GOOD ADS grab your attention, even if you find after a cursory examination that you don't have an interest in the service, product or site being proffered.
What's make you click on a text-link ad? What makes you pay attention to any ad?
A compelling message. Content that connects.
We found ourselves clicking on many good ad, such as:
2. Sign Up
3. Create Your Ad
Important: Do not include "http://" when you type in the URL. If you do, potential viewers will just get an error page.
Pick the number of impressions you want. Currently, the going rate is $10 for 4000 impressions, and $2.50 per 1000 impressions.
4. Select No Apologies! Press
Whatever you do, do not select more than two or three sites -- otherwise, your ad will be spread thin and you'll be out of impressions quickly.
5. Save your ad
6. Make payment
If you don't already have a Paypal account, you can create one through Adfarm.
7. You're done!

Following are some tips that will help you get the most out of your investment.
First, we suggest that you advertise on NA!P exclusively. "Of course you do" is your first reaction. But really, we have good reasons for doing so.
But let's assume you want to do a mult-site campaign. In fact, there's a button on the Adfarm ad creation page that lets you advertise on all ad hosts.
DON'T. First, you won't be targetting the interest readers you want. And even if you have an ad that's interesting to all people, your ad will only get five or six impressions per site -- your click-thru ratio will be non-existent.
That's not to say you shouldn't push your product on two or three sites, but going beyond a certain number will hurt your click-thru ratio.
Okay, say you want to advertise on NA!P and two other sites. Say you've picked those other sites -- before you commit to them, check their impression/click-thru ratios. (and check ours as well). If they have low numbers, there is a reason -- perhaps the ads are:
a) at the bottom of the Web page
b) have small fonts, making the ads hard to read
c) designed to blend into the site, rather than stand out
d) placed on less-trafficked pages, away from the index page
There're all kinds of ways other sites can mess up your ad.
