Nevermind. They are not accepting spreasheets from ANYONE not spending at least $1k per month, PER account.

This cost to set up a Overture account may just price Overture out of the range for new client accounts. They will NOT want to pay our going rate for data entry at Overture. Sure, amortized over the course of a campaign it works out, but the upfront data entry bill may just push Overture out of the "doable/sellable" column.

I.E Researching terms and bids, populating and submitting a spreadsheet took a far less time than - Researching terms and bids, and entering them 40 or 50 via the DTC - with a 20 minute "window" (and fast keywork)

I think we are going to wear out our cut and paste function.
I am not happy.
