New offering gives publishers total control over the ads that are being displayed

Livefyre, the leading real-time content marketing and engagement platform, today announced one of the most highly requested additions to its Livefyre Comments application: the ability to integrate ads into comment streams.

This announcement marks the first time that publishers will be able to connect comments directly to their existing ad platforms and DFPs, maintaining total control over the ads that are being displayed. Livefyre is also enabling its customers to keep 100% of the revenue from ads sold into the comments stream, bringing maximum value and revenue ROI to community engagement.

Livefyre customers have found that readers who comment are more likely to become paid subscribers, visit more frequently, stay longer and view more pages than other readers. So, at a time when the advertising industry is moving away from clicks and impressions toward more meaningful metrics like engagement, Livefyre is giving publishers the ability to capitalize on what is inarguably some of the most magnetic inventory on a page.

“Love them or hate them, commenters are consistently among the most engaged users on a site,” said Jordan Kretchmer, founder and CEO of Livefyre. “This is a tool that empowers publishers to monetize their onsite engagement by offering premium ad inventory directly in front of the most loyal members of their audience.”
