To add new locations and simultaneously associate them with a new campaign:

To connect a location to an existing campaign that targets specific locations only, enter the campaign and select the location to target from the list. Learn how.
Locations tips and guidelines
Your location name should be the most recognizable name of the destination, usually the business name.
- Do not include your city/state/country/branch name unless it's part of the brand name.
- Though 30 characters is the max length, 18 characters is the optimal length to ensure the entire location name is fully displayed in all screen sizes.
- Avoid ALL CAPS, use Sentence Case.
