Impact of AI on eCommerce Paid Advertising
Now that we saw how you can use AI for free, let’s explore the impact of AI on eCommerce in terms of paid advertising. In this part, we’ll talk about how AI algorithms are reshaping and optimizing paid advertising.
So, things have been changing for a while now. The change started at the beginning of 2019, but this is the year when Facebook, Google, and TikTok are leaning into AI strategies and AI targeting.
Facebook’s Smart Bidding Strategies
Facebook has its own Smart Bidding Strategies. But, a lot of eCommerce businesses are not using it. So, what you want to do is use the power of AI to discover a high-converting audience. The right strategy here is don’t overthinking. Don’t do a lot of hyper-optimization and hyper-targeting. Currently, Facebook is really good at finding customers for you based on data that you’re sharing via the Facebook pixel. With the Facebook pixel going through your site and your product descriptions, Facebook knows your target audience.
However, we did an A/B test focused on target optimization, and the results were remarkable. By giving Facebook the flexibility to discover and target the most promising potential customers for your eCommerce business, we witnessed a staggering 49% increase in ROAS.
When it comes to optimizing ad placement, our recommendation is to go with automatic ad placements. Attempting to predict where your customers will make their purchases can be challenging. By providing Facebook with more options for your ad placement, you allow the platform to optimize effectively.
For example, let’s say you’re reviewing your metrics and notice that the majority of your purchases occur on Instagram. It might be tempting just to optimize for Instagram. However, with this approach your CPM would be higher and CR lower.
The reasoning behind this is that by limiting your optimization to just one platform, you restrict Facebook’s ability to fully optimize your ads. When you provide Facebook with more options for ad placement, it has the opportunity to leverage its AI capabilities and make data-driven decisions. For example, Facebook may first show ads on its own platform, knowing that customers are more likely to become familiar with your brand. Later, when those same customers encounter your ad on Instagram, they are more likely to click and convert.
Performance Max Campaign on Google
Google has been pushing Performance Max Campaigns for the last couple of months. In the graph below you can see the usage of Performance Max campaigns over time. In November 2021 almost no one was using the Performance Max, while in April of 2023, almost 35% are Performance Max Campaigns. Again, this is one of the big rises of AI. Basically, Performance Max Campaigns are set to replace everything, from Shopping Campaigns to Search Campaigns.
One of the negative things about this is that you don’t have the control you have in the past. But, the results show that Performance Max has better performance than Shopping Campaigns.

Also, the Audit ensures that you are always up to date and in sync with the latest global market data, allowing you to make data-driven decisions with confidence. The best part?
