As we say goodbye to February and the Vancouver Olympics, I am extremely excited for March Madness, Spring Training, the NBA Playoff run, and the NFL Draft buildup. In order to keep up with everything, make sure you're checking out Yardbarker.com, FOXSports.com, and keep creating that great content!
Sales have been very strong the past few months, and we expect that trend to continue. Currently we have deals running with PokerStars, Champion, Gillette, and Dockers. As per our net 60 day payment terms, you should have received your December 2009 payment last week. We have some good meetings setup this month and are looking to close more deals, so as always, pay attention to your email and the YBN Blog for the most up to date information.
As you all know, the deadline for the ad tag transition has passed. Thanks for your attention to detail in the removal of your Adify tags and replacing them with the new DoubleClick tags. Remember, you are allowed to have up to three ads per page but cannot add two of the same ad size on any given page (i.e. two 300x250's on one page is not allowed). Also, if you still have not added the YB - FOX branding, YBN widget, or YBN pixel to your site, please do so immediately.
Enough of the requirement stuff! As stated last month, being a member of the YBN offers you unique opportunities such as possible FOXSports.com promotion, free high quality pictures from PicApp, a video player from VERSUS, promotion via the Morning Bark, and the ability to start a new blog or change platforms with Barklogs.
As part of our efforts to bring you the best opportunities the web has to offer, YBN sites will have the ability to embed a CBS March Madness On Demand (MMOD) player on their site for full March Madness coverage. The embed code will be available March 10th, and you can find more details here. Having this on your site will ensure that you and your audience don't miss any of the tournament's action!
