Manually adjusting target ACoS and daily budgets for your campaigns in preparation for big shopping events can be very time-consuming. If you are an OG Perpetua user, you may be familiar with our Prime Day and BFCM Strategies features which allow users to configure automated changes prior to the big day.

With our Scheduled Budget & ACoS Changes Strategy, users are now able to capture traffic during peak hours beyond the holiday season. You can now have Perpetua adjust your target ACoS and budget following a customized schedule for any day of the year. This will be a permanent feature and scheduled changes will be applied across selected Sponsored Product goals.
