2. Campaign Basic Info.

There are 4 steps in mobile campaign creation, first you have to give it a name and the preview URL that you are going to advertise.

Select campaign type in CPM , CPC (keep in mind our future update will be include mobile CPI).
In this tutorial I will select CPM just for demo purpose.

For the Daily Budgets and Start Date, End Date, you can just leave it by default, because you can update this setting later in campaign omptization.

In this case, we use IAB standard image banner.  All you need to do is, make sure your banner files size are under 40KB.  If that so, you can simply Drag and Drop the image banner from your desktop to the upload creatives area.

In this demo, we are going to use one of our advertising clients mobile apps promotion creatives for demo purpose.

After upload the image banners, the system should appear a box wrapping each of the creatives. Under the banner, you will see a text box for you to input the Click URL.
