Enhanced CPC• You have conversion tracking enabled.• Have a consistent (steady stream) of conversions coming in every day (At least 20).• Don’t care what your CPC is.• You’re CPA focused.• You know what your target CPA is and it doesn’t move up and down much.
Incremental Bidding• AdWords: increase OR decrease your max CPC by time of day or day of the week at the campaign level.• Bing: increase in increments of 10% at the ad group or campaign level.
Automated Rules• Use rules for keywords, ads, ad groups or campaigns to raise or lower bids and budgets when certain conditions are met.• You choose the conditions. There are a LOT to choose from.• Choose how often the rules run.• Preview the changes that the rule will make when it runs.
Remarketing on the Content Network• Remarketing is available in the content network only and applied at the ad group level.• The display network setting needs to be for placements, not keywords for maximum reach.• The best set up is a new campaign for placements and an ad group with no active placements in it.• If you want to get the most out of it, have AdWords Conversion Tracking enabled and running, it will import and use some of the same tags.• KNOW what/who you want to remarket to BEFORE you start setting up. Strategy first, then implementation.
APPLYING REMARKETING:• If you generated new tags, those will need to be placed on the page(s) that you want visitors that hit to be re- marketed to before the program can start working. They should be implemented just like AdWords Conversion tracking, insert the code snippet between the body tags. –OR- Use Google Tag Manager.• Bids can be set at different levels for different lists, so be sure to assign the right value to each list by the users you’re targeting. A visitor that abandoned a full cart is more valuable than one that doesn’t add to the cart at all and should be treated as a higher value visitor.
