What is it? Now live in Clickcast is the addition of an inline bid management tool. On the Clickcast activity page by campaign view, customers can change their bids and budgets directly within their current workflow. Inline Bid-Manager is a more intuitive, productive way for advertisers to make educated bidding & budget management decisions within Clickcast, across all their campaigns.

Why use it? Inline bid management gives Clickcast customers the ability to make faster bid updates (CPC & CPA), adjust monthly or weekly budgets, and disable publishers directly within the activity page. Given that bid-management is a large part of an advertisers’ day-to-day operation, the ability to edit bids & budgets all from the Clickcast activity tab alongside publisher performance data, is a valuable, time-saving tool.
