Holiday Search Marketing Tips: See which Kenshoo Search features can help you optimize your campaigns right now for maximum return at the end of the holiday season
Search marketers know that the Q4 holiday shopping season can be as wild as a ride on a rambunctious reindeer. At this time of year there are dramatic and frequent changes—both in search volume and efficiency—and search marketers will need to be nimble to both maintain returns and maximize sales. That’s where a powerful search marketing platform like Kenshoo Search can offer the granular functionality that gives search marketers the automation tools necessary to control campaigns and provide peace of mind during this critical time.
These quick and easy tips will help ensure you get the most out of Kenshoo optimization this holiday season:
Let’s look at three common scenarios you may face during the holiday season, along with our recommended solution.
Scenario 1: It’s Black Friday and you want to change your goals during the day as you’re seeing different performance to what you expected.
Kenshoo Solution: You can edit the pacing and the boost during the day. The change will take effect within an hour.
Scenario 2: You have a strict budget plan for the holiday down to the week and sometimes even the day, and you just have to follow that plan.
Scenario 3: You are running a promotion for two days and plan to spend three times more than you typically do on each of these days.
Kenshoo Solution: Using new intraday bidding causes the default step size to be increased. Plan accordingly and add budgets gradually a few days before and after your special days.
