Helpful, free and totally simple Unobtrusive adverts for makers. They help to even build a small banner if you don't have one. I think it was made for me, anyway, at that time (It's been a while)

Pros:

simple, quick, what more could you ask for?

Cons:

I can't think of anything right now

I have been using Maker Ads for a month now and I've been running an ad for MagicCopy.xyz while also catering 2 maker ads on our landing page. The ads are performing really well. The concept is brilliant and it was executed so well. More power to you!

Pros:

Collaborative Growth!

Cons:

None so far

James has done a great job with MakerAds. He even designed an ad for us and opened up stats to see CTRs and how each ad does which is super helpful, especially to sponsors which is what gives a lot of faith into the platform.

Pros:

Able to support other makers while also advertising my own projects

Cons:

None so far

I've been using MakerAds for almost a month now for hitechjobs.ca and its been a wonderful experience so far. Compared to other ad networks makerads is very lightweight, easy to use and looks awesome! Very happy with the experience and I will be using MakerAds for my future projects as well.

Pros:

Easy to use. Non-intrusive, super fast and quick to install on the site

Cons:

none so far

Will definitely continue using and integrating into my products

Pros:

The concept & adaptiveness

Cons:

Probably going up for strong competition with Intravert soon as both products operate in the same space with relatively similar target users

I love this idea. It's great that ads start to get grouped up in communities. So much easier to implement in designs without destroying the experience for the users.

Pros:

Supports the Maker Community More relevant ads on your website

Cons:

None

Great idea and perfect execution!

Super easy sign up process, plus who can argue with 100% free?

Cons:

An awesome platform, though I don't really understand why direct app store, etc. links aren't ok.

Pros:

Unobtrusive Easy to use

Cons:

Direct store links are not welcome?

All in all, I love the approach and we'll support the tool. We've created our add and we'll shortly add the embed code on our website.

Pros:

- Leverage the power of the makers community - positive approach - team is super reactive

Cons:

- ad system is still obscure - free riders seems to get the same benefits then the one putting the code on their website
