In this Help Center article, we will walk you through the steps to get The Trade Desk connected as a destination in the Flywheel web application. Once connected, you will be able to send your audience segments to The Trade Desk for marketing activation!
When you sign into the GrowthLoop Platform, navigate to the Destinations tab on the left sidebar and click New Destination in the top right corner
When the Select Destination window pops up, type TheTradeDesk (one word) into the Search Bar to find The Trade Desk and click Add The Trade Desk.
Clicking “Add TheTradeDesk” will require you to select/insert the following information:
- Destination Name: This is how the destination will be named and referred to in to the app going forward. It is helpful to make this name “marketer friendly” so everyone on your team knows it’s purpose.
- Sync frequency: This is the default frequency audiences will be synced to a destination. Marketers can always change frequency of an export to The Trade Desk, but this sets the default.
- First Party Data Key and Advertiser ID: For these 2 parameters, you can navigate to your account on TheTradeDesk and select the Ads Account you would like to add as a destination (as per screenshot below). You can always add an additional destination if you’d like to add another LinkedIn Ads account in the future.
Go ahead and select Create, and we’ll validate we have all the proper permissions to load audience data to The Trade Desk.
You should now see The Trade Desk in your list of connected destinations!
