Ads Manager 2 is the new and improved version of Ads Manager 1, designed for XenForo 2. Ads Manager 2 allows you to make money by displaying your own ads or by selling ad spaces on your forum (or both).

There are 10 ad types available:

Great add on, responsive developer, very glad for his help getting the functionality I needed to run DFP ads on my forum!
Easily one of the most useful add-ons for our large scale forum. Continuous updates, friendly support, and leading features make this add-on a must-have.
PERFECT. This is one of the best implemented, thought-out add-ons of any kind. Well worth twice the price. The only thing missing is the ability to run site background ads.
Incredible support, really fast and helpful. Great addon for managing advertising with tons of options. Recommended.

This is an excellent ad manager and the best one built natively for XF. Siropu is quick to provide support and seems to genuinely care about the quality of the product. It is worth the money!
Best ads manager you will ever need for your forum. It has features similar to Google Adwords. Great support. Highly recommend it!
Nice addon. I use it and it's priceless. Nice and effective support. I definitely recommended to have it.
Very Great program. He responds, listens, and cares. I thought this was too much at first, but seeing the extensive detail; it's worth every penny and goes way way beyond anything!
