Benefits of using real-time report over traditional reports
Real time reports enable:
- Faster decision making: Monitor campaign performance in real time and make relevant adjustments to enhance performance, for example, boosting campaign CPC or budget based on real-time performance.
- View performance across metrics: Track performance metrics such as CPM, CTR, and conversions; further access an overview report (by hour) or drill-down to campaign specific metrics. (view multiple campaign dimensions such as sites, countries in real-time)
- Optimize campaign spends: Real-time reporting allows you to take actions fast and allocate budgets to campaigns performing better. [view campaign approval sooner to undertake appropriate action; removes time zone discrepancy in viewing results]
- Understand the purpose of the campaign and identify the critical metrics to track, we recommend using one or two key metrics to help with decision making.
- Use real time reports to identify underperforming sites and take corrective action.
- Drill-down real time report to campaign level for bid adjustment and/or for optimal budget pacing and spending throughout the day.
