What do you need to know to lunch your campaigns with MGID:
Creating campaigns on MGID is also quite easy and straightforward. You just have to fill 1 form with your campaign name, campaign type (here you can also select push notification ads as those were added a year ago) and select a language.
After that, you select the targeting including Geo, Browser, OS, and browser language and your campaign is ready to go:
Currently, the best-performing verticals are healthcare, business opportunities, dating, gambling, desktop gaming, etc. The strongest GEOs are the United States, United Kingdom, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Italy.
If we talk about top GEOs in MGID and best-matching verticals for them, here is a shortlist for each:
US - Investments and bitcoin trading, Consumer products, Health & Beauty, Dating;
Thailand - Weightloss, Binary, ED;
Germany - Online games, Gambling;
Italy - Weight Loss, Dating;
Romania - Weight loss, Health & Beauty offers;
Viet Nam - Weight loss, Money Making, ED.
For more precise data, take a look at monthly Top-risers in July:
For any offer, we recommend 14 days with 10-15 ads to start. The price usually depends on the amount of GEOs, targeting preferences, but $1,500-$2,000 is typically enough to test to collect all the needed data for optimization and understand which approach works best for your offer.
Our final bid is a combination of Teaser CPC + Widget Coefficient. And a lot of clients wonder what is the best way to play with these two variables, and is there any bidding strategy. If you combine these two pieces in the right way - your eCPA will decrease.
The prices depend on the GEO’s and devices you are targeting. In order for you to acquire high-quality inventory, you should be highly competitive on the market. There is no sense in starting a campaign with small bids since you will end up buying only remnant traffic, and not allow yourself a chance to test quality placements truly. Setting optimal bids (or even a bit higher) at the beginning will enable you to get good volumes of traffic right away. Thus you will gain high CTR’s, and you’ll be able to slightly decrease the bids/set coefficients on the go based on the overall performance of specific placements. It’s the most efficient way to squeeze the most from the sources your ROI’s sky rocket from and paying an optimal price to have good profitability on lower-performing once. Selective bidding is a super flexible tool that, in good hands, will help maximize ROI’s from every cent invested.
Later you will be asked to upload your creatives and campaign link and the campaign will go to approval mode. So far, we have seen campaigns on MGID can take a few days to get approved. If you get an account manager it can speed up the process but to be honest campaign approval seems to be somewhat slow in most native ad networks (you can try Voluum’s DSP if you want to reduce that time with some networks).
If you want to have a look at what’s working and which geos are hot, you can check the traffic insights tab that will show you the best performing geos, the lowest competition geos and also if there are any recent hot opportunities.
In the chart above, you can see how some interesting tier 3 geos with a ton of volumes like Viet Nam, Romania, Thailand, and Malaysia are some of the best performing geos in the network.
To optimize your campaign — use a tracker and set up the tracking macros to analyze data.
