Right after selecting your type of ad we can start creating the Campaign.

The first steps will be Adding your Campaign Name — REMEMBER it must be the one LandingTrack provide you with, Your Destination URL with your Campaign Tokens. Then we can select the Campaign Optimization:

1- Using the Bid optimizer

2- Not using it.

If you prefer to select the bid optimizer you should set up the following conditions:

1- Cost per visit: Core Bid (CPV)

2- Multiplier: SelfAdvertiser Algorithm will bid according to this condition setting up a max bid per visit base on the condition.Example: “Our bid is: 0,0008$ in case we have a conversion their algorithm will increase the bid (only if it's below your CPA Goal) at 0,0024 maximum. (multiple per 0,0008$ x 3)”

3- Your CPA Goal: basically, how much are you getting paid by conversion.

4- Your Daily budget: Add your daily budget but (Our recommendation — leave this to LandingTrack Optimization Rules here)

Next options will be for Geo (Location): Notice that, with SelfAdvertiser you can see the estimation of traffic on your right side of the screen.

If you have selected the option: Bid optimizer (As the example we are showing to you) then you must notify SelfAdvertiser for each conversion; So you should enable “Track conversion” option and for the Point 2 Postback URL : Copy the Postback and come back to LandingTrack Platfrom> Menu side Traffic Sources > SelfAdvertiser Edit button > Outgoing Postback and paste it there but, if you did not select Bid optimizer option then, is up to you to notify them or not.
