The Asset Library has been built to function in the same way as the Ad Storage library. The only difference between the two is that the marketing assets saved in the Asset Library are logos and photographs rather than finished marketing collateral and advertisements.

  • Click on Asset Library.

BENEFITS OF ADMATION’S AD STORAGE & ASSET LIBRARY

  • No more lost marketing assets! All approved and finalised campaign assets are automatically saved to the Ad Storage library.
  • All current marketing assets such as logos and branding guidelines can be saved in the Asset Library so that only current assets are used.
  • Have complete control over your marketing assets by nominating only approved stakeholders who can access your final marketing assets.
  • Know for certain that your marketing assets saved in admation’s digital libraries are the correct versions. This circumvents any potential marketing compliance issues by mistakenly running a campaign with a previous, unapproved artwork version or using outdated logos.
  • Locate and share your marketing assets in just seconds instead of having to spend time searching for them in emails or on the server.
