How to Estimate Your CPA of TikTok In-Feed Ad?

For most of our clients, the cost of advertising on Tiktok is crucial factor in deciding whether to use this platform. Many have been using Facebook or Instagram has the main advertising channel to reach out to customers and getting leads. No matter how appealing TikTok is to the users, or young generation spends hours a day on the App, it is not commercially viable if the CPA is not ideal.

Most commonly, clients will benchmark TikTok cost per acquisition of lead, against that of Facebook. If a client is getting a lead (e.g. form type of contact) for 2 USD in Facebook, he would wish TikTok is at largest doing the same. Whilst it is fair to say the TikTok uses different ways to appeal to a different set of audience, the general idea is that cost is the primary concern and factor for any business decision related to advertising.

In TikTok, we recommend our clients to set up campaigns using conversion as object. This allows a client to gauge precisely how much is the cost for getting a customer. In addition, advertisements with conversion as objectives allow TikTok engines to understand your customer base well and better optimize for you.

For E-commerce clients, leads for sales are the primary goal. We recommend e-commerce clients to use Conversion as the ad campaign objective. The following steps need to be performed, to use TikTok ads to bring customers to you.

1. Prepare a single product landing page with good promotion, e.g. a steep discount, a limited time sale, a luck draw, a free give-away.

2. Set up the Pixel in the landing page, preview it and test it.

3. Make 5 to 10 videos (they can be similar) and make sure the content of the video is tailor-made to the landing page in step one.

For details, please contact our marketing team for a PPT or a call to understand further the details.

Once you set up the advertisement in TikTok, there is a quick and dirty way to estimate (and optimise) your conversion cost (Cost Per Action, e.g. a form submission).

Formula : CPA = CPM/(CTR x CVR)*1000.

  • CPA: Cost per Action
  • CPM: Cost per Mille Exposure
  • CTR: Click Through Rate
  • CVR: Conversion Rate

For instance, if the average cost for CPM of your industry is 50 cents, and the Click Through Rate of your video is 2%, and the Conversion Rate of your landing page is 2.5%, then your CPA of each conversion is about 1 dollar. You can find the CPM, CTR and CVR in your backend of TikTok advertising interface (after opening an account with us). CTR and CVR can be usually tested with your video; and CPM is most of the time stable for an industry – check with other industry players or with our marketing team.

If the CPA cost is not ideal, you can:

  • Optimizing Video and Landing Page to get more effectiveness in CTR (Click through rate) and CVR (Conversion rate). Make a good video and landing page saves you a lot of $$$!
  • Make more than one video (we recommend 5 to 10 video every week) to let the TikTok machine learning process help you to test, which one is the best performing one, and increase ad budget on this one (increase price of duplicate this ad/ad group).
  • Change your landing page for different promotions to appeal to customers.

Your CPA will be naturally improved if the TikTok AI learns about your product. This happens after 3 days of putting up your first advertisement video and have sufficient budget to run it. Continuous improvements will yield amazing results for your advertisements and so do start early.

Analysis A story type video, promoting Oolong tea bags. Tea bags are common products that are hard to market unless you have a brand. So this video made a funny story to attract attention of the audience. A rich granny is worried about her granddaughter not getting married. In a fancy portrait of her extravaganza lifestyle, the granny mentioned a special Oolong tea bag which is her daily essential. As the tea bags ran out, she orders a handsome guy to deliver and her granddaughter fell in love with the delivery guy. Whilst the whole story was fast-paced, it slowed down when it came to the features of the advertised Oolong tea bags, and the audience’ attention were well caught.
