Selecting a Bid Strategy for Shopify

Your Bid Strategy is a goal for your campaign that AdRoll uses to automatically optimize which impressions to prioritize, and how aggressively we bid. For example, a goal could be to maximize the total number of Conversions, Clicks, or Impressions. Or, you can set a specific target cost-per-acquisition (CPA), cost-per-click (CPC), or cost-per-1,000-impressions (CPM).

Find your Bid Strategy settings within the Campaign Settings section of the campaign launch and edit pages.

  • CPA will maximize conversions
  • CPC will generate traffic to your website
  • CPM will increase your brand awareness

Typically, people choose CPA if they want to maximize conversions by having people take direct action on your site. With our Shopify integration, your conversion tracking is already defined. 

A CPC bidding strategy will focus on maximizing clicks on your ads to generate traffic to your website.

A CPM bidding strategy is generally chosen if your goal is to increase your brand awareness by putting your message in front of customers. This strategy is not used to drive more traffic to your website. 

Bid Strategy defaults to maximizing CPC if you do not select one
