While managing a successful Google Ads campaign, why would you choose automated bidding instead of manual bidding?

  • Because bid automation is a standard capability in the market that allows a lesser degree of precision, based on the conversion opportunity of each auction.

  • Because users’ intent and their likelihood to complete valuable actions for your business hardly vary based on location, time, or device
  • Because cross-referencing data with context to establish intent and set the appropriate bid is a more simple, direct task.

Why does automating your bid vs. using manual bidding contribute to a successful Google Ads campaign?

  • If you don’t bid efficiently, you could miss valuable conversions.
  • The customer journey has become more complex and therefore bids should be based on general user behavior.

  • User intent and likelihood to complete valuable actions for your business don’t vary based on location, time, or device.

  • To prevent campaigns from becoming “Limited by Budget”
