Connected ads enable you to connect your Facebook and Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, Google Ads, Snapchat, Amazon Ads, Microsoft Ads, Linkedin Ads, and X Ads (formerly Twitter) advertising accounts to the AdRoll platform to enable a holistic view of all your marketing efforts within one interface. Once channels are connected to our platform, you can view and measure your campaign performance side-by-side. You can also seamlessly import your ads data from your channels into the AdRoll interface from the past 12 months.

How does it work?

Getting connected to your ad channels is very straightforward, please follow these four steps for easy integration:

Important: AdRoll will only bill for the web spend (campaign launched on AdRoll). All Social and Google Ads spend is billed directly by the respective channels.
    1. Click on the “Integrations” button located in the bottom left corner of your dashboard.
    2. Click the card for the ad account you’d like to connect and click “Connect”.
    3. From there, a popup appears that prompts you to log into your social business manager/ads manager account with your admin credentials.
Note: You can only select an ad account that uses the same currency as your AdRoll account (e.g. if your AdRoll account uses USD, you can only select USD ad accounts). If your FB ad account for example uses EU and AdRoll uses USD, we will not be able to integrate your account due to currency differences.

Once you connect successfully, your campaigns will be automatically added to the AdRoll platform where you will be able to view your connected social campaigns alongside your AdRoll campaigns.

Note: Initially your campaign data will take 24 hours to import but after that, it will be updated on an hourly basis.

Navigating your Connected Social Campaigns

Note: Imported social campaigns will carry one year of historical data into the AdRoll dashboard and we only import campaigns that have spent in the past year. Additionally, all ads and audiences imported with social campaigns will live in our ads library and can be used in any other campaign for that channel.

You will find all your imported campaigns and metrics under the Ads tab of the dashboard.
