We have presented a sample below where our brand received 1,927,755 impressions for the Health & Households Category. We do not know how many competitors are existing. But we know the median received 1,875,690 impressions for Health & Households. This means that our brand is receiving more than half of our competitors but less than the 25% quartile. It is hard to guess how many impressions the top peer is receiving but it is not less than 5,271,866.
Our data about ACoS seems interesting, here it is easy to see how the above and below advertisers are doing. Our Sports Nutrition Products is the best category for this brand to advertise because they are extremely profitable. It is much better than the bottom 25% peer.
If you find your impressions are more than the median or top 25% peer, then you need to concentrate on that category to have a profitable business. If you think impressions are enough but CTR is low then improve the message on your ads to receive the buyer’s attention. For your poor ACoS, you need to lower your bids to a level so that you can also have a reasonable profit. For low impressions increase the bids and budgets and take the advantages of your ad quality.
The Brand Category Benchmark is an important tool to develop your business strategy. It will help you to create profitable ads and to minimize the cost of your advertisement.
