What are Ad operations?
Ad Operations Specialist Roles and responsibilities: The advertising operations team inputs, serves, targets, optimizes, manages and reports on the performance and traffic of online ads. Advertising operations don’t leave the fate of a campaign to chance. After a campaign starts, an Ad Ops team closely monitors the ads to make sure they’re doing their job: making money for the website publisher.
A competent ad operations team continuously monitors the ad traffic. It is an ongoing relationship that is modified and adjusted based on data collected by the invisible hands of the advertising operations department, team or company.
