What is Kind Ads?
With online advertising being dominated by a few large players, publishers and advertisers alike work with companies such as Facebook and Google in order meet their marketing needs. This leads to a poorly distributed market where these same large players can set prices and conditions.
As a result, companies who want to advertise often blindly sink their money into ineffective advertising, while publishers advertise content that does not appeal to their user base.
Kind Ads (KIND) Tokens
Users can earn Kind Ads (KIND) tokens for agreeing to view ads, publishers can earn them for publishing and advertising parties can purchase them to purchase advertisement services.
Control With Kind Ads
One of the key features that are missing in modern day marketing platforms is control.
Kind Ads has several functions that give users, publishers and advertisers control.
Users can choose to opt-out of advertisement. This will also mean that they will not earn KIND tokens. Alternatively, users can provide their profile and they will receive targeted ads as well as earn KIND tokens.
Publishers know their readers. They can choose what type of advertisements will be most relevant to their readers, making them less intrusive and more relevant.
Advertisers can choose whom they work with based on a trust ranking. They can decide which publishers most closely resemble their ideal demographics and target them. All the while, they will save on large commission fees typically charged by traditional marketing networks.
Make a graphic that is relevant to KIND as well as their goals. These will be images that may be used in their articles, or just to show their followers! Feel free to stick to the color schema of their logo, or create something totally unique. It can be anything! Maybe companies being happy with all the money they save. Maybe a happy user who is no longer annoyed with intrusive ads. Maybe a depiction of a publisher having the power to choose! As long as it is appropriate and relevant, anything goes. It can be humorous or technical. The most important thing is that your image is creative and original!
