Default AdVolume anyone?

Hi,

I would like to know if anyone have heard of advolume? I've got an fixed rate CPM offer from them recently. Though I am not sure they will pay - domain name registered at 15th December 03'

Anyone?

Thanks!

I applied to them, just to check them out, we're always willing to give 1,000,000 impressions to a network to testing. So hopfully we'll hear back in a day our two. Honestly don't have much faith in a company that's been around for a 2 months and emailing people to join.... but we'll see..... updates to follow

most likely it's run by an individual who sits on his computer all the time.
be carefull with dealing with such a company.
my feeling tells me it's not a legit company

That site doesn't seem proffesional at all.

I would also think it is a one man show.

If you have 1 mil impressions to spare (like fireclown), go ahead and test them. If you count on your 300k impressions to pay the hosting, stay away.

my 2 cents

Hi goldbook,

Welcome to the "Village" and best of luck

What is your relationship with advolume?

Do you work for advolume?

What is the URL of your mainstream site where you run this program?

Thanks in advance.

goldbook,

Thanks for the answer. I asked because your original post does not indicate in very clear terms that you work for advolume and thus our Members can't make an informed decision unless all parties in a thread clearly indicate their relationship to a given Company. Natch, this stuff is also in our Rules and procedures.

Returning to your program if we could please

How do you intend to "investing in a good reputation" and what features make your program different from others in this space?

Good luck with your program.

Steve,
As for now, Paying our publishers on a CPM basis, and following through with net 30 payment.
As far as goals:
Innovating targeting capabilites through software upgrades, and publishers to ensure good CTR's on our network.
Not only are we providing traffic through networking; But we are also focusing on partnering with topic related sites, separating our service from highvolume low CPM traffic, from pure target market sites at customized rates. The faster business continues to move forward, the sooner goals become accomplished and new ones are set. As a company, we are constantly learning and progressing.
