Last Updated 12/16/2021Posted in Publisher Sales

In the webinar on October 25, 2016, we discussed How to Use The Broadstreet Ad Server to Jumpstart Digital Sales.

You can view the entire recording in the video to the right and then dive right it and begin prospecting following the process outlined below. Happy Selling!

Getting Started

A simple way to get started with Broadstreet is by pre-selling the Emcee Beats Mixer Ad as outlined in the case study with Bob, the publisher of Mountain View Publishing, in the webinar (at 26:30 of the video).

The ad is meant to give you a feed of content from your advertisers that helps highlight what's going on in your community.

Goal of 10 Advertisers

X $240/advertiser/year ($20/month)


$2,400 in Revenue

At this price point, it's hard for advertisers to say no but if this isn't your cup of tea, then they're plenty of other options available which are highlighted by Kenny, the co-founder of Broadstreet, starting at about the 8:40 mark of the video.

Remember, advertisers spend a ton of time on Facebook but struggle to reach a lot of people because Facebook's newsfeed algorithm limits their reach. The Emcee Beats Mixer ad lets them increase their reach and get more out of their Facebook efforts with very little extra work!.
