Announced at unBoxed 2023

What launched?

Amazon DSP is launching goal-based bidding, which helps advertisers to specify a performance target for their campaigns and allow Amazon DSP to automatically optimize their bids in real-time in order to maximize delivery at their performance target. With this release, advertisers can automatically optimize to both delivery and performance goals.

Campaign Reporting: Goal Metric Status

Why is it important?

Goal-based bidding can be used to maximize delivery at a performance threshold that advertisers define. You can now specify a KPI target when creating a campaign—for instance, you can set a target CPA of $10 and choose “Prioritize KPI target” as the optimization strategy. This allows you to maximize your campaign goal, such as conversions, while ensuring that the campaign remains at or near your specified target CPA.
