Advertisers can pick longer windows that are more under control with their conversion goals. TikTok is rolling out a new ‘Attribution Manager’ to provide more Ad performance tracking capacity.
With the new feature, TikTokers can simply customize attribution windows on the TikTok Ads Manager.
Since advertisers are different based on their target market, tapping an ad can also vary. E.g., if the nature of the ad is to grow brand awareness, a like is enough. Otherwise, to sell a product, service, or item, the conversion stage i.e. when the prospective customer wants to buy the service may contain some questions first and so take more time.
With the new feature, the default attribution windows can be set to 7-day click or 1-day view. In other words, the prospects have 1 day to convert when they view an ad, or 7 days when they click on it.
The CTA (click-through attribution window) can be set from 24 hours to 28 days, while VTA (view-through attribution window) can vary from off to up to seven days.
At a glance, the options for the advertisers are
Click-through (CTA): 1, 7, 14, 28 days
View-through (VTA): off, 1 and 7 day
Those advertisers running web campaigns via the TikTok Pixel or Events API can have access to Attribution Manager. And for app promoters, when TikTok Ads Manager becomes self-attributing, Attribution Manager is activated.
