How to Schedule Lucit in the Blip Player
Each Blip Sign will have a separate Blip Ad assigned to it for each advertiser, this is because our feed requires the Sign Id (or name) in order for Lucit to produce the correctly sized and formatted creative.
When creating ads for an advertiser, it is important to know ahead of time which signs you will be targeting.
The Lucit feed is setup as a Dynamic Ad with a placeholder background image on which our images are presented.
The Analytics are generated based on a special login that is created – See This Guide to creating your Blip Analytics login
