Creative template for Google Ad Manager Catfisher

Catfisher - Google Ad Manager creative template

The "Catfisher" template is a custom creative solution for Google Ad Manager that allows you to create persistent, full-width ads that engage and convert your audience. This template is designed to appear at the bottom of the browser window and remains on screen until the user closes it by clicking on the close button.

The "Catfisher" template is designed to improve viewability and ad performance by staying visible while the user scrolls content on the page up or down. This makes it a powerful and effective advertising solution that helps you get the attention of your audience and drive conversions.

The "Catfisher" template includes a number of customizable features to help you create ads that match the look and feel of your brand. You can customize the background color of the template, as well as the gap size and slide-out speed. The design of the closing button is also customizable, giving you control over the appearance of the ad.

In addition to these customization options, the "Catfisher" template allows you to set automatic banner closing after a specified number of seconds, or to show the banner when the user scrolls down to a specific position. These features help to ensure that the "Catfisher" template is a flexible and effective advertising solution that meets the needs of your marketing strategy.

It supports all image formats and hosted HTML creatives, as well as HTML (JavaScript) code or tags.

It is compatible with any version of Google Ad Manager, including the free version, and can be served via out-of-page and size-defined ad units.
