Those who have set up an advertising account with one of the big networks like google will know that it’s not a simple task. If you don’t spend a lot of time filling out forms and going through reams of ‘help’ pages and read a lot, you stand the risk of finding out what you skipped when payment time comes along. Or not… The messages you receive are standard form messages, you’re dealing with a robot, not a human, and you have to wade once again through their terms, conditions and intro pages to figure out what you did wrong.
You could spend many hours on this and still only have scraped the surface. And then if you decide to add another ad company to your portfolio you have to do it all over again! It’s a nightmare worthy of Kafka. Add to this that you have to help the ad agency track everything your users do, for nothing!
I experienced a taste of a possible future when I set up an account with a-ads.com. I saw an ad for them on a website, followed the link and in 5 minutes I had an account, and an ad code to paste into my site. There was almost nothing to fill out, the rules fit on a single page and the instructions were equally simple.
They didn’t even want my name and address, just an email address, and a bitcoin address.
It’s early days yet, but I think if you have anything crypto-related to sell or a crypto-related site, give a-ads a try, support simplicity if that’s something you’d like to see in the future. If we don’t support initiatives like this they will fizzle out and the soulless minions of orthodoxy will continue on their path of turning all our exciting business ideas into a monoculture of boring drudgery.
If the true, full potential presented to us by cryptocurrencies is manifest, we will be free to pursue all our ideas and innovations without having to wade through the toxic sludge of bureaucracy that is currently holding us all back from achieving our true goals. But we have to make it happen, and if we don’t, then all these new evolving technologies will be used to further enmesh us in an ever-increasing web of made-up work.
So embrace these new innovations and evolutions, even if it means a short-term reduction in rewards because the cost of failure is greater than any immediate loss. This is just the beginning, and of course. things are not perfect yet.
Imagine a world in which our children and grandchildren browse through the archives of our early internet and laugh, and wonder, as they scroll through whole online educational courses about things as simple as using an advertising portal, were our grandparents insane?
