Efficient traffic acquisition through bid optimization

Every brand use ads in some form to do things like increase traffic to their site, convert new customers and re-engage customers who haven’t shopped in a while. And if you are familiar with bid optimization, you know it’s a great metric to reach your goals! In this blog post, we’ll go through how you can work better with bid optimization though Facebook Customer Audiences and Google Customer Match.

What is bid optimization?

A lot of paid digital marketing lets advertisers compete about visibility to the desired audience through an auction model. That means that you nominate a bid that often matches the maximum amount of money you are willing to spend for the advertising. Then it’s up to the advertising platform to use the bid amount to determine which ads are displayed and in what order.

It is a fine line between making sure the bid price ensures high exposure and generates relevant clicks – and not allowing the cost to get too high so the clicks will be too expensive for your budget.
