Regular ads don’t work anymore.
Can you remember how many ads you’ve seen in the last 24 hours?
If you live in a big city and you are a statistical web user, then you’ve been exposed to about five thousand ads.
How many of them did you remember?
And advertisers paid for 100% of your exposure to ads.
Is it money wisely spent?
Do you know that… ?
Not noticing advertisements is a common phenomenon, which in psychology is called the banner-blindness effect.
In programmatic campaigns, you pay for every ad on the page, regardless of whether it was displayed to the user at all.
On average, 50% of clicks on ads are made by bots.
Most computer users use an ad blocker.
The impact of standard advertising campaigns on brand perception in brand-lift studies is microscopic.
And that is why an alternative approach to advertising, which is gaining more and more popularity, is… questvertising.
Questvertising (a combination of the words quest – “task” and advertising) is a concept of advertising activities based on setting simple tasks for the user-recipient. Performing the desired action usually requires reading the advertising message, which is the main goal of questvertising.
In practice, questvertising usually takes the form of questpasses, i.e. ads with a question about the content of the ad. Indication of the correct answer confirms that the user has read the advertisement with understanding (100% visibility with 0% banner-blindness!). Only then is the rest of the article revealed.
Thus, questpasses act as a captcha, weeding out bots and eliminating ad-fraud from the campaign. The format itself allows you to bypass adblocks and reach people who do not see regular ads.
What is crucial in times of crisis – the fee is charged only for the correct answer, so it is an efficiency settlement model. CPQ – Cost Per solved Questpass.
Check how it works in practice.

The user gets the possibility of free access to valuable content. His “payment” to the Publisher can be a moment of attention, dedicated to clicking the right answer to the question about the advertisement visible above. No need to buy subscriptions and to transfer money as in typical paywalls. For those willing, there is also a premium account that turns off quests in exchange for supporting the Publisher with a small amount of money.
The first part of the article that is open from the beginning.
Questpass, i.e. an advertisement with a question and three answers.
Thanks to Questpass, the Advertiser can finally be sure that the User will notice his advertisement, and even knowingly read its content. This is a colossal qualitative change in a world dominated by a mass of ubiquitous, annoying advertisements that nobody reads.
The publisher can finally fully monetize his potential, without cluttering the User with a mass of traditional ads. The Publisher also becomes more independent from advertisers, as not being pushed to seek additional sponsored texts or affiliate programs. And he does not have to hide his content behind an ordinary paywall, which would greatly limit the reach among readers.
Part of the article is visible only after the correct answer is given.
