Using Enhanced Bid Price Well to Maximise Sales

Increase your sales effortlessly using Enhanced Bid Price


Why should I use Enhanced Bid Price? 

It can be time-consuming to manually adjust the bid prices of each individual keyword for your Product Search Ads, or for each display location for Discovery Ads . Or you may simply feel like you don’t have enough data to know what is the “best” bid price.


Enhanced Bid Price helps make your life easier by automatically optimising the bid prices of your manually selected keywords for Product Search Ads or Discovery Adsto generate more sales conversions, without significantly increasing your ads expense.  


How does Enhanced Bid Price work? 

Enhanced Bid Price uses an algorithm to predict whether each ad click is likely to lead to a sales conversion based on a variety of factors, such as historical data related to your advertised product, your shop and your customers’ shopping habits. Your ads’ bid prices are then automatically adjusted to increase your sales.


When ad clicks are more likely to generate sales, Enhanced Bid Price will increase bid prices by up to 50%. When ad clicks are less likely to generate sales, Enhanced Bid Price will decrease bid prices by up to 50%. 

  1. For example, if your bid price is ₱0.30, our system will automatically increase your bid to no more than ₱0.45 when ad clicks are more likely to generate sales
  2. Our system will also automatically decrease your bid to no lower than ₱0.15 when ad clicks are less likely to generate sales


How would Enhanced Bid Price impact my ads performance?

Enhanced Bid Price will help to increase sales from your Product Search Ads with manually selected keywords or Discovery Ads with Auto Optimisation turned off, without significantly increasing your ads spend. In other words, your ads' Return on Investment (ROI) will improve over time.
