The challenge 

Group bidding calculates bids using average values, driving average results

The team at Holcros were manually managing their Google Shopping campaigns in-house. Achieving positive results, Holcros felt their performance on Google Shopping was satisfactory. 

Group bidding is widely considered a best practice for marketers manually managing their Google Shopping bids. Realistically, this practice asks marketers to use broad averages to determine a CPC for tens, hundreds, and even thousands of SKUs, risking wasted ad spend and profitability.

After discovering their performance data at a SKU-level, the team knew they could scale their account and achieve greater success through Google Shopping.

However, an inability to dedicate round-the-clock bid management and CPC analysis was preventing Holcros from reaching these new goals.

The solution 

Machine learning, human thinking: a holistic approach to PLAs, text ads and more

Holcros was in need of an automated tool, to reduce time intensive bid changes and avoid overspending on Google Shopping.

Bidnamic’s machine learning technology analyses real-time performance data to determine a new CPC. What’s more, our engines are able to apply this to each individual SKU in your catalogue, so you’re never under- or overbidding on any of your SKUs.

Our granular operation allows our technology to analyse over 100 base variables for each SKU including product margin, average order value, and conversion rate. Bidnamic’s technology goes one step further than ordinary automation, analysing the search terms resulting in conversions and bidding more to appear first on the carousel.

On top of our technology, Bidnamic provides each client with their own Client Success Manager. Each member of the team holds weekly calls with their clients, providing one-to-one performance feedback, expert advice, and step-by-step tutorials to Google Shopping and related ecommerce tools.
