So you’ve just hired your new Ad Operations employee or team and you want to make sure you’re getting the best performance out of them, while also getting the most “bang for your buck”

It’s important to have a clear and straightforward way to assess the performance of your ad operations team. Here’s a simplified checklist that you can use to review their performance, even if you’re not very tech-savvy:

1) Campaign Setup and Launch:

  • Are campaigns set up on time?
  • Are the targeting parameters aligned with client objectives?
  • Is there a clear process for campaign approval?

2) Monitoring and Optimization:

  • Is there regular monitoring of campaign performance?
  • Are there clear KPIs being tracked (e.g., CTR, Conversion Rate)?
  • How frequently are optimizations made based on performance data?

3) Reporting and Communication:

  • Are reports delivered on schedule?
  • Do reports clearly communicate campaign performance?
  • Is there proactive communication about both successes and challenges?

4) Budget Management:

  • Is ad spend tracking close to budget projections?
  • Are there measures in place to prevent overspending?
  • How effectively is the budget allocated across campaigns?

5) Compliance and Quality Control:

  • Are ads compliant with platform guidelines and regulations?
  • Is there a quality control process to ensure ads meet brand standards?
  • Are any issues addressed promptly and effectively?

6) Client Satisfaction:

  • Are clients satisfied with the performance and service?

  • Are there regular check-ins with clients to discuss campaign progress?

7) Innovation and Growth:
