How Campaign Health Metrics Can
Advertising metrics provide clear information on the success and failures of an ad campaign. They are a practical tool to track all aspects of your marketing activities as well as how your campaign compares to designated metrics. Take a look at your campaign health metrics to understand your campaign’s performance. These metrics aren’t exactly KPIs (key performance indicators) because they are not tightly connected to your marketing goals. However, they do support the important ad metrics. They can give you insights into how to improve an ad campaign on your level.

Check out this list of valuable metrics to add to your armory if you really want to find the value of your content, the value of your audience, and the success of the advertising you're hosting.


Cost Efficiency Metrics (CPCs, CPMs, CPVs)

Understand what your initial interaction with your audience is costing you. Metrics like cost per click, cost per mille and cost per view are foundational to determining where you need to focus to optimize your campaign while ensuring you have an eye on the changing trends.


Click-Through Rate

To understand how relevant your ads are to your audience, you need to look at your click-through rate. A low click-through rate means your ads have a huge scope of improvement and that you might not be targeting the right audience to meet your marketing goals. To avoid losing your ad spend, quickly identify drops in performance and alter your ads to make them relevant to your target audience.


Conversion Rate

The conversion rate of your ad indicates the relevance of your landing pages and how well they are optimized for conversion. If the conversion rate is low, it means that your site’s content is not resonating with your audience or that the audience you are targeting isn’t right for your product or service. It could also mean that your audience isn’t at the right stage of the funnel to take an action. You can make changes based on how this metric looks.


Impression Share

This metric helps you understand how much you can scale your campaign through aggressive bidding. It can also highlight underperforming keywords and how you can enhance your campaign by adjusting the budget. Adjusting geo-targeting settings and improving ad quality are some of the ways to increase the impression share.


On-Site Engagement

To gauge the interest of the audience in your ad campaign, keep an eye on on-site engagement metrics like bounce rate, average number of pages visited, and average session duration. These are the real measures of the interest your prospects show in your ads.


Quality Score

A quality score helps you identify ways to improve your campaign. This score gives you a comprehensive look at all the individual scores that affect your campaign. The historical data that evaluates the changes in your campaign over time is visible here. You can pinpoint which changes led to a positive impact and which didn’t.


Bottomline

Campaign health metrics are your answer to improving your ad campaigns. Taking note of what is working and what isn’t is the right way to constantly enhance the performanc

Google’s and Facebook’s Grip on Digital Advertising Markets

Article | July 19, 2022

Estimates point out that digital ads now account for 51 percent of the almost $600 billion spent globally on advertising, a percentage that should only rise with time.

Alex Webb: More kids with smartphones spells advertising bonanza

Article | June 20, 2021

The revelation that, by the age of seven, 53% of British kids will own a mobile phone, will come as good news to one group in particular: advertisers. By the time U.K. youngsters are 11, the ownership ratio reaches a whopping 90%, according to a report published last week by the research consultancy Childwise. And as the penetration of smartphone usage rises, it creates more opportunity for advertisers to get in front of young eyeballs. Parents need to get clued up if they want to stop that from happening. For now, advertising targeted at children has been slower to migrate online than in the broader industry. Whereas more than half of the world's $614 billion of ad spending is now online, less than a third of the outlay for ads targeting children is digital, according to a 2019 study by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Zoomd’s Albert AI, Creative Optimization Technology Generates 800% Return on Ad Spend

Zoomd | January 27, 2023

With creative ad optimization subjected to user biases such as preferences for strong headlines, graphics, colors, etc., Albert AI technology, owned by Zoomd, provides genuine creative optimization based on real-time creative performance across goods, advertising, campaigns, and market segments. Even with the recent development of technologies like Chat GPT-4, ad production is likely to be the last aspect of marketing to gain from AI-powered technology. Due to the subjectivity used by individuals while optimizing commercials, the optimization of ad creatives is now well suited for AI technology. An e-commerce business hired Albert AI intending to improve return on ad spend (ROAS) by 500%, a goal Albert's team thought was achievable. Instead, Albert's ROAS increased by 800% a few months after the onboarding process was completed. In subsequent years, the same e-commerce business, now in its fourth year of working with Albert, is still achieving gains in ROAS between 10 and 20%. Albert optimized the ad creative for this e-commerce firm by developing the best-performing advertisements for each target category and ad platform/channel. In addition, its technology makes the most excellent ad possible by picking the finest photos, colors, fonts, and texts to provide the most cost-effective results for the target demographic. Finally, Albert's system was able to decide when to refresh and then modify ads to maximize ROAS. The technology employs AI to generate advertisements that improve campaign performance, including keyword, platform, audience, and device selection and bidding, as well as creative optimization spanning search, display, social, and cross-channel.
