How Do I Get Started?
To use our Ad Manager, you need a GiveMeApps account. Sign up if you do not have one. Once logged in, you can access our Ad Manager by simply clicking on "Create Ad" in your Profile Menu as shown below.
Click "Manage Ads" To Access The Ad Manager
From there, you can begin the process of placing your ad. The Ad Manager will display. The "Create Ad" tab will allow you to create a new Text or Image banner, while "View Past Ads" will let you review any current or past campaigns. Each field on the Ad Manager form must be completed in order to proceed to purchase.
The Ad Manager Here Lets You Customize And Configure Your Ad
Ad Name is where you name your campaign. Be descriptive as you will want to know what your campaign was for when reviewing the "View Past Ads" tab.
Ad Placement Affects Where Your Ad Displays
Now you select where you want to place the ad. You can place ads in the App Forum (Community), the General Sidebar or alongside App Listings. The General Sidebar (250x250) will target the App Review, Home Page and other Non-App Listing pages. App Listings will only target our Apps section where users can browse through and downloads apps. Sidebar and App Listing ads appear in the "Sponsored Ads" module on the right sidebar of every page. Ad Prices vary with placement.

Viewing Ads Already Created
Once you've submitted your ad by clicking "Proceed To Checkout", you can view the status of your ad by accessing the "View Past Ads" tab. Ads which have been paid for and approved will appear as active.
"View Past Ads" allows you to see the status of submitted ads
In the example above, you can see the ad has not been paid for as of yet. Under the "Type" and "Status", this particular ad is a Text Ad (Tt) and is inactive (x). You can also view when the ad was created and its duration. By clicking "Pay", you can proceed to checkout and complete the transaction if you didn't do it the first time.
