Answers to some of the most common questions about Shape
Shape’s Budgeting Platform is PPC software designed to help advertisers track and manage their campaign spends against set budget targets. The Budgeting Platform features intelligent automation tools and alerting to help advertisers easily track spend for hundreds of clients. The ADI is a powerful data engine that helps advertisers build their own PPC solutions. It combines a powerful multi-channel API, managed data warehouse, and reporting solution.
Shape helps you hit your budget targets by automating intelligent changes to your daily budgets and campaign statuses. Although you have the ability to edit keyword bids in our Budgeting Platform, Shape is not a bid management platform. Shape does not interfere with bidding rules you may be running; however, you cannot create bid rules or alter bidding strategies within our platform.
Shape allows anyone to create one free account that grants them access to both the platform and ADI. Our free tier allows you to manage cross-channel PPC spend for one client and up to 20 budgets with access to all features. Likewise, Shape will generate an ADI for anyone who links a single data source to Shape (regardless if you use the budgeting platform). You will receive access to 5 free campaign-level data views.
Generating multiple free Shape accounts for your clients is prohibited as outlined in Shape’s TOS. If your business is found to be in violation, Shape has the right to terminate your accounts.
