  40. 40. Targeting o If your campaign is under pacing you should review your targeting o Is the audience size large enough to fulfill the campaign budget? o Avoid hyper targeting as this can exclude valuable audiences with interest in your content o Audiences smaller than 300,000 members are considered niche and can prevent your daily budget being reached o Best practice is to set a broad audience of 300,000+, then optimize based on performance 1
  41. 41. Targeting o After your campaign has run for about a week, use the Click demographics to understand which audiences are most engaged o You can use the Click demographics data to optimize your campaign targeting 1
  42. 42. Bids o If your campaign is under pacing you should review your bid to confirm if it has been set high enough to be competitive in the auction. o Best practice is to set your bid rate $1 above the top bid range. Bid prices can fluctuate several times throughout the day so this will enable you to consistently stay competitive. o Remember the bid you enter is not always the price you pay – 2nd price auction o If you find your average price is too high you can always go back & reduce the bid o In addition to bidding, your Relevancy Score is important to help you win the auction - which is based on engagements on the platform. See here for more details on the Auction and Relevancy Score. CPC CPM 2 **Automated bidding is now rolling out to advertisers. This allows for automated and dynamic bid changes without having to make manual adjustments.**
