Uploading an ad to specle
1. Search for a media owner in the search bar - Primesight, or Clear Channel. The search bar at the top of the page can be accessed anywhere on the site.
2. Click Send Ad next to the format you are supplying.
3. Fill in the required fields as indicated by the blue mark. The required sections may vary for different media owners.
Advertiser - the company being advertised.
Headline - the headline of the ad, or, if you are doing a campaign, it could be the name of the campaign.

4. Click on Choose File at the bottom of the page and choose the artwork you want to send.
5. Click on Continue, and your ad will be preflighted against the specifications of the media owner. If it is a video it will be transcoded to the required format (MP4 with 10mb/s H264 encoding).
6. Error messages will appear if you attempt to upload an ad that does not match the specifications listed on Specle. Our system will check your format (Static: PNG or JPEG. Video: MP4, WMV, MOV, WEBM, MKV or AVI), size, and resolution. If the resolution is set as higher than 72ppi when exporting, the dimensions will differ from the specs.
If any of these errors appear, please check your size, format and resolution and make changes as necessary before re-uploading.
If you are taken to the My Ad Deliveries page, your ad has the right dimensions and format. You can see the status of your ad on the right. Click on the bar to access the Specle Digital Job Page.
Videos will play in the preview box on the Specle Digital job page.
