How to Install the Ad Network Placement on Active Campaign
How to install the Ad Network Placement on ActiveCampaign
Ready to get your Paved ad network placement live in your ActiveCampaign email newsletter? In this post, we’re going to share with you the step-by-step instructions to get you there.
How to set up targeted ads in your newsletter template
So that your placement can be easily included in future newsletters, we recommend that you put ad placement HTML in your email template rather than in a one-off email.
How to configure your ad parameters
There are two parameters required to deliver an ad: a subscriber’s email and a campaign ID to uniquely identify the newsletter sent.
We don’t store the subscriber’s email address but we do store the campaign ID to track your earnings.
Select ActiveCampaign from the list of ESPs and Paved will automatically insert the appropriate merge tags in the code.
How to put the ad code in the header
In your Paved account, copy the provided header code for your ad placement.
On the ActiveCampaign home screen, click on ‘Campaigns’ on the left-hand menu.
Then click “Manage Templates” to create a new template or edit an existing one.
Once you’ve created your email template or selected an existing one to edit, click “Start from Scratch”.
Then select “Custom HTML” and click Continue.
Paste your code just above the </head> tag in the HTML editor on the left side of the screen. It should look something like what you see below.
After you're done, click ‘Save & Exit’ in the top right corner.
Where to install the ad placement code
The code below is for the ad placement. It must be pasted exactly in the right location within the same code editor used before.
Paved includes some existing code from your ad template to help you locate the correct location as shown below.
Next, click the ‘copy code’ button to copy the ad placement code.
On the ActiveCampaign home screen, click on ‘Templates’.
Then find the template you want to work with and click on “Edit”.
Then paste your code in the section indicated in the example provided in your Paved account. It should look something like what you see below.
After you're done, click ‘Save and Exit’ in the top-right corner of the Template Builder screen.
Testing your ad placement
Go back into your email editor and click on the gear wheel to open Template Settings.
Type in your email address in the ‘Send a Test Email’ column. Then click on ‘Send Test’ and “Close”.
Be sure to review the test email sent to your inbox to ensure formatting and ad placement look correct.
To remove code from a send, simply delete the main ad placement code. It is not necessary to remove the header code.
