1. Optimizing Profit, Not Just Revenue

Automatic bidding tools provided by ad platforms offer a level of convenience that many businesses appreciate. However, relying solely on bidding based on revenue may not be the most efficient approach. Yes, it can lead to increased revenue, but profitability is a different story altogether.

The Revenue vs. Profit Dilemma: When businesses focus solely on revenue-based bidding, they risk overspending on campaigns that may generate high revenue but come with equally high costs. Adjusting bids based on profitability requires a more nuanced strategy.

When you report revenue to ad platforms, automatic bidding will bid higher for users that are predicted to generate higher results for you in terms of revenue. However, revenue and profit are not always in line. When you start using profit data, automatic bidding will bid higher for users that are predicted to generate higher profit for you.

2. The Need for Precision in Bidding

One challenge businesses face is the potential exposure of sensitive information through client-side tracking tags. Revealing profit or value-based metrics via the browser could inadvertently share crucial business data with competitors or prying eyes. It's a risk that savvy businesses are reluctant to take.
