GET MORE FROM VIDEO ADS WITH OVERLAY 2.0

Video player on your website doesn't support VAST tags? Or do you embed videos from other sites? Adsterra knows how to monetize content of all video players!

As Adsterra publishers know, we’ve developed a new easy method to start making money from video — Overlay pre-roll video,which ...

  • goes along with ALL video players
  • is installed simply by placing JavaScript at your website
  • has a great fill rate and provides high user engagement

As you may know, a pre-roll video is a short video ad shown before the content that User intends to watch. Normally, after 10 seconds the user can skip an ad to proceed to the video. Click here to see how it works.

Now even if you embed YouTube videos, or if it's hard to change settings of the video player on your website — you still can work with pre-roll video ads and earn much more than from regular video ads.

  2. At the new window, please, choose the "Other' type
  3. State that you need Overlay at the subject field

handTo get the script faster:
1) Decide on which block of your website you want to place the pre-roll ad before contacting a manager. Usually it's a video player, but actually it can be any block of your website body. 
2) Find a div id or div class of the block you've chosen. 

You need to provide this info to your manager in your message.
 

BONUS: How to find div class or div id?

 "Div class" or "div id" are used as indicators of the different blocks of your website. Adsterra manager needs it to provide you a relevant script for video ads.

You can easily find it! Here is a short instruction on how to do it at Google Chrome.

  • Go to "More tools..." from the settings at the right corner of the browser.
  • Click on the Developer tools (or just invoke it by Ctrl+Shift+I).
  • Choose Elements to see the code 
  • Select the element on the page 
  • The <div id =...  or <div class = ... will be highlighted blue inside the code.
