Offers refer in general to products, services or specific brands. For example, an offer could refer to a product for sale on an E-tailer site (i.e., a book on Amazon site). Offers contain the basic information that is needed to set up the campaigns attached to them and track their performance.

Bucksense allows marketers to set up and track mobile and desktop campaigns. Defining the type of offer (web, mobile web or web responsive) not only helps you to classify your offers, but also determines the specific campaign settings that are directly tied to the offer type you have chosen.
For instance, Carrier targeting will be only available for campaigns associated to Mobile Offers.

Web, Mobile Web and Web Responsive Offers

1. Click Offers&Campaigns tab and select from the dropdown menu Add Offer.

 

2. Select the Advertiser and Offer Type: Web, Mobile Web or Web Responsive (Desktop or Mobile). If any advertiser has been created yet for this offer, you can add a new one from Advertiser Management.

3. Name your Offer and add the Landing Page URL. Landing Page Url should be the tracking link for your campaigns or one of your tracking links. How to add additional Landing Pages URL/ Tracking Links is explained below.

4. Choose the Conversion Tracking Method you want to implement in your campaigns: iFrame pixel, Image pixel and/or Server Postback. This is how the conversion notification will be communicated to Bucksense platform. To learn more about Tracking please click here.

Once you have saved this information, new sections related to the Offer Details and advanced tracking will appear to be edited.

Basic Settings

Offer Detail

Set a start date and an end date (optional) for your Offer, and select a reference Timezone from the dropdown menu.
Cap Settings Daily and/or Total for Impressions, Clicks and Budget can be added in the related fields.

  • Impressions: this is the maximum number of Daily/Total ad impressions that are allowed to be served for your Offer
  • Clicks: it defines the maximum number of Daily/Total clicks for your Offer
  • Budget: set the Daily/Total budget for your Offer

The campaign(s) associated with your offer will be paused as soon as one of the Offer cap is reached.
Please note that if you also set cap(s) in campaign settings (see here), the campaign will be paused when the lowest cap among the ones which have been set is reached.

Example 1. You added an Impression Total cap of 20000 to Offer settings. The associated campaigns (A and B) have 7000 and 8000 Impressions Total caps respectively.
The campaigns will be paused as soon as the 7000 and 8000 impressions will be delivered in the campaigns.

Example 2. You added a Click Daily cap of 20000 to the Offer settings. The associated campaigns (A and B) have respectively 25000 and 30000 Click Daily caps.
The campaigns will be paused as soon as a total of 20000 clicks will be delivered in the campaigns (regardless of the distribution between the campaigns).

Tracking URL

Tracking URL /Link is the mean that lets Bucksense attribute traffic from different Publishers and track clicks, conversions and other user’s information (country, device, etc.). In this section you can create tracking links to be used for the campaigns that each publisher serves. Learn more on How to create Tracking URLS article.

Conversion Tracking

In Conversion Tracking you can select the conversion event for the offer: default conversion event or any of the offer events set up in Events section. Once selected the conversion event, you can generate the Offer-based Pixel that you need to implement in Advertiser’s system or site to track conversions when a Global Pixel is not supported.
