Introducing Automation Rules

Newton's Automation Rules is designed to empower advertisers to set specific rules that automatically trigger actions based on defined conditions. This feature is a game changer in campaign management, offering a seamless blend of control and automation. It enables advertisers to create rules at the campaign/ad group/keyword level for various campaign metrics,  coming in from ASA and MMP, such as impressions, costs, and conversion rates.

This allows Advertisers to save time significantly by automating routine tasks, allowing them to focus on more strategic aspects of their campaigns. It also ensures that the right actions are taken at the right time, based on the specific criteria set by the advertiser, reducing the risk of human error or bias. With automated rules, managing large-scale campaigns becomes more feasible, as the platform can handle multiple tasks simultaneously without additional resources.

Key Use Cases: Maximizing Returns on Ad Spend

Here are some practical scenarios where Newton Apple Search Ads automation rules can significantly impact advertising efforts:

Budget Optimization: Set rules to increase or decrease daily budgets based on performance metrics. For instance, if the conversion rate for a campaign exceeds a certain threshold, the system can automatically increase the budget to capitalize during the peak demand period.

Based on the real-time performance of selected metrics at the campaign/ad group/keyword level, the system can - 

  • Pause the campaign 
  • Edit bid for low/high performing campaigns
  • Edit daily budget

Pro tip: To ensure that pre-defined rules don't exhaust advertisers' budgets over a limit, we have introduced a cap that allows advertisers to define a threshold for each rule. The automated rules will refrain from exceeding or falling below the set limit. For instance, if the system is instructed to reduce the bid with a cap set at $2, it will continue decreasing the bid until it reaches $2, refraining from surpassing the limit. In cases, where the current bid exceeds or falls below the cap value, the system will abstain from executing any further actions.  

Why automation is necessary for iOS app marketing?

Performance marketers often face the daunting challenge of managing multiple campaigns and platforms. Apple Search Ads is a difficult platform to deal with for the optimization part because of the inadequate data to judge a user’s LTV. Newton's Apple Search Ads automation rules streamline this complex campaign journey, making it less cumbersome to manage.

As with any advertising platform, Apple Search Ads relies heavily on keyword bidding to determine app visibility. However, determining the ideal bid for each keyword is a time-consuming and energy-intensive task that requires constant monitoring. This is where automation comes in, empowering marketers to increase app visibility while effectively controlling the Cost of Customer Acquisition (CAC).

Studies have shown that marketers spend 80% of their time analyzing and interpreting data for their optimization. In platforms like Apple Search Ads, where data can be scarce and not readily available in a user-friendly format without proper MMP integrations, automation becomes invaluable. It efficiently dissects the clutter and delivers actionable insights without the need for extensive time spent on redundant activities. 

Apple Search Ads as a platform offers multiple optimization options. You can target competitor keywords, adjust bids, utilize negative keywords, play around with match types, and explore multiple other options as well. Automation enables you to concentrate on the strategizing part of the campaign rather than the execution of the optimization itself. Once you figure out your feasible optimization strategies you can simply create rules and configure your optimizations. 

Benefits to iOS app marketers
