Automated Overspend Alerts. Here’s how a quick tweak to your account can help you avoid a sudden surge in search spending…and blood pressure.
Editor’s note: Introducing our new Tech Tip series! Each week, we’ll feature a favorite tip from one of our Kenshoo experts. These folks know our tools inside and out and they want to share their knowledge with you! This week’s Tech Tip is from Kenshoo Search Client Success Manager, Rachel Gelb, who wants to make sure your morning latte doesn’t come with a double shot of stress.
Picture this: It’s a little before 9am on a Monday. The sun is out, you’re walking to the office full of optimism and energy (some of which comes from that yummy latte you treated yourself to this morning). You are so ready to absolutely crush your search campaigns all week long.
You get to your desk and log into Kenshoo to check on your portfolios. And that’s when you see it.
Your portfolio overspent by more than 30%.
***CUE THE STRESS SWEAT FROM IMAGINING THE CONVERSATION YOU NOW NEED TO HAVE ABOUT HOW THIS WILL IMPACT THIS QUARTER’S BUDGET***
And then your alarm goes off. You bolt upright in bed. It’s 6:30am. It was all just a bad dream! But the potential for this bad dream to become a reality is real. Very real. Unless you make one incredibly easy but hugely helpful precautionary adjustment.
Shake off that dream fog and set up automated overspend alerts. Now!
With automated overspend alerts, you’ll receive an email to let you know if one of your portfolios is on track to exceed your budget by more than 10%. It’s probably one of the easiest things to set up too, which is even better!
How to set up automated overspend alerts:
- Navigate to the Portfolios tab within a specific profile and select one of your portfolios
- From the Actions dropdown menu, select Automate Overspend Alert
- Breathe Easy! From here, Kenshoo will run this action in the background daily. If our systems detect you’re likely to exceed your budget by more than 10%, we’ll send you and your Client Success Team an email to let you know.
So say goodbye to stress dreams and say hello to mellow mornings with yummy lattes. You’ve got it all under control with Kenshoo and automated overspend alerts. To learn more about how Kenshoo can help you take the stress out of managing your search campaigns, contact us for a demo today!
