Campaign Lines: What is it and how can I use it?

Easier targeting for advertisements

Prior to the release of Campaign Lines,  an advertiser could target specific countries or states, but they could not easily do inclusions or exclusions in the same campaign.
A great example is if an advertiser wants to target the 48 contiguous US but not Alaska and Hawaii, they would need to create 48 separate target lines for each of the states.
Now with the release of Campaign Lines, the advertiser can create one line, target US, and exclude AK and HI.

CPC, CPM, CPA  are all available but  you can only apply one type of bid per campaign (all target lines under the campaign must agree.)

    • A valid list of ZIP codes can be downloaded from the modal window if a list of ZIP codes was previously uploaded
