    I am targeting a keyword with a huge search volume.

    That means there’re many users/searchers of that query that won’t convert, simply because they do not meet the psychographic profile of my ideal users (those who re more likely to buy because they have determined purchase habits, etc).

    The only way to make the campaign profitable is to show my ads only to those who’re likely to buy what I offer. (Since the search volume is so high)

    Im currently using manual CPC (thus bidding the same for all the queries, included the ones that aren’t likely to convert) and Im getting a 0’2% conversion rate.

    I need at least a 0’5% to break-even.

    What conversion rate do you think I could achieve with smart-bidding?
    Do you think my plan makes any sense or I should give up or try different things?

    So far I have driven 2000 clicks and 5 conversions (more or less)
    The campaign has been running for 12-15 days so far

    Are you just using one keyword? Like using the word phone, compared to mobile phone or pre paid phone?

    you expect too much from Google Ads and a bidding strategy

    make sure first you target the right audience and offer the value proposition they look for

    look at the CRO side of your website

    Google Ads is a little part of a whole marketing work

    0,2% conversion rate shows there is a problem whether with your audience and keywords or with your offer and website

    normally don’t play nicely together.

    Could you not find keywords that reflect a higher intent to purchase than what you’re currently targeting?
