WP Stealth Ads Review – EVERYTHING You Need To Know!Posted at February 28, 2017 by Christopher Mollo on category Blogging, Internet Marketing Product Reviews, WordPress Plugin Reviews
Thanks for joining me today for this incredible WP Stealth Ads review!
In this review, I’ll explain exactly what the WP Stealth Ads plugin does, and why you should add it to your blog immediately. I’ll also go over the entire sales funnel from start to finish, and I’ll help you to decide whether or not you need to purchase any/all of the upsells.
First and foremost, let’s discuss native ads. Native ads are all the rage these days, and for good reason. They are outperforming just about all other on-page advertising. The click-through rates that native ads can achieve can be absolutely astronomical! That’s why I am urging you to pay very close attention to my WP Stealth Ads review.
I’ll begin by telling you what native ads are. If you’ve visited any of the thousands of blogs and websites that are using native ads, you’ve probably seen them but didn’t realize it. Native ads are often hard to spot because they blend into the website as if they were content.
One of the most popular places to put native ads are right at the bottom of posts and pages. They are very similar to most “related posts” sections. In other words, they actually mimic the look of your “related posts” widget and sometimes they are even in link form. That row of links in the blog sidebar that look like links to other blog posts on the same site are often native ads that link out to a totally different website.
I’m using the WP Stealth Ads plugin on this blog, so if you scroll down to the bottom of this post, you’ll see a “More From CJ Mollo” section with a block of native ads underneath. While this block of ads looks very much a “related posts” widget, these are actually native ads that I created myself using this versatile plugin.
The ad design can be customized to appear exactly like content on your blog. That’s really what makes them so damn effective. Popular authority sites like Huffington Post and CNN use native ads with immense success. If you visit either one of those sites, look very closely and you will see that what appear to be links to other posts are actually links to other websites. Look even closer, and you will notice that many times these links and images are actually labeled as paid content or advertising. It doesn’t seem to matter. People still click on them like crazy!
In addition to appearing as part of the website, another one of the keys to success is to create zany ad copy and use comical images to capture reader attention. If you are adept at writing short ad copy and headlines, you’ll do very well with native advertising.
In this WP Stealth Ads review I’m going to explain exactly how you can put these gorgeous ads on your website. Not only that, you’ll be able to control where the traffic goes. This is what makes the WP Stealth Ads plugin even more powerful than a third party ad server. If you publish native ads on your site through one of the bigger companies like Outbrain or Taboola, you have no control over the destination websites.
That’s what makes WP Stealth Ads the perfect solution for business and eCommerce bloggers. The webmaster has absolute control of all aspects of the native ads they serve on their site, right down from the type of font and images used to the ad’s destination link.
I’m a big proponent of products that give you everything with the “front end” product. I despise products that play the upsell game. It’s perfectly fine to offer upsell products. However, the upsell product shouldn’t be necessary to make everything work right. It should supplement the initial product, not be something one must buy to make the whole thing work.
That’s called a “bait and switch,” and it’s not cool. In my opinion, it’s downright unethical.
That’s not the case with WP Stealth Ads. Customers only need to purchase the regular version of the plugin to get all of the necessary features. The upsell, which is a “pro” version of WP Stealth Ads, has three features that the regular plugin doesn’t. However, you don’t need any of the added functionality of the pro version for this plugin to work effectively and efficiently.
I explain the sales funnel in detail in the video version of my WP Stealth ads review, which is just below. I strongly recommend you take the time to watch that video. This way you’ll be able to see all of the functions the plugin has, and you’ll get a good look at how easy it is to set up and use.
Here’s what the sales funnel looks like:
As you can see, it’s a simple funnel. It’s not necessary to purchase the “pro” version unless you would like to have the three extra features.
Three things that the pro version can do that the regular plugin cannot:
1. Tracking – This feature allows your plugin to track ad impressions, ad clicks, and ad click-through rate (CTR).
2. Smart Rank – This feature uses the tracked ad stats and will begin to automatically show top performing ads more often. This means that more weight is assigned to ads that are working the best. As a result, better performing ads are shown more often, resulting in more clicks on your ads.
3. WP Stealth Ads widget – This feature adds a widget to your WordPress dashboard so you can put native ads wherever widgets are allowed.
I didn’t purchase the pro version because I’m not really interested in any of the extra features. If you want to track clicks, you could always use a tracking link. There are some free tracking link services available, such as Bit.ly or Tiny URL. I already have a paid account at ClickMagick, which is the best link tracker available.
The “smart rank” feature is great, but I’m not new at writing ad copy, so I don’t really need that.
The last feature, which allows you to add native ad widgets to your sidebar or footer, is not something I need. I like to put all of my native ads at the bottom of my posts. After all is said and done, you may want to have those features. If that’s the case, then you should definitely grab the pro version of the plugin.
I hope that this WP Stealth Ads review has helped you to learn a lot about this plugin. Make sure you watch the below video so you can learn even more!
