Advertisers are always looking for ways to reach the most valuable audience, and right now the number one request we get from them is to place their premium ads within the amazing video content they know they’ll find from AdThrive sites! So if you’re not currently running our AdThrive Video Players and want to learn more about how you can earn more from your site, we’re here to help you get started.
Original video content provides extra value to your readers, keeps them on the page longer, and can be another wonderful source of ad income for your site. If you include monetized videos in your posts, readers who view the post and watch the video can be up to TWICE as valuable to advertisers as readers who simply read the post.
Videos are the future of digital advertising, and sites that make high-quality videos today will be best prepared for where advertising is headed long-term.
When you run AdThrive video players, we provide super fast (and free) video hosting that plays ads before and during your video content. Our advertisers will monetize videos that are professional or semi-professional and are 30 seconds or longer.
Here are the different ways you can display and earn with video ads:
Embedded Click To Play Players
The embedded click to play player functions like an embedded YouTube video player, but makes you a LOT more money than you’d earn through YouTube thanks to our premium video advertisers! Here’s an example of what an in-post player looks like when you embed the code directly in a post.
- Single Videos: Upload videos in your AdThrive dashboard and grab the embed code to place the video in any post/page you like.
- Video playlists: We can help you create playlists based on the tags you assign to your videos, and you can embed these playlists inside posts and pages just like single videos. Playlists can be helpful to run on posts that don’t have a specific video.
Auto-Insert Video Players
These types of video players are automatically inserted on every post or page on your site, so you can earn from high-paying video ads on every pageview!
Collapsible Video Players
In this type of video player, a video playlist begins silently playing inside your post and as the reader scrolls down to continue reading, the video moves from the post content to ‘stick’ and scroll along with the reader. Advertisers love the continued engagement the collapsible players have with your readers, so this player earns the most and is our recommended video player option!
- On desktop, this player moves over to the sidebar of your site and scrolls down with the reader.
- On mobile, this player moves to the top of the page and scrolls down with the reader.
Both desktop and mobile versions have a close option. See an example of what this video player looks like in action here. The desktop collapsible player loads on desktop — switch to a mobile device or use a mobile device emulator in your browser to see the mobile collapsible player in action.
Stationary Video Players
The stationary video player is a legacy video player option that stays in one place on your site and loops through your videos on all pages.
- On desktop, this player loads in the sidebar of your site.
- On mobile, the player loads in the middle of posts.
Since this player option stays in one place and readers can skim past it, it earns significantly less than the collapsible option. For maximum earnings, we recommend choosing the collapsible video players!
