Surf on the ad set level is designed to allow users to begin to scale their ABO campaigns. It's not always possible to monitor your account 24 hours a day. Surf was created to allow our users to take their minds off micromanaging their budget.
Users will have the ability to determine a trigger point, which represents good performance. Throughout the day, the tactic will check to see if the trigger criteria has been met. If the trigger has been met at any point during the day, the budget for the ad set will be increased by x amount; which you will also have the ability to adjust.
The user should remember to choose a trigger that accurately represents good
performance to ensure that the tactic only triggers on desirable ad sets.😊
When scaling an ad set based on daily performance, sometimes the performance can be deceiving and some ad sets can have drastically different budgets; so the increase cannot remain static.
To counter this, we have added an option to adjust the amount that the budget will increase according to the budget of the ad-set and past performance.
For example, normally, poor-performing ad sets with a high budget that happen to meet the criteria may want a smaller budget % increase than an ad set that is reliably good with a low budget. Finally, this tactic will work on a daily level, so you will have an option to adjust at what time every day the budget will revert back to normal.
