  3. Select the Private Workspace from the drop-down menu that this campaign will be assigned to. To learn more, read the Workspaces: Overview article.

  4. From the Traffic source drop-down menu select a traffic source that you have previously created. The traffic source's name will be automatically added as a prefix to the campaign's name.

  5. (Optional) Select a tag from the Country tag drop-down menu. If the campaign is intended for multiple geos, leave the Global option selected.

    Note

    Voluum Info: This option only determines which flow templates (including landers and offers) will be available to select from the drop-down menu. If you select one country, for example United States, all the flow templates with the United States and Global country label will being displayed during selection.

  6. Provide a unique and meaningful name for your campaign in the Campaign name text field. The name of the campaign in Voluum is based on the following pattern: {selected_traffic_source} - {country_label or Global} - {your_unique_custom_name}. You can use emojis in your campaign name: simply right-click on the Campaign name text field and select Emojis option from the menu.

  7. (Optional) To enhance search functionality, you can always add tags to the campaign defined by you. Keep in mind that tags can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores.

  8. Select one of the Cost model radio buttons. If you have selected to track costs with one of the four cost models (CPC, CPM, CPA, RevShare), provide also the cost value in the Cost value text field. To learn more about tracking costs, read the Track Costs and Payouts article.Track Costs and Payouts

  9. Select a tracking method for the first transition. This is the method that will be used to track a visitor from an ad to a Voluum campaign funnel (a landing page or offer). Note that you can select a different tracking method for the second transition in the next tab.

  10. (Optional) The Conversion reporting to traffic source option can be used if you want to override your traffic source postback URL or redirect pixel settings. This override gives you an option to differentiate between conversion types when firing back information about conversion to your traffic source platform. Read the Custom Traffic Source Postback URLs article to learn more.

  11. (Optional) You can add notes to your campaign regarding its content or goals.

  12. You have provided all basic information for your campaign. Now, you are going to define the campaign's destination click the Next button to go to the Destination tab.
