  11. Select the strategy in the Next-Best-Action Designer.
    1. In the Pega Customer Decision Hub portal, click Next-Best-ActionDesignerChannels.
    2. In the Media strategy section, click Configure.
    3. Select the strategy which you created.
    4. In the Paid destinations section, for each paid destination, select the type of bidding results.
Result: When the selected strategy runs, the audiences it creates in the destination platform indicate how much the click from an individual in that audience would increase the individual's priority to accept the offer. High-priority audiences have higher expected business value, and therefore you may be willing to set a higher max bid for their interactions.
For Troy Murphy, executing the media strategy communicates to Facebook that if he clicks an ad for the Platinum credit card, he has a very high priority to accept that offer. When he accesses his Facebook feed, he is now more likely to see ads for the Platinum credit card.
