Auction Time bidding has a variety of benefits over conventional bid adjustment strategies. It uses real-time data to automatically capitalize on user-specific signals. As a result, it responds more quickly to changing consumer trends than conventional bidding strategies. However, the system requires a few weeks of calibration to become effective. During this time, bid adjustments should be minimal.
In addition, auction time bidding is slow to get started, so it can take up to 12 days to start working. In addition, conversion delays can exacerbate the start time. Once it starts working, volume can be pushed through the campaign. This can result in a spike in CPA and ROI, which leads advertisers to panic. After seven days, however, this spike in bids starts to diminish.
Before placing a bid, all bidders must register for a Bidder’s number. To register, the Bidder must provide certain information, such as valid ID. In doing so, the Bidder demonstrates that they are of legal age and sound mind. By registering, the Bidder also agrees to the Terms and Conditions, and takes full responsibility for the Bidder number.
