Creating a Campaign

To create a digital campaign in LEADING Media proDigi, select a template campaign and click the "Online" button. Select the necessary items from the template and copy them by clicking on the yellow plus sign.
Now you can create the new campaign by filling in the fields for clients, customers and product. Then click F5 and enter the code for the new campaign. Now add the budget.
In the detailed view of the campaign, you can edit the items already copied from the template and adjust them where necessary.

Modify Positions

Clicking on a position will now take you into the detailed view. The parameters on the left side of the dialog box include the fields media group, order type, advertising medium, website, ad form, performance type (CPC,CPM,CPV,CPX,FIX), performance volume and placement (ROC,RON,ROS,...) With a click in the drop-down menu you can make your selection here.
On the right side of the online dialogue window you will find the selection options for visibility tracking, audience verification, creative format, channel, streaming, adserving and target group, which can also be accessed via dropdown.
These parameters are generated either from the agency-specific master data or from your media tariffs and have an influence on the setup costs of the campaign.
proDigi can, of course, map all common digital advertising formats that you work with in your digital campaigns.

Calculate Setup Costs, Additional Charges & Deductions

The price of the item is automatically calculated based on quantity, format, channel and placement. You can further control the proposed conditions in the "Planning - Surcharges/Discounts" dialog.
The setup costs for all positions of the campaign are determined automatically and displayed as separate rows at the end of the campaign. For example, the costs for ad serving and setup are automatically added as positions.

Generate Order & Cost Plan

All the details of the campaign have been finalized, now it's time to place the orders. To do this, click on the printer icon in the menu bar, and under "Order" select the option "Proposal - Preview" and click "next". Clicking the "Print" button will take you to a printable PDF.
