If you used a 3rd party authoring tool, such as a code editor or Adobe Animate, to build your Standard Banner, proceed to set up your ad in Sizmek Ad Suite (SAS).
Note: If you used Ad Builder to build your Standard Banner this set up is not required and you can proceed to sharing your ad. For more information, see Share Your Ads.
Before uploading your ad to SAS, verify that you have completed these prerequisites.
The folder that contains your assets does not include unnecessary files. For example:
Unused assets such as images, videos, or fonts.
Work files such as
Hidden files such as
Create a Workspace (zip file) for each ad. It is recommended that the zip file name matches the final name of the ad.
Each Workspace contains its default image (named Default or Backup). This image should be optimized and lightweight.
Note: Naming the Workspace and the default image are especially useful when using the Ad Wizard tool to bulk upload your work; the Ad Name field and the Default field will be filled in automatically. For more information, see Set up Multiple Ads Using Ad Creation Wizard.
Setting up your ad requires that you start by uploading your Workspace to the Assets Library. Then, set up your ad based on the Workspace that you uploaded.
Select Creative > Ads.
Click New Ad > Blank Ad.
Give your ad a meaningful name.
In the Ad Format list, select Standard Banner.
In the Creative Assets > Main Assets tab:
Select the Workspace folder and navigate to an uploaded Workspace.
Tip: SAS will use this folder as the default for the next step.
Select the default image.
For a clickable creative, it is recommended that you select the Enable Click-through Overlay check box to inject a transparent button that will cover the entire ad.
Note: If you do not follow this recommendation, you can manually add a click-through in your creative. For more information, see Create a Standard Banner in a 3rd Party Authoring Tool (Legacy Method).
You can upload and set up multiple ads in a single process using the Ad Creation Wizard. For more information, see Set up Multiple Ads Using Ad Creation Wizard.
