Self learning AI automatically makes the best decisions to grow your business. The next generation of paid advertising is here

The advertising landscape is changing for the better. As the rules of the game slowly but surely change, no one want to be left behind. Then I think It's time to meet your new ally: the Ad Health Checkup. In this article, I will talk about what ad health checkup is, its benefits, and why it is important for your e-commerce business.

What is Ad Health Checkup?

Think of ignoring a nagging cough or backache. Just like neglecting these symptoms can lead to bigger health problems down the line, ignoring potential issues with your advertising can significantly impact your campaign's effectiveness.

An ad health checkup is an early warning system, identifying problems before they escalate and costing you money.

How does Ad Health Checkup Work?

Just like scheduling regular physical checkups to ensure our bodies are functioning optimally, your online advertising campaigns also need routine maintenance. An ad health checkup, similar to a doctor's visit, analyzes your ad performance and identifies areas for improvement. This helps ensure your ads are reaching the right audience and delivering the best possible results for your business.

Imagine your doctor using the latest technology and diagnostics to understand your health. An ad health checkup works in a similar way, leveraging data and analytics to provide a thorough assessment of your advertising campaigns. This data-driven approach helps you "diagnose" any issues and optimize your ads for better targeting and improved performance.

Enhencer offers a similar benefit with our free ad health checkup. This checkup provides valuable insights into your advertising strategy without any cost or obligation.

Common Problems Identified in an Ad Health Checkup

These issues are typically very similar and common. Listed below are common problems in e-commerce advertising campaigns. 

1. Off-Target Audience.  Targeting misalignment happens when your ads reach people who don't fit your ideal customer profile. It’s like  trying to sell winter coats at a beach party. This could be due to wrong demographics, interests, or online behavior. As a result you waste your ad spend. 

2. Low Click-Through Rates (CTR).  Not all clicks are good clicks. A low CTR means your ads aren't compelling enough to get people clicking. They might not be grabbing attention or sparking interest.

3. High Cost-per-Acquisition (CPA). Paying a lot for each customer? A high CPA suggests your ads aren't driving conversions efficiently. It means your recent ads might not be convincing viewers to take action.

4. Budget Drain. Imagine a leaky faucet – your budget could be draining faster than expected! Inefficient allocation happens when you spend too much on platforms or ad groups that don't deliver results.

5. Uneven Budget Distribution. Spreading your budget unevenly across platforms can lead to budget leaks. You might be neglecting high-performing platforms for less effective ones.

6. Targeting the Wrong Audience Segments. Focusing on the wrong demographics or interests can be a budget drain. Your ads need to reach the right people at the right time.

7. Ineffective Bidding Strategies.  Choosing the wrong bidding strategies can cost you money. You might be underpaying for valuable placements or overpaying for ineffective ones.

8. Irrelevant Copy. Irrelevant ad copy won't resonate with your audience and can lead to missed opportunities. Because words matter. 

9. Creative Stagnation. Even the best creatives can lose their effectiveness over time. Regularly refreshing your ad creatives keeps your campaigns fresh and engaging for your audience.
