If you don't want to sell ads, there is a cheaper lite version called Ads Manager 2 Lite.

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 11 ad types available:

1. Code
Display HTML/JavaScript ads such as affiliate banners, Amazon product widgets, Adsense, etc. This ad type also supports PHP callback to generate your own custom code.

2. Banners
Display banner ads that you can upload directly or from an external source. You can use multiple images to rotate randomly on each page load.

3. Text
Display text ads with custom title, description and optionally a banner image.

4. Links
Display link ads with custom title. You can use it to build link lists in the forum sidebar or display horizontal links in other places.

5. Keywords
Transform text keywords into links with a tooltip description (optionally). Keyword ads can be enabled in thread posts, conversation messages, profile posts, resource description and in chat messages (Chat 2 add-on). As admin you can use it without link and can also add inline CSS to style the keywords as you want.

6. Affiliate Links
Convert links to affiliate links using 5 link building methods. Optionally you can replace the link anchor text with a custom text. You can also hide the affiliate URL when hovering over the link.

7. Promo Threads

8. Sticky Threads

Display popup ads in 3 ways: XenForo overlay with title and content, custom popup code and popup window with custom window features.

11. Background
Display a background image as an ad with clickable left and right parts of the image. If you provide multiple background images, they will rotate randomly on each page load.

Popup and background ads can be controlled how often they show up and after how many seconds to display. You can even hide them after x seconds of display.

Code, banner (Custom HTML), text and popup ads support XF template syntax.

There are over 150 default positions and 80 of those are predefined dynamic positions that allows you to display ads between thread posts, conversation posts, profile posts, media items, resources and more.

I use xencloud and I've had issues with other addons in the past. The install was a breeze, download to your computer, click addons on your forum admin console, then install the zip file. installs effortlessly.
It gives excellent options to both the user and the admin! It keeps thing simple and clean and is self explanitory.
Every one of his plugins are high quality. This is a great tool for managing advertisements on your site.
purchased yesterday and a rune that I highly recommend Fully automated advertising system with many detailing systems
I had this on XF 1, but it has jumped through a million hoops to be THAT much better in XF2. Simply the best addon for advertising you could imagine.
This is a very nice and comprehensive addon and a no-brainer for those who want to show/sell ads on their page. Siropu also responds quickly when asking him questions, and my highest recommendation :) :)
I was concerned about being able to implement similar ad placements when I migrated from vB4 to XF2.1. A couple experts recommended this addon and it is working great. Very flexible and I appreciate the export system and lazy load feature. I haven't even looked at many of the options yet. I only needed the Lite version, but bought the full version on the Easter discount offer in case I needed the extra features in the future.
This add on has a lot of features.
But i am hardly missig some instructuins. :-(
Will change my ratings whe i got a answer of developers support page.
Great add-on. Fantastic support. Siropu always attentive when asked questions. He is a very polite chap.
This add-on (like his others) is great. The features are extensive and the developer is VERY responsive to support tickets. Can't thank them enough.
