What is good CTR?
There is no right answer. CTR depends on many factors. For example, the niche, time, seasonality, level of competition.
You need to remember:
- High CTR reduces the cost per click. You can put a low bid without losing traffic.
- The higher the CTR, the less time it takes to test. Important: use the relevant creative.
- A high CTR gives you a competitive advantage. It helps to beat the competitors without raising rates and losing profit.
- Pay attention to ads with a high level of competition and a small CTR. The more competition, the less clickability for each competitor. In narrow niches you need to look the other way: the user choice is small, so the interest to each offer is higher.
CTR is the cool thing, but also don’t forget to pay attention to the conversion rate and ROI, calculate the maximum cost per click which you can afford. Improve your campaigns and take profit with Leadbit!
