Getting Started with Quickstart

During the sign-up process, select “Run a static brand/service promotion” for the question “What are you trying to do?” in the intro survey.

Select the “Quickstart” option.

Creating Your Static Ad Campaign with Quickstart

Once you select the Quickstart option, follow these step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Create an Advertiser

Provide your advertiser information, including the advertiser name, website URL, and business type. This information will be used to create your advertiser profile.

Step 2: Select a Campaign Solution

Choose from our top-performing campaign solutions. If you want to explore more options within Quickstart, simply click on “Show All Solutions.”

Step 3: Review and Edit Advertiser Information and Creative

Take a moment to review the advertiser information and creative. If you’re satisfied with the selected creative’s placeholder image and message, simply upload your logo and save the creative. To make changes to the advertiser information or replace the placeholder image and text, click on the “Edit” button.

After reviewing and editing, click “Save.” Depending on the media channel you selected in the intro survey, you will be directed to different next steps.

Step 4: Launch Your Campaign – When Buying Media through Adacado

Finalize your creative and review the ad summary overview. If you need to make minor tweaks to your creative, such as repositioning or resizing the image and message, you can access the simple version of the Creative Editor by clicking on each thumbnail.

For advanced features like changing the font type, size, or color, select “Creative” in the campaign dropdown menu.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Selecting an option from the advertiser and campaign dropdown menu will exit the Quickstart process, providing access to all menus and features of the platform.

Configure Your Media Channel

Review and adjust the settings, if necessary, for your media channel, such as location, budget, and audience targeting.

Finalizing Your Campaign

You have two options to finish Quickstart and launch your campaign:

Option 1: Serve My Ads

After completing the creative review and media channel settings, click the “Serve My Ads” button at the bottom right. This will open the billing information popup. Enter your billing information and click “Save and Serve My Ads” to activate the “Run Display Ads” media channel.

You will then be redirected to the “Campaign Analytics” page, where you will receive a message stating that your ads will be ready shortly. Your ads will go through the creative approval process at ad networks, and you’ll find out later whether your ad has gone live by checking key metrics on this page.

If you need to adjust your media channel settings later, such as audience targeting, budgeting, or scheduling, you can go to the “Ad Delivery Settings” page and make the necessary changes for the “Run Display Ads” channel.

Option 2: Save and Continue Later

If you select “Save and Continue Later” at the last step of the Quickstart process, you will be directed to the Creative Editor. Here, you can edit the creative and access all the platform’s menus. When you log in to the platform at a later time, the campaign with the creative you selected during the Quickstart process will be open, and you should follow the regular campaign setup process.

Step 5: Launch Your Campaign – When Buying Media through a Third-Party DSP

If you choose to use a third-party DSP as your media channel in the intro survey, after saving the creative, you’ll be directed to the “Ad Delivery Settings” page. Here, you can preview your creative, access the full Editor by clicking “Edit Creatives”, and download ad tags for your DSP.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before downloading the ad tags, ensure to enter your billing information. You can access the billing information page by opening the account dropdown menu in the platform header and selecting “Account and Payment Info.
