The Trouble With Automation and Google Ads

Over the past few years, Google has made a serious push for automation with Smart Shopping campaigns, automated bid strategies, and more. On the surface, these fix-it-and-forget-it solutions seem perfect for advertisers who don’t have a lot of time to devote to campaign management. Are these strategies all they’re cracked up to be – or should advertisers avoid them altogether?

In this whitepaper, Omnitail takes a look at the most common types of campaign automation, lists their pros and cons, and guides you to the solution that’s right for you and your business.

At Omnitail, we do online marketing differently. Most agencies rely on KPIs like ROAS, A/S, and CPO/CPA — but those metrics don’t tell you the whole story. That’s why we manage our accounts to a different metric: operating profit. Our analysts evaluate every account, calibrate bidding strategy to create incremental profit, and maximize it. This flexible approach allows us to adjust to factors such as seasonality and changing business goals, making each dollar count. Success through metrics like profit — not just revenue — equals greater accountability, integrity, and transparency: and that’s what Omnitail is all about. www.omnitail.net
