With ExplorAds we can create two types of campaigns in terms of traffic: Push notifications & Pop for Mobile and Desktop.

  • Push notifications (Mobile & Desktop)
  • Pop (Mobile & Desktop)
  • Redirect/ Zero Click.

Push notifications & Pop (Mobile & Desktop)

Interface speaking, both formats are pretty much the same, we will see push notifications as you have to add more details at the end of the campaign configuration.

Go to your ExplorAds account and create the campaign based on the target you need and do not forget to add the LandingTrack name provided for the Campaign and the URL:
