Luke says:

    ooh count me in, I’ve been wanting to hop on board the OIO train forever!

  48. emmanuel says:

    john count me on these one.

  49. I am responding to the article on the OIP product. I sent the twitter and will put the information on my blogs at sanborns.blogspot.com and others if I get a chance. ERP-PeopleSoft-Consultants.com; chahinkapa.com/blog; cajanateam.blogspot.com. Would love to win this for my son.

    Hey this sounds much easier than the manual way that I’ve been doing things! Sign me up πŸ™‚

  65. I’m in and feeling lucky.

  66. Robert says:

    OpenX (previously OpenADs) is not only FREE it is what OIO dreams to be when it grows up.

    1. John Chow says:

      OpenX doesn’t automate the sale process. That is the key advantage OIO has over every other ad solution.

  67. I want to win too…law of attraction

  68. uwak says:

    I will try this tools….hope working better,thanks

  69. J.D. Meier says:

    I love a good raffle.

  70. Great Featured advertising plugin. I hope Openx will become better by adding a sale automation module.

  71. David says:

    I want in too!!!

  72. Don’t count me in John, because I’ve had OIOPublisher for a while now!

    I just wanted to say that this is easily the best ad software I’ve used. It makes things so much easier & for the advertisers as well. I also love the affiliate setup they have so that you can pay people to bring advertisers to your site.

  73. Erz says:

    Great! Count me in please. Thanks!

  74. i am in the contest too. Good luck everyone πŸ™‚

  75. woh! Interested..i hope i’m not too late..

  76. John D says:

    Hello John Chow (hey you have the same first name as me!),

    I’d be very keen to obtain this software, it looks fantastic. While chances are slim of winning it, you gotta be in it to win πŸ™‚ .Thanks. John

  77. Joe says:

    Looks like an excellent piece of kit, finger crossed I’m lucky enough to win a copy. Lord knows I could use the help.

    Good Luck All.

  78. Picasso says:

    I’m in on this one.

  79. Gem says:

    I should be giving this one a try. I had been using 125×125 ads direct selling and it doesn’t seem to benefit me, except to put my own ads.

    Hope I get lucky. I’ve heard about OIO publisher before but I prefer to have a free version, such as that is given in a contest.

  80. H. says:

    Great post, this is worth keeping in mind for future growth.

  81. Shawn says:

    Hey John,

    Good morning to you. I thought it was quite swift of you to use the “picture of the girl and her booty” in catching someone’s eye in sliding on over to this blog post you made. Boy you are legitimately smooth…lol


  82. Clut says:

    Sure, why not.

  83. wisdom says:

  96. Timon Weller says:

    Hey Chow,
    Looks like a good advertising program, is it google friendly with selling links.. like does it allow nofollow for links, etc..?

  97. Andy says:

    Hopefully I’ll win, that would be exactly what I need!

  98. Max says:

    I test it on sexycrack.com but its not working, why ?

  99. Andrew says:

    I’ve always wanted this plugin for use on my business blogs.

    I did read somewhere that if you didn’t have the money to buy this plugin, then you shouldn’t really be in the business, but some of us are just strapped for cash at the best of times, and buying this plugin is just way out of our budget.

    I have seen it used, and it is a good piece of software, just need shorter URL’s and I think it would be better.

  100. Andrew says:

    give it to me!
