In Campaigns, you can now create engaging videos about a specific neighborhood using real time data and run a social ad with it on Twitter and/or Facebook. These videos are known as Neighborhood SmartVideos and the neighborhood information is generated based on the current trends for that specific neighborhood, which allows you to truly be a local expert to any area.
To learn how to create a SmartVideo social ad, follow the steps below:
You must connect your social media account(s) through Command "Settings" before you create an ad campaign.
Facebook and Instagram ads are paid through a credit card you add on the "Payment Profile" page. It is important to set up your payment profile before you create a digital ad. The exceptions to how payments are handled are RealMailers, Google AdWords, and Twitter; these are paid on their respective sites.
