5. Create a campaign.

A campaign is a unit of ad optimization. You can set and adjust the budget, campaign period, spending distribution option and targeting of a campaign.

✔️ Dable’s algorithm learns and automatically optimizes campaign performance.
There is no need to set up media or audience targeting. Dable’s excellent personalized recommendation algorithm learns the campaign and automatically publishes high-performing content to target groups and media that are most likely to be interested in the ad content.

✔️ Set the campaign budget.
You can adjust the budget or stop running the ads at any time. Maximum daily budget can be set from ₩10,000 and ads will stop running once the budget is exhausted.

✔️ Choose the budget distribution option.
Selecting ‘Standard Distribution’ consumes your budget faster. If the daily budget is reached, ads will stop running so if the ad needs to be exposed consistently throughout the campaign period, please select ‘Even Distribution’.

✔️ Be careful not to create multiple campaigns with the same objective.
This creates unnecessary competition within the same advertiser. You can upload multiple contents within the same campaign by selecting ‘Multi-Contents Campaign’ after clicking ‘Create Campaign’ or select the existing campaign and click ‘Add Content’.

✔️Set the maximum CPC.
Maximum CPC is the maximum bid price that the advertiser is willing to pay everytime the user clicks on the ad. Advertiser is charged only when a user clicks on the ad and depending on vCPM, media and etc, various discounts are applied so the actual amount paid may be lower than the maximum CPC set. Rather than setting the maximum CPC high from the beginning, we recommend that you watch the performance and gradually adjust the CPC.

💡 If your ad isn’t getting enough exposure, check the CPC and ad content’s competitiveness. Ads that will be exposed to the same ad space are determined through real-time competition. Various factors,. such as the content response index and campaign’s maximum CPC, are used to determine which ad to expose. Increasing the CPC or registering content with a high response index within the budget is effective in securing more exposure opportunities. If you are curious about the average CPC in each industry, you can find it here.

6. Check the campaign performance.

Dable provides an ad performance report with tracked data. Significance of each data provided can be found here. Use performance reports to ensure that your ads are running efficiently and that they are achieving their goals and objectives. Also modify the advertising strategy, if necessary. Important indicators to check vary by campaign’s goal. Check here to see how you can measure the success of your campaign.
