Right audience, right message, right time. A successful advertising campaign is one that uses targeting to achieve this – ensuring relevancy whilst also minimising wastage.  

There is a vast range of targeting solutions available through the Summit UI, which we will outline below. It is important to note that of course there is always a trade-off between targeting and reach, so we advise careful consideration on what is truly required for the campaign goals.

The setup for all targeting is done on flight level on the targeting tab as seen below.


Please note that all applied targeting must be met for delivery, and with more targeting you get smaller reach.
