Some Great TTZ Media Integration

TTZ Media has been live for only a few days and already I’ve seen some great integration into affiliate members’ websites. I figure I’ll use this post to show off some the techniques a few of the affiliates are using to highlight TTZ Media ads.

Integration Is The Key

TTZ Media ads are no different than Google ads in the sense that you have to make them look like part of the site to get maximum results. This is why we’ve made the ads so customizable. We are the only ad network that allows affiliates to control the font style and hover link color. Check out the integration by these affiliates.

Embedding The Ads Into The Article

TTZ Media works best if you embed the ads right into the article. This is especially true if your article matches the very item the ad is showing. You can see a great example of this in the review of the ATP Electronics Pro Mx 4GB SD card by Futurelooks. Futurelooks made the ad look like part of the article by labellings it as “Real-Time Price and Stock Check.” A reader would see this as more of a service than an ad. Here’s another examples by Blue Tomorrow and Think Computers.

The Shopping Guide

Don’t have a product on hand to actually review and write about? Try creating a shopping guide and recommend some products that you have used in the past. TTZ Media is ideal for shopping guides because it’ll show your readers where to buy the products.

You can see an example of a shopping guide using TTZ Media ads over at OCIA.net. Their Performance System Buying Guide, Mainstream System Guide and Budget System Guide has done very well for them. The cool thing is as new and better products come onto the market, you can add them and update the guide for an instant new article.

We’re coming into the holiday shopping season and people loves shopping ideas. Why not make use TTZ Media to create a holiday gift guide? You can see an example of last year’s gift guide at The TechZone. I know a few affiliates will be making Black Friday guides using TTZ Media ads. The list can be endless. Thanksgiving gift guide, Christmas gift guide, gifts for dad, gifts for students, gifts to kiss and makeup, etc.

When TTZ Media ads are used as part of a shopping guide or embedded as part of a review, the eCPM can get as high as $12. It goes through the roof if you can get the review/guide to the front page of Digg or Slashdot. If you haven’t taken advantage of it yet, you should.

    I am sure with the ability of changing your font style and hover color, publishers will appreciate it better. 😉

    1. Haha, exactly. I just joined — I didn’t realize it was out until a few minutes ago. ::turns red::

  2. Definitely some great tips

  3. I have to say Planet Xbox is the best one I definitely wouldn’t have thought to goto some of the sites for games if i hadn’t of seen that advertisement.

    1. Cheers man, and thanks John for the link!

    Great stuff and good ideas 🙂

    Thank you for the post since it helps my site’s integration also!

  6. Steve M says:

    Looks like a good system, not as clunky as widgetbucks and integrates well into the page. Recommended if you are writing reviews for technical items or clothes etc.

    I’m glad that I can integrate TTZ ad into Adsense so I don’t need to paste the whole codes every time when I want to add a TTZ ad into a page. Good job, John. 😀

  8. John, I signed up when you first announced it was open to members, but I haven’t heard back yet.

    1. John Chow says:

      I see the ads on your blog.

  9. Hey John,

    I like what your doing with TTZ Media. I’ll look more into it and I’m leaning into signing up.

    Cheers,
    Carlo Selorio

  10. I wish I had the right niche blog for you ad network. Maybe one of these days I’ll be able to use it.

  11. drt says:

    I’m not sure why I can place Google Adsense ad and let the text run down the left of right side of it dependent on whether I align it left or right; I don’t know why, when I use the 250 x 250 TTZ ad, it didn’t let me do that. The ad shows up on top and the whole paragraph then move down. Did I do something wrong?

    1. John Chow says:

      Try enclosing it with a div tag. Email me if you don’t understand and I’ll send you a sample code.

      1. drt says:

        Please send me the code. I tried to put the div between the main code but it didn’t work. Thanks. I’ll change it tomorrow evening after work.

      2. drt says:

        John, I have emailed you the code. Where is the sample? It looks ugly compared to Google Adsense. I’m waiting for your sample code and thanks.

  12. Dane Cook says:

    I figured I would post and let everyone see how I integrated 😀

  13. James Wilcox says:

    Only reason I haven’t joined is because TTZ doesn’t really fit with the blogs I run since they aren’t Tech related.

  14. I just implemented it into my site. It looks good… I’ll have to tweak it a bit more tomorrow when I have more time. I hope the impressions convert well. 😎

  15. Check out this integration

    and it’s getting better!

  16. James says:

    Adbrite also allows to change ad appearance by CSS, font, color, you name it!

  17. Domtan says:

    These ads look extremely good. If you have a gadget blog, then placing these ads at the foot of each post will work wonders.

    John, are these ads only limited to displaying three price compressions per product, or one can increase/decrease this?

  18. drt says:

    One more ‘bug’ John. If I use Adsense plugin, I don’t need to worry that when I edit something, TTZ ad would disappear. Every time after I edited it, all the code lines wrap up into a paragraph and the ad didn’t show up. That’s why I was so happy yesterday when I could use the adsense plugin. But since I need to add the to the code, I tried to paste the codes in to the code editor but again, after saving it, the ad did not show up since all the lines wrapped together like a paragraph. Please send me the new code John. The one that I could place it in adsense plugin. Thanks.

    I need to add the (div) pair to the code

  20. Matthew says:

    Right now I have them in a couple of places on my site, but nothing targetted yet. Tonight I will be searching actual products that I have mentioned (not concept ideas and crazy things that I also write about) and will then be adding TTZ Media ads to each of those posts.

  21. marius sescu says:

    Interesting ads!
    Maybe i’ll try them too!

  22. my integration is doing quite well for me so far…better than adsense anyway 😛

    Technology Blog

  23. TTZ Media looks great when integrated right, maybe I should sign up.

  24. Steve D says:

    I have not fully integrated the ads into my site but they are performing very well. Much better than widgetbucks did!

    When will the onsite FAQ be updated? I have so many questions that are not answered. Is TTZMedia CPC or CPA or a mixture of the two?

    1. John Chow says:

      TTZ Media is CPC.

  25. Wow John great work with the ttz media, I can see your evil 😈 empire spreading 😆

    Good Luck

    Vijay

  26. Googlelady says:

    I will try them soon with one “future” project.

  27. i’ll be installing the code to my blog tomorrow, i’ll track it and see how it’s work since auction ads not really working out for me.

  28. squaretan says:

    CPC = Cost per click right? So it is something like google adsense?
    Anyway, i am not verified already for TTZ! Ill install it asap! Thanks John Chow my guru for blogging. You Made it easier and happen for me. :mrgreen:

  29. Albert says:

    Cheers John, thanks for the link. You are the best!!

  30. Yup, very similar to auctions ads. You can check out the ad layout, it’s cool with it rating i think

    I also signed up to TTZ media on my site, at first I chose to keep it low profile, however I have now chosen to place a small ad in selected posts. Thanks John!
