Tactics Overview

A tactic is a bundle of configuration parameters that aim to achieve a specific goal for your line item. In the DSP, these parameters include, but are not limited to:

  • Bid prices
  • Flight dates
  • Targeting rules (geography, device, time, context, demographic, etc.) and/or specific exchanges or domains where the tactic runs
  • Conversion tracking

Tactics work with creatives, which define what the viewer sees when your tactic runs.

Creating a Tactic

When you add a new tactic, you set up all the rules that define when and where ads are delivered.

To create a tactic:

  1. Go to Main Menu > Campaigns.

  2. Select a campaign.

  3. Select a media plan.

  4. Add the new tactic and set up your tactic options.

  5. Link the tactic to one or more creatives.

  6. Save the tactic.

If the tactic and group are online and any of the creatives are eligible to run (that is, if they have passed the quality review process), the tactic can bid on impressions.

If your creatives aren't ready yet, you can set up the tactic and save it, and then link it to the creatives when they're available.
