Optimize your spend

Snapchat’s goal-based bidding and automated bidding strategies help you optimize your campaigns towards conversions, target CPA goals, or target ROAS goals.

Monitor performance

View performance metrics, campaign results, download reports, and update your bidding strategy, all within Snapchat’s self-service Ads Manager platform.
Goal-based bidding
Optimize towards a specific action you want a Snapchatter to take, such as installing your app, watching a video, or completing a purchase. In order to bid on lower funnel goals, like Purchase or Sign-Up, you will need to unlock them by sending those events via the Snap Pixel. Once you reach 50 attributed purchases or sign-ups within a 7 day period you will unlock these goals.
Automated bidding strategies
You have a few options when it comes to bidding in Ads Manager. With Auto-Bidding, Snapchat will set your bid amount to automatically optimize towards conversions. With Target Cost, Snapchat will optimize towards your target CPA goals. With Minimum ROAS, Snapchat will optimize towards your target ROAS goals.

The Snap Auction

The Snap Auction functions to serve the right ad to the right viewer and determines how much to charge the winning ad.
While you are creating your ads within Ads Manager, you set parameters that the Snap Auction will use to deliver your ad to Snapchatters, such as budget and targeting. How much you spend on your campaign will depend on a few different factors, such as your bid, bid goal, performance, and budget. Regardless of your bid goal, you will be charged per impression.
