One such ad network is MyBid.

In short, Whenever a user opens a publisher website in his window, Another window in his browser opens in a window under the tab. Popunder ads are super cheap as compared to other formats and work great in particular niches.
· Widget Notification
Widget notification is a display advertising format that combines all the advantages of In-Page and Calendar. Huge volumes of traffic, a strict filtering system, as well as a unique display mechanics allow you to find a high-quality and interested audience.
You may have seen ads on news websites or blogs that look like part of the content. Those ads are called native ads, and native advertising is one of the most powerful advertising formats, especially if you are looking for quality traffic. In my tests, native ads had higher conversion rates compared to Facebook traffic, and it was only second to google search traffic in terms of quality. You can download my free native advertising guide if you want to learn more about native advertising.

Probably one of the most commonly used and oldest advertising formats on the internet. Banner Ads format helps you display your banners across the advertising platforms publisher website network.
In-stream videos are a rapidly growing ad format these days. Video ads help advertisers evoke customer emotions and help them visualize the product or service they are offering, Helping customers make a quick decision.

Now that you have loaded your funds into the account, You should be connected with your account manager by now through skype and the next step is to prepare your tracking link for the offer and send it off to your account manager.
You are supposed to send the following :

- Main image 720×480 JPG PNG
- Title (no more than 30 characters)
- Description (no more than 30 characters)
- 3-5 creative variations
For the purpose of this article : I choose a VPN offer from yellana network with a default prelander .
Set up tracker
To create tracking links you can find default template for MyBid on almost all of the tracking platforms, For Bemob I simply selected the tracking template and added MyBid as traffic source , All the details were already present in the template so i didn’t have to do anything except choosing my bid from the template.
I sent all the details to my account manager, I asked my AM to use the best performing creatives they have as I was too lazy to come up with my own ( That’s where fully managed ad networks shine to offer you everything so you can be lazy 😛)
The Bottom Line
Unlike other self-managed/self-serve advertising platforms, MyBid is a fully managed advertising platform. Unlike self-managed platforms where you have to choose and select the targeting, find and optimize creatives, set bids, and do all the campaign optimizations, Fully managed platforms remove all the headaches by offering you a completely managed service.
It means you don’t have to worry about optimizing placements, setting bids or spending time creating campaigns. Instead, spend your time sourcing high-converting offers with reasonable conversion rates and plugging them in with MyBid, Leaving all the headache of managing and optimizing your campaign on MyBid’s experienced account managers who work as your media buyers.
I came across many people who are skeptical of fully managed platforms; however, In the last three years, I have worked with many fully managed advertising platforms and never faced any issues, which is one of the reasons I have a powerful team when it comes to market research, technical stuff and other things. Still, media buying is mainly done through account managers.
Another helpful thing I found is that account managers understand their own platform very well, making it easy for them to launch killer campaigns that produce results. It is a perfect solution if you want to scale your campaigns fast.
MyBid is a unique platform and one of the first networks to open their fully managed platform to all the affiliates, Making it very easy for the affiliates to launch campaigns as you no longer need media buyers. To work with MyBid, you only need a good converting offer and a great angle. Rest you can leave on their team to optimize and scale your campaigns for you.
They have good traffic volumes in Tier 1 geos, Latin America, and Asia. Additionally, with the minimum deposit requirement of $100/- MyBid is the only network which allows affiliates with low budgets to enjoy the benefits of fully managed platforms. Finally, I found their support team to be very responsive, and their account managers are quick to contact and very responsive, which I love about any company.
