Before ads show up on the MANTIS ad network, they are reviewed to make sure they meet our Advertising Policies. Typically most ads are reviewed within 24 hours, although in some cases it may take longer (e.g., National holidays, ads with controversial messaging, etc.).
What factors do we consider during review?
During the ad review process, we'll check your creative's graphics, messaging, and targeting settings for accuracy and relevancy [in addition to the content on your ad's landing page]. Your ad may not be approved if the landing page content isn't fully functional, contains obstructive pop-ups, doesn't match the product/service promoted in your ad or doesn't fully comply with our Advertising Policies.
What happens when a creative is approved?
If all of the required ad units are approved by MANTIS, your campaign will begin running immediately (unless you have chosen a start date in the future).
At any time, you can check the status of your pending campaign/creatives via your MANTIS Campaigns dashboard, which is accessible by logging in to your MANTIS account.
What happens if a creative is disapproved?
If your ad is declined, we'll send you an email with details that explain why. Using the information provided in your disapproval email, we invite you resubmit your creatives for review once you get a chance to edit your creative(s) to be compliant with our Advertising Policies.
