Aniket is awesome.

I have been in the tech space for 30 yrs but have not had to actually do development work for the last 20yrs. My current project has made it necessary (Happily) for me to start developing again and I was very pleased to see how far the open source community has come because it is the future of tech. One particular standout is Techjoomla in that they have some very creative,innovative and useful extensions that are speeding up my development time and lowering my cost. Social ads is one of those extensions that meets its description and is very valuable in commercial applications.

Pros
Outstanding pricing configurations for ads and the management of ad zones

Easy to install and integrates with Joomla seamlessly

Easy to configure by following the instruction

Detailed documentation that is easy to follow

Support
Besides their useful extensions their support team was OUTSTANDING and in particular I have to shine the light on ANIKET who supported me on Invitex, Social Ads and acted as an intermediary with the Broadcast support person who was also good and responsive.

As a veteran of tech, I know that everything doesn't always work perfectly so the key is support not only for your project but more importantly it is the key to the growth and success of opensource.

Techjoomla and ANIKET are excellent examples of the future of opensource and I will buy more extensions from them in the future and highly recommend Social Ads.

These guys know the meaning of true technical support. They will help answer questions and solve problems and if all else fails they will go to your site and help identify and fix the issue. I cant say enough about their true customer service.

support is there whenever you want.
very good extension, not expensive if you calculate that you will get money from that advertising and it will let you be more calm, no need to worry about making banners, the client choose everything alone,you just wait your money, highly recommended :-)

This extension for joomla is just what I was looking for, in continuous development and a great support! The price is great considering the potential of the component, I recommend it to those looking for a permanent solution to monetize using advertising system identical to that of Facebook.

I must point out first, that I am NOT an affiliate nor a partner of TechJoomla. Yet?! Wink, Wink... Nudge, Nudge. Kidding, I'm Kidding. lol =)

However, Regardless of the few negative reviews. The team at TechJoomla is one in a million for Development and Customer Service! Constant feature Updates, Bugs get squashed very quickly and Tech alteration questions are answered within 24hrs (if not the moment you refresh your email's and support tickets).

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:

People Suggest
SocialAds
Broadcast
InviteX
Email Beautifier
Profile Import
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!!

I would like to mention first that it is not the first extension that I purchased from TechJoomla.com but I am also using Invitex for about a year now.

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.

really a good component, with only tho defect:
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..

feature are interesting i just think paying for this is not make sense. many free plugins make more sense - also what happens if no one buy the ad space?
Owner's reply

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..

Excellent choice for adding semi or fully automated advertising to your website. The developers stand behind this component and are ready, willing and able to offer their assistance. Special thanks to their support staff like Mr. Dipti for the time they spent until all my issues were resolved.

The extension is easy to install and to configurate. It exactly works like it is discribed, so no surpises. If you read the documation carefully it is easy to get the extension working!

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.

I have just joined the joomla site solely to write a review on this extension. I have downloaded, installed and played around with over 100 extensions for clients and myself and as you can see this is my first review. If you have a community based site and you want to make advertising pay and not be bogged down with heavy maintenance, then you must get SOCIALADS.

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.

Installs in one step. I got immediate support (One has to read the documentation well, to get all features activated), very useful statistics. Many ad options, size and content can be adopted and created. Will run in most templates.
Even, if you plan to have only free ads and/or ads created by an admin, this is a very useful extension.

Thanks.

As expected, this extension is seriously sweet. This must be the cheapest investment in the whole extensions directory for someone with a Jomsocial setup. Set this up in 5 mins, easy as pie.

Thanks guys, great job!
