Kadam Smart Ads campaign
Kadam Smart Ads (KSA) or “smart advertising” is a new Advertising Payment Model. It allows you to purchase high-quality targeted traffic and pay only for conversions.
Smart Ads takes the entire routine of managing and optimizing advertising campaigns off you, assuming all the financial risks and letting you pay only for effective traffic (including sales, registrations and any other targeted actions).
Kadam Smart Ads (KSA) is a hybrid model:
The first stage of the hybrid model, the program either functions as a Cost-per-Mille (CPM) or a Cost-per-Click (CPC) model.
After the first stage is completed, the program can switch to a Cost-per-Action (CPA) model. In the Cost-per-Action (CPA) model, the most profitable sites are determined and payment is made at a preferential rate, reducing the overall cost to the minimum. As soon as the settled by the Advertising Campaign number of conversions is achieved, impressions on that specific site are provided for free, and the advertisers end up only paying for conversions.
Kadam Smart Ads (KSA) model takes a series of automated actions that allow you to:
1. Evaluate the attitude of your target audience towards the advertised product on target platforms;
2. Make an accurate portrait of your consumer;
3. Select or create the most convertible promotional materials;
4. Study materials on the most relevant sites;
5. Determine the desired conversion cost;
6. Run the most effective in terms of cost-income advertising campaign on the Internet;
7. Get a stable customer flow and, as a result, a steady income throughout the entire ad campaign.
