How do I create ads and upload content?

It’s easy to create ads and upload content with the Native Ads’ Titan platform!

Uploading Ads

Learn about Native Ads’ three different options for uploading and creating unique native advertising campaigns.

  1. Create multiple ads at once using the Bulk Ad Creator
  2. Use an RSS feed URL and turn web page articles/content into ads quickly and easily
  3. Create one ad at a time by uploading them Individually

These three options are all located on the Add Inventory page.

Bulk Ad Creator

  • It is recommended that the Bulk Ad Creator be used to upload and create ads
  • Quick and optimal results
  • Upload up to 10 images/thumbnails and 10 titles/headlines
  • Total of 100 ads can be created at one time
  • Great for A/B testing and quick results

To use the Bulk Ad Creator:

  1. Add the titles/headlines for the campaign (max of 10, max of 70 characters each)
    Note: If the titles/headlines do not match the images/thumbnails, the ads will be denied. Please see the Native Ads ad approval guidelines for more information.
  2. Descriptions are optional but could help increase CTR (Click Through Rate).
  3. Paste the URL for the Landing Page in the “Destination URL” field.
    Note: Do not append the Native Ads UTM tracking code to the destination URL. It has already been appended to the URL from the Tracking Codes section. If the tracking code is attached here, it will cancel out the previously set code and will not work.
  4. Add the images/thumbnails for the ads

    • Upload up to 10 at a time
    • Drag the folder/images to the blue area
    • Larger dimensions for images are preferred

    Note: Images can only be up to 3.5MB and must be at least 400 X 400 pixels but for best results, use the largest dimensions possible. We recommend images with dimensions of 1200 X 627 pixels in JPG, PNG, or non-GIF formats.

  5. The uploader matches the images/thumbnails with the titles/headlines and generates a total number of ads to be createdImage-Aupload-Screen2
