Monetizing your Invitation Emails using AdsInEmails from SocialAds

Ads created via SocialAds can now be sent via Invitex Emails. 


In order to show Ads in your Invitex invite Email, we need to use 2 plugins-

1. JMailAlerts Integration - System Plugin (plg_sys_jma_integration) - This plugin is auto installed when you install Invitex.  You just need to publish/enable it once before use.

2. SocialAds for J!MailAlerts (jma_socialads) - This plugin is included in the SocialAds package & is installed automatically when you install SocialAds. Make sure this plugin is enabled to use it with Invitex.

Setting up the Invitex template to show Ads from SocialAds

Step 1:

Enable "JMailAlerts Integration - System Plugin" plugin and configure it as shown in screen shot below.

Step 2:

Enable "SocialAds for J!MailAlerts" plugin and configure it as you want.  The parameters that you set here will be used as the default values when Ads are sent in emails in case you do not use data tags.

Step 3:

You need to insert a data tag as shown below in your email template in order for the Ads to show. Each Data tag can be configured to show different Ads.

The Data tag for SocialAds is as below


In the Data tag, you need specify

a. zone (Zone ID ( You can find this in the Zone Manager in SocialAds component configuration) ) as shown above.

b. num_ads (number of Ads) you want show.

c. create=1 will show the create Ad link in email

You can also opt not to pass any params at all. In that case default params set in the plugin configuration shall be used

You can use this tag for as many times in the newsletter as needed in the appropriate positions configuring it with the correct zone id. Thats it ! Now even your emails shall be monetized ! Ads in Emails support impression & click tracking just like your regular ads !
