Convert store visits into revenue

If you want a Search Ads 360 bid strategy to optimize bids for store visits, you can convert store visits into the revenue goal that you want to achieve.

Decide on a value for each store visit and then create a formula column that converts the number of store visits to revenue using the to_money parameter. For example, if each store visit is valued at $5, you could create the following formula column and then select it a Search Ads 360 bid strategy with a revenue goal.

Store visits formula column = ($5 * To_money(store_visit))
