Tell me you are not going to stuff your blog with audio ads?

Audio ad is obtrusive.

Audio ad is annoying.

Audio ad is forcing us to listen to shits we don’t need to hear.

Audio ad is just plain desperado way of advertising.

Audio ad sucks.

Period.

I signed up for some audio ad because the paid post I wrote required me to sign up as a member. So, I have been receiving a lot of mails talking about ‘their soon to be launched awesome’ audio ads. I follow the updates because it will somehow make good blog topic.

When a company has to write that many mails before they are even launched, you know they are noobs. You know the company will shut down within a few months. You know it is not something you want to put on blogs that have a certain standard. So, tell me you are not going to join the mob of noobs to place audio ads on your blog.

And whoever promotes it with enticing and misleading titles like ‘Earn money now, you don’t need to do a thing’ to earn affiliate fees, I want to say ‘You are a loser’. Please, spare the blogosphere from annoying audio ads. When I want to read a blog, I will read it. Not listen. I have music plug into my ears and I hate it when other sound farked it up. If a blog has one of those embeded music, I will leave it immediately. Unless of course, they are teens bloggers who write personal blogs, then, it is understandable.

    If the audio ads are paying via auto play like voxant had auto play on their videos, this could be a viable income earner, just not on blogs that people subscribe to or visit on a regular basis.

    I could see how audio ads would work well with interstitials or “click to play” blocks.

    The problem with audio ads seems to be setting user expectations as it will be a great battle to overcome this expectation.

    When i saw Pay per play ads first tout was: “How much time until system goes off?”. I don’t see future in such PPP ads.

    This company has said that they are working in conjunction with a top search engine but will not say who it is.
    The marketing hype said earn for every visitor to your site … this is not true.
    They are now getting affliliates to work for them selling advertising and even making banners.
    I Think this is a devious business venture as the marketing has been based on half truths.
    If they could only get their act together it might have worked but a quick check around the net will find many affiliates leaving this program.
