Some of them even went ahead and tried it manually to see how effective was the ROAS when they increased their budgets. Some saw a significant shift, some saw no effect and repented to have spent those additional dollars.
Whichever result you witnessed, I am sure you asked yourself, “Is there a better way to test this?”
We are here to let you know there is.
