Good news for publishers and media companies everywhere: Viafoura is now offering its entire audience engagement and community-building platform free of charge through an ad-supported pricing model.
“Media companies are quickly realizing that the key to sustainability is creating a highly engaged, loyal community,” says Jesse Moeinifar, Founder and CEO of Viafoura.
Unfortunately, many available community-building solutions are either expensive, require huge amounts of internal effort or are low quality. But now you can have the best of all worlds.
“Our ad-supported revenue model offers all media companies equal access to the tools and services they need to build a profitable community, regardless of their financial resources,” Moeinifar adds.
This means that companies are now able to build and monetize an active community online by hosting ads and subscription offers within Viafoura’s widgets.
Rather than having to pay a recurring license fee, our new pricing model is powered by revenue earned through ads and offers running on Viafoura’s tools. Companies can then reap the rewards of their engaged communities — including more subscriptions, long-term loyalty and new incremental revenue.
Customers using our platform saw a 44% increase in comments, 34% increase in average session length and 38% increase in total on-site engagement.
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Explore how Viafoura’s ad-supported pricing plan can benefit your business below.
With advertisers gradually increasing their budgets as restrictions around the pandemic ease up, it’s the perfect time to optimize your ad spaces for engagement.
Viafoura offers a wide range of flexible advertising opportunities to satisfy all of your ad-related needs.
For example, you can choose which of our widgets run advertisements, select ad positions and set ad frequency:
We also give you the option to work with our brand-safe, premium advertising partners to maximize CPM/eCPM rates. Alternatively, you can use your own ad-serving platform.
Finally, you have the freedom to define your blacklists and run any of your in-house or third-party ads and offers.
