After activating Blaze for the first time, you’ll be prompted to connect to If you don’t have a account, you’ll be able to create one.

Note: If you already have the Jetpack plugin installed and connected to, you won’t need to connect again. It will use the existing connection on your site.

Click the Connect now button. This will take you to the connection page, and if you are already logged in to your account, you will be asked to approve the connection by clicking the Approve button.

Promoting your products

Once your account is connected, you will be able to see a list of your products on the Blaze dashboard under Marketing > Blaze for WooCommerce > Ready to promote > Products. If you don’t have any products yet, you can create one by following the WooCommerce guide for adding and managing products.

The Promote with Blaze option is also automatically integrated into your product listings page.

You can also promote posts or pages. It can be a good idea to promote posts or pages that frequently lead to purchases or newsletter subscriptions on your site. Navigate to Posts & Pages tab: Marketing > Blaze for WooCommerce > Ready to promote > Posts & Pages.

Note: If you’ve just connected your account, it might take a while for your products, posts and pages to synchronize and be available to Blaze. Give some time for the sync to complete, and they will be available to promote.

Creating your campaign

Click the Promote button next to the product of your choice, and you will be taken to the Blaze Campaign Wizard. A default campaign will be provided, incorporating best practices and AI-generated ad creative based on the content of your product. You can either accept this suggested campaign or click “Make changes” to customize it further. 

Making changes to your campaign

You can configure the appearance, audience, budget and duration, and other advanced settings, as well as the payment for your campaign. Each section is explained in more detail below.


This section allows you to set your campaign’s objective. You can choose one of the following:

  • Traffic
  • Sales
  • Awareness
  • Engagement

This section asks for information to determine how your Blaze campaign will look when promoted across the network. If you’d like help, you can generate  suggested content by clicking the arrows next to “Suggested by AI.”

  • Ad creative: Upload an image for your ad. This will be the product’s featured image by default, but you can upload a different one. You can also crop the image from here.
  • Site title: This appears just below your image and as non-bolded text. Use this to briefly describe what the ad is about – perhaps something catchy or unique about your product. This will be truncated if it exceeds 32 characters. 
  • Snippet: A short text description of your product that appears underneath your image and title. You can write a maximum of 140 characters here. We recommend using this text to support the title, catch viewers’ attention, and give them more context about what they will see when they arrive at your store. 

Choose who will see your ad by adjusting the following:

  • Language: Select the target language(s) spoken by your intended audience. You can select more than one target language here and can choose All languages to target all available languages.
  • Interests: Choose the interests of your intended audience using the dropdown. Select All topics to show your products to all potential viewers regardless of their interests. Choosing relevant interests is highly recommended to improve the effectiveness of your ad. 
  • Location: Select geographic areas where your products will be promoted. You can narrow down your audience or leave the field empty to show your products to all potential viewers regardless of their location.

Control how much you would like to spend on your Blaze campaign:

  • Total: Select your total spend for the campaign using the slider. You can choose a minimum of $5 per day and up to a maximum of $50 per day. Your budget will be shown in USD. No other currencies are supported at this time.
  • Start date: Choose when you would like your campaign to start running.
  • Duration (days): Select the number of days you would like your campaign to run, between 1 and 28 days.

You can also choose the “Run until I stop it” option to continue running a campaign until you manually stop it.

Advanced Settings

Select your target devices, set your destination URL, and add any custom parameters for tracking:

  • Targeted Devices: Choose whether you would like your advertisement to be seen by viewers on desktop computers or mobile devices. Select All devices to show your product to all potential viewers regardless of the device they’re using.
  • Destination URL: This is where visitors will be directed when they click on the campaign. This can be the product page itself or your site’s homepage.
  • URL parameters: Add custom parameters to your destination URL for more advanced tracking and analytics purposes. This is especially useful when used in conjunction with platforms like Google Analytics and in-house analytics tools.

In the Payment section, fill out your payment details and then click the Submit campaign button. You won’t be charged until after the ad has been approved and starts running on our network.

Payments will be made automatically on a weekly basis based on delivered impressions over that period (i.e. how many times your ad was served). You will be charged weekly for ads served across all of your promotions.

When a payment is made, you will receive an email receipt to the email address associated with your account.

You can cancel your campaigns at any time. You will only be charged for the portion of your ad campaign that was served up until that point. It is not possible to refund any charges for ads served, so it is recommended to double-check your weekly budget before submitting your campaign. 

Campaign Approval

Once you submit your campaign, it will be sent for review. We review all Blaze campaigns for compliance with our Advertising Policy before they are seen by others.

We moderate posts as quickly as possible. We aim to approve campaigns in 24 hours or less. Approval times can be faster or slower, depending on submission volume. 

If your post has been approved, you will receive an email notification, and your ad will start receiving impressions. Your post will be rejected if it does not conform to our Advertising Policy. You will not be charged if your post is rejected.
