Adnuntius Self-Service

Adnuntius Self-Service is a white-label self-service channel that makes it easy for publishers to offer self-service buying to advertisers, especially smaller businesses.

This section assumes that you have an agreement with Adnuntius, and have been granted access to admin.adnuntius.com. If you are looking for an offer, please contact us at support@adnuntius.com and we will help you out. There are three main steps:

  1. Create your publishing inventory.

  2. Make sure that ad requests are sent to your Adnuntius account.

  3. Set up the self-service portal.

Create Publishing Inventory

If you are already set up with Adnuntius Advertising and will not make any changes to your publishing inventory, you can skip this step.

What and why

Choices

1 Create an earnings account. Earnings accounts let you aggregate earnings that one or more sites have made, and is a tool to let you easily keep control of your earnings.

2 Create a site group. Site groups makes it easier to later target campaigns to groups of sites if you control many sites. If you only have one or a few sites you can skip this step.

3 Create a site. A site is a domain where you would like ads to go. We recommend that you start by creating one site so that you learn the process, and then you can create more later when you have worked through this list.

4 Create or rename your team. You already have a team created, but you can now rename it to your liking, and/or create more teams that control who should have access to what content.

5 Create an ad unit. An ad unit is a placement that can be filled with ads later by self-service advertisers.

Ensure that Ad Requests are Sent to Adnuntius

If you are already set up with Adnuntius Advertising and will not make any changes to your publishing inventory, you can skip this step. There are different ways of ensuring that ad requests are sent to Adnuntius, so that self-service advertisers can later buy this traffic.

Set Up the Self-Service Portal

What to do

Actions

1 The process starts with you sending us a bit of material (send to support@adnuntius.com) so that we can get your portal up and running. Click on the link to the right to understand what to send us. While we get you set up you can proceed with the points below.

Documentation

2 Create products. Products package dimensions, pricing, layouts and targeting so that buying ads can be made simple. Whenever a self-service advertiser creates a campaign, choosing a product is the first step in creating that campaign.

Start

3 Understand the user interface. When you have set up the portal you should get comfortable with the user interface by creating a test user, and to try booking a campaign. Also, you can refer to the documentation page we provide, or copy the text to your own domain to provide self-service advertisers with a user guide.

Documentation

4 Learn the approval process. When a self-service advertiser has created a campaign, then you as a publisher need to approve its creatives. This ensures that creatives do not contain illegal or unethical content, or anything you don't like.

5 Personalize emails being sent to new users, and to those who have forgotten their passwords. You can create multiple translations and target the emails to countries of each language.

6 Understand user management. While Adnuntius will be set up with the correct roles as part of the onboarding process, understanding how to manage users is an important part of providing good customer service.

Approval Process

Once a self-service advertiser has created and submitted a campaign you will need to approve the creative material before the campaign goes live. Go to https://admin.adnuntius.com/reviews and to see all creatives pending review. If you approve a creative then the advertiser's campaign will go live immediately, and the advertiser will be notified about the decision.

Reviewing creatives in the admin user interface.

If you click to reject a creative then you can choose a reason why this creative was rejected. The screenshot below shows you the range of reasons for rejection that you can apply. Once you have selected a reason then the advertiser will be notified of your decision, and they will also see the reason for rejection so that they can make the appropriate changes.

User Management

A self-service advertiser will be able to register on their own when visiting your portal. Once they have created and activated a user for themselves you should understand how you can manage this user in the event that any changes or support is needed.

Roles. When a self-service advertiser registers they will be set up with a network role and a team role. The network role will be an empy network role, so that the user cannot perform any actions to your network. The team role will contain the "Self-Service Own Advertising" rights. To understand users, roles and team in better detail, please see here.

Users. To see all users registered with your network, go to https://admin.adnuntius.com/admin/users. When you click on a user you will be able to perform a set of actions for that user (see example user below).

  • Change email address and name of the user. The display name is just the name that is displayed in the user interface.

  • Activate or de-activate the user. If you de-activate the user, then that user can no longer log in.

  • Update the user's password. Please note that if you update the user's password from within the admin user interface, that user will not be notified about changed passwords. If they should be notified, please tell the user to click the "forgot your password" link from your portal's login page.

  • Change the user's locale. Whenever users register they will be able to set their location, and this may determine the language of emails and the user interface. If they for any reason have set the wrong locale you can manually change it here.

  • You can also change their roles and teams, but this is not recommended as this may give users access to parts of the systems that they should not have.
