Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have to sign a long-term contract?

Our internet advertising contracts are typically six months, but once you get the return on your investment we know you’ll stay with us.

How much should my budget be for local internet marketing?

We don’t try to sell you things you don’t need. The beauty of internet marketing is the easy scalability. As your ROI grows, so can your budget – it’s all measurable and scalable.

Can you guarantee the number of site visitors I will receive?

Absolutely! We use a combination of advanced computer algorithms and human oversight to ensure your company is meeting its goals. If we fail to deliver the guaranteed number of visitors or impressions, we will refund your money prorated proportionally to the number of unfulfilled visitors or impressions.

Can’t I buy SEM directly from the search engine myself?

You can, but as with many other things, just because you can doesn’t mean you should. It’s similar to cutting your own hair: you can do it, but it won’t have the same results as if a professional did. Either way, we recommend you start an internet marketing campaign as soon as possible.

How quickly after I place my order will I see traffic to my site?

Ad campaigns and your first bull are typically started on the 1st or the 15th of each month, depending on when you sign up. We perform an in-depth analysis of your website and the keywords associated with your business. We design and post all ad copy so we can activate it on the 1st and 15th. Once your campaign is running, you will see increased website traffic immediately.

What kind of reporting will I see?

Each month we will send you a report detailing how many impressions and clicks you received.

Can I choose which search engines my ads are displayed on?

Your campaign will only run on major search engines and our quality partner sites. We will match your ads with the most appropriate search engines and websites, but we cannot guarantee that your ad will appear on any specific website or search engine.

What percentage of online users does AdsUpNow reach?

AdsUpNow’s reach across the web is 98%. You can be sure that AdsUpNow can get your ads in front of your target customers wherever they may go online.

Does my site require a privacy policy?

Yes, our ad networks require your site to have a privacy policy. Your policy should contain the following:

  • Describe what personal information is collected.
  • Describe how this information will be used by the company.
  • Describe how this information will be transferred to third party companies.
  • Provide instructions on how users can modify or delete their personal information.
  • Provide instructions on how users can opt-out of future communications. Finally, websites that collect sensitive personal information, such as bank details and credit card numbers, must use a secure processing server (https://) when collecting this information.

If you are unsure of what to put in your privacy policy, it is recommended that you check out some privacy policies on popular sites that you’re frequent, to get an idea of what is required. There are also some resources, such as www.Freeprivacypolicy.Com, that are helpful when creating your privacy policy.

What is retargeting?

Retargeting is advertising, or showing display ads, to people who have already indicated an interest in your brand by visiting your website, but did not convert. Technically, you place a snippet of code on your website that creates a list of people that visit your site, and allows AdsUpNow to display your ads to your potential customers as they visit other sites. Because AdsUpNow works with the largest ad exchanges, we can find your customers just about anywhere they might go online.

If placed correctly in the header of your website, our pixel will not negatively impact your website’s page load time. The pixel loads asynchronously after your web site’s functionality.
