CREATIVE SPECIFICATIONS

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:

Since Insider Travel Report (ITR) is an audience-based advertising platform, we must host all creative assets. Below are the standard unit sizes for each sponsorship.
 

Please submit appropriate creative files, jpg, animated gif files or png in 72 DPI, according to spec requirements, as attachments via email, along with the click-through URL for each unit and any click trackers and view tags. Creative must be supported by most recent browser and 2 versions prior. 

View Tags:

Insider Travel Report (ITR) supports Standard Tags ONLY.

Standard tags are a type of placement tag. They only serve for placements with dimensions of 1x1. Standard tags use an anchor tag (<A HREF>) and an image tag (<IMG SRC>).

Make sure that these tags are always served together, with the A HREF tag first, then the IMG SRC tag.

 

Sample of a Standard Tag:

<A HREF="https://ad.doubleclick.net/ddm/jump/Nxxxx.site-keyname/Byyyyyyy.Pzzzz; sz=widthxheight;kw=[keyword];ord=[timestamp]?">
 
<IMG SRC="https://ad.doubleclick.net/ddm/ad/Nxxxx.site-keyname/Byyyyyyy.Pzzzz;sz=widthxheight;ord=[timestamp];dc_lat=N;dc_rdid=Czzzz;tag_for_child_directed_treatment=I?" BORDER=0 WIDTH=X HEIGHT=Y ALT="Click Here"></A>
