Magnify.net, the video community site that’s been increasingly popular with affiliate marketers, is inviting site owners to participate in a beta test of its new advertising program, the Magnify Ad Share Platform, according to TechCrunch.
The AdShare Network gives site owners the ability to earn directly from their video channels, both from the network itself and by allowing users to deploy their own ad inventory.
The ads running on Magnify.net are “traditional” advertising that goes around the videos, as opposed to the overlay ads recently launched on YouTube.
Previously, Magnify.net enabled video community owners to generate revenue with ads from Google AdSense and Revver.
I touched base with Steve Rosenbaum to ask about the revolt.
“What the reporter didn’t get was that while Wayne (Porter) did push us over the edge, a lot of what we learned at Affiliate Summit was pretty critical in our thinking as well.
What I learned in Miami was that there is a huge community of smart, engaged, advertising savvy Internet entrepreneurs who are looking for ways to add video to their offerings and make money from that traffic.
Magnify.net’s decision to open our ad network is a tip of the hat to the affiliate marketing community.”
