What does it all mean?

Let's be honest; you sell a product or service and only want to spend your advertising budget where it will make you the most profit. Pageview's and Visitor's are great "buzz words", but how does any of this help your business?

GenerationDUB has specifically tracked it's visitors using Google Analytics to ensure that advertisers needs are met. We will not "over sell" our advertising space, like other sites. Our advanced tracking software allows GenerationDUB sell specific ad units. Knowing how many people visit our site each day is crucial in guaranteeing that your banner is displayed as many times to as many people as possible.

Our current advertising package will guarantee your banner is displayed 6,000 times each month, or 72,000 times per years on our website, at bare minimum! There is no other form of publication media that can guarantee your banner is seen at all, let alone 72,000 times.

How do we know how many times our ad has been displayed?

GenerationDUB runs OpenX, a world-class ad serving software package. When you purchase an advertising unit from GenerationDUB, you will be given access to your very own Open X account to manage and track your advertisements on GenerationDUB.

GenerationDUB owner Harry Scanlan stays on top of industry trends and constantly invents and updates GenerationDUB with the latest technology. Harry completed a Computer Programming / Analysis and Design diploma and received the Canadian Information Processing Society Award of Excellence for Most Outstanding System Project which was designed for Genesis Worldwide Inc (GWI). Upon graduation, he spent two years at GWI developing the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, Genesis Enterprise Manager, which is now sold as a major software component in GWI’s turnkey business solution.

Harry’s previous success in academics prompted the decision to leave Genesis Worldwide Inc. in order to pursue a Bachelor of Computing Degree which he achieved in 2007. His focus quickly shifted from desktop applications to web development and led to a prosperous position at Claris Law as Software Engineer for a national website.

This successful academic and software development career coupled with his ability to be at the leading edge of the computer industry prompted Harry to launch Generation Media Group (GMG) in January 2010. GMG encompasses several multinational web and mobile applications including his most recent endeavor, BerryBlab. Harry is currently an independent contractor for mobile application and mobile web development.

Harry Scanlan is a well known industry developer, but also an avid car enthusiast. Combining these two passions have made GenerationDUB become a successful community.

Other Information

When purchasing an advertising unit you will receive access to our Sponsor Forums. Here you can post new products and services for our members to see. We ask that you limit your NEW threads to two (2) topics per week. This should be sufficient to advertise your new products.

To get the most out of your advertising package, it is best to interact with our community on a personal level. You don't have to own a Volkswagen to become part of the community! Start by using our off topic area and get to know some of the regular members! Spend an hour or two a week interacting with users can give you credibility which will lead to more sales.

We recommend starting one thread and using it to post your new products, instead of posting multiple threads. This will help people searching for info regarding your company. If you are a dealership, the same will apply for posting new / used vehicles that you have in stock.
