AdMatchup lets you advertise(P2P way) for FREE….Effective ?

Advertisement for free Admatchup. Admatchup lets you advertise for free by letting others advertise on your site.

AdMatchup is an implementation of an interesting  concept….Doing “P2P for advertisements” and making the Ad system FREE to use.

Armin Bahramshahry,the lead developer and founder of this website describes AdMatchup as a method to advertise one’s website for FREE.Users signup and begin advertising for one another,they receive points as they advertise for others and those points are used towards advertisement for their website.

Operating since Oct 1,it has 22+ websites registered on its platform and gearing up for more participation in the time to come.

Few such systems based on FREE advertising through mutual sharing have been there already but didn’t work out well as in such systems,you gain some traffic but loose out your own traction as well.Sometimes,gain-loss equalise(hence null effect) and in some cases,you loose more than you gain(if your own traffic is among the highest of all the sharing parties)

But,in our belief,this concept has great potential but requires a superb execution.So,it will be interesting to see how AdMatchup proves itself in this arena.

As it has just started off,it’s too early to comment on its future but at the moment,it doesn’t look convincing enough and needs to be worked out in a  better way(in terms of design,user experience,more innovative method of ad sharing)…

    Thanks for the article. Something I like to mention is that usually the banner exchange services match your advertisement 2 to 1 (they take half of the traffic). AdMatchup.com is completely free, and you will get 1 to 1 ratio for your advertisement. You receive points per pixel, so we also take into account the size of advertisement you do.

    Also, I like to mention that in our system unless you have more traffic than everyone else in the system, you wouldn’t “lose more than you gain” as you mentioned above.

    Furthermore, I like to mention that I’ve mainly focused on developing a fair system so members get exactly their fair share of advertisement, rather than the website design. There will be updates in future to improve the user quality and add new features.

    Some of the features we have in mind is advertisement based on city, state, country. Also, you will have an ignore list so you would not advertise for websites that are your competition or you just don’t like.

    We are looking forward to more and more members. If you have any requests, comments, or feedback feel free to contact us directly.
