Simple Mock Tips
Below are the 2 most common ways our users are utilizing Simple Mock.
Post-Sale – Once a campaign is live (congratulations!) you need to show the client where it is on certain websites. Select websites you know you are running on and mock up the creatives via tag submission or creative submission. No more waiting for a website to send you an actual live screenshot or having to use Photoshop again!
Pre-Sale – Want to show what a client’s logo or brand would look like on your site or a site you are going to run on?! Simple Mock makes this easy to submit customizable RFP submissions to each client. Simply upload the brand’s logo you are pitching and it’s done! No more generic and/or other brand’s logos in your RFP deck. *Tip from a user – you can also use YOUR company’s logo to mock what ads would look like on your site or any site.
