  10. 10. Rules of Engagement
  11. 11. Ad Network Rules of Engagement Hat Tip: twitter.com/kamobit ! 1. Ask for specific examples of publishers who will be showing your add. 2. What are the targeting capabilities of your network? 3. How do you determine the targeting parameters? Is it 1st party data? Do you infer them from a statistical model? 4. Where do the ad units show up? Ask for screenshots - this is really important. 5. How much traffic do you drive for your biggest advertiser on avg. per week, month, etc. 6. What do the most effective ads look like? Ask for examples they can send you. 7. What can I expect in terms of cost and conversion rate based on other advertisers with a similar audience/product? !
