With MANTIS, you can manage existing ad campaigns that you have already sold direct.
For example, let's say you have a handful of existing advertisers that you already have contracts with, but you also want to try out MANTIS to see if you can make more money by tapping into our network as well as selling on your own inventory. This strategy makes a lot of sense, and we have built support for you to do just that. Here's how:
By default, any self-service campaign you create will rotate evenly among other campaigns on our network. If that agreement you have with the advertiser prevents such rotation, you should look into the options we have available below.
You can alter the above behavior by changing the priority setting to show your campaign ahead of ones provided by our network.
Note: Once a campaign has been shown on the page, it will not repeat unless there are no other network campaigns available to fill the remaining zones.
When creating your zones, we provide an option called “Direct Targeting” which will require ads to explicitly target that location in order to be served (meaning campaigns provided by our network will never show). When creating self-service campaigns you must call out those zones for this functionality to work properly.
