Is anyone here running In-Stream Reserve video ads on Facebook? In-stream *auction* has been a top performer for us, and our Meta reps are pushing the client to commit $ to ISR bc “it’s premium inventory with locked in CPMs!” But it’s also managed service (ugh), which means an IO and no ability for our team to hands-on manage the campaign (what if something goes wrong? Our reps are hard enough to get a hold of in the best of times). Would love to hear from anyone who has tested it!
