Embed Ads Into Your Twitter Tweets With Adjix

Uh, oh.

Those were the words that came out of my mouth this morning when I checked my email on my iPhone. For those registered to Adjix you may have received an email from the company announcing their new advertising format in which Twitter users will be able to embed an ad at the end of their Twitter Tweets in order to monetize off of their number of followers.

Adjix’s current ad program is based on link shrinking and including a text link on the top portion of the site as long as you are logged into your account on Adjix when shortening your link.

What’s actually useful about Adjix is that they offer several features such as the ability to track the number of clicks your unique shortened link receives. Not only are stats recorded for links with ads but there is an option to shrink a link without an ad, and yes you will still be able to track clicks for that URL.

Do people actually use the service for click tracking and not to serve ads?
Yes. More importantly one of the Twitter elite, @guykawasaki uses the Adjix service very frequently(to shrink and record stats) and if you visit his Twitter stream you will see that most, if not all of his links begin with http://adjix.com.

Adjix has a video demo of their new feature as well as details on their blog outlining Advertiser Info, Twitter User Info and how to install their bookmarklet in order to start embedding ads into your Tweets.

Luckily for me the only person I follow that uses Adjix is @guykawasaki, but the thought of monetizing on Tweets to a large list of followers may cause several to sign up and start using Adjix’s new ad embed. If so, we very well may see more Tweets as the mock put out by Adjix.
