Take Keywords first.
Consider you’re selling a baseball bat here, then possible keywords can be following. They’re categorized into three categories (and they’re not the only ones).
|Depending on Material||Depending on Pricing||Innovative Keyword ideas|
|baseball bats wood||cheap wooden baseball bats for crafts||wood bats youth|

Once you enter the keyword in the dialog box and hit enter, the estimates for the potential reach, competition, and bids for that keyword are available for you.
Your bid can be greater than or equal to the suggested bid.
Take Bid Value Now
Since the Wish Marketplace shows suggested bid, so how to determine which products to market and which bid value to choose as they vary as per keywords.
To understand it better, first, you need to understand CPM (Cost per mille), i.e. the cost you’re willing to pay wish to get 1000 impressions for an item.
Wish suggests a formula to calculate CPM which is: C.P.M. <= Gross Profit Margin * Conversion Rate * CTR * 1000
So let’s understand all the terminologies:
Gross Profit Margin: The Profit you earn on a single unit
Conversion Rate: Ratio of buyers to visitors (*) 100
CTR: Ratio of clicks to impressions (*)
So let’s consider your gross profit margin is $30. The conversion rate for the product is 3%, and the CTR is 1%. Which means for every 1000 impressions you sell, 0.3 units of the item.
Therefore, for 10,000 impressions, you get to sell three units.
Then, CPM <= 30*.03*.01*1000,
C.P.M <= $9
Now that CPM for 1000 is $9.
Now that you know about the CPM figure out if the suggested bid is within the range of CPM.
If suggested Bid > CPM, then you don’t need to bid at all since it will eat into your profits.
Now, Allocate the Budget for the campaign, Wish also provide recommendations for the budget with details (as shown in the figure)
Allocate the budget and Run the campaign, once you’ve started the campaign, start reviewing your campaigns after the items have received at least 10000 impressions.
It will be easy to analyze if you can sell your product on Wish more efficiently or if you need to strategize accordingly.
Product Boost is beneficial if you have a high converting product with a significant margin. As wish understands its buyers, its native ad system suggests items to customers based on their previous purchases, so the conversion rate is always higher.
