Summary

This "ad" takes a destination URL and converts it to a short URL, like popular link shortening services. You can provide your own domain name or use the default, xprss.io. It tracks clicks like any other ad format. It is useful for linking to news content and sponsored content on social media.

Setup / Inputs

These are the fields / inputs taken to generate this ad. In general, inputs are not required. That said, these inputs are how you customize the ad!

  • Destination: The URL that you would like the user to go to after clicking on the short URL
    Default value:
    http://broadstreetads.com

  • Custom Domain: The domain to use for the short URL. You use any domain with a CNAME setting pointing to ad.broadstreetads.com
    Default value:
    xprss.io

Embed An Example In Your Media Kit

Customers who wish to embed the example on some "Media Kit" page on their website can do so in one of two ways:

  • Option 1: If you have Wordpress and the Broadstreet plugin, you can use this shortcode anywhere in any post to render the example.

    [broadstreet ad="114994"]
  • Option 2: If you do not have Wordpress, or choose not install the Broadstreet plugin, you can embed this javascript code snippet into your post:

    <div street-address="114994"></div><script>
    (function(d, s) {
      // CLICK MACRO AND CONFIGURATION SECTION
      var destination = '%%CLICK_URL_ESC%%';
      // DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
      var js, bjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      js = d.createElement(s); js.async = true;
      js.src = "//ad.broadstreetads.com/display/114994.js?sa=1&"
        + (window.broadstreet ? 'init=0' : '')
        + (destination.indexOf('CLICK_URL_ESC') >= 0
          ? '' : '&destination=' + destination);
      bjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, bjs);
    }(document, 'script'));</script>
