Brands

Brands

The brands are a high-level container, used to organize your campaigns so that they’re easier to manage. Brands do not affect the way ads are run, so you can create as many brands as you like from one real-world brand. For example, if your brand handles movies, you might want to divide it into different brands for adults and children. Creating a New Brand Brands are created from the Dashboard. >> To create a new brand, in the Dashboard’s Brands table, click Create New Brand. The Create New Brand pop-up opens. Name: mandatory field. Multiple languages are supported. Logo: drag and drop an image to the Logo field, or click it to open a file browser. Comments: plain-text comments.

Use the search function or sort the table by the Registered On column. The Brands Overview Page The Brands overview page is identical to the Ads table in the Dashboard. >> To reach the Brands overview page, in the main navigation click Shortcuts>Brands. The Single Brand Page >> To reach a brand’s page from the … Continued
Campaigns

Campaigns

Campaigns are the natural container for ads. Like brands, campaigns do not affect the way ads are run and so you can break down one real-life campaigns to as many CM campaigns as you’d like. For example, you might find it useful to create one campaign for each targeting strategy. Creating a Campaign Campaign creation is reached via the Brand page. >> To create a new campaign, in the Brand page, click Create New Campaign. The Create New Campaign pop-up opens. Name: multiple languages are supported. Industry: select from the drop-down list. The industry is later used for performance results, in the Dashboard’s Impressions by Industry graph.

Ads

Ads

Ads are what you run on your servers and are therefore the most sensitive entity in the system. We can think of an ad as having three states: Original: every new ad you create can be thought of as the “original” ad. Version: if you publish and ad, then edit and republish it, the republished ad is thought of as a version of the original ad. This distinction is important when working with heat maps. Variations: variations are used to A/B test ads; you create an original ad, then create variations of it. For more information, see Variations. Saving an ad is not enough to run it – you must publish it (see below). Publishing is the action that generates a tag for your ad. Please note that the tag will only work as long as the ad remains published – if you unpublish an ad, the tag will fail. Creating a New Ad There are two places from which to start a new ad: The Ads page. In the main navigation, click Ads. You will be asked to select a brand, and then a campaign from that brand’s campaigns. Note that a brand will only appear in your list … Continued
Publish

Publish

Publish generates the tag that can be run on ad servers, and should be the last action performed on the ad. ! Please note that the Creative Factory will allow re-publishing if you need it, but that will affect the ad’s statistics, as they’re presented per publish. When the ad is published, the Creative Factory will offer a link to an Instructions Page containing tags for different platforms. Publish can be performed from within the Creative Factory by clicking ‘Publish’ in the Top Bar Menu or by clicking ‘Publish’ in the main ad page of the Campaign Manager.
