How do I create a successful campaign?

We have to say, your campaigns look marvelous! You’ve uploaded stellar content, set your budget and CPC and are now patiently waiting for the clicks to roll in. To get your campaign performing at its best and reaching the right audiences, we have provided a few pieces of advice below to help you remain competitive in our network. 


Add in content

Pump your campaigns with at least 6-8 headlines to start. While you can upload different pieces of content, it's recommended to use one unique URL per campaign and create variations of it. Focusing your attention on a specific piece of content will allow you to A/B test easily and clearly compare results between campaigns. We've made it a cinch to add in multiple pieces of content with our "Variations" tool.
 

Set a competitive CPC

While our default recommended range for CPC falls between $0.52 and $1.74, you’ll want to set the value according to the device you wish to target. Use the guide below to find a comfortable range for your campaign:

Desktop Campaigns: $0.80-$1.00
Tablet Campaigns: $0.60-$0.80
Mobile Campaigns: $0.40-$0.60 

After the campaign has been live for a few days and is bringing in great results, you can begin to lower the CPC by a few cents at a time to stretch your original daily budget. 
 

Set a healthy campaign duration

Generally, it will take around 3 days or less for our system to amplify your campaign appropriately to your desired audience. Because of this, we recommend setting a campaign duration of at least 5 days, allowing time to optimize the campaign after it has been explored in the network. If you are aiming to receive conversions, we recommend setting the campaign for at least a month or more in order to gain traction.


Narrow in on locations and devices

Our algorithms will do most of the heavy lifting, but you can help out by selecting specific regions and devices for each of your campaigns. This will help concentrate our system’s efforts and focus its attention on the most profitable locations and devices that are best for your content strategy. Keep in mind that the smaller your targeted region is, the higher your CPC will need to be in order to remain competitive in the network. 

Over time, you can optimize the campaign by making small tweaks such as decreasing the CPC, allocating budget to high-performing sections and adding more variations that mirror your top performers. You can find more of our helpful guides for first campaigns here
