Campaign Objectives and KPIs

When adding a new campaign, the buyer (agency contact) configures the advertising Objectives. The Objective creates the campaign goal with selected Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Basis Platform displays suggested KPIs based on the Objective. (Basis Platform allows up to three Objectives per campaign plan.)

Create New

The agency contact creates new campaign under Create campaign. You enter the fields and create the campaign directing you to a new media plan.

The contact also has the option of copying an existing campaign including the media plan. After modifying and saving the campaign, the copied media plan is available for modification. The copy creates a new campaign. Copying an existing streamlines the process when the campaigns are similar or identical.
