Okay, may I introduce myself first. I'm a Chairman of PReI Party, one of 5 biggest Party in Indonesia. A Non-defensive Party with a huge vision to get Indonesia to become a strong and prosperous nation. Also, I'm a lawful citizen with golds to spare.
And suddenly this Citizen Ads come up!
Of course I was joyful! Long have I longed to spend all this blackhole gold in my party!
Mwahahaha! Time to divest all the gold for propaganda!
Then, I create an ads for my party.
First of all I'm gonna give you the tip of the day
#1 The TITLE OF ADS:
WRITE THE TITLE OF YOUR ADS AS LONG AS POSSIBLE.
WHY? TO SAVE THE SPACE IN THE ADS CONTENT SECTION!
Put the erep link so when the readers click on your title, they will be linked to the site.
#2 THE CONTENT LINE: Merely handles 100 characters. Including spaces and enters.
#3 You must enter an eRepublik link to that article.
And if your reader clicks it, you will know in your ad campaign page below your profile --> advertisement administration (below organisations).
That's the STEP ONE of your Ad.
Now, on STEP TWO, you determine which area YOUR AD will cover.
Is it Globally,
Or per country.
If you click per country, you can also choose ALL REGIONS or just a spesific region.
Afterwards, you can determine your target:
- Employees --> for GM to employee
- Voters --> Only people eligible for votes
- Super Soldiers --> Call up to everyone strength 5 above
- GMs --> Only to GMs
- Party members --> Only to Party Members
You must use this wisely.
#4 Choosing the target ads --> Everyone, might not be the wisest choice! Because your ads ran on limited basis and it cost money.
NOW ON STEP THREE:
The Ads now asked for your Budget and from WHICH ACCOUNT you invest for your ads.
If you are party leader, there's option to use your Party budget.
Enter the amount of money: minimum 2 golds, with ONE DECIMAL
Then enter the amount of IMPRESSIONS.
The maximum Impression number is 999999
However, I found out that the cheapest Impression you can get is 0.0001 gold.
What the hell does this mean?
This mean that everytime your ad is aired and somebody lucky enough to watch it on the RIGHT SIDE of your Ads, the impression number goes up by 1.
If you entered only one impression: That's it: you just got one user who saw your article, and all your 2 golds are dust and spend.
#5 Get highest number of impressions you can enter, so it will only cost 0.0001 impression per gold.
This means: with 2 golds --> 20000 impressions --> 20000 views
4 golds --> 40000 impressions max and so on.
what happen if i only deposit 2 gold and enter 999999 impressions?
when the impressions on your advertisement administration hit 20000, your ad automatically stops, unless you refund and re-run it!
]#6 You are entitled to choose whether you want to air your ads right now to the death of impressions, or periodically. I suggest choose wisely.
Base upon this experiments I conclude three laws of advertisement:
# 7 RULE NUMBER ONE --> Ads are quite expensive, use them only in desperation!
#8 RULE NUMBER TWO --> CHOOSE THE RIGHT TIME AND RIGHT PERSON AND RIGHT PLACE TO AIR THEM, DON'T JUST LET IT EATEN BY PASSERBYS! One view is 0.001 gold!
#9 RULE two and a Half --> READ TERMS AND RULES OF ADVERTISEMENT SO YOU WILL NOT BE MISLEADED AND BANNED.
