Firstly, you need to submit a new website. A website is a set of zones that display ads. Therefore, each website should have at least one zone.
Secondly, add zones and place the ad code on your website. A zone is a defined area on a website where ads will be displayed. An ad code is a small piece of code that is responsible for ads display.
Then you need to create a new campaign. An ad campaign is a set of related ads (advertisements). Each campaign should have at least one ad. Otherwise, there will be nothing to display.
Finally, create a new ad. An ad (advertisement) consists of visual/textual/audio content with associated properties. Please note that your ads and zones need a corresponding ad format to run ads properly.
Just follow these simple steps, and you will be ready for more advanced tweaking of your ad campaigns.
