    Since Decisive doesn't support the cost variable, how can I track my ROI using Voluum? I know it can be done in excel but how can I do this automatically in Voluum?

    Hey Snarry, thanks for your reply. Decisive doesn't have "bid" parameter for cost.
    Here is the full list of available parameters: Supported Tracking Macros

    I may be wrong but if I chose CPC and $0.01 for cost, do I still need to enter "bid" parameter in the traffic source?

    So what didn't you understand ?
    • Auto – this option is only available if the traffic source is setup with a cost parameter and placeholder, see the below 50onRed Intext example.
    So in your case, NO. You will not need that parameters.

    Use
    • CPC – the cost will be calculated based on the number of visits to the campaign URL multiplied by the CPC value

    Hey Snarry,

    I tried experimenting with one of my campaigns. I used CPC with a cost of $0.01. Instead of showing the actual cost from decisive in voluum, its showing me only $0.01 per click which is not accurate. What am I doing wrong here?

    Could Adsbridge count CPM?

    Unfortunately, for now we don't have an opportunity to track CPM.

    Voluum is currently working on this as we speak. Probably will launch this in 1-2 months.
    Thrive has the function already, in case you're interested in.
