Using advanced machine learning, Marin optimizes bids based on historical information about the campaign and real-time contextual signals detected during the auction.
Prijsvergelijken.nl chose two automated strategies—Maximize Profitability and Enhanced CPC—to automatically set the right bid to maximize profitability in accordance with their business margins. These strategies also helped get the most conversions at the best cost per click within their daily budget.
