What are Goals in TapClicks?
Goals is a feature in TapClicks that helps you monitor and stay informed about the progress of your campaigns, allowing you to adjust your strategy if goals are not being met.
While each ad has specific objectives, all ads generally have one of three goals: 1) to inform, 2) to persuade or 3) to remind customers about your brand or product. During the campaign, it is essential to set goals and monitor them continuously.
There are multiple metrics available while creating a new goal. You can select metrics per your campaign needs. Some examples of common metrics include the following:
- Page Likes
- Page Views
Set short term, manageable goals, be flexible and make changes as needed.
An Example of Using Goals in TapClicks
Every metric has a specific purpose. Here is an example. If you are running a campaign where your goal is to get 10k impressions in six months, rather than waiting until the end to assess your results, it's better to create an interim goal by using the impressions metric. Set the benchmark at 900 impressions for the first 15 days. After completing that period, take a look at the results. If your goal results meet the target, you don't have to do anything. If not, revisit your campaign details and change the campaign strategy.
