Many website owners, website developers and content publishing companies sign up for an AdBrite account to generate passive revenue from ads placed on their website. Sometimes, the revenue hopes begin to fade when the publisher repeatedly logs in to their AdBrite account and sees mere pennies paid out for their valuable advertising space. The advertising space that is being used to display AdBrite advertisements should be earning you revenue. If it's not, you may need to make some changes in your strategy, your Ad Zones or the company that you use to earn revenue.
Some web developers choose to switch to Google AdSense in hopes of generating better revenue for their website. After all, the bottom line is, the more earnings made, the better it is for the website owner. No one provides advertising space on their website for free. When you decide that it is time to close your AdBrite account, do you know how to do it?
Attempting to delete the AdBrite account can be a frustrating process. Despite the virtual dashboard and other accessible features for publishers, there is no easy to find link to close your AdBrite account. After several minutes of searching for a guide that might explain how to close my AdBrite account, I finally gave in and contacted AdBrite's customer service for instructions. To save you the trouble of having to contact customer service, here is how to close your AdBrite Publisher Advertising account.
First, log into your AdBrite account and cash out your earnings that you have already made. Unfortunately, AdBrite has a $5 minimum for payouts. I don't quite agree with this concept; I believe that any funds that are generated through the use of AdBrite advertising should be paid to the website owner. I am wondering how many other people get frustrated with the lack of earnings at AdBrite and move on without being able to cash out on the few dollars or cents that they were able to accumulate- but that's an entirely separate matter. Assuming you have accrued more than $5, cash out your earnings so that you will receive your payment.
Next, navigate to the "Manage Ad Zones" tab, and click on it. This will take you to your individual advertising zones. Click the "More" option from the corresponding drop down menu and select the "Delete Zone" option. You may need to repeat this process if you have multiple Ad Zones. This process might change slightly if AdBrite makes changes to their navigation structure, but the process should generally be the same: delete your Ad Zones.
Finally, remove all of the AdBrite code from your website, so that you don't have issues with alignment and spacing. If you are not familiar with code manipulation, you may want to have your web designer or web developer remove the code from your website. Once you have done this, it's a good idea to email AdBrite to let them know that you have cancelled your account with them.
Once your AdBrite account is closed, you can move on to other, more profitable endeavors. Don't worry, you're not alone.
