Thriving in a CBO World: How Bidalgo uses Facebook’s Campaign Budget Optimization

By Team Bidalgo

The switch to Campaign Budget Optimization (CBO) is among the most talked-about topics in the marketing industry these days. While the feature itself was introduced nearly two years ago, it wasn’t mandatory – until now. At least some activity will become CBO-only in September. The end-goal for Facebook is to have all campaigns running with CBO.

But what is Facebook’s Campaign Budget Optimization, and how will it impact your activity? At Bidalgo, we’ve been exploring CBO for a while – mostly for mobile apps campaigns – and found it to be a very versatile tool. It goes way beyond its stated goal, which is to “optimize budgets across ad sets”. By moving the budget setting to the campaign level, and deciding in real time which of the ad sets should get which piece of that budget, Facebook had created an AI-powered testing machine.
