Lynnwood, WA (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
Epicenter Network, a pioneer in the Internet marketing and advertising space, today announced the debut of display advertising as a revenue-generating addition for users of its free DM2 site development platform. The online service, found at http://dm-2.com, is now one of the most comprehensive and lucrative means for domain owners and site publishers to quickly realize income from their Web sites.
DM2 is a proprietary service that pays site developers to quickly and easily build out content-rich Web destinations. The service offers over 250 page template combinations as well as instructions for customizing domains with unlimited pages, content and a sitemap. DM2 requires no software purchases or other fees; what's more, DM2 will host the publisher's site at no cost.
With DM2, online entrepreneurs can quickly leverage the power of affiliate marketing and online advertising to generate real and sizable income. Through a revenue sharing arrangement that favors the site owner, DM2 pays commissions by connecting sites with legitimate advertisers matched to each site's content. Before the debut of display advertising, DM2 income was produced solely when visitors clicked through to advertiser sites--but now, affiliates can also be paid for the ad impressions generated by their Web sites, whether or not the visitor clicks on a link.
"Display advertising is still an essential part of advertising budgets, even in this economy. With the debut of display ads within DM2, we're leveraging this as a way for our members to maximize their income," said Smokey Burns, CEO of DM2 parent company Epicenter Network. "We want DM2 to be the best Web building destination for people looking to make money online."
DM2's new display advertising option is available to both current and new publishers, and ads can be included on a Web site at any time. Three sizes of ads--728x90, 350x250, and 160x600--are available, and ads can be placed on any page.
Display ads within DM2 are made available according to the product or subject category selected by the publisher at the time the publisher sets up a new campaign. For example, a site about NASCAR would fall into the automotive category. After DM2 examines the content to verify its appropriateness for the category, appropriate ads will then be automatically displayed.
In addition to ads that are supplied by DM2, site publishers are free to sell their content inventory directly to an advertiser and serving those ads on their site. Such ads are independent of the DM2 platform and all commissions are earned by the affiliate.
"DM2 is in great demand by online advertisers, and that interest continues to grow. Clearly it's our commitment to the needs of advertisers, as well as affiliates, that has made DM2 one of the elite affiliate networks," said Burns. "With the opportunities for affiliates still expanding, there couldn't be a better time for publishers to build one or more quality Web sites using the DM2 platform."
