    What is Fully Automatic Conversion Bid Strategy (CBS)?

Please note that your campaigns’ baseline CPC may increase or decrease.

    How do I control my campaign with Fully Automatic CBS enabled?

    Let us do the heavy-lifting when it comes to optimizing your campaign with Fully Automatic CBS!

    In order to monitor conversions and spend, your control is now in the budget. Monthly and campaign budgets will be limited to standard pacing only.

    Important to Note

    Fully-Automatic is programmed to not raise your CPC more than 150% of the entered CPC in order to maximize your conversions while keeping your ROAS stable. For instance, if the entered CPC= $1.00 USD, the max optimized CPC = $1.50 USD.

    • There are cases where your campaign might hit the CPC threshold and still not be able to utilize the entire budget (usually caused by starting the campaign with too low of a CPC for the required budget). This means that the campaign is not getting all the traffic it can get and as a consequence, not generating all the conversions possible.
    • When this happens, you will notice a yellow box around the “optimized CPC” which indicates that you should raise your entered CPC in order to fulfill your budget, as seen below:

    How do I fix this?

    You can fix this by editing the entered CPC in the campaign settings page, and applying to it the CPC that is currently showing in the “Optimized CPC” as seen below:

    Can I schedule my campaign?

    Using the campaign scheduler in order to run a campaign on specific hours is not recommended, but don’t worry – the algorithm will optimize towards top converting hours and de-prioritize low performing hours!

    Who should use Fully Automatic CBS?
