Introduction

This is a very easy to use Synchronized template.

User experience

User opens the page and sees standard leaderboard ad placed on the header of the page and two 130x600 and 160x600 size banners placed on side columns of the page. The banner accommodates a link to the predefined landing page.

Creative assets

The following items are to be delivered by a creative agency:

  • An HTML5 file for Standard Ad banner.
  • In case the browser is very old and does not support HTML5, the backup image (PNG/JPEG) is required (set in additional assets).
  • Banner assets containing manifest.json file and HTML file zipped together with images, scripts and other material.

NOTE: manifest.json file and HTML file should be in the root directory of the .zip file.

Customizing the banner

You are able to change "dimensions" of the Standard Image banner.

Manifest.json file

  • Manifest.json file should define the ad dimensions and the HTML file which is used as a banner source.
  • HTML file should include Adform HTML library which enables the banner to receive a clickTAG variable:
    <script src="https://s1.adform.net/banners/scripts/rmb/Adform.DHTML.js"></script>

Specifications

  • By clicking on the Ad user navigates to a landing page URL in a new window.
