Bid types Let’s talk video bid types With the Pre-roll Views objective, you’re paying for reach via new views on your videos. But all view counts are not created equal — so we offer a variety of video bid types to ensure that you’re driving the views you want. Twitter offers three unique video bid Here’s how it types, with their own distinct works. tradeoffs and benefits: Twitter’s cost-per-action pricing means you only pay These three bid types differ in the duration the video is watched for the results you’re looking (often referred to as ‘s' or ‘sec’) and what percent of the video needs to drive. to be in view onscreen (often referred to a flat %) for the view to be counted.

Bid types Next let’s talk billing bid types There is no minimum budget for Twitter Ads, but setting competitive bids and budgets for your campaigns allows them to win auctions and serve. Use these tips to help set a bid and budget that maximizes your campaign results within your price range: Utilize auto bid. Your bid is one of the factors that determines how frequently your ad is displayed. We provide a recommended bid (informed by past successful campaigns) which indicates the amount that will best help you reach your goal. For new advertisers, we recommend automatic bidding because it’s the most flexible and cost effective, and updates in real-time are based on auction conditions to fit your campaign budget. Once your bid is set, you will never be charged more. Set your bid based on the value you place on each extra video view Keep When entering your bid, consider the value of each view your video will in mind receive and let that dictate what you’d like to pay. With a small budget, it’s easy to set a low bid, but remember, even if you set a high maximum A higher bid means you bid, you’ll only pay slightly more than the second highest bidder. are more likely to win the Match bid to targeting size.

A bid For example, advertisers targeting specific geographic regions may below competitors’ bids need to bid more to win the same number of auctions as advertisers may not serve. targeting less specific audiences, as there are less people in that audience. In addition to controlling the amount you pay per view, you can also control the daily budget you’re willing to spend on each campaign. Once your daily budget has been reached, the campaign will temporarily stop serving until the following day (or until the daily budget is increased). You can also set a total budget for the campaign.Find more information on bids and budgeting in our bidding and auctions FAQ. 15

Audience targeting Other Targeting Tips to optimize your campaign Target with focus Creating campaigns with focused, relevant targeting means you have a higher chance to serve to audiences who are interested and likely to view with your ad. Too large an audience will decrease the chances of the ad being relevant to users. That being said, targeting too small an audience will limit the users who are eligible to see your ad. Use the campaign forecaster tool within the campaign setup form to see if your targeting parameters are focused but not limited. Increase your video reach Test running your pre-roll across a wide range of content categories in order to increase your reach and only stick to a few key targeting criteria to make sure you don’t limit your reach. Vary targeting between campaigns If you have more than one campaign targeting very similar audiences, your performance can suffer since your campaigns are essentially competing between each other for serve. Break out mobile vs. desktop targeting Mobile is a fundamentally different medium than desktop, characterized by frequent quick sessions and spur-of-the-moment spikes in purchase intent. Because of this, we recommend running separate campaigns each targeting mobile and desktop separately. This lets you test and learn the nuanced behaviors for each. Play around! One of the most important things you can do to drive continued campaign performance is to test what works for you and your campaigns. While it makes sense to run always-on campaigns, you’ll want to continually refresh and optimize your campaigns, given Twitter’s ever-changing, real-time nature. Remove low performing keywords, interests, and handles, and replace them with ones that are similar to the high performing ones. 19
