Creating Ad Groups and Setting Targeting Goal

The Ad Group represents the tactic to fulfill your advertising goals. Each campaign can have multiple ad group tactics, each unique targeting strategy, budget and flight dates.

Step 1 Create ad group

You can either click NEW Ad Group button near the lower left corner to start the ad group creations process, or duplicate an existing ad group to get started.



Step 2 Choose targeting goal 

Once you see the new ad group screen, you'll need to choose a targeting option from the following:

  • Target by Location - real time location targeting
  • Target by Audience - target by device ids
  • Target by Weather - target based on current and future weather conditions




1. Target by Location

offers 3 powerful real-time targeting options for reaching  users based on GroundTruth’s location targeting capabilities



    • On Premise  - allows marketers to target consumers in real-time using GroundTruth’s accurate Blueprint(TM) polygons, which captures physical boundaries of retail locations. This allows for precise location targeting of visitors in-store, on-lot, or in a retail block.
