Summary of the challenge:
The goal is to predict the optimized price when launching marketing campaigns, reducing the optimization time and generate campaign impact and profits from day1.
The profitability and impact of the marketing campaigns depends on how the ads are positioned in the ad platform rankings. There are two main factors: i) landing page quality and ii) maximum price per click.
Today, digital account managers spend a lot of time (up to one month) until they adjust the price of a keyword. Consequently, from one side, the keyword generates relevant amount of traffic and, from the other side, the keyword revenue is higher than the cost. Managers use to increase the CPC on a daily basis to avoid over pricing, which generates impressions with no clicks, so the campaign does no generate conversions.
By the prediction of this optimized price when launching the campaign, JOT will reduce the optimization time and generate campaign impact and profits from day 1.
