Multiple Creative Delivery for Reach & Frequency Campaigns

Before getting started: Reach & Frequency is currently only available to qualified customers. Please contact your sales representative for more information.


Reach & Frequency (R&F) is a campaign buying type on TikTok Ads Manager that lets you control the audiences you reach, and the number of times they are exposed to your ad messaging before delivery. One way to control how you share your messaging with your audience from a R&F campaign is through Multiple Creative Delivery.



What is Multiple Creative Delivery

With Multiple Creative Delivery, you can tell your brand or product story by showing people a series of ads in the order that you define. You can use Multiple Creative Delivery to build interest, reinforce a message, or create a unifying theme. This article explains how Multiple Creative Delivery works, access and setup, and a comparison of all ad sequence & schedule strategies.

Delivery Strategy

How it works

Best for

Standard

•​Each creative is delivered randomly, but with similar distribution of impressions between each creative.

•​When your messaging has multiple components such as highlighting product features, or different influencers within a single ad

Sequenced

•​Creatives are delivered in a set order.

•​When you tell a sequential brand story with a series of creatives.

Scheduled

•​Creatives are delivered during a set schedule.

•​When you want to pair creatives with a specific launch date or timing.


How Multiple Creative Delivery works

Multiple Creative Delivery lets you define the order that people will see your ads within an ad group. You can upload up to 20 creatives under one ad, and rotate the content to see what resonates best with demographics.

After setting the ad group level’s budget and schedule, you can choose your preferred delivery method. Standard is selected by default.

  • ​Standard delivery: Your ads will be distributed evenly and are expected to achieve a similar amount of traffic.

  • ​Scheduled delivery: Set specific time periods to deliver each ad.

  • ​Sequenced delivery: Set a specific sequence to deliver your ads.


Note: If any of your ads are disapproved, we'll automatically adjust your sequencing and schedule accordingly.
