July 25, 2021 SendMyAd & Virtual Publisher Update Release Notes

Published by

New Digital Ad Unit Type: Native Ads
This new module is our largest addition to SendMyAd in some time. A new digital ad unit type of “Native Ad” is now available within digital media profiles. This new feature will eliminate the burdens of collecting and checking requirements for the collection of multiple assets that make up native and social media ads. Native Ad units can be comprised of several assets (texts fields, images, videos, etc.), each of which have their own specific requirements. Also, layouts can be created within a layout manager in order for both publishers and advertisers to visualize the final ad. We will even be providing the ability to import native ad social media templates that we’ve created for ease of use!

We’re eager to engage our customers in beta testing this new development for us. Please contact us if you’d like to gain access and learn more about this feature.



New Digital Ad Unit Type: Audio Ads
A new digital ad unit type of “Audio Ad” is now available which allows for .wav and .mp3 files to be preflighted against file duration.


New Feature: Ad Request Notification Reminder / Sequential Notifications
When creating a materials request, a new item has been added to the form in which users can specify sequential email notification reminders every [x] amount of days. This feature will automate the process of re-requesting unfulfilled materials requests as materials deadlines approach. If you are new to materials requests and want to learn more about their benefits, Please contact us.


Ad Creator Feature: Static Image Replacement within Templates
This feature allows publishers to replace static images in their Ad Creator templates and have any pickups reference the updated images.
