I’m glad to say that our first phase of speed optimizations is complete and feeds are drastically increased - we needed to prioritize this over everything else. Now that BLAM4 is stable, the traffic increased drastically and we outgrew the infracture so the programming was necessary. In addition, this Wednesday we are releasing a whole new user interface that completely simplifies the entire gateway process. It seems like we went a little feature crazy, but in the process we overcomplicated the entire system. The new gateway creation UI is going to focus heavily on utilization of our ad serving algorithm, making it easier for the traditional website content lockers.
BLAM Ads growth has been astounding lately: we approved thousands of new publishers in the last month and that has been motivating for our entire team to say the least. Managing the massive influxes of publishers motivates us to work even harder, to come up with more innovative ideas and to develop technology that continues to adapt with the times and changes in trends. We’ve implemented revolutionary features such as BLM.bz link shortening and BLAMCart technology, both in beta, which are being used successfully by hundreds of publishers. Every morning our account managers are faced with new challenges and we appreciate all the support we get from our publishers on our mission.
Today we are going to go over some of our content locking formats and how to utilize them:
- Flash Content Locking Gateway - By placing a single line of code on your page, BLAM Ads can automatically content lock all the flash elements. This works out perfect for movie sites and flash game sites. These sites grow virally and have been making some publishers thousands of dollars a day in commission, especially for the larger ones.
- BLM.BZ Link Shortening - Publishers have been using this as an intermediary for their download links because it entirely blocks the user from locating the end URL. Usually download visitors are a bit smarter than the average user, so utilizing the BLM.BZ link shortening technology is a perfect solution. We have (5) new templates ready to be implemented after some important programming changes that we’re getting done first.
- BLAMCart (beta) - This cart technology is in a very early beta, but it’s already attracting a whole new crowd to the network. For anyone that puts out WSO’s or other e-book formats, this innovational new content locking format will allow you to set a certain price for your product, and the user must complete set amount in offers to gain access to it.
