Instructions for Ad Delivery

Steps of Material Delivery

1. Upload Link

When a campaign has been confirmed, an upload link will be sent for submitting the ad material. The upload link is campaign-specific and valid for display, cpc and video campaigns the entire duration of the campaign. For print campaigns the link is valid until Sanoma has handled the campaign and the status is sent.

The e-mail will be sent from noreply@admaterial.sanoma.com and the subject of the message will be of the form: "Campaign ID – Campaign name- Ad material upload – start date of the earliest line item".  Example ON-300703 - ADvendio Test Advertiser Oy AB - Ad material upload - 28-05-2021

2. Ad Material Upload Page

The material is delivered to Sanoma through the upload page. Go to the upload page by clicking on the link in the e-mail: “Upload material”.

This is what the upload page looks like.
