SocialAds 2.9 Beta - Campaigns, Budgeting & More!

We are pleased to announce that SocialAds 2.9 has entered Beta! This version brings some pretty major features to the advertising scene in Joomla. This blog will give you a quick overview of what to expect. Note that this is a beta release & should only be used for testing & not on Production sites !

A Whole New Charging Option with Campaigns & Budgeting !

SocialAds 2.9 beta brings a whole new Charging Model. With this new model, SocialAds will now let you make a Pre payment to add balance to your account, then create Campaigns, set budgets & create Ads against them without having to pay & checkout for every Ad. Google Ads, Facebook & LinkedIn Ads already work on this model.

alt

Switching to this model is optional. If you prefer to use the Pay & Checkout per Ad model, you can keep using this same. If you wish to switch, we have provided a quick migration tool that will convert your user's existing ad balances to the new model on a prorata basis.

Ad Balance & Billing

Once you are on this model, the users can use a 'Add Balance' process to prepay funds to their account on your site. A Nice looking Ad Billing view shows a history of all transactions as well as full details of how its being spent.

alt

Campaigns & Budgets

The user can create campaigns & set a Daily budget against the campaign. Ads will be created against campaigns. SocialAds will show Ads till the daily budget is exhausted.

Beautiful with Bootstrap !

We have completely revamped the front end views of SocialAds & added some awesome Bootstrap magic. Now you don't have to wait for 3.0 to get a beautiful interface for SocialAds ! P.S. SocialAds will be 3.0 compatible by March end in the version 3.0 .
