Tools you need to monitor and work with your remote teams and will help you to manage your day to day ad operation tasks. We all know that online advertisings do not have any boundary. An advertiser can be from America, the publisher can be from Sweden and the campaign strategist who is managing the relationship between seller and buyer can be from Bangladesh.
Ad operations task does not mandatory to have a huge working area and highly decorated office. Only a laptop with the internet connection is good enough to manage all the task. Large companies are operating worldwide under common rules and the same platforms. To maintain a good relationship with clients, those companies separated its operations to multiple locations where they have to work simultaneously. Large companies can have its own management for different offices but it will not be good for the smaller companies.
Smaller ad operational team have to work separately but they have to be communicative with all the team members. Smaller grouping into different places will be best for growing the company faster if they can maintain effective communication.
