Lead delivery failures happen to the best of campaigns. From system outages to misconfigurations, consecutive lead delivery failures can cause auto-optimized bidding to bid down on your campaign from a drop in lead acceptance. If it goes on long enough, the models will train on this data which can affect campaign performance moving forward. Let’s catch that earlier! Now, the system will pause a campaign after 30 consecutive lead delivery failures, at which point you will be notified and can take action if necessary.

Have you ever wanted to, at a glance, know when your next invoice due date is? Or if you have an outstanding balance? Now, your company balance and invoice due date are available right when you sign in. Worried if your balance is going to exceed your credit limit? Fret not! Your company credit limit will also be displayed along with your company projected balance, so you will know before the system automatically pauses those who have exceeded their credit limit or have outstanding balances after a given grace period.

Sometimes you have to set a new bar of standards. If it isn’t good enough, move on! That’s exactly what we have rolled out with the Min Question eCPM located in the monetization configuration of your placement. If the next question’s predicted value is less than the minimum question eCPM set, it will end the placement and move on to bigger and better things. This will benefit you if there is something potentially more valuable after the placement. Try split testing different minimum question eCPM values to see which one works for you.

As a Publisher, using the CPA Margin Postback tool has been frustrating only being able to set a CPA and Margin Percentage by UTM Source. So 2000 and late! Now, you can add rules to set a specific CPA and/or Margin based on additional parameters for your sub traffic sources. These include utm_campaign, utm_term, utm_content, and utm_medium and will override the default CPA and Margin Percentage set on utm_source.

Suppression metrics up until this point have been a mysterious creature. Looking up these metrics required checking them in a different system or hitting up Client Success. Fret no more. Now, when setting up a suppression URL or file for your campaign, you will have these very metrics at your fingertips. Now you can see Accepted %, Rejected %, Failed %, Timeout %, and Average Response Times. While there are many reasons why your campaign could be receiving less volume, next time check suppression metrics to see if your rejection percentages or average response times have increased.

You are very familiar with how to set a budget cap on your campaign, but most of the time it requires some math (#hard) if you need to cap your campaign by the desired number of leads. Well, now you can do both! In the campaign settings tab, we have added Lead Cap to the Budget Cap section. You can now set the number of leads you would like your campaign to acquire before it is paused and reset according to the day, month, lifetime, and/or hour configuration. With great lead cap power, comes great budget responsibility. Please make sure to have a thoughtfully set budget— If your system has outages, we will continue to send leads until the Accepted Lead or Budget Cap is met— whichever comes first. Important: You will still be billed for all leads sent.

Previously, Initial Bid was required on the settings tab of a campaign. This caused some disconnect and confusion from how this actually affects targets. Ahh, younger selves. Initial Bid has moved from the campaign settings page to the targeting page. Advertisers are now required to enter their bid for all new targets when they are targeting/retargeting. The targets that are created without the user’s input (i.e new placements, properties, etc.), will take the highest bid of the campaign’s targets (both inactive and active).

10/10 - Would campaign again!
Ever ask yourself, “How the heck is my campaign doing!?” Well, now your campaign will have scoring metrics based on a 1-10 scale to help you gauge your campaign performance. Located on the bids tab in your campaign, 1 indicates the lowest score and 10 is the highest. For SOIs, you will have Acceptance % Score, which will give you a rating on your current Lead Acceptance Rate (Accepted Lead %) based on a 0-100% scale. For Linkouts, you will have a Click-through Rate Score (CTR Score). For both SOIs and Linkouts you will have an eCPM Score. CTR and eCPM scores are based off of how well your CTR % and eCPM is doing relative to your competition in ZAN. By looking at these two scores, you will now be able to see at a glance how your campaign is doing comparatively.

You have a list of people you want to ask a question or show an ad to? We gotchu. Just upload the list (either phone number or email addresses) in the suppression tab and make your campaign target just the people on it. Tl;dr the opposite of a suppression list.

