How to create creatives in the Ad Builder

On the “My campaigns” page, click the Creatives for smart banners link and click the +Add creatives button in the page that opens. The Ad Builder window will open.

On the left side of the window, choose the subject of your creative. The subject must match the business feed's type. Depending on the chosen subject, a number of layouts and dimensions for creatives will become available. By default, all possible options for creatives for a selected subject will be selected. This will allow you to serve smart banners on all available sites. If you need to specify specific layouts or sizes, use the Select button.

On the right side of the window, add a logo, configure your color scheme and the auto-scrolling of product offers. In the Legal information section, enter information about the seller (name of the legal entity, the OGRN and registered address of the store), which is required according to the law “On Advertising”. You can also add information about a special offer. Please note that the text of the special offer must contain no false information.

Changes that you have made will be visible immediately in the preview area. Images of product offers, their prices and names will be uploaded later from your feed.

When you have finished working with the creatives, click Create creatives. A group of creatives will be added to the library.

When creating a group of smart banners, add creatives from the library. You don't have to add all creatives from a group. To do this, click Show all and choose the required creatives. A separate smart banner will be created for each creative based on the uploaded feed.

Editing creatives

At any time you can change created creatives. To do this, on the “My campaigns” page, click on the Creatives for smart banners link. In the library, choose creatives or a group of creatives belonging to the same subject, and click on Edit. For example, you can change the logo in all creatives for “Retail”.
