Cobiro was founded by Bo Krogsgaard and Anders Ibsen. Since 2004, they’ve been at the forefront of some of the most successful teams in online marketing and conversion, driving multimillion dollar sales growth and visitors to e-commerce sites powered by Google AdWords.

Google AdWords is a brilliant but complex tool. Its highly advanced proprietary algorithms make managing online advertising campaigns that drive traffic and convert into sales extremely tricky - it’s a system that’s hard to master unless you’re an expert. Bo and Anders saw that there was an increasing need for a tool that would take the pain away from set-up and ongoing management of Adwords campaigns for the small business owner. But no such tool existed, so they set to work in creating one...

And so Cobiro came to be. A system that is super easy to use, fully optimized to help small businesses grow, and free. It has the intelligence to stop bidding on words that don’t convert. It helps you create the best text advertising campaign in less than a few minutes. It never rests, learning all the time from the web and its human supervisors, whilst you get on with running your business.

Today, Cobiro manages more than 800 million keywords through its neural network, in over 40 languages. Built and run by an amazingly talented team of developers, online marketeers and UX experts from all corners of the world on behalf of more than 25,000 happy online stores, we’re helping businesses grow every day.
