Embedding your media kit to your website's advertising page means that when advertisers click the link to your ad portal or advertising page, they are directed to your media kit. You are able to choose a custom domain for your media kit with this option and give all users attached to your account the ability to log in through this page.
You can embed your media kit with DNS-Forwarding in less than 5-minutes. All DNS-forwarded media kits are automatically given an SSL certificate, which shows your advertising page is a trusted site. If you want to know more about what this means, check it out on the official Ocast blog in this post.
Create a new advertising page with your media kit.
1. Log in and go to your media kit's brand settings.
2. Scroll down to your embed settings.
3. In your embed settings, you will see a blank form like this.
4. Enter your custom domain.
For example: mynewsubdomain.mydomain.com
If you do not see the blank form, click the link to activate.
Now go to your domain registrar.
1. Login to your domain registrar (i.e., Loopia, GoDaddy, etc). In the DNS editor, create a new subdomain with the same name you entered in Ocast.
Enter the following settings:
Now on your website, you can link to this custom advertising page with your media kit. By linking somewhere easy to find, advertisers can find your advertising solutions and brand information in 1 click.
Note: Ad portals with DNS Forwarding or iFrame already in use before September 2017 should follow these steps again to update your ad portal to have access to the latest features and functionality from Ocast.
Depending on your registrar, it may take up to 24 hours before your new subdomain is working and your Ad Portal is fully functioning. It often can be up and running within an hour.
Add Pop-ups and track your media kit's traffic
This includes from Google Analytics so you can track the traffic to your advertising page.
Here is how:
1. Scroll to the bottom of the embed settings.
3. Save and you're done!
