Case Study - Advertising WebsiteApplication: Ad Publisher and Click Tracker
Aim: To develop an ad publishing platform where advertisers get to display ads to a very focused and willing audience.
Background: Our client approached us with a concept of an advertisement website development. The concept of a targeted ad website was innovative and provided us with a unique opportunity to develop a solution with a strong profiling and targeting application.
Objectives: We proceeded with the project outlining the following primary objectives:
- Design a highly flexible and scalable website design that would be able to support a large number of concurrent users
- Design a wide range of modules to provide concrete data to the advertisers
- Easy to manage admin section design
- Easy to use for not-so-net-savvy subscribers
Solution: In accordance with the objectives of the project, we came up with a robust and modulare architecture offering usability and accessibility to the administrator. The website had a number of modules for categorizing ads and subscribers. An easy to use Content Management System was provided so that the client could manage each section of the website on their own. The website has a host of features for both advertisers and the subscribers as well. Impressions, clicks, target profiling are important modules of this project. Payments can be calculated and a log maintained online.
