SocialAds is Amazing! You cannot ask for a better advertising component. And somehow they continue to improve it with new features every 2-3 months. If you are looking for an ad component for your site or you are a developer and have clients that need to generate revenue with ad space, then this component is your stop! Besides being very cheap for everything it does, it's also too easy to set up and has API and Source Code to manipulate it into exactly what you and or your clients could ever need and want.
I currently subscribe to and use many of there components on my Joomla/JomSocial site. Such as:
J!MailAlerts with JomSocial Plugin
JBolo! - Chat for Joomla and JomSocial
And I am eyeing there Like/Dislike component right now =) I won't spam there review page with a link to my site. But take my word for it, test one product of there's. Like a new tattoo, you will Itch for more!
Thanks you guys!
Can't wait for more Great TechJoomla Stuff!!
This is mainly to mention about their support, they are an active team that always answer to queries within a maximum of 1 business day, which is normal support time frame for businesses, people looking for instant support on request are not 'normal' because everyone needs to have some rest at some time of the day!
It is now about a week that I decided to invest in the purchase of SocialAds for the development of our new restaurant guide website, as every extension, we need first to understand the main functionality of the extension, follow installation instructions, set-up all required features prior to get it running etc. If after following these steps, we still have some issues, then, we request support from the developer and I must say that till now, the support, as usual, was perfect.
Just a simple comment about the review that someone posted regarding SocialAds, about the fact that what happened if ad spaces remain blank? Well, as a website administrator, it is our role to maintain ad spaces, also, it is our role to make our website known to the general public to get visits on our website and make people interest to advertise on our website, if we do not have any visitor, of course, ad spaces will remain blank for life!
SocialAds provides us all necessary features to run a full advertising website, latest version even include video ads, which is more than perfect, to fill in blank ad spaces, we can simply create sample ads and place them in zones to give visitors an overview what and how they can advertise on the website.
Making the difference between a non-commercial and a commercial extension is so easy but been using Joomla for quite a long time now and exploring many available extensions, till now, none of the available 'free extensions' and even other commercial extensions can be compared to SocialAds since its features are unique.
The only issue we encounter with SocialAds is that here in Mauritius (our country), we do not have access to payment options (credit card) such as Paypal, 2Checkout etc. that are integrated with SocialAds, we inform the developer about it and they inform us that new payment plugins shall be available within the next 6 months, we can for the meantime use the integrated Jomsocial point system to make people purchase points through our shopping cart and update their points within their profile and use these points for their advertising needs.
We have been making a honest and loyal review to SocialAds, as we did for all other extensions that we have used so far and we definitely recommend SocialAds to other Joomla lovers as it definitely worth it and the minimum subscription fee asked by the developer is really the minimum they could asked for such a wonderful extension, thanks guys for your wonderful work.
1 it's not integrated with other components different from cb and JomSocial.
2 inability to sell pre-packed packages.
for the first problem i can suggest to give to the users (or to the admin) the possibility to make the banner depends from the URL (in this way should be possible have different banner for different parts of the site - ex: different category of ads manager)
apart of these things the component works good, i've bought it and im fairly satisfied.
if these two features should be implemented, SocialAds should be the best ads manager ever made!
Hi Yonkie !
1. We integrate with quite a few other extensions & SocialAds can also be used without any Social extension. I suggest you look at the latest version & feature list
2. Ads on specific URLs. You can easily achieve this using Zones & Modules. Plus using advanced module manager
3. Packages- You can expect that in upcoming versions. But generally we feel the current approach is more flexible..
Have you actually used the extension ? The 3 stars seem a little unfair :(
SocialAds is a full Advertisement management system for Joomla offering the most advanced Advertisement platform in the market as of now. With extensible targetting including Geo, Social & custom as well Zones & Ads in Emails.
If no one buys Ad Space, we have the option to let you display Affiliate & Google Ads to use the space till you get your own Ads. There is no other free extension available that gives you all this..
Thanks tasoulis for your kind words ! We aim at making SocialAds the best & most flexible advertising Choice for Joomla ! P.S. Thats Miss. Dipti ;)
Very powerful, versatile, and comprehensive. Many options,extendable with plugins to cover your customized needs, so you can find your own solution.
Support is superb. Thank you for the extension.
I had a problem and submitted a ticket to the support. They answered me a few hours later and also after I react they answered after a few minuts, thats what I call a professional support. They also fixed the problem with given admin details for me.
I'm happy that I chose this extension.
It is so much easier to explain to clients that they are getting FAR more value for money by targeting their Ads and on top of that, SocialAds virtually makes it hands free to maintain them.
I am sold and the support has been fantastic. There is nothing worse than paying for something and then the seller dissappears. These guys have been extremely helpful.
Even, if you plan to have only free ads and/or ads created by an admin, this is a very useful extension.
Thanks for the great component!
Thanks so much for your review ! SocialAds supports Social Targetting for CB As well now !
Installs effortlessly and although it required some modification to suit my template and custom profiles it was completely configured and working within a few hours.
Thanks a lot guys great extension, great support!!
worked out, but the level of response and customer service to resolve them in an expedited manner has been simply refreshing (even with being in different countries). The developers are top notch and more than capable of making this component to be one of the best value-add solutions for increasing revenue and satisfaction to both advertisers and community members. The installation is a no-fuss, straight-forward effort and has had no compatibility issues with any other extensions on my site. I would happily pay above what is being charged for this component, especially as the product road map matures providing even more functionality. Highly recommended.
