Advertisers: Running an Ad ContestBack to top

What is a contest?A contest is a performance-based split test between 1 – 4 Challenger ads against your best performing ad in a single ad group. Only one test per ad group at a time is allowed but multiple ad groups can be tested simultaneously.How many contests are in a testing round?We will continue to split test and write ads until we beat your current performance. There is no limit (i.e no extra cost) to the number of ads that we will test until we find a winning ad.How do I enable contests for ad groups?New contests can be started from the Contest Activation screen (located in the Contests section once you have logged in). If you have sufficient funds, you can start a new contest and our optimization network will begin to creating submissions for it. You will be billed automatically.Is there a limit to the number of contests I can have at the same time?No, there is no limit to the number of total contests that can be activated simultaneously.How long does it take to run a contest?Usually 14 days, in some cases longer. To ensure that our results are statistically significant, we test all our ads for a minimum of 14 days before a winner can be determined. The duration is a function of the number of clicks and impressions that each ad gets during the contest. The more clicks and impressions, the shorter the contest will run. Also, the performance difference between the Target and Challenger ad also plays a large role in determining the contest length.How do I know when new ads are submitted to my contest?Every time a new ad is submitted we will email you to come back and approve it so we can start running your contests as quickly as possible.How many ads will I get to choose from?Boost Media will provide 1 – 4 ad submissions per contest, depending on the ad group click or conversion volume.

We optimize ads in over 50 languages, however the submission process may be slower for certain languages. Please contact us if you require more information on this.What happens if I don’t like the submitted ads?You have the ability to accept, edit or reject submitted ads at no extra cost.Is there a limit to the number of ads I can reject?No, within reason. We do encourage you not to prejudge submissions; often small changes or rephrasing of your current copy can have significantly better results. In most cases involving expert writers, testing ads is the only way to determine if an ad is better. We encourage to always accept ads that are within the advertising guidelines you provide, or modify your guidelines to include guidance on the issue you are rejecting.What happens if I change my existing ad during the contest?If you make any changes to your ads while a contest is running, the contest will be automatically paused for manual review. Contest breakage fees may apply – our writers’ time is valuable and we want to give them every opportunity to win through contests that come to completion.Why is my contest paused? How do I get it unpaused?Contests are paused when we detect ads that have been modified. Unpausing a contest requires you to review the contest details page for reactivation.What happens if I change my bid, keywords, budget, or targeting during the contest?Your contest will continue to run smoothly – our system is designed to find the best ad copy regardless of any of these factors. Changing your bid or your keywords affects both the Champion and the Challenger ads equally, so the overall contest remains unaffected.How do you choose a winning ad?We use a statistical model that examines the number of impressions and clicks to determine a winner for each ad. We pick the best ad as soon as we reach a confidence level of at least 90% and the test has run for at least 14 days. At the beginning of a contest, our system will automatically delete significantly under-performing submissions within three days to ensure that only the best possible ads are running.Can I pick winning ads based on success metrics other than CTR?Yes. Our system will automatically select the most appropriate success metric for your ad group based on click and conversion volumes. If you have sufficient conversions, we use Conversions per Impression (CPI). Otherwise, we use CTR by default. Success metrics can be selected upon contest start.
