Being a tool of advertising.com, you can create an account by following a step-by-step process. However, you will be required to do a few things before you can set up an account.
- Set budget: The website will ask you to set your budget during the account creating process. Setting a budget solely depends on your financial strength. You can start from as low as $200 to $1000 a month, for instance.
- CPM or CPC: You need to choose whether you want to pay per ad or per click. Per ad (CPM) is gaining ground these days, but CPC is found to be better when it comes to getting more clicks with bidding on certain sites like social media networking.
- Decide the ad timing: You will have to choose certain time slots for ads to appear on your targeted websites.
