Berlin (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
zanox, a global leader for performance-based online marketing, today announced the open beta launch of zanox Web Services, an innovative solution for professional Web developers and publishers. zanox Web Services offers access to a wide variety of new functions within the zanox affiliate network as well as the zanox infrastructure.
With zanox Web Services, publishers will now benefit from three key advantages in monetizing their business ideas: a new automated process for managing their interaction with zanox, specific targeting opportunities including product search, geo targeting and contextual advertisements, and the freedom to create their own innovative monetizing models such as mobile applications or widgets.
The fully automated interaction process with zanox will save publishers time and effort in their daily activities: A wide number of new functionalities allow customized statistics, program applications and most recent product data to be retrieved automatically several times per day.
With zanox Web Services, publishers will be able to specifically target their customers. New features such as product search, geo targeting and contextual advertisement now enable affiliates to use a very individual targeting approach for their business ideas.
zanox publishers are now free to use their own creativity to develop, distribute and monetize their own business model - such as Internet or mobile applications, widgets, gadgets or in-game advertising. Professional publishers can either create their own business model or choose from a wide selection of ready-to-use applications.
"With zanox Web Services we will enable our network of professional publishers to build revenue from their creativity," said Jens Hewald, CTO and founder of zanox. "It has never been easier to maximize the profitability of innovative new ideas."
zanox Web Services and its Open API technology reinforces the idea of an "open company" philosophy. By generating a system of collective intelligence and shared information among its publisher network, zanox is pushing forward with its mission to successfully monetize the Internet.
