Creating Video Ads on NG Adverts follows the same procedure of creating other types of ads. The only difference is in choosing the correct Pricing Type, Ad Type and also ensuring that the video upload specification is met.
To get started, follow the steps below.
Log into your Advertiser account.
Click on the Ads menu and then on the Create Ad sub-menu
On the Create Ad page, select CPV as your Pricing type. Once you do so, the Ad Type will automatically change to Video Ad.
From the Ad Info section, fill in the different fields appropriately.
Fill in the name of your campaign in the Name field. This field is not publicly displayed; it simply helps you identify the different ad campaigns in your account.
In the Display Url field, you can fill in your website address or you can use that field for your Call To Action (CTA) text. For instance, if you want people to subscribe to your social media channel, you can write Subscribe To My Channel in the Display Url field.
In the Click Url field, fill in the link you want people to be redirected to when they click on your CTA text or whatever you filled in your Display Url field. This link can be your Whatsapp group link, your social media pages or any landing page of your choice.
In the Video File field, click on the Choose File button to upload your video ad. Please pay attention to the following specifics at this point:
- Your video file must be saved in any of the following formats – .mp4, .flv, .wmv, .mpg, .avi, .webm, or .ogg
- Your video file size must not be larger than the allowed maximum size
- The duration of your video must not be more than the allowed maximum time
- Your video aspect ratio should be saved either as 16:9 or 4:3 format. 16:9 format videos are large sized videos which fit well into desktop devices, while the 4:3 format videos fit into all device sizes (desktop, tablets and mobile)
If you want to resize your video into any of the aspect ratio formats, you can use an online service like FileConverto
Once you are done with all the requirements in Step 1, click on the Next button to move on to the other steps; fill in the parameters as you please and submit your ad for approval at the last step.
