Automated Custom Biddings

Custom bidding allows brands and businesses to assign different values to an event like conversion, purchase, etc. They deliver great results. Yet, some advertisers and marketers cannot use such tools because they lack the knowledge of coding. To mitigate such challenges, Google adds “Floodlight activities” to custom bidding.
