We closely monitored the performance of the ads using metrics such as click-through rate, conversion rate, and cost-per-lead, and leveraged the marketing programs where conversion rates were high and cost-per-lead was low to drive adjustments to targeting, ad copy, and landing pages as needed to continually improve ad performance