Our invoices got an upgrade!
We’re excited to introduce the latest updates to Zeeto’s billing process. We’ve heard your feedback and are excited to announce our new detailed invoices and accounting reports in the ZAN platform.
Invoice line items got a makeover. Gone are the days of general ZAN “RON” and “O&O” Leads. You can now find your “Payable to Zeeto” cost per campaign detailed out on every invoice.
Better reporting visibility. You can view and cross-check past invoice details in ZAN too! Head over to the “Accounting” tab in the Reports section to see your total cost by campaign and amounts payable to Zeeto. You can also travel back in time and filter by date to get that all-important historical data.
Note: For additional information about historical data, please contact your account manager.
No more manual roll-ups. Have more than a single ZAN account? No sweat! You can find the same Advertiser and Publisher Reports in the shared client spaces within Looker. Use these reports to access roll-up data for all of your individual Zeeto accounts into one usable report.
“Cost” is the total ad spend for your campaign in the network, calculated by multiplying the bid rate times each conversion and then summing those amounts for the time period of the report.
“Payable to Zeeto” is the percentage of cost that is owed to Zeeto. This amount is determined by multiplying revenue share times cost. Revenue share amounts are different for cases when your campaigns convert on network properties and when they convert on a property that is owned-and-operated (O&O) by you.
When Cost and Payable to Zeeto amounts are the same...
In this scenario, your campaign(s) only converted on network properties and therefore Zeeto will collect 100% of your ad spend to pay the Publisher(s) after Zeeto takes our revenue share.
NOTE: If you are only an advertiser in ZAN, your Cost and Payable to Zeeto amounts will always match.
When Cost and Payable to Zeeto amounts are different...
In this scenario, some or all of your campaign(s) converted on your own O&O properties, meaning Zeeto only collects a portion of your ad spend based on our revenue share.
NOTE: If you are also a Publisher in ZAN, you will likely see these variable cost amounts on your invoices.
“Is Related” Dimension… Yes vs. No?
As an Advertiser, you may also pivot your cost data by the Publisher relationship using the “Is Related” dimension in Looker. Your “RON” cost is shown when “Is Related = No” and “O&O” cost when “Is Related = Yes.” Easy as that!

In this network, the competition is stiff. Setting up campaigns to win is key! After letting a campaign run long enough to have had a fair chance of succeeding, ZAN deactivates it if it isn't performing well for you. Top causes include things like incorrect or wonky attribute targeting (hint: this is the most common issue), CPA campaigns with pixel issues, and bidding that isn't competitive enough to gain volume. Failed status is a point of no return for that campaign. If you think it should have done better, and may have just had one of the issues mentioned above, you can create a new campaign in its place with the adjustments to give v2.0 a better chance. As always, please contact your account manager or our client success department for help if you need it.

Hold on to your hats everyone, attribute targeting just got a big update. Move at mach speeds as you select multiple attributes and assign them to a group with one click. This is a big win for discoverability since the increased real estate allows us to display more attributes on the page along with their definitions. Making sure you target your exact audience has never been easier. We're not done yet though, stay tuned for future improvements that we think you're going to love.

LTV pixels are a great way to monitor how awesome your campaign is performing, and we have the metrics to prove it. On the bids tab you can find conversions, revenue, cost per conversion, conversion rate, and ROI for the "purchase" LTV pixel. Find the targets that give you the best ROI and adjust bids accordingly.

Big news advertisers, all creatives added to ZAN must be approved by a Zeeto admin. The review process should be complete within two business days, barring the zombie apocalypse. While your creative is pending approval it will not be displayed, we run a tight ship here, so we need to make sure the ads on our network are the cream of the crop. Keep in mind, if you only have one creative, you won't be able to set your campaign active until the creative has been approved. Don't worry though, if your creative is denied, one of our friendly Zeeto agents will reach out and work with you to iron out any kinks.

Retargeting campaigns just got a major upgrade. If you need to add in a few more zip codes or just want to tweak your age targeting, you no longer have to fill out the entire targeting form again.
