Sizmek’s Dynamic Creative allows advertisers to run personalized multi-market prospecting and retargeting campaigns. The ready-to-use Dynamic Creative Templates help make this more accessible to creative agencies who are taking their initial steps into Dynamic Creative, and are happy to use a pre-defined template to get them started. They can also be used by Trading Desks and other advertisers who want to use Dynamic Creative, but don’t have the benefit of a Creative Shop or Flash Developer.

Geodata

The Sizmek Geo Data Ad Feature demonstrates how to access geolocation data made available through the EB.API and how to use that data with Gizmo location services. The four API data points are Country Code, Region Code, City Code and Zip Code. By passing these codes to one of the three Gizmo location services, developers can retrieve a wide array of location data. With this data, clients can create customized and targeted marketing campaigns that more effectively reach their audience.

HTML5 Autoplay

The HTML5 Autoplay Ad Feature allows you to bypass mobile device restrictions and automatically play your video by replacing it with a sprite image sequence. This image sequence can then simulate the inline video experience seen on desktop environments.

Our Image Gallery come with three different flavors. The fixed size, auto size, and the fullscreen.

These actions are triggered on a percentage-based threshold, which is fully customizable. This allows the user to see the full intended experience, regardless of where the ad is placed on the page.

Video Tracking

Sizmek’s new Video Tracking Feature allows you to easily add Sizmek Video Tracking to any HTML5 creative that uses a video element, without needing to start from a particular “video template” or re-develop the video portions of your code you may already have in place. This guide should provide a complete understanding of how to assign your video asset to the Sizmek Video Module, and by doing so, allow developers to track video interactions, both manually and automatically, for all their video assets.

Note that as this is designed to be added into creative, rather than serve as a starting point, there is no downloadable workspace, but rather there are many code snippets that can be copied/pasted from throughout the guide as needed.

Weather

Weather

The Weather Ad Feature loads current and future forecasts into your creative. Users can track the weather and change the creative based on the temperature or the weather type. The Weather Ad Feature is based on the HAMweather Aeris API, and works in HTML5 and Flash (AS2 and AS3). The Weather Ad Feature detects the location of the audience and displays weather that is accurate according to their location. Please note that this is a premium ad feature and there may be additional costs associated with its use; reach out to your Sizmek account rep for more info.
