How much data does ASK BOSCO® need?Abby Cooper2023-11-15T15:43:40+00:00
Both the ASK BOSCO® Index and reporting capabilities can be utilised with any level of data. However, to get the best results from forecasting, we recommend at least eight weeks of consistent spend within two or more paid-for marketing channels.
How is ASK BOSCO® different to Search Ads 360?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T15:30:58+00:00
Google Search Ads 360 on its own will help you manage your search campaigns (e.g. Google Ads and Bing Ads) and ideally, you would need Campaign Manager 360 to manage all these paid channels.
ASK BOSCO® collates all of your data into one platform, and from this you can utilise the forecasting and budget optimisation features for all channels. SA360 and CM360 is on our roadmap to integrate into ASK BOSCO® so that we can report, forecast and optimise based on the conversion data that is being tracked in this tool.
How does the technology know when to suggest altering spend?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T15:56:49+00:00
The team at ASK BOSCO® have developed an extensive machine learning algorithm which takes data from several trusted data partners, along with 24 months’ worth of your own data and creates a portfolio of keywords which then provide recommendations on all channels.
ASK BOSCO® identifies wasted ad spend and optimises the channel splits at a user defined spend to generate improved return. This forecasting includes increasing conversions, revenue and overall top level opportunities from your digital marketing mix.
How can I add my own competitors into ASK BOSCO®?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T14:38:58+00:00
In the settings page, at the top right of the ASK BOSCO® navigation there is a section called Competitors. Here you can see your current competitors and their relative competitor importance, and add and remove competitors.
How can ASK BOSCO® help with attribution?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T15:32:31+00:00
Currently, we are able to create a custom attribution model based on Google Ads 360 data, or import an attribution model from another data source. Once ASK BOSCO® starts to use data from a custom attribution model, it will help improve how budgets would be split, as this would be a more complete cross channel view.
How are ASK BOSCO® recommendations different to platform smart bidding strategies?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T14:55:02+00:00
ASK BOSCO® is an agnostic tool which reviews how you should spend your overall marketing budget across multiple channels. This is different to smart bidding, as this is something that only occurs through one specific ad platform to maximise that particular channels performance. When using ASK BOSCO®, we would recommend using our recommendations alongside the individual smart bidding within an ad platform to achieve the best results.
Does ASK BOSCO® work for international markets?Abby Cooper2023-11-02T15:42:58+00:00
ASK BOSCO® is available across all international markets, you can utilise the reporting dashboards, forecasting and optimisation, as long as you meet the data thresholds. However, the ASK BOSCO® index works exclusively for the US and UK market for the competitor benchmarking.
Do I have to give you my company data?Abby Cooper2023-10-31T15:46:45+00:00
ASK BOSCO® only requires a few details from you in order to get started. We only need your first name, work email and domain in terms of company data but if you choose to connect your actual data, this is when you will be asked for further details, which will enable you to get the best out of this service.
