AOL is not dead yet
I've always hated the subtle and no so subtle jabs at AOL in the last few years. This is stll an excellent company that has managed to remain relevant. And it's great to see them wisely follow Yahoo. Airpush, Twitter and the whole gang of early native mobile advertising adopters. This should help breathe new life into their ad revenue models.

Re: AOL
They seem to be doing a good job on advertising the native mobile ad unit that will offer marketers a way to promote the installation of apps on mobile devices. This will create a good platform for the marketers to be able to relate well with their sellers. Itís a plus since it reaches up to 56million users per month through its various websites and through its third party publishing partners. This will prevent biasness of sources since it presents ads that resemble editorial content.

Re: AOL
AOL bought advertising.com in 2004 so they've been in the business for a while.

Re: AOL
Well, it's what every salesperson strives for - to not be conceived of as a salesperson, even though we get paid on a straight commission basis. I'm actually surprised it took the ad industry so long to come around. The other noteworthy thing about this is that it creates more work for writers, because every ad has to be rewritten for each publication it runs on.

I havn't heard anything about AOL in a while. I didn't know they were still around. Now they are in advertising I see. Finding more ways to advertise when it doesn't look like advertising. wondeful.
