Covid-19 Mode Bids by Badger


Ad Badger knows how important this time of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is to your business.

You are likely experiencing a different ACOS than normal with a different conversion rate than normal.

We created a special Bids by Badger Algorithm specifically for this Coronavirus Crisis. We call it: COVID-19 Mode.

When you turn on Bids by Badger for a campaign, The Badger will ask you if you’d like to use our standard algorithm or our new Crisis Algorithm.

We did a Live Stream about this new algorithm. Check it out below 👇 (We suggest you start at the 3:30 mark)

How Is The Bid Algorithm Different In COVID-19 Response Mode?

We studied and observed data inside campaigns and determined that the best course of action to control ACOS during this turbulent time is to:

  1. Both COVID-19 Mode and Standard Mode: Update bids daily.
  2. Both COVID-19 Mode and Standard Mode: Use a predictive Revenue-Per-Click Model to estimate your target CPC based on how much revenue a single keyword generates.
  3. COVID-19 Mode is Different because it: Studies a shorter time frame, if there is enough data.
  4. COVID-19 Mode is Different because it: Works much faster than standard mode. Meaning, if your conversion rate falls from 8% to 3% overnight, the COVID-19 Mode will respond immediately.
  5. COVID-19 Mode is Different because it: Takes bigger action. This bid algorithm is faster, based on data that is most up to date.

What Mode Should I Choose?

  • If your conversion rate has held steady over the past 90 days, choose standard mode.
  • If your conversion rate, revenue per click, or ACOS has changed dramatically, up or down, within the past few weeks, choose Crisis Mode. We’re using the figure ~20% change.

Should I Convert All My Campaigns To COVID-19 Mode?

If your Revenue Per Click, ACOS, or Conversion Rate has changed by over 20% during Coronavirus, yes, you should convert to COVID-19 Mode.
