Set up a campaign #

Step 1. Fill in the main campaign parameters #

  1. Go to the Promotion section and select Display advertising.

  2. Click Create campaign and select Banners.

  3. Specify:

    • Advertising campaign name.

    • Start and end dates. To show ads over indefinite time, don’t fill in the campaign end date.

    • Budget limitations:

      • Budget per day: the daily amount that you don’t want to exceed. The minimum budget is 1000 rubles per day. If you spend less than that in a day, you will only be charged for the amount spent.

      • Total budget: the total amount that you’re willing to spend on the campaign. When the total budget runs out, the advertisement display will stop.

    You can change the budget later on the campaign page.

    How to change the budget

    Daily budget is spent uniformly throughout a day. If the amount is insufficient for continuous display throughout a day, we’ll automatically stop the campaign and then launch it again. This is required to evenly distribute the budget throughout the day.

    There is a minor delay between the banner display time and the time when the money is withdrawn. Therefore, there may be some budget overrun, up to 10% of your daily budget. We recommend setting the budget slightly lower than you are ready to spend per day.
  4. Click Create campaign.

Step 2. Upload and submit the banner for moderation #

  1. On the Banner page, click Add a banner.

  2. Select a platform: website or mobile site and app.

  3. If you want the banner to be shown to a certain audience, set up targeting:

If you select a customer segment and targeting by region, the audience will be selected at the intersection of these target groups.

  1. Set a rate for 1000 impressions. The higher the rate, the more likely the banner will be displayed. We recommend specifying a rate based on your advertising budget. The amounts are indicated with VAT.

    You can change the rate at any time. In 10 minutes after the change, the banner will start participating in the auction with the new rates.

    In the same block you can see the competitive rate. This is the recommended rate per 1000 banner impressions, which
    depends on the platform and targeting parameters. It is calculated as the median rate of all active banners: half of the banners have a rate below this value, the other half—above.

    If the set rate is less than the competitive one, you’ll see a notification.

  2. Upload the banner and specify the landing page. This page will open when you click the banner.

    How to create a banner

By impressions and clicks #

In the report, you can view the data in the context of the impression criteria: categories or search phrases. Statistics take into account data on:

  • impressions;
  • clicks;
  • CTR;
  • average rates;
  • advertising expenses.

Explanations for some fields:

  • Page type: display location.
  • Platform: website or mobile app.
  • Display condition: the category in which the banner was displayed if it was placed on the PDP.
  • CTR (click-through rate): the ratio of the number of clicks to the number of impressions.
  • Reach: the number of unique users who have seen the campaign.

We recommend paying attention to the number of impressions and CTR. High CTR shows that your banner is a subject of customers' interest and is often clicked on. If such a banner has few impressions, it gets into the promotion blocks not often enough. To fix it, we recommend raising the rate: the banner will be able to win more auctions and will be shown to users more often. If there are a lot of impressions, but the CTR is low, we recommend lowering the rate.

By orders #

In this report, you can find out how many orders you received within 30 days after clicking the advertisement, clicking on the product, and clicking on one of the products on the landing page. The report shows:

  • number of product orders;
  • number of model orders: for products merged into one PDP by color, size, volume, or other characteristics;
  • revenue from selling the products;
  • revenue from orders of a specific model.
