6.  Why are the number of out-of-stock products as per the catalogue on Adyogi platform higher than my actual out-of-stock products?

This happens because we exclude the products for which more than 50% of the variants are out-of-stock. This is done to ensure that only the relevant products are shown in the ads. If after landing on the product page, a potential customer dropouts because of lack of available variants, that’s a wasted opportunity for us.

 

7.  How do I use my brand logo in my ads?

To upload your brand image, go to the "My Account" section on the AdYogi Panel. Go to "Default Settings" under this section, under "Campaign and Ad Settings", you will the get option to upload your brand logo. Once updated, you can apply the brand overlay while creating your ads.

9.  Why don't the sales on Facebook and Adyogi match?

Attribution is the process of assigning credit to touchpoints along a consumer's conversion path. Each of the steps leading up to the conversion is called touchpoints, which include any of a consumer's interactions with an ad. By default, Facebook Attribution selects a last-touch model with a 1-day click and 28-day click window. Whereas, Adyogi uses 28-day click and 28-day view. If you feel the discrepancies are too huge, you can change the attribution window on the Adyogi platform to match Facebook’s. Click here to learn more about attribution. 


10. Why does my sales on GA do not match Facebook sales?

This also happens due to difference in the attribution models. Google Analytics, by default, uses the last click 30-day model. However, GA allows us to change the attribution model as per our requirements.


11. How are my combined Google and Facebook sales more than the actual website sales?

This primarily happens due to the overlap of the attribution model between the two platforms. The attribution model that Facebook follows only considers Facebook ads as touchpoints. Additionally, while attributing, Google goes for the last click whereas Facebook goes for the last touch (includes both view and click). So for instance, let's say before making a purchase, a prospective consumer has been served both Google and Facebook ads. Now if the last click was on a Google ad, Google will attribute that sale to itself. However, since Facebook only takes into account its own ads, the sale will be also attributed to Facebook. To learn more about this, click here.


12. What to do to decrease the overlap between Google and Facebook sales?

Although some extent of overlap will always be there, this can be reduced by changing the attribution window from the AdYogi platform. So instead of 28-day click 28-day view, you could opt for 28-day click 1-day view. Click here to learn more about attribution windows. 

13. How can we increase the AOV?

There are various ways by which we can improve the Average Order Value. Firstly, we can create a smart ad using the high-value product set under the AdYogi Category. This will help us in promoting the higher value products more and hence, increasing the AOV. Secondly, on the catalogue level, we can exclude the lower value products. Applying this rule will ensure that none of the lower value products are shown in the smart and dynamic ads. Click here to learn more about AOV and ways to increase it.


14. Why was my ad rejected on Facebook?

Ads on Facebook gets reviewed before they go live. If these ads do not comply with Facebook's ad policies, they get rejected. As long as the product being advertised does not belong to the category which Facebook does not allow, with slight changes, the error can be rectified and the ads can then be made active.

If there are no errors, an ad should be created on Facebook within half an hour. Once the ad is created on Facebook, the review process may take up to 24 hours. 


17. How much time should be given to ads to perform? 

Generally, a week would be an ideal time that should be given to an ad to perform. Apart from the time factor, we need to make sure that the ad should spend adequate amount. These two factors together help us judge the performance of the ads.  Once an ad has served a sufficient number of impressions, an upwards or downwards graph icon will reflect against it on the AdYogi platform to show how the ad is performing. In case the ad is not spending enough, click here to understand why could that be and what can to done to resolve this.
