You have probably heard of Performance Max campaigns or PMax campaigns. PMax campaigns are a type of ad campaign that is designed to help you get the most out of your advertising spend by maximizing your ad performance.
Performance Max is a new goal-based campaign type in Google Ads that uses machine learning to get your ads in front of people who are more likely to convert. PMax campaigns are different from other types of ad campaigns because they focus on optimizing your ad delivery to get you the best results possible. This means that your ads will be shown to more people who are likely to convert, and you’ll pay less per conversion.
To create a Performance Max campaign, you’ll need to set up a conversion tracking pixel on your website first. Once you have the pixel set up, you can create your campaign in the Google Ads interface.
When creating your campaign, you’ll need to select “Performance Max” as your campaign type. From there, you’ll need to set your goals. You can choose from three different goal types:
– Website Traffic
Once you’ve selected your goals, you’ll need to set your budget and bid amounts. After that, you’re ready to launch your campaign!
Monitoring your campaign’s performance is key to ensuring its success. Google Ads provides a number of tools and reports that you can use to track your campaign’s progress. Check-in on your campaigns regularly to see how they’re performing and make changes as necessary.
By following these steps, you can set up a Performance Max campaign that is designed for success. With the right goals and monitoring in place, you can maximize your advertising spend and get the most out of your campaigns.
To create a PMax campaign, you’ll need to set up a few different things:
Target CPA: This is the cost-per-acquisition goal that you want to reach with your campaign. Your target CPA should be based on your historical data and should be achievable with your current budget.
Bid Adjustments: These are the settings that you’ll use to adjust your bids based on conversion data. You can use bid adjustments to make sure that you’re not spending more than your target CPA and to optimize your ad delivery for conversions.
Ad Delivery Options: There are a few different options for ad delivery, and you’ll need to choose the one that’s right for your campaign. The three options are Standard, Accelerated, and Automatic.
- Standard: With Standard ad delivery, your ads will be shown evenly throughout the day. This is a good option if you’re just starting out with PPC advertising and don’t have a lot of data to work with.
- Accelerated: Accelerated ad delivery will show your ads more often during the times when they’re most likely to be clicked. This is a good option if you have a lot of data to work with and you want to get your ads in front of as many people as possible.
- Automatic: Automatic ad delivery is similar to Accelerated, but it will also adjust your bids based on conversion data. This is the best option if you want to get the most out of your PPC campaign and you have a lot of data to work with.

There are a few things that you should keep in mind when you’re setting up your PMax campaign: 1) Your target CPA should be achievable with your current budget.
2) You should have a lot of data to work with so that you can make informed decisions about bid adjustments and ad delivery options.
3) Your ads should be relevant to your target audience and should offer a clear call to action.
4) Your landing pages should be optimized for conversions.
5) You should always be testing different aspects of your campaign to see what works best.

Note: Smart Shopping and Local campaigns will be sunsetted and rolled into PMax shortly. If you’re using either of these campaign types, you should migrate to PMax as soon as possible.
