After many months of production, re-designing and testing, we’re finally ready to release Ad Agency 4.0 for Joomla 3.x.
It took a lot of work but I think you’ll agree that it’s worth it. This is the best version of Ad Agency we’ve ever produced.
So what’s new?
New Name, New Logo, New Look
We’ve dropped “iJoomla” from the name. It’s now just Ad Agency. You know who made it, right? And we also have a new logo: Great, isn’t it?
Being able to work with mobile devices is so important. So Ad Agency is now completely responsive. Whichever mobile device your advertisers want to use, they’ll find that Ad Agency looks great, is easy to use and is very friendly.
New Campaigns Manager
We’ve completely revamped the campaign manager. Both front end and back end are now clearer, better and easier to follow.
New Package Type - Inventory!
Now you can limit how many times a package can be sold based on how many banners available for the zone! Once it's sold out, advertisers see a "Sold Out" message. They can still buy this package though but they will have to start their campaign at a next available date.
Ad Agency’s new cPanel shows you everything: revenue, best performing ads, promo codes, change log, and much, much more.
When we revamped Ad Agency, we used the same comprehensive testing process that we implemented in JomSocial. We created and tested over 1,000 test cases, and were able to dig out and fix more than 100 bugs! I can’t promise that we got them all (Ad Agency is pretty complex) but I can promise the amount of bugs will be minimal!
One-click Install and Update
The installer that comes with Ad Agency 4.0 for Joomla 3.x will let you both install and update Ad Agency easily. You’ll get to do it all with just a single click. You did want it that easy, didn’t you?
How to Download Ad Agency 4.0
To download Ad Agency 4.0, log in to your account on iJoomla.com and visit the My Downloads page. You’ll find a package that contains both Ad Agency for Joomla 2.5 and Ad Agency for Joomla 3.x. Just follow the instructions in the README.txt file.
Our translators have been working hard translating Ad Agency! So far a few languages have been completed. Check out the Ad Agency translations on transifex.
Check out the Webinar
A few weeks ago I recorded a seminar with the guys from CloudAccess.net. I discussed online advertising, talked about best practices and gave an overview of the new Ad Agency. I also answered some live questions. If you want to learn more about Ad Agency and the latest development, check out the recorded webinar here:
