At least 300 members must be matched before campaign can begin serving impressions. Once at least 300 members are matched, the campaign will launch automatically if you activated your campaign by clicking “Launch.” Keep in mind broader may be better depending on your site traffic.

This includes: • Uploading lists that are too small (we recommend at least 1,000 companies or 10,000 emails), or • Layering too many targeting criteria in addition to the account list.
