How to target categories in the Custom Audiences Segment


On the Perpetua app, users can bid on both product and category targets in Sponsored Display (SD) campaigns.

Users that want to target a category can do so for both the Product Targeting and Custom Audience segments.

When targeting categories in a Product segment, there are 2 options:

  • Target the entire Category (eg. Electronics)

  • Create a variation of the category to target a more specific audience. This is called Category Refinements as you are refining the general category

    • eg. I want to specifically target the Microsoft brand in the Electronics category, where

      • The price range is $50-100

      • The rating is 4 to 5 stars

      • The product is eligible for Prime shipping

When targeting categories in a Custom Audience segment, you can do so through launching a new segment within a new or existing goal.

    2. Click into an existing SD goal, and click Add Segment. Select Custom Audiences Targeting.
