How to create a display ad – in 2 minutes!

1. Upload your video/videos in highest possible quality. The application automatically compresses it to the correct size..

2. Upload a transparent png featuring logo, CTA and text.

3. Follow the step-by-step guide and fill out a few fields.

4. Hit go! And get your ad tags instantly. 

Not sure if your videos have the right quality? Upload them and see if it works – what you see is what you get! You don't pay until you start running your ad, so feel free to experiment!

Designing the assets

One video in optional size and one png image in the same size as ad-format. Choose the dimensions you want for your ad and upload your video. Then, add a transparent graphical layer with the logo, text and CTA. And you’re done! 

Sometimes one clean video can work as a background for many ad sizes so try one out in all your chosen ad sizes before making one for each ad size to see if it looks good. 

Designing for mobile formats, double the png's pixel dimensions. E.g if the banner size is 320x250px make the png-image 640x500px. The weight of the png is not important, the system will automagically transform it into the right weight.

You can use subtitles if you want, but make sure that the image overlay does not interfere. 

Delivery

Once you have finished the step-by-step process, you will receive the ad tags straight on the screen. You can pick them one by one and traffic them immediately or copy the entire set of different ad tags and distribute them to your receivers of choice.

You will also get all ad tags sent to your selected e-mail along with the preview- and dashboard links.

Publishing the ads

You can choose to purchase your ad programmatically or I/O, where you send the tags directly to your publicist of choice. We provide ad tags for both purposes.

Where can I use this ad format?

Programatically or Direct (I/O) anywhere.

Preview your ads

Not sure if your videos are in the right quality? Upload them and see if it works – what you see is what you get! You don’t pay until you start running your ad, so feel free to experiment!
