What is data feed watch, and why do we use it?

If you are an eCommerce company, Data Feed Watch (DFW) is the platform we use in order to optimize your product feed. It allows you to customize the product feed attributes before they are sent to Google Merchant Center (which is the tool that then uploads your product listings into Google Shopping, Google Product Ads, and Google Commerce Search). DFW is part of the reason why shopping ads are so successful.

When is the best time to run Facebook Ads?

Wait a month or two (because you need to have good enough performance from one platform before testing new networks because it’s always an investment to start a new network and therefore a new learning period) and then launch a Facebook remarketing campaign.

What are some high-level recommended campaign bidding strategies?

Start new campaigns with a manual bidding strategy until the algorithm has enough data to switch to automatic. Then, see how high you can push the algorithm to automatically raise its goal (i.e. target CPC of $X could be the goal). You must have conversion tracking set up correctly before running any campaigns or else you will be feeding the wrong data into the machine learning algorithms, which will obstruct its ability to get results. You can check this by going to the Conversions report and checking the “Include in Conversions?” column and making sure that only the appropriate conversion actions are included.
