One of their reps emailed me and asked if we could set up a meeting to discuss ways of increasing my ad revenue.
I told him up front that I was unhappy with OpenX over the way they handled the OnRamp cut-off and that when one of their reps contacted me days after the shutdown and told me their enterprise platform was 5k a month, I told him that was insane for the amount of traffic I had.
So, the new rep wrote back and told me that " I would like to discuss our ad server with you and a monthly cost that makes sense. I would also like to discuss monetizing your unsold inventory through our exchange. There have been many positive changes with OpenX that will help alleviate the issues you have experienced in the past. "
I figured it was worth a shot.
So, I call into the phone conference and am chatting with the rep and one other guy. We talk about what I did when OnRamp shut down, what I went to, costs, and features. Then they ask me what my available monthly impressions would be. As it stands, about 250k per month available impressions.
The reps immediately got quiet and said that they only work with customers with 5 million monthly impressions or more.
I pointed out that no one is doing what they do for the well established, but not HUGE forums. This was a big market they could get into. I get about 3/4 of the way through that and they cut me off and basically tell me that "once I've grown from a small acorn to an oak tree", to contact them.
NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
I thought OpenX had changed, but apparently it's the same company it's always been.
