Advertisers are required in order to create advertisement campaigns.

Advertiser List

Advertiser List
Advertiser List

A list of advertisers can be retrieved by clicking on the "Advertiser list" option under the "Advertisements" section of the menu. The list will only show the advertisers your agent has access to. Admin agents have access to all the advertisers assigned to agents in their agency, while normal agents only have access to advertisers assigned specifically to themselves.

Use the filters above the list to refine the list of advertisers:

  • Agent Lookup: Use this text box to filter the advertisers according to the agent they are assigned to.
  • Search: Use this text box to search for a string in the list of advertisers.
  • Status: Use this combo box to search for advertisers with a specific status.

You can also use a combination of the above mentioned search filters to further refine the list.

Add Advertiser

Add Advertiser

To create an advertiser, click on the "New Advertiser" button above the advertiser list.

Fields to be completed:

  • Agent: Select an agent from the dropdown menu that will be responsible to manage this advertiser.
    Notes: This option is only available for admin agents. Normal agents always create advertisers assigned to themselves.
  • Name: The name of the advertiser. Be as descriptive as you need, as this is the main way to identify the advertiser on reports.
  • Notes: Any further description of the advertiser.
  • Contact: The name of the contact person for the advertiser.
  • Email: The email address of the contact person for the advertiser.
  • Status: The advertiser's status. Valid options are active, blocked and deleted.

Once you have completed all the fields, click on the "Submit" button. On success, you will automatically be redirected to the "Campaign List" for the newly created advertiser. If there were any errors on the form, you will be asked to fix the errors before continuing.

Edit Advertiser

Edit Advertiser

To edit any existing advertiser's details, locate it in the advertiser list, then click on the "Edit" link in the "Options" column for the advertisers you wish to edit. Make your changes and click on the "Submit" button to store your changes.

Note: For existing advertisers, once you are done editing you will be redirected back to the Advertiser management screen, and not the Campaign management screen as is done when creating a new advertiser.

Campaigns List for Advertiser

To retrieve a list of campaigns for an advertiser, locate it in the advertiser list, then click on the "Campaigns" link in the "Options" column for the advertisers in question. This will bring you to the Campaign List screen with the advertiser filter set to the advertiser in question. You can now create, edit or deactivate campaigns for the advertiser in question.

Deleting Advertisers

To delete an advertiser, locate it in the advertiser list, then click on the "Delete" link in the "Options" column for the advertisers in question.

StreamAds does not allow you to delete advertisers entirely. This is mostly to avoid losing any vital advertisement statistics. Deleting an advertiser simply put it in the "Deleted" state and removes it from your default list of advertisers. You can always see this advertiser again by setting the "Status" filter on the advertiser list to "Deleted".

Because StreamAds never deletes the actual advertiser record, you can restore it if you should wish to do so.

Example: Suppose ran advertisements for an advertiser months ago, but in the meantime you have deleted the advertiser. If they happen to return to run another campaign, you can avoid the effort of creating a new advertiser by simply re-activating the deleted advertiser.

To re-active a previously deleted advertiser: Set the status filter on the advertiser list to "Deleted", locate the advertiser in the list of deleted advertisers, then click on the "Activate" link in the "Options" column for the advertisers in question.

Once you have activated an advertiser, you will automatically be redirected to the screen showing only active advertisers.
