Email from Google Ad Manager DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) Small BusinessTeam

Hello,

Since Google's acquisition of DoubleClick in March of 2008, you may have noticed a number of significant improvements to Google Ad Manager designed to make managing your inventory and ad operations faster and easier. The new Inventory and Admin tabs are just a few such enhancements and there are many more on the way. These innovations were made possible by listening to your feedback and building upon the strengths of Google Ad Manager as well as technology and insight from DoubleClick's publisher suite.

Today, we announced our next generation publisher ad serving platform, the new DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) from Google, which further leverages the combined strengths of Google and DoubleClick. As part of this announcement, we're excited to let you know that all of our Google Ad Manager publisher accounts will be upgraded to DFP Small Business. This is the next generation of Google Ad Manager, bringing you many of the features you have requested like a complete, open Web Services API and a completely overhauled user interface that is even easier to learn and faster to use.

Over the next few weeks, we will upgrade your Google Ad Manager account to DFP Small Business automatically. You'll see the new names and logos and also benefit from redesigned trafficking workflows designed to make campaign management more intuitive and efficient. Similarly, the Google Ad Manager Help Center, User Forum, and other additional resources you enjoy will be re-branded to DFP Small Business.

As a DFP Small Business user, you'll still be able to sign in with the same username and password you use today, and your ad delivery and account data will be unaffected by this change.

In order to prepare for the upcoming changes to your Google Ad Manager account, we've prepared a set of online materials to help you get ready:
  • Familiarize yourself with the new DFP Small Business website which will be replacing the Google Ad Manager website.
  • Get a quick overview of the upcoming trafficking improvements and watch videos demonstrating the changes.
  • Attend our DFP Small Business web seminars to get an overview of these changes.
Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to our continued partnership.

Sincerely,
The Google Ad Manager (DFP Small Business) Team

As the testing industry grows and matures, more testers will likely:

But before the testing industry can really prove its worth, more testers will need to know  why  they’re testing -- before they start running tests. To answer “why", you must first formulate a sound hypothesis. Your hypothesis needs to get to the core of what you’re trying to achieve through testing. Testers who start with solid hypotheses have better odds of running valid tests with significant results. Valid tests can lead to big conversion gains. Big conversion gains can equate to big revenue increases. And, of course, big revenue increases mean your company’s doing well. The rest is a no-brainer. If you’re helping your company profit, you might just get that bonus, after all!

Exit offers might come in the form of an animated pop-up, a special offer, or something else that keeps visitors on your site longer. Yes, creating exit offers can create annoyance. But, when done correctly, they can also be highly beneficial. In this award-winning real-life test, using  an exit offer increased conversions an astounding 473%! Use exit offers to your advantage. Test new techniques and ways to create it.  Whatever you do, don’t let prospective customers easily leave without trying to get at least a micro-conversion from them.​
