Best Practices to  Start Scaling Your Ad Account

Having a pixel on your website is a must to track user behaviour, site conversions, web traffic, and many other metrics. If you have the events API together for better performance, this will work as a bonus.

Make sure you have one pixel per website to avoid double tracking and turn on Advanced Matching to fetch more data.

We have a detailed discourse on the process of how to improve signal quality with Pixel and Events API, Tracking on Point, and Start-up Phase. 


How to accelerate performance through multiple optimization goals?

If you run a web conversion campaign with limited campaign signals, use the upper-funnel event (eg. View Content) campaign to start off. 
After a while, set up a next-phased campaign optimizing for mid-funnel events (for example, Add-to-Cart).

And then move on to a 3rd-phase campaign optimizing for deep-funnel events (eg. Complete Payment).

Set Your Budget

Most people ask how to go about setting a budget. TikTok is a branding platform but when it comes to CPM (Cost Per Mile) it is quite lower compared to other platforms.

However, when we talk about performance, the expenditure is a little more. We recommend a minimum of $288 a day for a performance marketing campaign.  

And It's Testing Time!

You can test your ads on various parameters like:

  • Automatics VS Broad Targeting
  • General Interest VS Purchase Intent
  • In-Feed vs Spark Ads
  • Product Sale VS Conversion Ads
  • Highest Value VS Minimum ROAS



TikTok has become an increasingly popular platform for advertisers to reach their target audience. Utilizing features like TikTok's algorithm, soundtracks, and influencers can also help you reach a wider audience and drive better results. By incorporating these strategies into your TikTok advertising strategy, you can maximize the potential of this powerful platform and take your brand to new heights.
